The backup light switch is the most common cause of this problem, this assumes you have already checked all the related fuae and none are blown.

2001 toyota echo backup light always on after i replaced backup light switch?


Is it possible you did not get it adjusted correctly ?

Backup light not working


Replace the backup light on the right side. Its most likely burned out. A blown fuse would cause both lights to not work. You might have bad wiring to that side. If you have access to a volt meter, have an assistant put your car in reverse while you check the voltage at the backup light socket. Make sure to tell your assistant to keep their foot on the brake pedal. Voltage should about 12 volts

My drivers side backup light isn't working. I changed the bulb and it still doesn't work. Apparently there isn't a fuse for the backup light. Can anyone help?


If the other one is working then there is something wrong with the wireing between the two of them, or the connection in the light or the bulb contacts are dirty in the holder.

Backup lights stopped working, replaced one complete light assembly and the fuse.


I would say that the backup light switch on the transmission is faulty, or the wiring to and from the switch. Most times if the backup lights do not work this is the root cause.

Location of the Backup light switch.


I didn't find a location for the backup light switch,

But found the following on Autozone.com:

Backup Light Switch Operation:
00610_backup_light_switch.jpgAn open switch that prevents voltage from being applied to the backup lights until the vehicle is put in reverse. Putting the vehicle in reverse closes the contact and applies power to the rear back-up lights. Check under the dash or somewhere near the steering column if you have a column shifter. If the shifter closes or opens the backup light switch mechanically, one should be able to trace the cable and mechanisms that turn a cam that connects to the backup light switch, somehow. May have to disassemble the steering column area to see it.

The backup lights on my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't work. Have checked all the things I know how to except the NSS. Where is the NSS located and am I better off trying to clean/adjust it or replace it?


the backup light gets its power from the neutral safety switch on transmission.
\When you put vehicle in reverse it toggles the switch in the tranny to engage the backup lights.
if that plug has the wire broke off the backup lights will not work.

Parking and backup lights quit working.everything else works including instrument lights.checked fuses and parking light relay both are good. Can someone please come up with a suggestion.


Try checking out your light bulbs in parking and backup light locations. Sometimes when one bulb goes out or just comes loose, it stops the entire circuit from operating.
