Expert:  Greg replied 3 years ago.
Hi Eric .

Have you checked and tested the reverse switch on the transmission .

Check first the connection then the wiring harness then Ohm the switch in "N" then when in "R"
On the connection plug you should have batt power on the one wire with ignition on .
And ground on the other wire .

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Yes we are

Expert:  Greg replied 3 years ago.
Hi Eric .

Good then the fuse is okay now put a jumper wire between the two wires and check and see if the light comes on .

If they do not work then you will have to trace the wiring toi the light bulkb fixture .

If they do then remove the sensor connect the wiring and with your finger press in the pluger does the light come on if no bad sensor if yes ,internal transmission problem .

will a voltage meter work?

Expert:  Greg replied 3 years ago.
Hi Eric .

Just use a jump wire first and see if the light comes on ,ignition switch has to be in the ON position .

Volt meter will work should show battery voltage .
