So i figure there is a sensor in the rear that needs to be fixed. Wrong! Then the airbag fuze that connects to the turn signals and reverse lights keeps blowing out. I replaced them 10 times and the second i shift to reverse it pops again. So i have exhausted all ideas that I or my chiltons manual have been able to come up with. If anyone has an advice i would appreciate it.
Well first of all,At the are where the hit and run happened
is the damage only to the bumper or any part of the quarter panel? Because if fuse is popping at the release of
reverse gear the shifter enables current to the reverse lamps.Look behind inner panel for wire harness being pinched somewhere there,what you have is a dead short.
If not check anywhere along that line,Remember the logic,
fuse shorts out when gear selector is engaged in reverse
so whatever receives power when reverse switch is on to ground that where the short will be.Check all ur bulbs too!
Go get the electrical schematics for rev-lmp.switch & multi-function switch & clock spring.
