To replace your back-up light Switch, Its located on the Side of your Transmission,You'll see a Wire Connection Going to the Switch.Remove the Wiring Connection.

The Back Up Switch is Threaed in your Transmission.Unscrew it and replace with your New Switch. and reconnect your Electrical Plug.

This will solve your Problem.And your Back up lights should be working now unless you have Light Bulbs burnt Out,If so Replace the Bulbs also.

How to rewire a backup switch on a Manuel transmission for a 1989 jeep wrangler

use a fuse never un wires unfused, ever
it works just like a flash light.
battery > switch>>> lamp.
so if the lamp is stuck on the switch is shorted.

"...reverse, but the light stays on, all the time."

Back up lights not working

auto or sticK? tranny?

you need a schematic, and FSM
the circuit is complex (why alludes me) im looking now
see page 108 and 158 here PPD pages.

so many connections...
the car with A/T has 2 backup switches.
the PRNDL (jeep is 1-2-D-R)
and a tranny mounted back up switch
both have 12v as inputs. and both can glow the reverse lamps
page 158
see Feed12, that is power.
see it feed both switches and the merge to the lamp feed.
why 2 switches, ive not a clue.
my guess, is its for redundancy.
if the PRNDL fails the real gear switch BU, works and lamps still glow.
so yours is busted 2 time.
Fuse 6 feeds The Feed12,
so use a voltmeter and check the voltages a page 158
a few tests there tells you, is the feed lost before or after the 2 switches.

1998 Jeep Wrangler Sport tail lights don't work. Stop lamps, turn signals, reverse lamps all work. Everything seems to work except the tail lights.

if the bulbs are good, the only thing left is the headlight switch, or wires. black/yellow wires from the switch all the way back to bulbs. ck power to the bulbs first. if no power, then ck power at switch.

Driving lights

The next time they are on try pushing in on the switch. If just a little pressure turns them off and as soon as you let off they come back on then replace the head lamp stalk switch. This worked for me on my 2003 Jeep Rubicon.
