Does you shift indicator point to "R" when in reverse. The reverse light are switched on by the selector shaft position sensor built into the Parp/Neutral Safety Switch. It may be bad or just out of adjustment.

SOURCE: Can't remove back light to change reverse light bulb.

Sorry I have been out of town. I went to the library and borrowed the Chilton book. I already had it right, but the back light cover was just not being cooperative. After jiggling it a little more, it came off and I was able to change the bulb. I wish they had made it simpler like the old Camry _ where there wasn't so much difficulty getting at the bulbs.

Thank you for checking.

SOURCE: reverse light dont work

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

Check the brake light switch should be a orange wire with 12v then a white wire with 12v when the pedal is pressed.If htat cks good then ck the hazard switch by moving it up and down and wiggeling the knob with the brake pedal pressed if they start working then your multifunction switch is bad and needs to be replaced.

My brake lights are not working, the signal and 4 way flashers work but not the brake lights, what could be the issue? My suv is a 96 gmc jimmy sls 4 door, 4wd.


If both brake lights stopped working at the same time it could be the bulb even though the flashers work, but more than likely it is a fuse. Check your fuse panel in the dash and also the fuse box under the hood.

1997 GMC Jimmy, Won't go into reverse,but all other gears work,ok.


Check the automatic transmission fluid color.

It should be lite pink and there is ZERO odor of burn friction material.

TOP OFF is it's low on ATF

=====

Have some one the check on the reverse light when you put the truck into the reverse gear.

NO reverse lights then the neutral safety is falling.

=====

Check for free play on the gear lever. Pay close attention on the transmission end.

USE clear to remove excess dirt.

=====

Inspect transmission pan and the floor for ATF leak.

=====

Please rate my answer if it's helpful to you.

Cheers,

MUSTGO.
