Hi guys and gals


So I have a couple of problems on my Proton Arena 2009 1.5 GLX and hoping someone could help me out.


Firstly the reverse lights don't work. First thing I checked was the bulbs of course, they're fine. Then check the reverse light switch, that's also fine. So I thought it could only be wiring, I checked for continuity on the plugs for the reverse lights, and that also seems fine.. Any ideas for what else it could be that's causing the reverse lights not to work?

A friend of mine has 3 Proton Arena's. Two of them, reverse lights don't work, same story as mine, only the one vehicles work..


The other problem is that my electrical mirrors and 12V socket stopped working. I check the fuse box but there is no fuse for the 12V circuit, checked all fuses any case and they all seem fine. Radio still works though (original factory fitted radio) So I'm guessing that does not work off the same circuit. again any idea where I can check for the problem?


Thanks in advance all.


P.S I know the best is to take it to an auto electrician, but I don't have the cash for that right now.

Have you tested whether any current reaching the bulb area? All others checked, then need wireman to check the wiring system
