Bottom front left side of transmission just above pan gasket. Just inside and ahead of the left wheel. A wired connector attaches to it. You don't need to jack the car up to get to it but it helps to get a bit more room. Disconnect connector. With appropriate box end wrench OR deep socket, remove switch. Replace switch. Haynes says 24 ft-lb torque. You should probably have a drip pan in case some fluid leaks out. With the front jacked up some, there was no leakage. The connector fit is tight. You can rotate it C and CCW a tiny bit safely.

SOURCE: The backup lights on my 1993 Dodge Caravan do not

If your shifting lever cable is a little stretched the lights will come on, but go out again when in reverse. Shift car while looking out the back window or have a friend help by looking from behind. If The lights come on but go back out once in reverse, the cable needs to be tighted. The adjustment is usually under the dash, or on top of the transmisson on front wheel drive models. If the lights do not come on at all, then it is electrical.

SOURCE: how do you adjust head lights on a1996 dodge

You should have two plastic nuts on each headlamp assembly, one will be for your high beams and one will be for your low beams.

The nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail (might see holes in your rail above the headlamp unit where the screws are hidden)

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

1999 dodge caravan where is the reverse light switch Lights on on in reverse but sometimes stay on when selector moves to drive.

There used to be a switch on automatics called the neutral lock out switch. This served the function of keeping you from trying to start the car while already in gear and also turned on the backup lights. It was connected mechanically to the gear selector. The contacts would wear with age, causing starter and back up light problems . Suppose they have something similar these days. drop by a dealer and ask the parts desk guy. He will know what it is and where it is.

'98 caravan signal, brake and hazard lights work.

Start by checking the fuses. The parking & headlamps work off the same switch. The back-up lamps are on a different switch,which is activated at the transmission.

New rear backup bulbs but they still don't 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
