With engine off and key on, emergency brake set, place the gear selector in reverse, using a volt ohm meter check for voltage at bulb terminals. If voltage is present then the switch is working and the wiring to the lamp is good. Next check the other terminal with the ohmmeter to ground for connection. Sounds like a bad ground.

I have a 2002 GMC 1500hd 4x4 6.0 gas engine. Have no break lights. Tail lights and turn signals work fine. Replaced fuses and stop light switch and still have no break lights


GM had a lot of problems with the circuit boards that house the rear lights. My suggestion is to use a test light clip one end to the trucks body parts then remove brake light switch the orange wire should light the bulb on test light this is the power wire, the white wire is the stop light circuit with switch out this also should be lite up. Drop down turn signal switch connector the brake lamp wire goes up the turn signal switch and comes back down the yellow and green wires no power there it is a bad turn signal switch. If Ok Now remove one tail lamp assembly unplug harness and test for power if still have no power trace wiring back to fire wall and check at bulkhead connector. IF ok then circuit board is bad.

Hi I am helping my neighbor with a 1988 350 econoline van she has. I cant get the back up lights to work? At the switch on the tranny I could get a red and blue wire to light up wile in reverse but after...


From the switch on the transmission, the wire should go straight to the bulbs. If you jump a wire from the switch to the lights, and they don't work, check the ground for those lights.

Reversing lights not working on my 1.6 ford escort m reg 1994. ive checked bulbs but still nothing. someone told me about a switch but i cant find it. any help please???


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....

Back up lights


Check the side of your transmission and you should see the reverse switch that will have several wires coming out of it. This controls your reverse lights

Ignition problem on ford escort.


The battery might seem ok but I would take it to a place like Sears or a large auto parts store.Call them first to be sure they have a load tester.. Tell them the battery needs to be "load tested".When you turn the key to start it takes alot more amp power to turn the engine over.
I hope this helps you.

Reverse lights not working


Did you replace the back up light switch? Also try having someone watch the lights as you wiggle the shifter while in reverse position with the key on-trace the circuit from the column to the the lights with a test light sounds like a bad switch
