It is part of the Neutral Safety Switch attached to the side of the transmission.

The switch for the backup light switch for an automatic transmission is located on the transmission where the shifting cable enters the transmission (The side of the transmission closest to the radiator),how about for the manual trans mission models?

You didn't state weather it was an Automatic or Manual transmission. Well any way they are both on the transmission. Manual transmission has a separate switch for the backup lights the automatic is built into the neutral safety switch on the transmission. Automatic switch is about $50.00. Manual switch is about $10.00. Hope you have a manual it is a lot cheaper.

It is combined with the neutral safety switch and mounts to the transmission where the shifter linkage is attached.

The neutral start switch mounted on your automatic transmission also serves as the back up lamp switch.

Standard or automatic transmission, they both are mounted to the transmission.

If you have an automatic transmission it is on top of he steering column just before it goes through the firewall. If you have a manual transmission it is on the transmission.

On the driver's side of the transmission (range select cable is attached to it).

Try either at the lower end of steering column or attached to the linkage on the transmission

The neutral safety switch and backup light switch are one in the same. You have to replace it. It is located on the transmission where the shifter connects to it.

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.

if it is a jeep Cherokee it needs a neutral safety switch mounted on the passenger side of the transmission. if it is a jeep grand Cherokee it needs the backup switch located on the drvers side of the transmission

Backup light switches are different between automatic and manual transmission bmws. If you have the automatic the switch is under the shifter. Disconnect the battery and remove the shifter boot. Unplug the switch wires and replace the switch and reconnect the wires and battery. If you have a manual transmission the switch is on the passenger side of the transmission above the Allen type filler plug. Disconnect the battery, unplug the wires and unscrew the switch with a 19mm wrench. Screw in the new one an torque it down then reconnect the wires and the battery.

the neutral / backup light switch is on the side of the transmission. You can cut and splice them.

User Avatar

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).

The neutral start ( or neutral safety ) switch on an automatic transmission allows the vehicle to start only in park or neutral , and also acts as the backup light switch

User Avatar

There is no relay for the backup lights. The circuit is powered by the keyswitch, runs thru a 10 amp fuse on the interior fuse block, then goes through a switch mounted on the transmission, and on to the lights. The switch is on the front of the manual transmission, and on the lower front of the automatic.

bad fuse , bad electrical connection to or bad switch ( back up light switch on manual transmission / neutral safety switch on automatic transmission also acts as backup light switch )

There is a backup light switch on the transmission.

User Avatar

The backup switch is on top of the transmission directly below the battery. @ wires to it

User Avatar

yes there is a switch its screwed into the side of the manual transmission and its part of the column if you've got an automatic

The backup light switch is located on the left side of the transmission. Disconnect the switch connectors, then unscrew the switch.
