There is a reverse switch that is on the transmission that engages when you put your gear selector in reverse. This tells the lights when to come on. I would recommend that you check the connection on the switch prior to buying a new one. The wires will sometimes lose connectivity, and simply need to re-establish a connection.

Reverse lights dont come on


Check for voltage at the neutral safety switch if the bulbs are good.
The switch also powers the backup light bulbs in reverse.

All fuses are good - brake lights, rear running lights work fine. but the reverse lights won't come on when put into reverse. Any idea what might be going on? As far as I know the bulbs are still good...


You will need to either replace or adjust your backup switch, it is located on the transmission next to the shifter. Hope this helps, thank you for using FixYa!

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!

When I put my truck in reverse the reverse lights dont work


There is a reverse light switch in your gearshift on some cars/trucks that can go bad..
I would check the light bulbs, then the wiring back to your reverse lights, check to see if you have a fuse that could of blown for your model truck, then think about replacing your reverse switch.

you might have a reverse switch fault check on the box to see if it is connecting to the gear leaver when you put it in reverse..if not then that will have to be replaced, it might be the plunger in the switch broken or worn away..hope this helps

No backup lights. Bulbs are all fine, fuses also.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Additionally check the reverse switch and its wiring/connectors. The reverse switch is located at the transmission. This is also part of the neutral start switch assembly. This page would give you additional insight.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful wouldbe detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address yourconcern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

Could you take out a bulb and with a testlight/probe check that you do in fact have power to that circuit .Also check that they are the correct bulb for that application I have seen people put indicator bulbs in where therse supposed to be a double filament bulb.Does the base of the bulbs lead contacts line up with the two steel terminals inside the plug?
