How to replace rear license plate light connector?

You'll need to obtain a replacement lamp holder. I do not know which particular year vehicle you have - nor do I know if it is the socket or if it is a connector between the socket and the vehicle's wiring harness (you mention both).

You may have luck at a local auto parts store for a socket. If yours is the type that consists of a lens and socket being one piece, you'll probably need to purchase a replacement at a Mazda dealer - or a local junk yard.

If it is a connector - again - the auto parts store, dealer or junk yard should have these parts. You can also cut the connector off and splice the replacement directly to the vehicle wiring if you cant get the part fast enough. If you do this, make sure the connection is tight and waterproof by coating the completed splice with silicone caulking or similar.

I changed the clutch in my 90 K1500 chevy 4x4 5 speed, now I have not got backup lights. I had backup lights up to that point. What advice does anyone have for me?

You may have left the backup light connector off the transmission or damaged the wiring to it, go under the truck and reconnect it to the sensor that is screwed into the case of the transmission.

Where is the backup light switch for a1996 dodge caravan w/3.0

Bottom front left side of transmission just above pan gasket. Just inside and ahead of the left wheel. A wired connector attaches to it. You don't need to jack the car up to get to it but it helps to get a bit more room. Disconnect connector. With appropriate box end wrench OR deep socket, remove switch. Replace switch. Haynes says 24 ft-lb torque. You should probably have a drip pan in case some fluid leaks out. With the front jacked up some, there was no leakage. The connector fit is tight. You can rotate it C and CCW a tiny bit safely.

Flaky transmission range sensor connector

I'm not sure if it can be. Lots of these newer connectors are sold as , you know, only complete and you splice it in. Is it bad on the switch side or the body harness side of the connector? Heck, if it's just to the back-up bulbs, you could connect the two wires together outside of the connector, and bypass the connector problem on that one wire. That would be the easiest fix, as long as the other pin connections are good
Now on the older removeable spade type connectors, you slip a fine wire or needle along the top of the metal pin to push down a little tang, and then the wire and pin will pull out from back of the plastic connector.
Well, good luck, Bill.

Transmission fluid leaking

The leak is from the electrical connector located on the front passenger side of the transmission just about the pan. The O-ring on the connector fails resulting in a leak. Talking to a friend at a parts counter for Chrysler this connector seems to be the item frequently replaced and seems to be the only problem. The way the leak looks on the transmission may falsely suggest that it is a pan gasket. I have seen this same problem on Mercedes as well that uses The NAG1 transmission which is what I have on my 2006 Grand Cherokee.

Backup lights not working but if you jiggle the shifter, you can get the "R" to light up and then they work

Loose connector or mis-aligned shifter. Was the transmission recently serviced/rebuilt/replaced? May be out of adjustment.
Good luck, TD

My van occasionally downshifts on its own

The main wiring harness connector for electrical to the transmission is dirty, cracked, or otherwise not connecting tightly, and causes faults in electrical signals to the transmission. This can also cause the reverse to cut in/out and make large banging noises with no immediate damage. You may have to replace the connector.

Backup lights not working

There is a connector on the top of the manual transmission. It is close to the battery box. It should face forward, meaning you can detach the connector from the (reverse) sensor by pulling the connector towards the front of the car. A possible issue is that this connector has gotten dirty or is not making a good connection. Check out this connector first to see if it looks clean and in good shape. The connector only has 2 electrical connections, kind of like small spade terminals in the connector. Make sure they are clean and making good connection with the sensor on the top of the tranny.

It's also possible to remove the reverse sensor from the transmission. It's in a cylindrical black plastic housing tha covers the portion of the shift linkage that actually enters the transmission. The sensor itself is pretty rugged, but it's possible that this black plastic housing has come loose or dislodged.

2002 MDX backup lights stay on

The back up lights are turned on by the transmission range selector switch, this is the switch that moves with the gear selection arm at the transmission, unplug the switch (large multi wire connector) and if the backup lights go out the switch has shorted and needs to be replaced, one question why don't you just remove the backup light bulbs until U install the new part??
