It is actually to "improve" the shifts of the automatic transmission. I can tell a difference when I do this but it does use more gas and I don't like that. It is not really a sporty car so I have a sports car to drive if I want firmer shifts.

How do you wire your 87 samurai backup lights bypassing the backup light transmission mounted switch?

You would have to literally run a wire from the battery through a fuse and then to a toggle switch and then on to the backup lights, this will only function when the switch is on and will have nothing to do with the transmission being in reverse. This is essentially the same as putting a toggle switch across the transmission mounted switch (assuming the transmission switch is not shorted).

I have a 1994 GMC Sonoma SLE v6 W engine and automatic trans Under the battery is what appears to be a vacuum switch. If it was bad could it cause me to loose reverse and slip in other gears?

I would have to say probably not. That switch is probably part of the emission system. So the chances of the switch is probably less than 5%. The problems you are having are in the transmission itself. When was the last time you changed or checked the fluid? The transmission should be serviced. This is a vacuum switch that controls the 4 wheel drive it has nothing to do with the transmission

Back up lights on a 97 Jeep Wrangler not working bulbs OK fuse OK Thoughts?

There is a switch in the transmission (manual) and I believe also automatic that triggers your backup lights when you move (change gears) into reverse. If the switch (in the transmission) does not touch (trigger) the backup light switch; or if the switch is not working; you will not have any reverse lights. Also , if you have had any changes in your transmission due to lifting the body, or changing the original transmission; the lever that triggers the switch may not be able to come in contact with the backup light switch in the transmission. If you have this switch replaced by a garage it may run around $160 for the switch and another $100 to $200 for labor. If the transmission does not trigger the backup light switch in the first place ,due to changes in the transmission, or a body lift; then changing the switch will not make any difference; the backup lights still will not work.
