The backup light gets its power from the neutral safety switch on transmission.
\When you put vehicle in reverse it toggles the switch in the tranny to engage the backup lights.
if that plug has the wire broke off the backup lights will not work.

I need to replace the NSS on a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport. It's a 4.0L 6cyl (straight line). Where is the NSS located on the vehicle?


?What do you mean NSS? Neutral Safety Switch? NSS is not an Abbreviation that I have ever heard of in 40 years. If you are talking about a Neutral Safety switch it is located in the transmission and would keep you from starting the vehicle unless it is in park or Neutral. Assuming you are talking about this and it's not the more common problem in the vehicles of the Linkage being out of adjustment it is located inside the transmission and can actually be replaced without any special tools or dropping the transmission in most cases.
