Question Back up lights

Are wiring diagrams available for back up lights. Ours blow the backup lite fuse as soon as it is replaced.

Yes, you can PM me for details. I have paper copies, 18"x24" for the pre-Vansco (03 and before) Alpines. These are schematics, so they tell you what is connected to what. They don't tell where the wire route goes thru the coach. In some circuits the color of wire & gauge are noted.

Does yours blow the fuse precisely when you put it in, or when you switch into reverse? If the former, problem is not the light circuit itself, but some other thing has shorted out. If the latter, the short is in the light circuit.

I suspect a short in the hot side of the circuit because it blows the fuse. Check for a wire rubbing before you suspect the Vansco system. Pre V coaches, it should be a matter of tracing out where the wires go. I don't know if the reverse switch on the transmission is like a car type, but that is what it sounds like to me, it's going to ground when you place the unit in Reverse, and causing the fuse to blow. You might call Allison and see how that circuit works as well.

Back Up Lights

To Engineer Mike. I would like to get the diagrams. Postal Mail would be ok, I prefer not to enter my mail address or e-mail on this forum, so don't know how to make contact for mail delivery.

Thanks-----------------Doug
