Check for burned fuse first, then try having someone stand behind car as you move shifter through all the gears slowly too see if back-up lights flick on & off at all during. Move it back & forth from reverse to neutral & drive a couple of times too, real slow & watch for back-ups to light momentarily.

  • Take it to a shop that has headlight aiming equipment. The adjuster compensates for level and uneven floors when setting up to aim your headlights. Doing it that way assures you won't be misaimed causing oncoming drivers to be blinded. Keeps the cops from ticketing you too.

My reverse lights dont come on while in reverse and i dont need to have my foot on the break to shift out of park.

Yes it could be a relay, but it could also be two isolated problems. The shift will have a switch inside to send a signal either through a relay or directly to the reverse lights. I would suspect the switch. The switch itself may be good but it is not being depressed for some reason. The brake also has a switch. It may be working for the break light but not for lock out of the starter.

I have a 97 GMC Sierra 4x4 1500 automatic transmission and it won't shift into reverse it does fine in all other gears. My dad said he looked at it and one of the bands is stretched out, but i asked the...

There is no band for reverse in this transmission and there is no shift solenoid function in reverse.There are a couple things that can cause a no reverse problem.#1 problem with the reverse input clutches such as burned or damaged clutches and/or leaking drum.#2The other most common problem is a stripped reaction shell although you usually loose 2nd and 4th gear when that happens.If you have good neutral,all 4 forward gears and the transmission is full of fluid then I would say that the bearing between the input drum and reverse input drum has failed and there are pieces of bearing stuck in the reverse drum and keeping the clutches from applying.No simple fix here and dont waste your money on fluid and filter or a shift solenoid.Time for an overhaul.Let me know if I can help.

My reverse lights dont work put new bulbs in but still dont work

you might have a reverse switch fault check on the box to see if it is connecting to the gear leaver when you put it in reverse..if not then that will have to be replaced, it might be the plunger in the switch broken or worn away..hope this helps

Dash lights and tail lights work when they want

the occasional not working leads me to believe it's loose wiring or a short in the wire somewhere

My manual reverse gear on my '96 VW Jetta spits out the reverse and makes a grinding sound?

You have bad sycronizers in the gearbox. They are made of softer metal so they will wear out. They are used to smoothly shifte from one gear to another. How does the clutch feel? Any play in the shifter? Could be the clutch going bad, or play in the shifter also.
