Why don't my 1998 s10 backup lights work when car is in reverse, stop and tail lights work fine all bulbs and fuses seem to be good ?

if the backup bulbs are good then check the neutral switch as this is where the reverse switch is, its part of the neutral switch. it may have stopped working and need replacing. you will be replacing the neutral switch. if you have power out of the switch then check for power and ground at the light socket as there could be a bad wire or connection.

I have a 96 nissan altima and it has no reverse lights and bulbs have been replaced !

There still should be an electric switch somewhere on the linkage for reverse lights. Try looking up the part at Autozone or Advance autoparts and you can probably find a picture for the backup light switch.

Just enter your vehicle on the sites and see what pops up. Once you see what the part looks like, it will be easier to find. Also, if you do not have a Owners Manual, register your car on Autozone and you can get fusebox diagrams and wiring details.

Since this is a stick shift, the Backup lights may have their own fuse.

Please rate my solution.

2003 silverado 1500 p/u my reverse lights are not

Check the neutral start/backup light switch on transmission. Block the wheels and raise truck up enough to get under on drivers side. It will be a round black plu g with 3 wires going to it. Remove the plug from switch. have someone to shift the transmission into reverse.Using an ohm meter check for continuity between the outer two post on switch. If you find continuity between the two outer post only in reverse on the switch then the switch is good. Also check for continuity between outer post on switch to transmission case. There should be no continuity. Hope this will help you.

1991 Volvo 240 backup lights do not work

The 240 was always a bit susceptible to poor electrical connections in the taillights. Check all the connections at the taillights thoroughly and then work back through the wiring. The other major possibility is that the reverse-engaged switch (is engaged by gear shift) has failed. I can't remember off the top of my head, how to get at a Volvo's switch but a bit of poking around the gearstick should probably find it for you.
Hope this helps - please message me if you require extra info/help Sherwin

Backup lights do not work...1987 bulbs installed, all other lights work reverse, with lights on, backup lights do not come on. Where is the backup light switch? There is a set...

it depends if it is auto or manual. There is a nuetral saftey switch on the auto-located on the manual valve arm(the piece that the linkage from the shifter connects to at the trans.) On the manual trans. there will be a 2 pole switch on the top shift plate that is for reverse only. The starting(clutch engagement switch)is located at the clutch pedal-2 seperate switches. First check for power at the back up light bulb connecter with reverse engaged(may have power at all times when key is on). Then check for ground when reverse is engaged-from bulb connecter to ground) with reverse engaged. The switch will just provide the ground when reverse is engaged. The power comes from an alternate source. Most likley a switch issue but at least this way you can be sure.

Reverse light not working

There is a sensor that connects to the light shifter which tells the car when it is in reverse. It may need to be replaced. You can remove it and check it with an ohmmeter or voltmeter to see if it is good or not.

New rear backup bulbs but they still don't 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
