It's on the side of the transmission. There should be two 2 wire conections on the side. One is your neutral safety switch and the other is the reverse light switch. They either screw out or the have a bolt and fork holding them in.disconnect one of them and try to start it in gear. If it will start then the other one is the reverse light switch. if not then the one you pulled is it.

1999 chevy blazer 4x4 The 4 wheel drive dash switch is brand new. When in 2 wheel drive none of the buttons light up. When I push 4 hi the 4 hi and 4 lo button lights light up and seems to be in 4 hi. When...


It could be a junk switch or it could be bad contacts inside the transfer case motor.. Does the transfer case switch to the selected gears? Everytime? If so, you might try another switch. If it does the same, I would say the motor contacts are bad. Replace the motor if you want the lights, But I personally wouldn't do it until the motor quit switching gears. They're not cheap.

Why wont the reverse lights work on a 1997 chevy s-10 truck? I have changed the bulbs and checked the fuses, still no reverse lights


Have a look for a reverse switch on the gear box, it may have a wire off or the switch is not working. Check for power at the lights when in reverse.

I have a 1991 stock dodge W150 4wd truck with a 4 speed, I need to know what are the shift points? !st seems like a granny


I have an identical truck, 1991 Ram W150 with a 318 4speed bull low. They're called a bull low (bo low, granny four speed, farmers 4-spd) because theyre really only built for towing heavy loads, theyre a farm tractor transmission. You should never use first unless your towing a load, start in 2nd. I dont rev it too high when I shift mine. Best tranny for offroading by far, it really delivers the torque to crawl up tricky paths.

1971 ford f100 pickup neutral safety switch wiring color code


Ford Neutral Safety Switch; Ford Reverse Light Switch; Backup Light Switch.

The Neutral Safety Switch wires in my 1971 Ford F100 are orange with a blue stripe.
The Reverse, or Backup Light Switch wires are black with a red stripe.

There are two sets of two wires across this combined neutral safety and backup light switch, for a total of 4 wires. Photos are at the end of this post.

The switch for the 1971 Ford F100 pickup truck is the same as in many other years and models. For details, including parts numbers, see the following quote from an expert at Ford Truck Enthusiasts:
http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/287185-back-up-light-and-neutral-safety-switch-2.html#post5601846

The neutral switch also controls the backup lights, and is the same 1967/77.

C7TZ-7A247-A .. Neutral/Backup Switch (Motorcraft SW-600)

There is no separate backup light switch..except on 1967/68 F350's.

Neutral switch location 1967/77:

The plastic half moon shaped neutral safety switch mounts on the outside lower portion of the steering column (NOT on the transmission!).

It's activated by an inverted Y shaped lever that snaps on the shift tube

D0TZ-7B097-B .. Lever, Neutral Switch Actuator = From FTE sponsor DIRECT FORD PARTS: Ford suggested retail price: $18.72 / FTE member net: $13.23.

The switch is also still available from Ford, but the website is down so I can't post the list & net prices. .

1978 is the FIRST year the F100/350's have the neutral switch mounted on the transmission. __________________

The front, steering wheel side of the neutral / reverse switch after removal from the steering column. The switch's two functions are actuated when the lever in the column moves the switch lever shown here to different positions as gears are selected.

The neutral switch is installed on the steering column near the firewall, with 5/8" bolts into the steering column (visible hole) and down column from a rectangular opening in the column housing. The actuating lever for the switch is attached to the gear shift shaft inside the housing; the lever is visibly protruding from the opening in this image.

4 lo will NOT engage


More than likely, the shift switch is bad. This is a common problem with these chevys.

REVERSE LIGHT DO NOT WORK


Quite frankly I'm a GM guy, but after reading your question, to me a 3-4-or 5 spd , Below that shifter is a switch to indicate when the shifter is put into the reverse gate. Test its continuity and replace. Later model std's have switches on the trans. Hope this helps

The reverse ligths on my mom's S-10 pick up won't come on.


I'm guessing you checked the bulbs. test the reverse light switch. Should be found on the drivers side of the transmission. Should have power leaving it when the truck is in reverse.

4WD


Look for damaged wires, or something bent, on the Auto Disconnect Device on the front axle before you do anything else. The 4WD HI light is not coming on because the front diff is not engaging.
Re 4 LO: In 4 LO, you ar NOT getting "4 LO", what you are really getting 2WD LO, because of the output gearing of the transfer case.
In any case, your front diff is not locking in, in either mode. The A.D.D. controls the 4 Hi lite.
