SOURCE: 1780 code

P1780 Park/Neutral Position Switch Malfunction (Only For A/T)
This code is related to a malfunction with the park neutral position switch, it's located on the transmission.
It maybe easier to get a Chilton manual from the autoparts store to locate the sensor/switch. The book runs about $20.
Replacing the switch/sensor may resolve the reverse light problem also.

SOURCE: reverse lights not working

Not 100% sure on that particular vehicle but many have safety neutral & back-up switch as one on transmission. Maybe dealer or part store can look up part & tell you if one switch in your case does both.

SOURCE: Reverse light

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

SOURCE: reverse lights not working, bulbs good

If the sockets are properly grounded, the next place you need to check is the neutral safety switch, located on the right side of the transmission.
With the connector clip up and the harness plug facing you, jump between the lower right and upper left contacts. If the reverse lights come on then remove the switch (directions in haynes and chilton).
The switch new is expensive so a scrapyard item is a good idea, or, if you are very careful (loose small contacts inside) you can usually take it apart and clean it up.
If the reverse lights flash on but go off as you move the shifter, you may be able to adjust the switch position, so check that first.

O/s rear lights not working on my Peugeot 308


Having been the GUY who changed the 3 way wall switch... because BOTH the HALLWAY lights were burned out... (situation remained in-resolved).

I always (now)
FIRST SUGGEST "one" should check those bulbs first.

Then get exotic and check the REVERSE LIGHT SWICH in the transmission.

My reversing lights are intermittent


Hello Patrick, I would locate and inspect the back up light switch. It could be bad or just need the linkage adjusted.

ABS light stays on and the back up lights don't work


Assuming it's not just burnt out light bulbs or a fuse, you may have a faulty switch on the transmission; usually referred to as the neutral safety switch. It's external and fairly easy to replace. It can definitely cause the reverse lights to not work and depending on the failure it could possibly interact with the ABS. Those vehicles are also susceptible to odd failures caused by a bad ignition switch, tho usually you'll get some other strange things like a bunch of warning lights, intermittent radio function, etc. Verify that the reverse bulbs and fuses are good, then put it in reverse with a helper or mirror to see the reverse lights and wiggle/rotate the key. If the lights come on then you've diagnosed the ignition switch, a pretty cheap and easy to replace item.

My 2001 Pathfinder intermittently won't crank (turn key, radio and AC come on but no engine crank). If I push/pull gear shift, it starts - is there a sensor to make sure its in Park to start that may


Many cars do have a switch on the gear shift to ensure it will not start if not in park, turn on the reverse lights when in reverse, turn on the camera when in reverse, park lights, etc. Here is an article that mentions it a little bit, http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/transmission-drivetrain/154-0805-1987-2001-jeep-cherokee-neutral-safety-switch/.

2010 3500 diesel automatic backup lights wont turn off


The reverse lights are turned on by the transmission range selector switch, it may be out of adjustment or defective. It is located on the transmission case on the drivers side of the truck. Isn't this still under warranty? 3/36?
