How to replace bulb in back up lights?


Open the trunk and carefully pull off the trunk lid carpet liner by working at each black push-pin. They will be tight, so confine your pulling to as close to each as possible. Using a deepwell 10mm socket, remove the 11 (?) nut washers on the studs holding the license plate and lamp assembly onto the trunk lid. Carefully remove the entire license plate/lamp assembly. You can remove the sockets and harness if desired.

You will need to replace ALL the bulbs - why go through this again ?? You'll need 4 each #194 (tag/running lights), 4 each #3457, and 2 each 2357.

The OEM bulbs are #3057 and #1157, but the new numbers are slightly brighter. Don't worry about the backup lamp bulbs being dual-filament: the wedge base will always align the correct filaments in the socket.

Now place a dab of flexible duct seal (hardware store) around each stud base. Carefully push the assembly back into place, and using an assistant, check the operation of all circuits. OK ?? replace all the nut washers, snugging them up in a center to outside sequence to spread the loads - don't tighten each one all the way the first time - work around and around 3 times.

If you still have a bulb out or dim bulbs, then check the wire harness where it exits the left trunk hinge rail and also the harness ground at the sheet metal at the left fenderwell.

1988 pathfinder no dash lights no revers lights no tail lights no gaiges


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.

When put in reverse the lights dont work. have checked bulbs they are ok. any suggestions welcome


Have you checked for voltage at the light socket with the bulbs removed? If no voltage, then you may have a bad reverse switch. If you have voltage, (with car off, car in reverse, and ignition on) the try new bulbs. Even a bulb that LOOKS good can be bad

My reverse lights don't work on my 04 F150 do you think the back-up switch is bad or just a fuse? javascript:;


I would check the bulbs, remove them and test with a DC power source ( DC power adapter to 2 wires Pos + Neg )

Fuse #14 has the reverse lamps on it, as well as the Day Time Running Lamps ( DRL ) relay coil, the shift interlock ( would not be able to take the truck out of park, while it was running ), and some other items I am missing at the moment.

If you cannot make the test harness to a DC power outlet, you can block the wheels ( at least 2 - front and rear ) on a level surface, turn the key to the run position ( do not start ) and place the truck in reverse, and check the bulb socket with a meter or test light to check for power.
If it is installed, you can also check the Trailer Tow adapter reverse circuit as well ( this is relay is triggered by the reverse circuit ).

If you do not have power at either ( don't forget to check for corrosion on the trailer tow 7 pin adapter ) this would be the DTR ( Digital Transmission Range ) sensor on the side of the automatic transmissions.

Have you used an aux backup lamp on the truck's reverse circuit ? ( not the trailer tow 7 pin adapter )
The DTR sensor and reverse circuit does not like 1 AMP additional load on it ( the lights will not burn at full brightness ) and if an additional load has been on them, the DTR sensor at the reverse contacts could be carbon'd up.

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

Tail lights 99 jeep grand cherroke limited


have you checked the bulb sockets to see if they are burnt or corroded sometime i see that the plastic melts around the contacts where the socket twists into the housing. if your lucky you might get away with replacing just the socket for the brake/running light bulb. but if it is too melted your most likely going to need a new housing

Lights prob


the sockets should ONLY have power when in reverse. if they have power when not in reverse, you have a bad wire connection somewhere. the cheapest way to go is to buy brand new bulbs if you haven't already. they are only about $2.

1998 Pontiac Sunfire backup lamp (reverse lights) are not working. Replaced bulbs. Worked once then quit. Cleaned out bulb receptacles. One bulb worked but the other did not . Bought another set of bulbs....


I see this a lot at the autoparts store I work at....

Go to your local parts store and inquire about a backup light switch. Be specific though because there is also a backup/neutral safety switch (for manual vehichles) this is not the part you want.

In most cases you will have power at the pigtail but when put in reverse the switch will not function properly and actually cut power to the lights. I offer no garanty that this will solve your problem, it is just an issue I see often and is typically the solution.

FYI: I sell 100 bulbs a day and can tell you that in a lot of cases (GM cars especially) depending on which factory your car came out of they could have used different pigtails (sockets) which require different bulbs, try one of each bulb number in the original socket and see which one fits, that one will be correct (there should also be print at the bottom of the old bulb with the correct part number on it (ignore any letters they dont mean anything).

Good luck, Hope I was of some help.

Right Indicator light (Amber) is not working


Try installing a different bulb in that socket. Did you check voltage at the inner prongs where the bulb goes in or was it checked at the wiring. Check the condition of the socket that the bulb goes into. You may have to cut off the socket and replace it with a good one.
