Transmission wont engage backup lights
I've got a 92 ranger 4cyl 5spd. The reverse lights never worked but once during the winter. I just recently checked the wiring, bulbs and the sensor/switch on the transmission and all are perfectly good. My problem is that when I shift into reverse the lights do not come on. There is a little pin that pushes the switch on the transmission when the truck is shifted into reverse, some sort of mechanical action. no parts are missing but I dont understand what the problem is. could it just be wear and tear and the cam that pushes this pin is worn enough to be just short of contacting? or is there something wrong with my tranny. everything works.... but for some reason the switch is not being activated...
