I had the same problem. My backup lights wouldn't come on in when I put the auto. trans. shifter into the Reverse position. They WOULD come on briefly as I moved the shifter from Park position into Reverse, but would go off again when the shifter reached the Reverse detent. I got the solution from the Haynes service manual, in which the relevant switch is referred to as something like the neutral safety switch. Check on top of the steering column close to the firewall. Set the parking brake, then move the auto. trans. shifter into Neutral position. Get under the dash and rotate the neutral safety switch clockwise as far as it will go. Then move the shifter into the Park position, and your switch should be set. If the backup lights don't come on now when the shifter is put into Reverse position with the ignition switch 'on', there may be another problem.

1989 chevy blazer 1500 transmission modulator vale location


If its a THM400 the valve should be in the side just above the pan. It would have a vac hose going to it.
If its not a 400 it probably does not use a modulator valve but rather a solenoid inside the transmission.

What transmission come out in a 1983 chevy silverado


It should be the 700 r4 transmission with the 350 block,
unless someone changed it out, it could be a turbo 350, if the truck is a 3/4 ton.
if you have 3 gears and over drive it is a 700 r4
only 3 gears turbo 350

Need location of HIGH Gear Pressure Switch on gm transmission


Do you have a 1 piece case or does the bell housing unbolt? A 700R4 usually has 3 switches on the back of the valve body.the one closest to the 1-2 accumulator (pass. side rear corner) is the fourth switch. If you have a two piece case, you have a 4L60E,the pressure switch is still on the valve body but it is an assembly,not a single switch.

I just put a transmission from a 1994 chevy 1500 onto my 1993 chevy 1500. it fit perfectly but the wiring harness is different. is there an adapter for this application? if so, and i install it will i need...


what color is the inside of the trans connector on the trans itself? I believe the 93/94s were a tan yellowish color. 1995 and up are different and won't work - electronics are different

If they have exactly the same amount of solenoids, you could switch the harnesses.... but it sounds like you have a 95 or newer trans which would have one more solenoid

Reverse lights don't work


simple thing first... make sure the bulbs are not burnt out... check the fuse.... then there is a sensor/switch located either on the steering colunm or on the transmission. quick test... put it in reverse and jiggle the shifter... if they come on that takes care of the first two issues....
