    Thank you so much... this was the problem. I couldn't fix it myself but I was well aware when getting a quote from the mechanic.

The rev lights are turned on by the range switch on the top of the trans, if the bulbs and fuse are ok this is most likely the part that needs to be replaced

My Kubota svl90 back up alarm quit working. I'm truly not complaining, but was wondering if there is a switch I somehow turned off. I wouldn't mind having it on for my larger commercial jobs.


There should be no switch to turn off. The back up alarm is hooked directly to the reverse lights ( On most units if equipped ) or the reverse switch. If the unit is equipped with reverse lights,do they work? If not check fuses. If not equipped with reverse lights suspect the back up alarm to be at fault. You can test it with a test light to see if power is being applied to it when in reverse

I just failed my N.J. state inspection for the following reason. Can you help? The white back-up lights stay on at all times. I checked the b/u light fuse and found it to be good. Any ideas what I can...


The transmission switch that powers the reverse light switches is stuck in the ON position, this is quite a common fault.
The switch is mounted on the transmission casing near where the selector rods enter the casing on a manual shift and in the selector housing on automatic cars.

-(The back up light is ONLY from the transmission safety switch)

No reverse lights


every vehicle is from factory either with one or two reversing lights. Check the tail of your car for a white cluster light unit and when car is not running just turn the ignition on position and put the reverse and go back of the vehicle and see. If you have a white reversing light unit but not working the you have to go on the gear box and check for the reverse switch.Possible not working. Just remove it and on the end which goes in the gear box has a roller ball, just put in a small can some clean petrol and put it in and with your hand push the roller ball in and out just to clean from some dirt might got in and stopped it working.

Reverse lights turn on when backing up


I would check the fuse and the relay. If those are good,I would then either check the gear selector or the transmission for the reverse switch. This switch when activated sends a signal to your reverse lights to turn on.

My back reversing lights wont work but the bulbs and the fuse are all good?


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then it's definitely a reverse switch issue. If the reverse switch is faulty, the reverse light won't work even if the bulbs are fine. It is located underneath the transmission where it triggers when reverse is engaged. Have it replaced and you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

When i make the reverse the ligrts doesn't turn on


Thre are two possible things wrong, one is bulbs, always check these first, and second the reverse switch on the gear box, either the switch is duff or the connections to it are,
Locate the switch and check for 12v, if that is OK then connect the two connectors on the switch, (I use a 7a blade type fuse) and see if the lights (the one you have checked the bulb on) is working, if it dos the problem is in the switch and you will need to replace it.

2005 Pathfinder no reverse lights


On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced
