Check fuse or bulbs.

Testimonial: "Both backup lights not working. Bulbs good, fuses good. How do I get at the switch that controls these lights? Can it be something else other than the switch? I went to the shop today and they told me it has something to do with my transmission. I'm scared because anything with "transmission" in it sounds expensive. LOL"

    Could be switch,maybe broken wire.

  • Jenna Lo May 08, 2013

    Yeah, that's what all the forums said. I'm trying to see how much the switch would cost me. You think it would be better if I just let the shop I went to change it for me?

You can try shifting into manual 1 to get moving then once you get going shift the lever up into Drive. This should work, then drive it to a shop to have your ****** looked at.

After switching the fuse and replacing the bulbs the reverse lights won't work.


if you changed the right fuse then you could have a bad neutral switch not working to turn on the reverse lights or power or ground is lost going to the bulbs either a bad wire or bad sockets this will have to be checked out with a test light.

All fuses are good - brake lights, rear running lights work fine. but the reverse lights won't come on when put into reverse. Any idea what might be going on? As far as I know the bulbs are still good...


You will need to either replace or adjust your backup switch, it is located on the transmission next to the shifter. Hope this helps, thank you for using FixYa!

My back reversing lights wont work but the bulbs and the fuse are all good?


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then it's definitely a reverse switch issue. If the reverse switch is faulty, the reverse light won't work even if the bulbs are fine. It is located underneath the transmission where it triggers when reverse is engaged. Have it replaced and you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I replaced a cracked rear tail light with an after market new light. Now the brake light won't work but reverse lights and directional signal do. The bulbs are fine as I've moved them around and...



  • If there are no brake lights period the check the stop switch (brake light switch)
  • This is attached to the upper part of the brake pedal itself. Should be a little wire off of it. When that goes bad the brake lights will not work at all.
  • Please note that the fuse for "brakes" is ABS only and has no bearing on the brake lights themselves working.
