I'm sure this has been asked before, but I can't some up with an answer.
I have the automatic tranny. I have power at the backup light bulbs - both wires (which says the ground is bothered), so I was wanting to check the backup switch, thinking it provides the completion of the circuit by grounding. Bulbs and fuses are all good.
I can come up with a backup switch from aftermarket parts, but it is apparently for a manual transmission. The parts store tells me there is no distinction between manual and automatic trannies by their reference material. On my transmission it looks like there are two electrical components held in place by nylon flanges with retainer bolts - about 10 mm. One of those is on the drivers side at the rear of the tranny and the other on top of the transmission, also near the rear.
My question is - where is the switch located on the automatic transmission and does it complete the circuit for the lights by grounding?
As always, appreciate the help.
