On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced

The lights in the switches are part of the switch and not replaceable separately, so in order to fix this you will need new switches. The switches are contained in what are called the right and left cruse control switch pods. They are available in the trim color of your car. the cost is about $100.00 for the two switches, the price varies by the color. Below is an illustration of the switches, they are marked 3 and 4 in the diagram.

Reverse lights/Rear internal brake light not working


there is a reverse switch on top of the trans where the shift cable is attached. is there power to and through that switch while in reverse? the cyclops light needs the power interruption traced back from the socket to the switch on the brake pedal to find out where you have lost power or possibly taped into brake power at another brake light bulb socket

Reverse light dont work


No they should only come on when you put in reverse or else everyone would think you were backing up! its your bulb if just one, the fuse if both or the reverse switch indicator... Good Luck

check circuit board at lights and grounds, it is best to use a Power Probe to test as you can apply power or ground at the lights to verify problem.

1988 pathfinder no dash lights no revers lights no tail lights no gaiges


If they all stopped working at the same time then it is probably a fuse or possibly 2. Check your fuse panels in the dash and under the hood. The dash lights and gauges should be a fuse labeled instrument cluster or guages, it is probably blown. The other fuse to look for will be the tail light fuse. This is where I would begin.

2005 chevy suburban- my back-up lights and interior dome lights do not work. All fuses appear intact? Suggestions?


you bcm (body control module is bad) to have the dealer replace it will run you about $400. a quick fix for the reverse light is to splice 2 wires into the wire for the center plug in your trailer wiring. now run a wire up to each reverse light, cut the green wire to each reverse light and **** conect them up. this is a seperate revers feed than the one from the bcm. the dome lights remove the light cover on the second set of interior lights (the one between the drivers seats). the two side bulbs are map lights the center bulb is for the dome lights. run a jumper wire from the right or leftside socket to the center socket. you dome lights will now turn on with just the use of that switch i replaced the back bulbs with led's soo there is no extra amp's being drawn. you could bypass the bcm but i could not find any wiring diagrams for it and i dont know if it can take the added amp's
