I found a burned fuse for the reverse/turn signal circuit. When I replace it blows right away and I notice the right reverse light coming on and fading out as the fuse blows.

I do not have a trailer plug and the wiring behind all the tail lights looks fine. All of the turn signal bulbs and sockets look in good shape and so do the reverse light bulbs and sockets.

I have noticed that my reverse lights have been staying on when the head lights are on and maybe other times too.

Last thing I did last night was to try to get the reverse light switch off, but it would not come off. I noticed that this morning the battery was completely dead.

I'm thinking take the reverse light switch connector off attach a lower amp fuse across the connector terminals and then try it again.

All the wiring in the back up to the left rear door looks ok.

I have a receiver hitch, but I don't see any trailer plug wiring. I noticed on one wiring diagram pic of the rear wiring what looks like trailer plug wiring wrapped around the rear cross member, but I can't see it do I need to take the rear bumper off to see it? I know trailer plugs can cause issues.

My hazards work fine. My issue with finding the flasher is I thought there were two seperate flashers for the turn signal lights and hazard lights, but there is only one.

I don't see a trailer harness there here is the pic that made me think it was behind the bumper.




Is this the correct reverse light switch?

I thought the wires plugged directly in the switch, but this looks like there is a pigtail on the switch that connects to the wiring harness.

Looks like the right switch but it has been awhile since I worked on a standard. Any suzuki dealer sshould stock them..

I think that is only for the 1996 and newer tracker/kicks mine is a 93.

I pulled the glove box and looked there is not a flasher on the right side on mine.

If you are looking for the turn signal relay, it is attached to the ECU and has a green, ellow/white and black wire running from it. If you follow the green or yel/white wire from the ignition switch, you will be able to locate it.
