Question about 1995 Chevrolet Cavalier
The lights on the back of the car wont turn on .there on the trunk one on each side .i tried replacing the bulbs but wont work.theres 2 other lights on the back of the car those work but i want to know how to fix the 2 that dont work
You didn't specify if it was a manual or an automatic.
Yes there is a switch at the gearshift lever its called the netural safety switch in which turns on the day time running lights (some newer cars) it won't let the car start in any gear unless it is in netrual or park, it also has a eletrical contact built into the switch in the reverse postion in which turns on the backup lights.
You will have to remove the floor consule to get access to it.
It is all in one switch you have to replace the complete switch which has slotted holes to adjust it so it will only start in netrual or park.
Very easy change (I think it only has 2 screws holding it.
At Autozone 3 speed automatic is $48.99, 4 speed automatic $118.99.
The back up light switch on the manual transmission is under the car mounted on the transmission itself (front wheel you might be able to get to it under the hood).
The price at autozone is $10.99.
I hope this answers your question?

the Steps on how to replace license plate light on your car.
Open the trunk and locate the trunk liner retainer clips.Use the
Phillips head screwdriver to loosen the center plastic screw of the
retainer clip about 1/4 turn, just enough to raise the head of the
screw from the base of the clip. Pull the screw up, and lift the
clip out of the liner. Use a flathead screwdriver to help pry it
out. Remove enough of the clips to allow access to the license plate
light sockets. Pull the liner back.
Remove the emergency trunk release handle by popping off the top
cover of the handle. Use the needle nose pliers to gently squeeze
the prongs on the shaft, while removing the handle.
Unplug the wire harness from the license plate light bulb socket the
release clip on the side of the outlet.Twist the license plate light
bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise, using the needle nose pliers
again. Do not apply too much pressure to the pliers; you may damage
Remove the bulb from the socket, and replace it with a new one.
Replace the socket into the socket assembly, and plug the wire
harness back in. Test the bulb by turning on the lights of the
Corolla, then turn them off again.
Replace the trunk emergency release handle, and replace the hood
liner and the retainer clips. Remove the old bulb and tools, and
close the trunk.
