Go to this site and pick owner guide in left task bar then pick your vehicle information and down load the owners guide and it will have the fuse panel layout on page 191-193

If the site doesn't work,sometimes it puts fixya's site in front of it just copy and paste it in your task bar.

No reverse light, all fuse good. reverse Switch?

It's not that simple anymore . The transmission range sensor switch is what they have now . This range sensor informes the PCM - engine computer what gear the vehicle is in. When you put the gear selector into reverse B+ voltage from the range sensor to the PCM tells the PCM reverse has been selected , the PCM then will energize the reverse lamp relay (located in the under hood fuse/relay box) there by turning on the reverse lamps . There are two fuse's in the under hood fuse/relay box . F27 10amp. & F35 10amp.

I can't find the fuse for the Reversing Lights (Backup Lights)
Hi try this link the 2003-2006 are almost the same and the above link should help you to find the fuse. After you replace the fuse if it still does not work call your local dealer to find out if it could be a reverse sensor or reverse switch. Good Luck and don't forget to let everyone on fix ya know if this worked.

Where is the backup light sensor for 2003 cadilac deville

Hello: If you mean what turns the back-up lights on, the lights are controlled by the park neutral switch which is mounted on top of the transmission on the drivers side of the car. If you haven't checked the bulbs you need to do that first. Remove the rear license plate, then remove the screws that hold the molding behind the license plate then you can access the bulbs for the back up lights. If bulbs are good check the Park/Reverse fuse in the rear fuse block, if fuse is good check the reverse relay in the rear fuse block. The rear fuse block is on Left side under the rear bottom seat cushion.

O/D off flashing, backup lights not work,

The vehicle speed sensor is going bad . That's what is causing erratic shifting an the O/D light flashing .
Lamps, Backup The back-up lamp system consists of:
  • the transmission range (TR) sensor.
  • the back-up lamp bulb(s) located in both rear lamp (13404) assemblies
  • circuit wiring and circuit protection
Circuit protection is provided to the transmission range (TR) sensor through fuse 30 (25A). This fuse is hot in RUN. With the transmission in REVERSE, the switch closes and power is provided to the back-up lamp bulbs through Circuit 140 (BK/PK). Ground is provided to the back up lamp bulbs through Circuit 57 (BK). The range sensor is located on the transmission at the manual lever.
