My reverse light stays on

I have a 1996 Ford F250 4X4, 5.8L ZF5. The reverse tight stays on anytime the key is engaged. How do I fix this problem without rerouting the reverse light to a manual switch?

It seems the reverse light switch which is fitted on the gear box has sized to 'on' position, the remedy is to replace the switch.
To male sure its the switch, locate it and remove the connection to the switch thn check it out if the reverse light stays 'on' whn you turn the igntion 'on'.

My 1996 ford explorer wont engage into gear and no brake lights. Have to barely turn key on to get it to Neutral then start explorer and no brake light.


You kind of answered your own Question. If the shifter is a floor shifter and not on the column I would check the linkage there. Do you have reverse lights? And after it starts does it go into gear or is it a dead stick? I would also check to see if the shift cable on the trans is moving with someone moving the shifter. It might be the cable or module on the brake pedal. Give more info after trying these and let me know.

It sounds like the small tickler wires may be reversed to the Solenoid.

If no success, call Itasca and ask if there were any changes for this Solenoid. There are several types of Solenoid with the grounding being the major internal difference. Most likely your wires are switched.

considering its winter the best way is to put some thing in front of front tires and try to move forwards if you cant put it in 4 wheel mode and then try it. if you climb over then axles are engaged.

Your car has pass lock I, this is an easy fix. Simply attempt to start the car. The theft light will come on and may flash. Leave the key on after you try to start it for about 10 mintues. IF indeed it is a passlock I issues it will relearn and start up after 10minutes. If at anytime the key is turned back off after the intial start, the process must be restarted. Pass lock allows fuel to make it to the injectors and then pulse enough to get engine RPM to around 800 and then shuts the off injectors not the fuel pump. Let me know how you make out.
