I guess you mean where is the backup light switch on the manul transmission? Two transmissions possible boththe switch is on the drivers side near the top. on the big top loader the switch is screwed into the left side near thfront of the shifter pltae on the top of the transmission. the other trans mission does'nt have a pronounced shifter top cover and the swich also stickes out the drivers sideinabout the middle very close to the top of the transmission. it has a two wire plug one wire is hot with the key on and the other with power added toit should light the backup lights only. The wires do nothing else and the fuse is back up only.

My ignition switch won't turn on my 2007 Saab 9-3 . Steering wheel turns .key fob won't turn ignition switch.


Is it a manual transmission? I know some of the older
Saabs need the transmission in reverse to get the key out. Try wiggling the shifter and see if it helps with turning the key.

My reverse lights and my brake lights will not work with the anti theft light on in the dash


These lights are all computer controlled ! Several modules involved DIM - dash integrated module , RIM - rear integrated module .They share information on serial data communication network . Class 2 an or GMLAN !
The rear fuse block supplies battery positive voltage through the REVERSE LAMP fuse to the coil and switch terminals of the reverse lamp relay. The DIM sends a power mode message to the RIM indicating that the ignition is in the ON position. When the driver of an automatic transmission equipped vehicle places the gear selector in the REVERSE position, the powertrain control module (PCM) sends a class 2 message to the RIM. The message indicates that the gear selector lever is in the REVERSE position. When the driver places a manual transmission equipped vehicle in reverse the reverse gear position switch mounted on the transmission closes. This provides a ground for the reverse gear position switch signal line, informing the RIM that the transmission is in reverse. For both automatic and manual transmission vehicles the RIM then grounds the control circuit of the reverse lamp relay . This energizes the reverse lamp relay, closing the switch side contacts and providing battery positive voltage to the backup lamp bulbs. The backup lamps are permanently grounded at G402. With both power and ground the backup lamp bulbs illuminate. Once the driver moves the shift lever out of the reverse position a message is send either by class 2 by the PCM or the reverse gear position switch opens causing the RIM to remove the ground from the reverse lamp relay control circuit. This opens the contacts in the relay turning OFF the backup lamps.
This is something best left to the dealer or a ASE certified repair shop . Need a factory or professional grade scan tool to diagnose an repair this . http://www.public.asu.edu/~pheanis/documents/VBI_CAN.pdf

My 1992 Chevy 1500 truck revers lights stopped working. The fuse is fine and all other lights work.


If the fuse is good and the reverse lights are good, I would suspect your problem will be the reverse light switch itself. I believe yours is located on the side of the transmission where your linkage connects, if you have an automatic transmission.
If you have a manual transmission , you'll probably have to contact the local automotive parts store and ask them to tell you where it's located.

Neiither of my reverse lights won't light up when in reverse. The bulbs are not burnt out. I have no owners manual (I bought the car used). Can you give me some ideas of how to trouble-shoot the issue?


Simple the neutral saftey switch, back up light switch, and the ignition switch are all incorporated together so that will need to be replaced

How do i check the back up light switch in a 85 vw golf - manual transmission - gas engine?


place cars ignition in the acc position, but not started, lights on first position, put car in reverse. If the lights do not come on, chances are its either 1) the bulbs or 2) the switch. Switch is mounted on the transmission, and has a simple wire going to it.

How to change ignition switch


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering column shroud and lower the steering column.
  3. Disconnect the ignition switch electrical harness connector.
  4. Remove the 2 nuts retaining the ignition switch to the steering column housing.
  5. Lift the ignition switch upward to disengage the actuator rod from the switch and remove the switch.

To install:
When installing the ignition switch, both the locking mechanism at the top of the column and the switch itself must be in the LOCK position for correct adjustment. To hold the mechanical parts of the column in the LOCK position, move the shift lever into PARK (with automatic transmissions) or REVERSE (with manual transmissions), turn the key to the LOCK position, and remove the key. New replacement switches, when received, are already pinned in the LOCK position by a metal shipping pin inserted in a locking hole on the side of the switch.
  1. Engage the actuator rod in the ignition switch.
  2. Place the ignition switch on the steering column housing and loosely install the 2 retaining nuts.
  3. Move the switch up or down along the column to locate the mid-position of the actuator rod lash, then tighten the retaining nuts to 47-64 inch lbs. (5-7 Nm).
  4. Raise the steering column into position at instrument panel. Install steering column shroud.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Remove the locking pin, connect the negative battery cable, and verify that the engine will only crank in PARK and NEUTRAL . Also check to make certain that the start circuit cannot be actuated in the DRIVE and REVERSE positions.
