Default No reverse Lights

Did a search on this to no avail.....Fuse is good, lamps are good. I am getting NO POWER to the reverse lights. I also read there is a little bell that is supposed to ding....Do not have that either. 2002 PT Touring 5 speed. Is there a reverse switch that might have went bad???

Gimme some input please on this....Inspection coming up soon

Thanks

Did some searching around. there is a "Back Up Lamp Switch" that is located on the side of your transmission. It looks like this....



Unfortunately, the diagram below shows the switch (#26) but doesn't show the exact location.

Unfortunately, I'm missing a bunch of pages from my parts catalog that pinpoints the exact location of all the cruiser parts. Got the catalog on eBay and someone took a bunch of pages out before shipping. Didn't realize it till a long time afterwards.
Saw that too........Also found a thread stated "on the transmission, driver side by the radiator". Looked for about 10 minutes and it got dark on me. Guess I will try some more in the A.M. or get a Hayne's

I've updated my response to show a breakdown of the transaxle.

I thought New Jersey was tough, but reverse lights aren't checked on our inspection!

That helps ALOT!!!!!!! You see 22 and 29.... Those are near the air cleaner. So it looks like if I pull the cleaner and battery, I should be able to get to the switch.

THANKS!!!!!!

Hi. I have a base 2002. My reverse lights don't come on. I looked at the diagrams in the previous posts on this topic but I wasn't sure if it was the same from 2001-2002 and if it was an automatic or manual. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

The above photos are for the manual trans PT Cruisers.

The Chilton and Haynes manual show the left and right back-up lamps work through the Transmission Range Sensor (TRS) on the automatic PT's and through the Back-up Lamp Switch on the manual trans PT's.

We just went through changing the TRS which isn't a job for the novice.....

My 2007 automatic PT Cruiser starts in neutral, not park

Thanks for your help! My baby is a 5-speed. Now I know where to look. I had a repair guide but I misplaced it. I didn't want to bother my mechanic if it wasn't necessary.
