Question about 1982 Chevrolet El Camino
Fuses fine.lights or bulbs fine
Well, the only thing left is the switch. It's probably either stuck in, or broken to where it's always showing as on.
Is it Auto or Manual? On some automatic transmissions, the Neutral Safety Switch doubles as the reverse switch, so that's the one you'd want to ask for. Manual trans would have the reverse switch.
Go to your favorite auto parts website and look up your vehicle. Then look up the switch. It'll give you pictures of the part, then that might help you identify the switch, and give you a price. Looks like around $10 or so around here.
There are few switches hooked to that year manual transmissions, possibly only one: the one you're looking for.
How to test:
With the car on jack stands, put key to ON position so the lights come on.
Under vehicle, look on the transmission for components with an electrical connector attached.
Disconnect the electrical connector and see if the lights go out. If there's more than one, try only one at a time. The one that turns out the lights is the one you want.
Hope that helps.
Good luck! :)
