The neutral safety switch on the 99 Dodge neon is located on left, front side of the transmission, as viewed from the drivers seat. It is under the battery box, requires about a 15/16's socket to remove. it is accessible from underneath, and it has three prongs all in a row. This switch is easy to test for continuity, and I am told it is possible for a bad neutral safety swith to cause a "no spark" situation. But I have not confirmed that, I just heard that. good luck.

The backup light switch is mounted on the transmission casing.
it is located under hood in relay and fuse holder. right by driver front fender
replae backup light switch on transmission
its the safety neutral switch
Try checking the neutral safety switch. This switch is the one in automatic transmissions that makes the backup lights "flip" on when going from park to drive as you go through the gears. When my neutral safety switch shorted my backup lights stayed on constantly.
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.
No. The lights are switched independently of the 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.
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 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).
check reverse light switch on 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.
