Lightbulb Help, no reverse light

Guys, I need your help on this one...

94 D90 ST, reverse light not working. Checked the fuse, checked for corrosion in the receptacle (none) and replaced the bulb. Still no light... what could it be? Please help!

Thanks!

Help me too. No break lights.
(Since I yanked the pedal box for the master cylinder)
My red rears come on with the headlights but no "breaking juice"?

Michael/ Glen:

I had the same problem and the light then went out. Turns out that is was a known issue to LRNA. There is a kit that replaces the bulb sockets, clamp, and has a connector repair kit. Includes new rubber boots and a sealant to prevent the problem in the future. The kit does all five rear lights for 95 on . Kit goes for 145.

Worked for me.

Pull the switch and check to see if it is working manually.

Glenn the socket corrosion issue does not effect 94s

Thumbs up Thanks Ron!

Also got your message about the Disco, thanks for the reply.

Okay, so now I know it's not corrosion, not the light bulb, not the fuse and as I just learned, it could be the switch (which is on the tranny). Pardon the ignorance but, is it under the tranny tunnel? Do I access it from the inside of the truck or under? Thanks, you guys are great!

almost forgot about this one...

I just got a hold of a D90 manual but it's for a 97. I'm assuming this reverse switch is the same for the 94 and/or 97 despite the automatic/manual difference. I'll check it out and will post back!
