The neutral safety switch can be adjusted to make this work. (loosen it and turn , then lock it down. This changes neutral start position as well so make sure both work when you're finished! Switch is on right side of trans. Switch is about $220 so don't break it!

Where is the backup light switch on my 1996 jeep cherokee


If its an automatic transmission it's part Of the neutral safety switch on the drivers side of the transmission. The dark blue with white wire is the power in. The brown with light green wire should have power with the transmission in reverse.

The backup lights on my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't work. Have checked all the things I know how to except the NSS. Where is the NSS located and am I better off trying to clean/adjust it or replace it?


the backup light gets its power from the neutral safety switch on transmission.
\When you put vehicle in reverse it toggles the switch in the tranny to engage the backup lights.
if that plug has the wire broke off the backup lights will not work.

Jeep was doing ok ,as i came up our mountian i felt two or three small jerks,when i was close to the top it just would not go forward anymore,i tried every gear drive 1st,2nd and reverse,I also tried...


it sounds like your automatic transmission quit his job. How much miles are on the clock? If more than 150.000 and you pulled trailers, climb mountains etc. this will be the first choice. Let the engine idle, push the brakes and check if the car will go in any gear. If this will happen only in reverse gear, your auto trans need to be replaces. You can use a rebuilt auto trans.

The backup lights on our 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country have stopped working. We checked the fuses and the power distributions mini fuses under the hood and now the Check Engine light is on and still no backup...


Check your backup light circuit at the trans.If this is a manual trans it will be a seperate switch if automatic it should be in with the neutral saftey switch.Sometimes on a automatic the switch is adjustable and may just out of adjustment.Check engine light have it scanned and turn off light by clearing code at your local Autozone or pepboys

No Backup lights when in Reverse


The part you are referring to is the range selector switch, it is on the side of the trans where the gear selector arm comes out of the trans, it moves with the shaft the arm is attached to and tells the system what gear you are in as well as turning on the backup lights when reverse is selected. You don't say what engine but I show that if you have a V8 or V6 the switch is $225.00
