While I was gettting a brake servo from the scrappies a couple of weeks ago, I "Liberated" a reverse light switch to replace what I though was the knackered one in my 900. So with Circuit tester in hand yesterday, I checked the new one made good circuit. Then I pulled the old one out. That made good curcuit too. Bugger. So what the hell, fit the new one anyway. And magically, the drivers side reverse light worked straight away. Nothing on the passenger side though. Took the cover off, pull the bulb, checked it with the tester. Good curcuit, and faint glow from the bulb with the 9v. Checked the connectors in the socket no curcuit. Bugger. Pulled it out properly, and made sure it was all grounded. Got a good curcuit. Put it back together, still good curcuit, added the bulb. Bulb wouldn't light. Bugger. Still one is better than none. Well bugger me, at dinner when I got back to work but both were working. Amazing. I must have impressed the viking gods of Saab with my efforts and they rewareded me with a little helping hand. -- Carl Robson (The poster formerly known as Skodapilot) http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
