2004 Saturn Ion - No Reverse lights

I have a 2004 ion and the reverse lights have stopped working. I have checked the bulb and the fuses and all seem fine. Any suggestions on what I should check next?

The problem is most likely on the transmission range selector switch, this is on th top of the transmission and has a multi-wire connector going to it, a shaft goes through it and the trans shift cable is connected there.

Why don't my 1998 s10 backup lights work when car is in reverse, stop and tail lights work fine all bulbs and fuses seem to be good ?


if the backup bulbs are good then check the neutral switch as this is where the reverse switch is, its part of the neutral switch. it may have stopped working and need replacing. you will be replacing the neutral switch. if you have power out of the switch then check for power and ground at the light socket as there could be a bad wire or connection.

Hello! If the transmission is a standard there is a "back up switch"with the wire colors Pink and Light Green which closes in reverse and applies battery (12 volts) to the lights...If, however, the car has an automatic transmission there is a switch (park neutral) same wire colors that when placed in reverse applies battery to the lights...Either one of the switches is defective...see photos below...Guru...saailer

Reverse light does not work, checked bulbs and fuse and they look good, any suggestions?? 2001 ford focus sedan.. thanks


If the bulb and the fuse are good, (the fuse will affect other circuits as well, not only the reverse lights), your next stop is the reverse light switch. It is located on the gearbox and is a switch with two wires coming from it. Remove the wires and touch them together and see if the reverse light comes on with the ignition on. If they do, you need to replace the switch.

Reverse light dont work


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
