Question about 1984 Dodge D150

Dodge D200 Reverse lights don't work

I've checked the bulbs and the wiring. All seems to be intact. I was told about a switch either on the steering column or on the transmission, but can't find anything like that. There are also three wires coming off the transmission, but they look like they were just siliconed on, rather sloppily by the looks of it. I know they worked before the transmission pan was replaced, but I don't know what could have changed since then.

    what do I do about it? I mean, how should it be wired? I have looked all over to try to figure it out myself but I cannot find anything. I did see on inspection that a wire is unhooked, but I was afraid to mess with it any more than that for fear of breaking something important. I am good at that. Thanks.

    Hello

    I would stop at the auto parts store and pick up the new switch

    get a test light on your 3 wires you have a power supply a ground and a output to the tail

    your test light will help you see what is hot and what is the ground lights there is 2 prongs out of the switch your power in and the lights out, the ground connects to the outside of the switch housing on the frame of the switch.the switch is activated when you move the shifter and the cam in the valve body moves pushing the ball in activating there switch.

    Let me know how it goes!

1996 Camry reverse lights don't work


Check if you are getting power to the reverse light switch. Turn ignition on, disconect terminals to the switch and check for power on the positive terminal using a light bulb or a test meter whatever. If power is there jumpthe 2 terminals and check if light backup light works. If it does replace switch. If ther is no power at switch check wiring from fuse box. If light does not work when switch is jumped check wiring to back.

I have a 2006 dodge magnum my interior lights don't come on when my doors are open or when I turn the interior light switch on is this a fuse if so do any know which one because I can't find it in...


Check the bulb, if it's intact then must be a fuse or broken wire. Use a multimeter & check continuity across all fuses if intact then trace wire back from light to switches etc

Reversing lights not working


It may be a bad back-up light switch on the transmission. Look for a two-wire connector on the transmission or transaxle, although it may be included in a wiring harness for the transaxle. If you find the two wires for the reverse light switch, you can jumper the two wires together, and with key on, the reverse lights should be on, verifying a bad reverse light switch. Screw it out and replace. But if still no lights, there may be a wiring break or a wiring problem going to the lights.
Good luck.

How do i change my signal switch in my 1993 mazda 929


Hi Shannon, befor you dive in and replace the indicator switch I would suggest you check the flasher unit. To replace the indicator switch you will need to remove the steering wheel (this usually means using a puller) Don't forget to punch match marks on the steering wheel and the column which must be aligned when assembling. Remove the steering wheel center cover. then the covers on the steering column Removed the screws (usually four) holding the stalk switch. don't forget to disconnect the battery and the wiring connection to the stalk switch. After replacing the assembly is opposite.to dismantling. Regards John

My 1993 Trooper's reverse lights don't work. I've checked all the fuses and changed the bulbs out but this was fruitless. Please help.


I had the same Problem with my 1994 Trooper. I was smoking (painting with translucent black paint) my taillights, and when i put the back in, the reverse lights didnt work. In a seemingly unrelated problem, my gearshift indicator strip on the dash would only stay in park. The solution is that there is a sensor that measures gear shift position on the transmission, that relays the power to the reverse lights when reverse is selected. This sensor turned out to be corroded through and the wires surrounding it had corroded from the inside out. I recently got that replaced, and the problem was solved.

Why wont my reverse lights stay on if they work?


Hello,

if your reverse light don't stay on, first check the bulb.

If the bulb is okay, check the reverse light wire and make sure its intact.

Lastly, check your fuse box. You should find your fuse box under your steering and or inside the bonnet. Check if the fuse has blown.

Good luck.

Reverse lights do not work despite changing bulbs and checking fuse


Make sure that A) the bulb socket contacts are not flash rusted over, B) see if all the wiring is intact/ground is good, it may be the switch is gone.

98 Dodge Durango parking lights don't work!


sounds like you could have a loose connection somewhere in the wiring at the parking lights.. check the blub housing to make sure all the tabs to hold the bulb are there,,, wiggle the wires a little and see if they are broken loose... also check the grounds... see if any are loose or broken..
