Electrical faults - rear of the car

Post by Jth1993 » Tue May 14, 2019 1:43 pm

Hi All,

I have an electrical issue with my 2015 Corsa Energy.

A few days ago I had a dashboard warning to "check reversing lamp". On that same day the boot wouldn't open - it wasn't even making the sound as if it was trying to unlock, just no response at all.

Now the rear wiper doesn't respond at all when trying to turn operate it. Appreciate three different issues here, however seems strange all three have happened within pretty much a day of each other.

Was wondering if anybody had any idea of what it could be before taking it to the garage?

Sound like a bad earth connection, only thing common.

I had the reverse light issue. Turned out to be a damaged wire. Had it repaired under warranty but there was also a recall for the wiring harness to be better protected as it enters the boot
