Unplug the wire to the back up light switch. Bend 1 paper clip so you can connect in the 2 terminals on the wire making sure it doesn't touch any metal , turn your key to the on position do not start. If your parked on a hill engage the parking brake and shift to reverse, if your lights work then you know its a bad back-up light switch. if they are not yet active then it's a short. check fuses , bulbs and worst case the wires (highly doubtful)


this is a crude test but it always works

BACK-UP LIGHT SWITCH The back-up light switch is located at the upper left side of the transaxle case. The switch is screwed into the transaxle and serviced by replacement. No adjustment is possible.

Also, first try to replace the bulbs.

Also, if the above two solutions do not work, it could be a wiring problem.

REVERSWE LIGHT NOT WORKING


There is an actual switch that gets activated when you move the shifter into rev, I would suspect that this switch is bad or the connection to it is corroded. You will need to google Reverse Light Switch to find it's location.

2004 Ford Escape BACKUP LIGHTS both are completely not working. We have new bulbs and the fuse is new what could be the problem for the lights not working?


My guess would be the neutral safety switch on the transmission.
The switch also acts as a backup light switch when the shifter is in reverse.
I would check for power at the switch for the reverse light circuit.

I have a 2002 ford explore , the revese lights will not go on when in revese gear ??? have changed neutral saftey switch,cheched bulbs wiring,sockets.


When a driver engages the reverse gear he or she automatically switches the reverse light on by triggering the switch on and if the lights are not coming on it means that a number of reasons are to blame. I will start with fuses and the wiring around the switch. Thank you for using fixya!

Back up lights are not working. 2004 Silverado HD


Switch on the ignition. Put in reverse. Do the following tests.
Locate the fuse and remove it. With the ignition on you should get 12V on one of the now exposed terminals in the fuse box. If not you have a break between the battery and the fuse.
Measure between each of the wires on the switch and earth(negative) - should be 12 V on both. If not disconnect the wires. You should get 12V on one. If not, your supply is at fault (a break between the fuse and the switch). Measure resistance on the other wire, should be about 5 ohm. (or just connect a lead from battery positive to this wire, the lights should go on) If not the problem is downstream.(toward the lights).
Measure resistance across the switch terminals. Should be 0(or close to it when reverse is engaged) If not the switch is faulty(again) or is not being activated by the inner workings of the transm.
Put the lights' wire back. Place lead wire on the other connector of the switch and the lights should once again be lit.

HOW TO SYNCHRONIZE BACKUP LIGHTS WITH REVERSE GEAR ON 1996 JEEP C


The neutral safety switch can be adjusted to make this work. (loosen it and turn , then lock it down. This changes neutral start position as well so make sure both work when you're finished! Switch is on right side of trans. Switch is about $220 so don't break it!
