It might be bad wires that can be shorted out so if you know how to use a multimeter and test to see where might be the short at and replace the wires with new ones. You should have someone when you put your car in reverse to use the multimeter after you took out one of the back lights to see it the wires are coroided or rusted because of moisture. just be careful to not get shock as long you know how to use a multimeter you should be ok.

Reverse light not working what to do


If bulbs are good then you need to check the switch that powers them when you put the car into reverse.

2004 Ford Escape BACKUP LIGHTS both are completely not working. We have new bulbs and the fuse is new what could be the problem for the lights not working?


My guess would be the neutral safety switch on the transmission.
The switch also acts as a backup light switch when the shifter is in reverse.
I would check for power at the switch for the reverse light circuit.

I have a 1995 jeep wrangler and the reverse lights do not work


First thing I would do if you haven't already is replace the bulbs. You may want to have one bulb out and see if anything happens with a multimeter when it's in reverse. You most likely will need two people for this job. Most likely I would guess either a fuse, or your neutral safety switch is to blame. The fuse would most likely be the turn/bu fuse. The neutral safety switch is about a 20$ part and fairly easy to change.
Thanks,
Lee

My back up lights wont work on my 97 dodge neon, i changed the fuse and the light bulbs, now what? help please


Hi!!
What controls the Back Up Lights is the Neutral Safety Switch/Back Up Switch, located on the transmission shifter (engine compartment). Check for 12v+ coming in from the fuse box to the Neutral Safety Switch, if OK, check for 12v+ out of the wire going to the back up lights when in Reverse, if no power, replace switch, if there is power, check wiring from switch to back up lights.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Back up lights don't work and i already changed the light bulbs and the fuses are all fine


If you haven't checked for power going into the socket, or if the ground is good. I'd say you have a faulty neutral safety switch on the transmission. When you shift the gears it keeps the vehicle from starting unless it's in neutral or park. It also senses when you are in reverse and sends power to the reverse lights turning them on.

Reverse lights not working


Did you replace the back up light switch? Also try having someone watch the lights as you wiggle the shifter while in reverse position with the key on-trace the circuit from the column to the the lights with a test light sounds like a bad switch
