On my 98 A4 1.8T I had the same problem. The problem was the entire headlight switch on the stearing column went bad. I dont know if the headlight switch has anything to do with the reverse lights but from my own experience the reverse light problem is caused by thhe reverse light switch which is in the gearbox. I got a price of
Either the reverse switch is defective or out of adjustment.
the reverse light switch is either out of adjustment. or broken. new one should be fairly cheap
The 2002 Cavalier has a reverse light switch. The switch can be bad, or have a loose connection causing the lights not to work.
Either the switch that turns the backup lights on is out of adjustment, or has failed in the on position.
Check your fuses
Where is the fuse located for the reverse lights
Both a stuck reverse switch and shorted wiring can be causes for reverse lights to stay on. Under normal circumstances, the reverse lights turn off as soon as the vehicle is shifted out of reverse.
Try bypassing the reverse light switch that plugs into the transmission. If your reverse lights come on, voila! Problem solved. Buy a new switch.
Sounds like the reverse switch is either damaged, or wired backwards... Did you have your clutch done recently?
check the reverse light switch ,usually found on side of transmission
This sounds like a bad light switch. The head lights are usually wired seperately from all other lights so the only common point is at the switch.
The problem is the reverse light switch. It is located on the top of the transmission that should sloved your problem.
Bad bulbs can be the cause of your reverse lights not working on your 1999 Toyota Tacoma. A problem with the reverse switch or bad wires can also be the cause of your reverse lights not working.
switch on the transmission which sends a signal to the reverse lights when shift is in reverse......... is shot. You need a mechanic.
Well when you are driving the alternator is at a constant speed then when you slow down the alternator sort of skips a beat causing the lights to dim!
You can't. It's either dipped or side lights I'm afraid. And if I see you driving on side lights you'll get a clip round the ear.
Turn the lights on with the main switch - either side lights or driving lights are fine.With your hand/fingers stil on the main switch pull it gently back, the first notch/click is front fog lights only the 2nd notch/click is front and rear fog lights.
Turning the lights on put a load on the alternator causing the idle speed to drop. I would have the battery and charging system tested to make sure everything is okay. The battery may be on its way out.
"Back up lights" are the same as reverse lights. Lights that "turn on" when vehicle is put into reverse gear to illuminate the rear of the car so you can see when backing up.
Check the light relay circuits for the lighting. Either a relay or electronic circuit is causing the problem of the lights staying on
Not hard at all if you are talking electric replacement Just tap into fuel line close to the tank and run wires to blank spot in fuse box Or wire to reverse lights, but that means you will be driving around with reverse lights on all the time!
Depends on if it's a standard or automatic, If it's an automatic the shift linkage may have slipped forcing it to be stuck in reverse. Also causing it not to start, since cars are only supposed to start in neutral and park.
check fuses, check bulbs, from there see if there is a grond for your reverse lights that may need cleaning. If still no lights, make sure there is a good wire back to the transmission for your lights. Still no luck, look into the sensor on tranny for your reverse lights. Good luck.
Yes it has two reverse lights
Yea its an electric or body comtrole module .about 400.00to repair at dealer. Will cause lights to flicker off & on and sometimes horn will chirp also while driving
