[DML] Re: Backup light help.

Manual or Automatic? 

On a manual it's screwed into the side of the transmission on the 
driver side. Common failure part, but usually they don't work at all. 
No oil will come out if you remove the switch to replace it. 

On the Automatic its part of the multiswitch (neutral start switch) 
that is on the passenger side, held in by a bracket, has a big cable 
coming out that runs up to the junction box on the back wall of the 
engine compartment. If you just pull it out of the trans you'll lose 
about 1/2 gal of ATF unless you drain it first. This one is a bigger 
problem since the cable is molded at both ends. I've never seen one 
fail. I would think that, if this switch had failed, the car would not 
start since the switch would be indicating "reverse" all the time. Of c 
ourse they could have jumped that, so then the car would start in any
