Neutral safety switch

I have an 89 wrangler and I need to fix its rear running lights. Where's the neutral safety switch located on the trans? And should I be trying to fix this my self?

Manual trans(ax5 atleast) does not have a NSS. The pigtail for the reverse lights is on the passenger side of the trans but that will not affect running lamps. The harness you are looking for is in the jeep on the driver side running on top of the wheel well. And down through a grommet to the tail lights.

I had a problem with my tail lights on the driver's side and it turned out to be a loose connection.

An 89 doesn't have a safety switch so if you have a manual and start it in gear it will lurch forward or backward. What doesn't work with your tail lights? Both lamps, brake lights only/directionals, reverse lights or no power at all.

If its the tail lights, first check the sockets for corrosion and the right # bulb. As said previously, the line to the lights comes from the drivers side, start there for power, if you have 12 volts there its in the taillight wiring.
If no power at the taillight, check your headlight switch and fuses.
