1995 Pontiac Sunfire Backup Lights where is the switch to activat

My 1995 Pontiac Sunfire had sat for 5 years before my oldest son was of driving age, and I realized the Back Up lights would not come on, changed the bulbs do to the fact that other break lights etc. were out as well. Now that new bulbs are in the Back Up lights still do not come on. Wireing looks intact, however where is the switch to activate these lights located?

    Is this the Brake Light Switch or Back Up light Switch?

The switch is under the dash by the brake peddle arm. when you let off the brake it pushes switch in to turn lights off. may just be stuck, other wise it probably needs to be replaced.

Backup lights rarely work

Ifyour lights work some of the time it is probably not the fuse. It is either a ground or the reverse light switch that should ingage when the car is in reverse. Electrical problems are hard enough to evaluate in person and almost impossible when your not there. That being said, if you know any one wih a little electrical expirience in cars they would be a lot more help than anyon on line.
Good luck

I had the same thing happen about two years age. I had the drivers side window motor replaced and the brain surgen didn't notice the lock/unlock switch didn't work after he put the door insides back togeather. Bypassing, then replacing the switch solved the problem. Look for a short somewhere.

It sounds like there is a short in the switch that turns the interior lights on beside the headlight switch. You might be able to get a switch after market from your local auto parts store. Possibly with it being an 01, it would be a dealer item. Try calling parts store/dealer to see if you can locate one. Hope this is helpful. Please rate. Thanks
