You will need to either replace or adjust your backup switch. It's not being made or not working when you put it in reverse. It should be at the shifter on the trans.

check light bulbs are ok in reverse lights. Check wiring to reverse lights - see if they put a fuse at or near where they tapped power off reverse light.

My Kubota svl90 back up alarm quit working. I'm truly not complaining, but was wondering if there is a switch I somehow turned off. I wouldn't mind having it on for my larger commercial jobs.


There should be no switch to turn off. The back up alarm is hooked directly to the reverse lights ( On most units if equipped ) or the reverse switch. If the unit is equipped with reverse lights,do they work? If not check fuses. If not equipped with reverse lights suspect the back up alarm to be at fault. You can test it with a test light to see if power is being applied to it when in reverse

The reverse gear is fine but when you let go of the gear stick the reverse lights go out and light pressure put back on gear stick bits lights back in


Ok! This is the reverse light switch located under the gear stick gaiter! Could just need adjusting.....double nut locking system or is faulty/broken! The switch has a plunger that is activated by the movement of the gear stick to reverse!

No reverse lights


every vehicle is from factory either with one or two reversing lights. Check the tail of your car for a white cluster light unit and when car is not running just turn the ignition on position and put the reverse and go back of the vehicle and see. If you have a white reversing light unit but not working the you have to go on the gear box and check for the reverse switch.Possible not working. Just remove it and on the end which goes in the gear box has a roller ball, just put in a small can some clean petrol and put it in and with your hand push the roller ball in and out just to clean from some dirt might got in and stopped it working.

Reverse lights turn on when backing up


I would check the fuse and the relay. If those are good,I would then either check the gear selector or the transmission for the reverse switch. This switch when activated sends a signal to your reverse lights to turn on.

When I put my truck in reverse the reverse lights dont work


There is a reverse light switch in your gearshift on some cars/trucks that can go bad..
I would check the light bulbs, then the wiring back to your reverse lights, check to see if you have a fuse that could of blown for your model truck, then think about replacing your reverse switch.

2005 Pathfinder no reverse lights


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

No reverse lights


Check for burned fuse first, then try having someone stand behind car as you move shifter through all the gears slowly too see if back-up lights flick on & off at all during. Move it back & forth from reverse to neutral & drive a couple of times too, real slow & watch for back-ups to light momentarily.
