SOURCE: When I shift to Reverse my reverse lights wont work.

Buy a auto repair manual for your respective truck, or go to the Nissan dealer and ask a tech to show you where the actuator switch is located, and replace that switch. That is the only thing left to replace. That should fix it. Also you could use an Ohm meter to check the switch to see if it is bad. Also check for a broken wire when you remove the actuator switch.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: Reverse lights not working

i would get the diagram and take a look from there.
the safety neutral switch gets its power from a source and then lights up the reverse lights amongst other things.
alot of times vehicles are in accidents and wiring gets damaged.
make sure the reverse circuit is properly grounded.

SOURCE: reverse lights wont 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

hi from uk if everthing you checked is ok ? then fault is probably the brake light switch is either faulty or the plunger that is supposed to move out as the pedal is pressed so putting b/lights on has stuck inside/off position? so if you look up at b/pedal just below the pivot shaft forpedal you will see the switch and it is srewed into the pedal box assy it has a plug of two wires connected ? pull off plug then use a wire paper clip opened up and join the two contacts in plug this makes connection to b/lights on have assistant check lights work when ignition is on? if yes? then remove clip ign off then unscrew the actual switch from its hole when removed? check if plunger is coming all way out or is stuck ? if either of these try wd40 on the plastic plunger and work it in/out when you are happy it works ok ? then b4 you refit just connect the plug and again test with ign on plunger out lights on! plunger in lights off if it works? then unplug and screw switch back in hole to approx last position and connect plug recheck b/lights operate as you press pedal approx 3/4 " b4 lights operate this is trial+error screwing in or out untill you are happy lights give early warning to following cars that you are braking ? however if lights work with clip but not on switch after completing above ? then you will need to renew switch they do sometimes melt contacts and burn inside mostly due to constant holding car with footbrake instead of park brake for long periods also a common reason for brake light bulbs blowing bad driving habit ! so consider this advise please and hope all is clear above ?

I have a 95 jeep loredo . reverse light is not working , I checked the bulbs and fuses and they all good, I also change the neutral switch, still han no reverse light, any suggestion?

The neutral switch is so that you can't start your vehicle in a gear (drive, reverse, ect.) your looking to replace the backup lamp switch. Not sure where its located on your jeep but that sounds like the problem. Happy hunting!

My back reversing lights wont work but the bulbs and the fuse are all good?

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then it's definitely a reverse switch issue. If the reverse switch is faulty, the reverse light won't work even if the bulbs are fine. It is located underneath the transmission where it triggers when reverse is engaged. Have it replaced and you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Why wont my reverse lights stay on if they work?


if your reverse light don't stay on, first check the bulb.

If the bulb is okay, check the reverse light wire and make sure its intact.

Lastly, check your fuse box. You should find your fuse box under your steering and or inside the bonnet. Check if the fuse has blown.

Good luck.

The back up lights are not working. could it be

Most likely its the fuse. Check it and replace it if needed. If the fuse is good, check the light bulbs. If the bulbs are good, check the wires on the switch by the break pedal (this switch is monted above the break pedal, just follow the lever where the pedal is mounted all the way up until you find the switch). If the wires are connected, use a tester to see if the switch is working when activated.

Back up lights on my eclipse dont work.

Are the bulbs good and is the fuse good? If they're both good, then the odds are the reverse switch has gone bad. The switch is located on the side of the transmission and will have several wires coming out of it

95 Chevy truck tail lights don't work; everything else- brake, turn, backup & hazard do.I checked fuses in dash, replaced headlamp switch-still won't work.

check the bulbs they are a duel fillament bulb possibly have wrong bulb or one side is burnded out. if I remeber correctly the part No#3157 it should be stamped on base of bulb these should be the 2 top bulbs.the lower reverse light is a single fillament part No#3156 also check the sockets and plugs for a good connecton.
