SOURCE: reversing lights not working on my 1.6 ford escort

There is a switch attached to the gearbox which activates the reversing lamps when you place the gearbox into reverse. This switch has two wires going to it, one wire is an ignition live feed and the other is the feed to the rear lamps. This switch is usually on the side of the gearbox but quite high up towards the top of the gearbox. You can remove this switch with no danger of losing gearbox oil and replace it. Using a test lamp (which you can buy from any auto parts store), connect the end with the clip to the body on a clean area to ensure a good electrical connection and the pointy end to each of the wires on the switch in turn. With the ignition on but the engine NOT RUNNING, one wire should be active and the other will become active when the gearbox is placed in reverse gear. If neither of the wires are active, check fuses etc. If one wire is active but the other does not become active when reverse is selected, replace the switch. If both wires do what they are supposed too, check the wiring from the switch back to the rear lamps and check for broken or disconnected wires. The switch can be accessed from underneath the vehicle. Remember that these tests are conducted with the ignition turned on but THE ENGINE NOT RUNNING....

The reverse switch is on the left side of the transmission. Exact location depends on which engine/trans you have.

Reverse lights stay on 1994 ford probe 5 speed manaul


It could be a wiring problem. I have seen where kids try and put a speaker system in their car, and they cut or pull one too many wires. Then something like this happens. Your best bet would try and get your hands on a owners manual and see what wires are being moved or not connected.

Reverse lights will not work and I have replaced the bulbs and the fuse


There is a switch that controls the Neutral Safety Switch, and the Back-Up lights with the automatic transmission.

Manual trans usually have a single switch mounted where the shift rail inside the trans causes a switch to turn on the Back-up lights when you shift into reverse. Just a Back-up switch @ 15.00 + Ship on eBay for this type.

good luck

My reverse light stays on


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'.
