Question about 1989 Ford Probe

Reverse lights will not work

1989 Ford Probe GT Turbo
The reverse lights will not work, I replaced bulbs,checked fuse,checked wire harness and everything looked good. I do not know where the reverse switch is located on the manual transmission. I used the wiring diagram to get wire colors but I found 2 switches on the transmission and they do not match up.

Can you HELP

WHY PASSENGER SIDE HEADLIGHT BULB ON 2007 YUKON DENALI WILL NOT WORK


Remove plug from light bulb, using 12 volt test light hook up ground to negative side of battery,then touch probe on positive terminal to make sure test light is functional.next- turn lights on and then probe the plug at each terminal- there should be one wire that has power and the test light should light up. If the test light lights up then you need to test the circuit ground for the wiring harness. So remove the test light clamp and put it on the positive post of the battery. Now retest the test light by touching the probe on the negative post on the battery and the test light should light up. Next with the headlights off-probe the other terminals and if there is a good ground in the harness the light will light up- if not then there is an open condition in the headlight harness- a broken wire or a bad system ground.If both tests are performed and either condition does not happen then a wiring schematic will be needed to perform the repair. This is after all fuses are presumed good.

Reversing lights not working


It may be a bad back-up light switch on the transmission. Look for a two-wire connector on the transmission or transaxle, although it may be included in a wiring harness for the transaxle. If you find the two wires for the reverse light switch, you can jumper the two wires together, and with key on, the reverse lights should be on, verifying a bad reverse light switch. Screw it out and replace. But if still no lights, there may be a wiring break or a wiring problem going to the lights.
Good luck.

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.

You need to replace headlight switch - if fuses, bulbs, wiring looks good. Avoid the toggle switch idea, you'll be opening a whole new can of worms.

Im not getting any power to the brake light switch 1999 GT mustan


Check fuse #41, if its good then the brake switch may need replacing. You can test the power to the switch by the use of a voltage meter touching the LG/RD (light green/red) wire with the red side of the meter and the other probe to ground. If more than 10 volts its good. You can check the BPP (brake pedal position switch) by installing a fused jumper wire from LG/RD to the RD/LG wires. Connect a 10A fused jumper wire between C242, Circuit 10 (LG/RD), harness side and C242, Circuit 810 (RD/LG), harness side. And check the brake lights, if they go on then the switch is defective. Hope this helps you.

I have a 89 jeep wrangler and the rear passenger side turn light, break light, or tail light will not work. It was working and still is on the front. I have checked bulb and fuse and I cant find. Its like...


Like any bulb, it needspower and ground. Probe the contact in the bulb socket with a test light and check for power. If you have power, use the same ground you did for the test light and connect a short piece of wire there and probe the socket with the bulb installed (insert down into the socket between the bulb and socket) If the light comes on re-ground the socket.
If you get nothing for power check the harness closer to the switch...if nothing there you may need to check the signal switch to make sure an internal contact hasn't failed. I'm betting it's a bad ground though.

My cooling fans and blower have stopped working on '89 Ford probe turbo; all fuses are Ok.


Do you have the twin cooling fan set up?one is for the engine and the other is for the AC.these can be replace through the aftermarket parts stores. The blower for the heat/ac can be replaced. You can also test these units if your unplug them from the harness,and use jumper wires to supply power and ground.

1989 to 1990 Powered door conversion


about the only advice i can give is that i did the same thing with a 94 probe base and a 94 gt. i had to take the whole wiring harness out of the gt and put it in the base. It starts from the inside fuse block, goes to both doors, under the front seats, all the way to the fuel pump, abs, tail lights, and pretty much everything from the dash to the rear of the car. If you can get a whole harness, it should work.
