Help please :)
I have a problem with my reverse light.
It comes on for 1 sec when reverse is selected then goes back off.
i have checked the fuse and changed the reverse switch.
Could this be a BSI problem ? would a reset sort the problem ?

thank you for taking the time to read

Short together the two pins on the reverse light switch plug. If it all works OK you have either a new faulty switch, its wrongly fitted/wrong one or pin in gearbox which presses the switch has worn

i have shorted the plug and it still does the same thing comes on and goes back off.
i have chased and tested the wiring loom from the bulb all the way back to the bsi. so i am thinking the start of a bad bsi or maybe a fault that a rest might sort ????

Are the bulb holder contacts clean and strong as are they gripping the bulb?. As the bulb lights and full power is drawn it might be too much for the contacts!

Yes the bulb holder is fine. I have even used a 12v bulb tester along the wire and still same result, on then off again
