Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
I was told that my back up lights were not working so I replaced the bulbs. They are still not working. Is there a fuse that is just connected to these lights or is ther more that I should do? I am not great with vehicles. I know enough to get by.
Hey davis2270, what do u have for a transmission? It sounds like u need a new back up light switch, which screws into the tranny on -96 and older ford trucks, I haven't worked on a 01 sport trac, but it is most likely similar. When u put trans in reverse, a circuit is completed which sends power to the back up lights. Check under the vehicle 1st, u might get lucky and find the plug in wire off, or corroded connection, clean it up, and it may solve the problem. If u must replace, shop around, I found prices from approx. $20 to a bit over $100, quite a range. Let me know how u make out.
