Interior "reverse" lights - what are they?
 
I have noticed two amber lights that come on at the back of the third brake light whenever the GC is put into reverse - what are these for?

X2 on what the Swede says. The closer you get to something the more lights will come on. Also, notice that if your radio is on, it will shut off when the lights are on.

you know you are in trouble when you start seeing red lights in addition to the amber ones... means you are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too close to something. It is actually a code that is connected directly to your insurance provider as they will know the instant you hit something while you were in reverse. :lol:

I wish I had these sometimes.. I contemplated adding them but it's not worth the $$ but if you towed a lot, it could be a sound investment.

Hey, thanks for the info. Guess I have never noticed them because when backing up I am usually looking at the side mirrors - can't get used to using the camera!!

I use the camera and all three mirrors.... I LOVE the camera.... except of course when the lens is filthy...... then I go back to the prehistoric way of reversing.... using the mirrors....

Mount a front grille guard on the rear bumper - old skool - reverse till you hear "bump" or "ouch" - FTW :D
