Question about Cars & Trucks
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.
As you can see in diagram there is a fuse. Not only check the fuse, use a test light and check voltage on fuse circuit. As you can see, the neutral switch is involved. At the actual lamps in the diagram, the top is voltage, the bottom wire is ground. Use a test light and check them both. You could even use a jumper wire and bypass the neutral switch, on the proper wire colors. If the backup lamps work with the jumper, the problem is the neutral switch. Just my opinion.

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.
