Replace the bulb first, if this does not work try the reverse switch.
by going to a body shop
there is no fuse for the reverse lights check the netural safety switch it may be out of adjustment or shorted.
check hazard flashers or replace the flashers under dash ,this happed to mine I have a '96 caravan 3 speed had the same problem. Had to replace the neutral safety switch on the transmission. small part, cost only $20 from the dealer. good luck to ya!
brake switch ???
Where is the fuse located for the reverse lights
Check your fuses
Both a stuck reverse switch and shorted wiring can be causes for reverse lights to stay on. Under normal circumstances, the reverse lights turn off as soon as the vehicle is shifted out of reverse.
Try bypassing the reverse light switch that plugs into the transmission. If your reverse lights come on, voila! Problem solved. Buy a new switch.
Check your brake pads.
The switch on the transmission is bad. It usually looks like a bolt with two wires going to it. Check a service manual they are easy to replace.
Reverse switch on trans. is, most-likely, broken or stuck on somehow. You need to check it and/or replace it.
Try to replace the lights first. If they still don't work check the fuse. If that is good, it is most likely your back up light switch which is on the transmission(this is most likely your problem since both lights are out).
The problem is the reverse light switch. It is located on the top of the transmission that should sloved your problem.
Bad bulbs can be the cause of your reverse lights not working on your 1999 Toyota Tacoma. A problem with the reverse switch or bad wires can also be the cause of your reverse lights not working.
if you changed the bulbs and still nothing.. its the reverse switch that's on the tranny. about a 10$ fix and 5 min to replace. good luck!
replace the 15 amp fuse replace the 15 amp fuse
the reverse light switch is either out of adjustment. or broken. new one should be fairly cheap
Caravan lights can be bought on camping websites, eBay, and online caravan stores. There are many options to purchase these. You can use comparison sites to compare prices, reliability and shipping prices.
Which lights are you attempting to replace?
Aha, another one! Yes, our '99 caravan is acting the same way. I have checked the bulbs and fuses, both checked good. I even checked the wires with a volt meter. No power is getting to the bulb sockets.
If the bulbs are the cause, remove the tail light assemblies and replace the bulbs; if they still don't work, replace the neutral safety switch, located on the front of the transmission.
The bulbs are accessed from inside the trunk. You would remove the trim panel to access the bulb.
most switches would be underneath gearbox, yes it sounds like that, a simple job , manual would show you. Check your computer switch box and see if the reverse lights switch is damaged. If so, replace it. It costs 2 SAR
