SOURCE: can you help me ,my backup light don:t work when you put in rever

Check the tiny little marker lights that are in the side of the taillights.  I don't know why, but if even one of those little bulbs doesn't work, you'll have no reverse lights either.  
I fought with my Cherokee for a while before finding the culprit.  If the engine starts in Park or Neutral, the neutral safety switch is just fine.

Reverse lights dont come on


Check for voltage at the neutral safety switch if the bulbs are good.
The switch also powers the backup light bulbs in reverse.

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.

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.
