There is a design flaw in Jeep Cherokee tail/brake/turn signal lights as far as I can tell. They tend to be on the left side, too, oddly enough. I've seen a ton of message boards to support this when my left lights went out. I even have a habit now of looking at all the tail lights as I pass them now. I'd say a good 10-15% don't have left tail lights! bad wiring or something most people said on the message boards.

The problem is the reverse light switch. It is located on the top of the transmission that should sloved your problem.

Try bypassing the reverse light switch that plugs into the transmission. If your reverse lights come on, voila! Problem solved. Buy a new switch.

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.

Replace the bulb first, if this does not work try the reverse switch.

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).

there is no fuse for the reverse lights check the netural safety switch it may be out of adjustment or shorted.

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

The headlights are on a separate circuit. Check the fuses and if that's not the problem check the headlight switch. You may need to get into the vehicle and trace back the wire that provides power to the faulty circuit. Remember to not replace parts until you've found a real problem and you've been able to verify the problem through testing the part.

The reverse lights automatically come on as you put the car into reverse , if they are not coming on your most likely problem is the fuse or bulbs

Where is the fuse located for the reverse lights

When your tail lights are out you can simply replace them. If they continue to blow, you may have an electrical problem.

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.

Simple-wring problem, or you just need to replace the bulbs.

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.

THE LIGHTS ON THE RADIO ON THE LEFT SIDE ARE NOT LUMINATED. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO FIX THIS PROBLEM?

User Avatar

The most common problem is switch on side of transmission.(If bulbs and fuse are good) Another common problem with reverse lights is a faulty ground. Check for the black ground wire off the lights in the back. If the connection to the ground (body or frame) is rusted or broken repair it.

The bulb is probably dead or you have a blown fuse or other electrical problem.

User Avatar

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!
