Default Reverse lights on while going forward.

Hello, I have a 2003 non-turbo manual transmission. At times the reverse lights will come on while moving forward. I'm curious if this is a situation that has come up before, and what could possibly be the cause.

Welcome to the forum. When you have a minute, go to the new members, introduce yourself and tell us more about your Cruiser.

As far as the back up lights, it sounds like the switch is sticking. I don't know if it is mounted to the shifter or in the trans. Someone will be along shortly with more info.

reverse light switch is probably bad, it's located on the transmission. It is accessible from the engine bay, located kinda below the battery.
