How to remove commutatuer switch on 2003 dodge van

I think he is referring to the ignition switch. I think Switch Translates to French as commutator or interrupter. After removing the steering column covers, You will need toremove the lock cylinder. Once that is out of the way you will need to unplug the clock spring connector for the airbag. Than if you have tilt wheel you will need to remove the tilt lever. Non tilt wheel will have a bracket that needs to be removed. You will than be able to access the screws that hold the ignition switch in place.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

My revirse lights do not work

Really dont need to know color of wire for this system is simple. On the switch (left rear corner on transmission) there are three wires. one wire is power, one allows it to start in park or neutral and the other is for the reverse lights. If I remember correctly the two outer terminals operate the reverse lights. Find the power lead and jump to each of the other two to determine which is for the reverse lights. Likely you will find that the switch is bad and there is no wiring problem. Make sure that reverse lights have good grounds as well.
