Not a plug , though kinda looks like one , but a neutral safety switch at the transmission (follow the wire to side of trans case)

Have a 87-88 dodge Dakota and the reverse lights will not go off when the lights are on, how do I fix this?


Do the reverse lights operate normally with the headlights off? The reverse lights are on an entirely different circuit than than the park/headlights. In order for them to come on with the park/headlights, there will have to be a short to power on the circuit. Will the park lights come on if the vehicle is put in reverse with the headlight switch off? Look for shorted/corrodded wiring in the rear taillight circuit and connector plugs. Green corrossion in/around any plug or wiring is a sure sign of a problem

One backup light works and one doesn't on a 88 chevy 1500. New bulbs and bulb holder.


Connect a Test Light between the ground wire on the light socket (bulb holder) and somewhere on the body (a clean/bare metal surface) and then put the transmission in reverse.
If the Test Light lights up, you have a bad ground (broken wire, bad/corroded connection). If it doesn't then use a Multimeter to check for power on the Positive side of the Socket, No or Low voltage means a bad wire. Battery voltage is generally 12.45 (without the engine running) and 14.5 (with the engine running) So if you're getting less than that (by more than .3) you have a poor connection or damaged wire

88 GMC 1500 backup lights do not work after replacing bulbs


Check all the fuses to make sure they all are ok. If so then on the base of the steering column you find a white switch that slides back and forth across the top of the column. Block the wheels, turn the key to on, put truck in reverse, slide this switch a couple of clicks each way until the lights come on. If they dont the switch may be bad or possible open wire to tail lights. Good luck!

Ack up lights dont work when put in reverse


If all fuses are intact and someone did not fiddle with the wiring or plugged out the back up switch, then its most probably the back up switch. Its fitted on the gearbox.
