Inside the vehicle, mounted at the top of your brake pedel. Tough to get to and not an easy replacement for a novice. There has been a recall on the original brake light switches on most all of the early VW Beetles. You can get more information regarding the recall from your VW Dealer. The switch on my 1998 VW Beetele was replaced twice early on.

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.
