1995 Jeep Cherokee reverse light problem

05-15-2007, 12:17 AM
I have a Jeep 95 Charokee Laredo and my reverse lights do not work at all. I have done everything I can with the NSS and they still don't work. Would anyone have any idea what other reason there is why they don't work?

Check grounds (a lot of times they get loose or the socket gets corroded)
Check fuses
Check bulbs
Check for power (with voltmeter)

Thanks for your reply. Where are the fuses located?

Check under dashboard, to the left of the sterring column(as if in the driver's seat}. You can miss it!

Reverse lights are often affected by the NSS (neutral safety switch) Being able to actually start your rig is also a concern with a filthy NSS. It just needs in most cases to be removed and cleaned.


That should get you started. Just getting a new one costs a ton compared to cleaning it.
