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.
the reverse safety back up switch is located on top of the transmission next to the clutch resivior
Probably the reverse switch is bad or out of alignment. You'll need a manual to find the reverse switch. It'll be somewhere on the shifter, on the transmission, or possibly somewhere in between.
Try bypassing the reverse light switch that plugs into the transmission. If your reverse lights come on, voila! Problem solved. Buy a new switch.
There is a switch called the reverse backup light switch attached to the shifter. When you move the shifter into reverse, the switch is closed and current goes back to the reverse lights. The switch is located on both auto and manual trans. After making sure your bulbs are good, that is where I would look. And make sure your fuses are not blown as well in your fuse block. There usually is not just a circuit dedicated to reverse lights only but there is always something a manufacturer will do some years just to be different.
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.
When the shifter goes to the reverse position a switch is depressed to turn on the back up lights. The switch is most likely on the top of the transmission.
There is a backup switch in the gearbox. When you shift into reverse, the gear box switch contacts the switch and lights the white reverse lights. If you find that the reverse lights don't work it could be that the switch is not being triggered by the mechanism inside the gearbox. This is providing that everything else is working; wiring,bulbs,etc.
Unscrew that puppy!According to my Haynes manual, the reverse light switch is located on the top of the left end (driver's side) of the transaxel. Unplug the electrical connector from the switch and remove the switch with a socket DO NOT use an open end wrench.Installation is the reverse. Tighten the switch to 24 Ft. Lbs.
did you check the reverse switch on the trans ?
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.
Is it automatic or manual???
Either the reverse switch is defective or out of adjustment.
The 2002 Cavalier has a reverse light switch. The switch can be bad, or have a loose connection causing the lights not to work.
The reverse lights switch on a Ford Fiesta is found on the transmission. The switch can be seen from underneath the car.
most switches would be underneath gearbox, yes it sounds like that, a simple job , manual would show you. Check your computer switch box and see if the reverse lights switch is damaged. If so, replace it. It costs 2 SAR
The problem is the reverse light switch. It is located on the top of the transmission that should sloved your problem.
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.
Hey I found it, Hooray, If anyone else wants to know where it is it's on top of the gearbox.
Where is the switch located for the back up lights on a 2000 cadillac daville
Replace the bulb first, if this does not work try the reverse switch.
Either the switch that turns the backup lights on is out of adjustment, or has failed in the on position.
the reverse light switch is either out of adjustment. or broken. new one should be fairly cheap
switch on the transmission which sends a signal to the reverse lights when shift is in reverse......... is shot. You need a mechanic.
Look at your drivers manual.. where ever the park switch is, look for a "R".
