It's a matter of replacing the reverse position swith in the transmission. This switch tells the computer wheter it's in neutral, or reverse and when in reverse it triggers the reverse lights.
AnswerIt should be on the left side of trans where the shift levers are. It is called the neutral safety switch and the backup light switch is built into the same switch. So, this switch allows your car to only be started in park or neutral and when in reverse, it will turn on the backup lights. There are four wires on the neutral safety switch with a square connector on the end.
It should be on the transmission. There should be two, a reverse light switch and a neutral switch. Unplug one and put it in reverse. if the backup lights come on, then that's the one you want. Unscrew it and screw in a new one. pretty easy.
It is inside the transmission, on the top of the valve body. It is part of the range sensor/solenoid assembly.
The backup light switch on a 2003 E350 van is located on the column under the dash, just inside the firewall. The neutral safety and reverse lights are both controlled by one switch.
In the 1988 Nissan the alternator, instrument panel, and backup lights shared a fuse. Before changing a fuse see if the backup lights work (have someone watch when you are in reverse). If the neutral start/backup light switch is broken internally, it can be blowing the fuse when you put the car in reverse.
If it's a 4-spd the switch will be mounted on the side of the transmission. If the car is an automatic...There is a combination "neutral safety-backup light" switch located under the center console on the passenger side.
You have a short circuit between the backup light switch and ground. VWs are infamous for this because the power for the backup lights comes off the side of the ignition coil. When you stick the car in reverse, it grounds the coil and the engine dies.
it is located under hood in relay and fuse holder. right by driver front fender
put it in reverse
Its for a reverse backup camera.
its the safety neutral switch
