No reverse lights diesel manual 5 sp trans

Hi Francis:
I'm assuming you've checked the bulbs and confirmed the grounds and sockets.
I'd check the transmission to see if there is a wire coming from it.
that should be the reverse lights switch. Check with a continuity meter to make sure it is working. Reverse shift position - continuity. Any other position, switch should be open.
Replace if not working.
If it is working you'll need to explore more.
Please reply as a comment to this post if you need more info.

Why do I have reverse gear but no reverse lights? Light worked recently, and not bad bulbs or anything, what could it be? I have a 1996 gmc jimmy sls 2wd automatic. Thank you

Does you shift indicator point to "R" when in reverse. The reverse light are switched on by the selector shaft position sensor built into the Parp/Neutral Safety Switch. It may be bad or just out of adjustment.

The reverse gear is fine but when you let go of the gear stick the reverse lights go out and light pressure put back on gear stick bits lights back in

Ok! This is the reverse light switch located under the gear stick gaiter! Could just need adjusting.....double nut locking system or is faulty/broken! The switch has a plunger that is activated by the movement of the gear stick to reverse!

My car will not start unless I push the shifter allt he way up into PARK

sounds to me like you need to have shifter cable or park neutral position switch adjusted. The car is thinking that you are in "reverse" and it will not start. When you push the shifter forward it turns off the signal telling the car that it is in reverse and it will start, because you are putting pressure on it making it think that it is in "park"

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.

When i put my truck into reverse my lights dont work however if i pull my shifter back inbetween reverse and neutral if i get this one spot they come on

There is usually a switch mounted on the transmission. Perhaps it has gotten loose or something is worn or broken. Your gear selection goes park, reverse, neutral and drive. Since the switch is not coming on from park to reverse but it kinda does if you go past reverse (neutral) then it sounds like the switch has moved from its original place. That's why I think it is loose. Good Luck!

Reverse light

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
