Not sure what transmssion you have but basically it goes from fuse on P/O wire to either the MLP switch on automatic or just a backup lamp switch on manual and leaves the switch on BK/PK wire to the bulbs. Should be easy to trace with a 12v test light.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Rear lights do not work, bulbs ok, fuse ok

You  probably have a frayed wire touching something metal (short to ground) check your wiring, check your grounds.

Hello! Back-up lights are controlled by a relay. Under hood is the "Power Distribution Box"; Open hinged lid and locate back-up lights relay. Remove and replace. You may notice that relay is melted; They are well known for this.

You can purchase a Haynes repair manual at most auto part stores for around $15

Reverse light does not work, checked bulbs and fuse and they look good, any suggestions?? 2001 ford focus sedan.. thanks


If the bulb and the fuse are good, (the fuse will affect other circuits as well, not only the reverse lights), your next stop is the reverse light switch. It is located on the gearbox and is a switch with two wires coming from it. Remove the wires and touch them together and see if the reverse light comes on with the ignition on. If they do, you need to replace the switch.

Where is the backup light sensor for 2003 cadilac deville


Hello: If you mean what turns the back-up lights on, the lights are controlled by the park neutral switch which is mounted on top of the transmission on the drivers side of the car. If you haven't checked the bulbs you need to do that first. Remove the rear license plate, then remove the screws that hold the molding behind the license plate then you can access the bulbs for the back up lights. If bulbs are good check the Park/Reverse fuse in the rear fuse block, if fuse is good check the reverse relay in the rear fuse block. The rear fuse block is on Left side under the rear bottom seat cushion.

If they all stopped working at the same time then it is probably a fuse or possibly 2. Check your fuse panels in the dash and under the hood. The dash lights and gauges should be a fuse labeled instrument cluster or guages, it is probably blown. The other fuse to look for will be the tail light fuse. This is where I would begin.

The brake lights and reverse lights do not work


I am assuming the rest of the lights work fine?If they do it is not likely a fuse because a fuse would be associated with more than just the rear lights.Have you checked bulbs?It is not necessary to check all of them but I would at least check 1 of both systems.

Reverse lights do not work


definately check the fuse, if it is good then you need to check the condition of ground in the light bulb sockets, if good then you will have to check the reverse light switch
