Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Reverse lights not working, (bulbs good) put in reverse and nothing comes on.
Reversing Switch attached to the engine block.
Part Costs about £15 but about £50 to get fixed if in a garage.
Easy DIY Job which could take about an hour.

If the sockets are properly grounded, the next place you need to check is the neutral safety switch, located on the right side of the transmission.
With the connector clip up and the harness plug facing you, jump between the lower right and upper left contacts. If the reverse lights come on then remove the switch (directions in haynes and chilton).
The switch new is expensive so a scrapyard item is a good idea, or, if you are very careful (loose small contacts inside) you can usually take it apart and clean it up.
If the reverse lights flash on but go off as you move the shifter, you may be able to adjust the switch position, so check that first.
