Probably the reverse sensor located on your tranny it should be a 2 pronged connector screwed into a hole in the tranny. Goto your dealer to get it. Should be cheap/easy fix.

I see this a lot at the autoparts store I work at....

Go to your local parts store and inquire about a backup light switch. Be specific though because there is also a backup/neutral safety switch (for manual vehichles) this is not the part you want.

In most cases you will have power at the pigtail but when put in reverse the switch will not function properly and actually cut power to the lights. I offer no garanty that this will solve your problem, it is just an issue I see often and is typically the solution.

FYI: I sell 100 bulbs a day and can tell you that in a lot of cases (GM cars especially) depending on which factory your car came out of they could have used different pigtails (sockets) which require different bulbs, try one of each bulb number in the original socket and see which one fits, that one will be correct (there should also be print at the bottom of the old bulb with the correct part number on it (ignore any letters they dont mean anything).

Good luck, Hope I was of some help.

SOURCE: Volvo 240 reverse lights don't work

Hi Sir

Checked the switch and plug? here's how :)

Yes it is the reverse light switch which is hooked up to your gearbox which needs to be replaced. Also it could be the plug going into this switch is a bit dirty or thorn (due to engine temperature and time wear) which in that case means that it needs to be fixed before replacing the switch.

Checking its actually the swtich so you don't buy it for nothing :)

Just to make sure that the circuitry is ok. Go to the gearbox (if it is front wheel drive transverse engine you wont need to go underneath) check where the gearbox and linkages are close to the revers there should be a switch n plug hooked up to it. Unplug it put in a piece of wire to short circuit both wires. Then turn the ignnition key on and if your circuitry is fine the lights should go on :) This means that its the switch for sure :) I hope that this helped your problem :)

SOURCE: reverse light not working

There is a sensor that connects to the light shifter which tells the car when it is in reverse. It may need to be replaced. You can remove it and check it with an ohmmeter or voltmeter to see if it is good or not.

Why don't my 1998 s10 backup lights work when car is in reverse, stop and tail lights work fine all bulbs and fuses seem to be good ?


if the backup bulbs are good then check the neutral switch as this is where the reverse switch is, its part of the neutral switch. it may have stopped working and need replacing. you will be replacing the neutral switch. if you have power out of the switch then check for power and ground at the light socket as there could be a bad wire or connection.

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.

After switching the fuse and replacing the bulbs the reverse lights won't work.


if you changed the right fuse then you could have a bad neutral switch not working to turn on the reverse lights or power or ground is lost going to the bulbs either a bad wire or bad sockets this will have to be checked out with a test light.

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!

New rear backup bulbs but they still don't 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

Reverse lights not working on 1993 Ford Ranger


Not sure what transmssion you have but basically it goes from fuse on P/O wire to either the MLP switch on automatic or just a backup lamp switch on manual and leaves the switch on BK/PK wire to the bulbs. Should be easy to trace with a 12v test light.

S80 backup light wont work


There are only 2 things to check other than the bulbs, 1st the back up lite fuse, and the 2nd the back up light switch on the trans, if the fuse is ok replace the backup light switch.
