Simple thing first... make sure the bulbs are not burnt out... check the fuse.... then there is a sensor/switch located either on the steering colunm or on the transmission. quick test... put it in reverse and jiggle the shifter... if they come on that takes care of the first two issues....

I have a 2000 chevy silverado with a maual trans. The reverse lights won't come on. All other lights work, I've switched the bulbs out and checked the fuses and they are all fine.


I would take the bulbs out and put the trans in reverse, the check for voltage with a test light or multimeter. If no voltage is present then it's more likely a problem with the reverse switch which is located on the trans.

Backup lights do not work...1987 325ic...new bulbs installed, all other lights work perfectly...in reverse, with lights on, backup lights do not come on. Where is the backup light switch? There is a set...


it depends if it is auto or manual. There is a nuetral saftey switch on the auto-located on the manual valve arm(the piece that the linkage from the shifter connects to at the trans.) On the manual trans. there will be a 2 pole switch on the top shift plate that is for reverse only. The starting(clutch engagement switch)is located at the clutch pedal-2 seperate switches. First check for power at the back up light bulb connecter with reverse engaged(may have power at all times when key is on). Then check for ground when reverse is engaged-from bulb connecter to ground) with reverse engaged. The switch will just provide the ground when reverse is engaged. The power comes from an alternate source. Most likley a switch issue but at least this way you can be sure.

I have a 93 Chevy Suburban 1500 and the Transmission won't shift into any gear. I have an 1983 Chevy Suburban Transmission that is still good. Can I use the 83 Transmission in my 93 Suburban?


Not without a little adapting. The 1993 has a 4l60e which is electronically controlled and has shift solenoids. If the 83 is an overdrive it is a 700r4 which is the same trans but not electronic. If you put it in the speedo wont work and you will need to install a T.V. cable so the transmission will shift. The 93 won't go forward or backwards?

what color is the inside of the trans connector on the trans itself? I believe the 93/94s were a tan yellowish color. 1995 and up are different and won't work - electronics are different

If they have exactly the same amount of solenoids, you could switch the harnesses.... but it sounds like you have a 95 or newer trans which would have one more solenoid

Need to locate backup light switch on 1988 chevy 1500


I had the same problem. My backup lights wouldn't come on in when I put the auto. trans. shifter into the Reverse position. They WOULD come on briefly as I moved the shifter from Park position into Reverse, but would go off again when the shifter reached the Reverse detent. I got the solution from the Haynes service manual, in which the relevant switch is referred to as something like the neutral safety switch. Check on top of the steering column close to the firewall. Set the parking brake, then move the auto. trans. shifter into Neutral position. Get under the dash and rotate the neutral safety switch clockwise as far as it will go. Then move the shifter into the Park position, and your switch should be set. If the backup lights don't come on now when the shifter is put into Reverse position with the ignition switch 'on', there may be another problem.
