Question about 1990 Dodge Omni

1 Answer

I have a 1990 Dodge Omni with an automatic transmission. It's reverse lights won't work. When I first realized this problem, I replaced the reverse light switch that plugs into the transmission. The result was the left reverse light worked but not the right. I tried replacing the bulb on the right one, but that didn't change anything. I took it to a mechanic who said the socket for the right light had rusted. To fix the problem he did some half-assed wire splicing. When I picked the car up, both lights were working. Shortly thereafter, they both stopped working. So I undid the mechanic's splicing and replaced the rusty socket with a new one. Still, no lights. Could the mechanic's re-wiring have caused a fuse to blow or the switch to go bad? If the fuse, do you know which one? The fuse application chart in my Haynes manual apparently doesn't offer any help with the 1990 Omni.

There is no fuse for this. And yes the mechanic could have trashed the switch on the transmission.

1990 Dodge Omni. Runs but shuts down


Check to see that you have good(bright orange) spark to the spark plugs the next time it dies... if not odds are its the coil. If spark is good check fuel pressure, since the pump was replaced if pressure is bad the fuel pressure regulator would be in question.
