The problem is the reverse light switch. It is located on the top of the transmission that should sloved your problem.
Try bypassing the reverse light switch that plugs into the transmission. If your reverse lights come on, voila! Problem solved. Buy a new switch.
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.
On my 98 A4 1.8T I had the same problem. The problem was the entire headlight switch on the stearing column went bad. I dont know if the headlight switch has anything to do with the reverse lights but from my own experience the reverse light problem is caused by thhe reverse light switch which is in the gearbox. I got a price of
The reverse lights automatically come on as you put the car into reverse , if they are not coming on your most likely problem is the fuse or bulbs
No problem, bring it in first thing in the morning and i will get right on it......
Where is the fuse located for the reverse lights
Check your fuses
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.
The most common problem is switch on side of transmission.(If bulbs and fuse are good) Another common problem with reverse lights is a faulty ground. Check for the black ground wire off the lights in the back. If the connection to the ground (body or frame) is rusted or broken repair it.
did you check the reverse switch on the trans ?
The bulb is probably dead or you have a blown fuse or other electrical problem.
Try to replace the lights first. If they still don't work check the fuse. If that is good, it is most likely your back up light switch which is on the transmission(this is most likely your problem since both lights are out).
the reverse light switch is either out of adjustment. or broken. new one should be fairly cheap
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.
Put your E brake on before you start start it this will slove your problem the lights will come on when you take the break off before driving
switch on the transmission which sends a signal to the reverse lights when shift is in reverse......... is shot. You need a mechanic.
Try replacing the back-up light switch. It is located on the left side of the transmission. It is a common problem.
Your reverse light, neutral safety switch has a problem, remove it ( right side trans ) and take it apart ( 2-300 bucks new ) clean it and adjust it.
The headlights are on a separate circuit. Check the fuses and if that's not the problem check the headlight switch. You may need to get into the vehicle and trace back the wire that provides power to the faulty circuit. Remember to not replace parts until you've found a real problem and you've been able to verify the problem through testing the part.
"Back up lights" are the same as reverse lights. Lights that "turn on" when vehicle is put into reverse gear to illuminate the rear of the car so you can see when backing up.
Yes it has two reverse lights
Hey I found it, Hooray, If anyone else wants to know where it is it's on top of the gearbox.
