My reversing lights, rear parking sensors and retro fit reversing camera have all stopped working. Other lights in cluster work fine. Where do I locate the reversing switch which I suspect is faulty - cannot find a location guide online. How do I reach it and where is best place to buy a spare?

When I find switch I want to disconnect the wiring plug and then short the terminals to make sure the switch is faulty before I order a new one.

Should add this is a 2011 Santa Fe 7 seater diesel.

Thanks in advance for any help or photos!
Cheers
Alan

Assuming it's an automatic trans the switch is usually in the transmission range switch, gear selector switch or whatever Hyundai calls it.

You can't stand backwards on stairs......

Sorry should have said it was a manual transmission. Any ideas where it is located as engine bay is quite cramped. Thanks.

Probably on the side of the transmission. One wire coming out of the one on my Gen Coupe.

Before faffing about on the gearbox you might want to try replacing the B/UP LP fuse (engine bay fusebox).

Based on your user name you and @AUTOSPARK may be neighbors.



Best practices for requesting help:


* If you haven't done so fill in your vehicle info and profile page. Shows up to the left
* Be sure you are in the correct forum for your vehicle.
* Do a search for your problem. A lot of stuff has been asked and answered.
* Do not double post for the same problem.
* Give the model year....Engine size...transmission type (auto or standard)
* VIN number can be very helpful.
* Did you buy the vehicle new, if not, how many miles were on it when purchased? How many miles on it now?
* Describe the problem the best you can.
* Tell us what has been tried, if anything.
* If the vehicle has been to a repair facility it would be nice if you can scan or take picture of the bill and attach it to the post.
* If your vehicle is under warranty you should have the dealer check it out. If it's an issue they see many times they will generate a safety recall or do a TSB. This is how they know.


This information can save a lot of time and get you the answers you need much faster.


Thanks,
Welcome aboard.

Whenever you have an electrical problem, always start diagnosing it by checking ALL the fuses. It only takes 5 mins or so and will often save you hours of grief and head scratching.

Glad I was able to help.
