Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

When I shift to Reverse my reverse lights wont work.

I noticed that when I shift into reverse my back up lights wont come on. My brakes lights and turn signal lights all work. Except my reverse lights. I checked the fuses in the cab and all were good and I looked in the fuse box in the engine compartment but did not know what I was looking for. I need some help here.

Buy a auto repair manual for your respective truck, or go to the Nissan dealer and ask a tech to show you where the actuator switch is located, and replace that switch. That is the only thing left to replace. That should fix it. Also you could use an Ohm meter to check the switch to see if it is bad. Also check for a broken wire when you remove the actuator switch.
Good Luck!

Reverse lights/Rear internal brake light not working


there is a reverse switch on top of the trans where the shift cable is attached. is there power to and through that switch while in reverse? the cyclops light needs the power interruption traced back from the socket to the switch on the brake pedal to find out where you have lost power or possibly taped into brake power at another brake light bulb socket

My 86 olds cutlas wont go in reverse but will shift in all other gears why


Common problem back in the day was linning falling off low/reverse clutches. You can confirm this by driving in manual low a ways and feeling what is called engine braking ( where the engine holds back on a coast). If you have engine braking then you have some other problem I have never seen. I cut my teeth fixing these transmissions and when they would not back up it was always a reverse clutch problem exept the ones that would not shift and had no reverse and it was a stripped sun gear shell.Good luck!

When I try to shift from park to drive it gets tight at reverse as if doesn't want go but once out of reverse it shift normally until shifting back to park when I have to go threw reverse then it tightens...


Is it only when you go from park to reverse? Or is it just as bad going from neutral to reverse? I've noticed on mine that it's often tight if I park on even a slight slope. If it only happens when going from park to reverse, try this. Hold your foot on the brake, and put the car in drive. Keeping constant pressure on the brake, go back to park, then back into drive. Did you feel the stiffness when you had your foot on the brake?

My chevy cavalier back lights wont come on i put new sockets and bulbs...what seems to be the problem and how do i fix the problem myself


Either the back-up switch is bad or needs adjusting. It's pretty much when you put your car in reverse, it makes a switch which makes your back-up lights come on. Not sure about yours, but some are located under the gear shift console when the gear shift is moved it will then make the switch, and some are on the transmission. I would try adjusting the switch first, which the car will have to be in reverse to get the lights to come on. It can be a little dangerous, but make sure the car it secured and someone is helping you. Gear shift in reverse, with someone holding the brakes while the switch is adjusted. It hard to explain this process, but wish you luck in fixing it.

My gear shift is stuck and will not move from park to reverse. I had backed out the car and turned it off. when I went to move the car, my gear shift will not move out of the park position.


do the brake lights work? the system has a lock out that keeps you from moving out of park unless the brake circuit is activated, hence no brake lights no park lock out release, if the brk lights do work u most have a stuck or defective park lock out solenoid.

2005 Pathfinder no reverse lights


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
