2001 Grand Prix GTP 4 door. Back up Lights will not work. Trunk release works but no power at BU sockets and no flicker when moving shifter???

My car sat for 3 years and we have just gotten it back on the road. However, the back up lamps refuse to work! The fuse is good (the trunk release works) but there is no power to the reverse lamps at the socket. Moving the shifter through the gears doesn't produce a flash either. all other lights work as does neutral safety. any ideas? I do not see an interior fuse for the BU lights, just the one in the under hood panel.

SOURCE: 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis. Backup lights won't work

Does pushing the trunk release button make the back up lights illuminate? Has the car been serviced or wrecked before this problem? Have you been golfing and put clubs in the huge trunk. Either the ground wire for the trunk lid devices is bad or the trunk release wire (purple/orange) and the reverse lamps wire (purple/white) have been reversed.

Sounds as though the motor may have quit working, check your fuse or the relay in the underhood power center. The key still works correct? Do you hear any noise when you try the remote switches? If you do the rods may have come loose or the holders may have broken.

Back up lights and truck release not working, changed fuses


If you replaced the 10A B/U fuse in the underhood fuse block, power should be getting to the park/neutral position switch. In the R position, the back-up lamps should turn on. If not, the lamps could be burned out, the switch could be defective or the sockets could be corroded, or the black ground wire could be disconnected/broken

The path from the B/U fuse to the park/neutral position switch is the same. With the switch set to P, the rear compartment lid release relay closes and the rear compartment lid lock release actuator solenoid operates to pop the trun. There is a parallel path through the manual rear compartment lid release switch which also should pop the trunk. If the trunk can't be released either automatically or manually, the solenoid may be defective or the relay or switch could be defective or there may be no input from the body control manual or the remote control door lock receiver could be defective

My car( 2001 Grand Prix...) the shifter in it want pull into gear now has to push the release button on the side what has caused this and will it hurt to drive it like this.


Hi, there is no problem driving it like this, but you might want to make sure your brake lights are working. The problem has to do with the shift lock. There is a solenoid at the base of the shifter that unlocks it when you step on the brake. The failure to unlock the shifter may be caused by a burned fuse, a failed brake switch, or a failed shift lock solenoid. I always check the brake lights first, as this may indicate the problem is in the brake switch above the pedal.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP / Multi-function Switch


i have the sameproblem. Dealer part was quoted to me at $510.00. All after market parts stores were $350- 450. Try moving the emerg. flasher button while you step on the brakes and someone else watches the lights. I jammed paper beside the button and they work until I can fix it.I had to order the multi-function switch. and you have to pull the air bags to replace it.
