Where is the backup light switch on a 1998 Dodge Dakota. My backup lights come on between neutral and reverse?
The backup light switch is mounted on the transmission casing.
Answer It 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.
I have a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 with a manual transmission. The backup light does not come on when I engage the transmission into reverse. Does anyone know how to fix it?
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.
