It's probably the switch on the transmission that is triggered when you go into reverse. It failed on my 300ZX once, and I was able to get a replacement at the dealer for about $25.

Have a 2008 Maxima SE-all interior lights and trunk lights stopped working over a year ago (dashboard lights work).Replaced fuses a couple of times, works for a day or so and the goes out. Mechanic do


You seem to have a short in that fused system. Think back to when this problem started, did you have some work done such as a new radio, or a power antenna, or maybe speakers. If this brings something to mind those items should be checked. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

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.

Reverse and interior lights out, chevy express van


Fuse block under the hood. Driver's side, under the brake master cylinder. Number 18. TCB#2. Replace the fuse.

There is an under-engineered ground in the reverse circuit. If you back up with the dome lights on, it could blow that fuse. There should be some extra fuses under the cover of the fuse block.

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.

Left drive lights not working


It sounds like a couple of blown bulbs. Open up the light fixture where the drive lights are found and replace the bulbs.
