Does anyone know where the backup light switch is on a 1968 Mustang with a 289 and C4 transmission?

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.

What could be wrong if the battery light stays on after installing a new battery and alternator in a 1994 Nissan Sentra XE?

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.

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.
