Why would a 2001 Hyundai Sonata reverse lights stay on and only turn off when shifting into reverse?

Sounds like the reverse switch is either damaged, or wired backwards... Did you have your clutch done recently?

The problem is the reverse light switch. It is located on the top of the transmission that should sloved your problem.

I had the same problem on my '99 Hyundai Sonata GLS. It was the alternator. It costs about $170 and it's about $150 to take it to Car-X and have them install it.

reverse lights on a Hyundai get there supply from a switch screwwed into the top of the transmission just left of the air filter box if your looking down at it

Yes,most cars have a fuse block under the drivers steering colum or right above the hood release latch

The reverse light sensor switch on the gearbox needs replacing. The switch is normally located on top of the gearbox & around the middle of underneath the air intake box.

One fuse controls the function of the hazard, reverse, and turn signals of the car. When there fuse blows all the components stop working.

pretty vague, could be worn linkage in your gear box that pushes the switch.

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.

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.

You use the plural of lights. If more than one is out it is probably not the bulb(s). Check the fuse first. Also check to see if the light is out on the selector quadrant on the console and the drivers front power window switch. If these lights are out as well, a fuse is the likely culprit, or a defective light switch.

switch on the transmission which sends a signal to the reverse lights when shift is in reverse......... is shot. You need a mechanic.

Yes it has two reverse lights

"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.

Should be parking/tailight fuse
