At left (drivers side) rear of transmission, it should be threaded in, with wires running to it.

2003 Chevy Malibu back up light fuse location to be replaced.


Backup Lamps
The B/U LMP fuse #42 in the underhood junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the park/neutral position switch. When the driver places the gear selector lever in the REVERSE position, the current flow is from the park/neutral position switch to the backup lamps. The backup lamps are grounded at G401 and G402.
Are you also having shifting problems ? If not , I can tell you it's not the fuse ! Wiring problem, the bulbs , park/neutral position switch !

Why backup lights blowing fuse every time the van is put in reverse.2000 chevy venture


Most likely the lead to the reverse lights has been worn through and is grounded out.

Remove both of your tail lights, Locate the wire for your reverse light and see if you can track it back very far to see if you can see the wire worn through anywhere. There is also a possibility that it could be worn and/or shorting near your reverse sensor switch (near your automatic transmission shifter stick)

also make sure your reverse lights are good and not filled with water or anything else either.

Location of the Backup light switch.


I didn't find a location for the backup light switch,

But found the following on Autozone.com:

Backup Light Switch Operation:
00610_backup_light_switch.jpgAn open switch that prevents voltage from being applied to the backup lights until the vehicle is put in reverse. Putting the vehicle in reverse closes the contact and applies power to the rear back-up lights. Check under the dash or somewhere near the steering column if you have a column shifter. If the shifter closes or opens the backup light switch mechanically, one should be able to trace the cable and mechanisms that turn a cam that connects to the backup light switch, somehow. May have to disassemble the steering column area to see it.

Where is the neutral safety switch on a 96 camero


The park/neutral position switch prevents the car from being started when the transmission is in any gear other than Park or Neutral.. When the transmission is in Reverse (with the engine running), the switch completes the back-up light circuit, illuminating the back-up lights.

Fig. 1: After removing the console, you can access the park/neutral position switch.

Hope help with this (remember rated this post).

Backup lights do not work...1987 325ic...new bulbs installed, all other lights work perfectly...in reverse, with lights on, backup lights do not come on. Where is the backup light switch? There is a set...


it depends if it is auto or manual. There is a nuetral saftey switch on the auto-located on the manual valve arm(the piece that the linkage from the shifter connects to at the trans.) On the manual trans. there will be a 2 pole switch on the top shift plate that is for reverse only. The starting(clutch engagement switch)is located at the clutch pedal-2 seperate switches. First check for power at the back up light bulb connecter with reverse engaged(may have power at all times when key is on). Then check for ground when reverse is engaged-from bulb connecter to ground) with reverse engaged. The switch will just provide the ground when reverse is engaged. The power comes from an alternate source. Most likley a switch issue but at least this way you can be sure.

Need to locate backup light switch on 1988 chevy 1500


I had the same problem. My backup lights wouldn't come on in when I put the auto. trans. shifter into the Reverse position. They WOULD come on briefly as I moved the shifter from Park position into Reverse, but would go off again when the shifter reached the Reverse detent. I got the solution from the Haynes service manual, in which the relevant switch is referred to as something like the neutral safety switch. Check on top of the steering column close to the firewall. Set the parking brake, then move the auto. trans. shifter into Neutral position. Get under the dash and rotate the neutral safety switch clockwise as far as it will go. Then move the shifter into the Park position, and your switch should be set. If the backup lights don't come on now when the shifter is put into Reverse position with the ignition switch 'on', there may be another problem.

Reverse lights don't work


simple thing first... make sure the bulbs are not burnt out... check the fuse.... then there is a sensor/switch located either on the steering colunm or on the transmission. quick test... put it in reverse and jiggle the shifter... if they come on that takes care of the first two issues....
