It comes from the transmission range sensor. When you put the lever in reverse the sensor on the transmission relays this to the backup lights.

Why do the reverse lights remain lit when the ignition is switched on and the suv is running. This happens in all gears. I removed the center console to look for the reverse light switch, and it seem

You may be looking in the wrong place. It is on the transmission. The switch must be pretty wimpy because it doesn't directly drive the reverse lights, but connects to a reverse light relay in the smart junction box. The relay could be stuck. Unplug the two wire connector at the transmission then turn the key to RUN and see if the reverse lights are still on. If they are on then the relay is stuck and needs to be replaced. If they are not on then the switch in the transmission is bad.

Are the back up (reverse lights) in series---where if one bulb is out neither side works---on a jeep cherokee?

no, they are 12 volt bulbs and require parallel wiring. If you have a manual transmission, check the reverse light switch on the transmission for continuity with the transmission in reverse. If you have an automatic, the reverse switch is integrated into the transmission range switch at the shift cable attach point. In either case, the wires at the switch are yellow/dark green stripe and brown/light green stripe.

Check the neutral start/backup light switch on transmission. Block the wheels and raise truck up enough to get under on drivers side. It will be a round black plu g with 3 wires going to it. Remove the plug from switch. have someone to shift the transmission into reverse.Using an ohm meter check for continuity between the outer two post on switch. If you find continuity between the two outer post only in reverse on the switch then the switch is good. Also check for continuity between outer post on switch to transmission case. There should be no continuity. Hope this will help you.

No backup lights but blinkers work

Reverse switch is defective or the wire to it has come off (located on on standard transmission usually on the side but maybe on top, if automatic transmission it will be part of your prndl switch which is on the drivers side of the transmission).

My reverse lights dont work and i need to no where at on trans.

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
