|Harris4627||If you are talking about the reverse sensor/switch, on a manual tranny it is drivers side at the back of the transmission at about 11 o'clock. Has 3 wires coming out of it. Not sure on an automatic...|

|Harris4627||Well here's an update... I fixed the fast flash (piece of cake) but still a no go on the reverse lights. I am at a complete loss here. I've replaced the sensor on the tranny... Ran all new wires, relays, and a secondary switch, and NADA! What else is there to do? Im goin crazy ova hea!!!|

|Schuttr||Just had my plow re- wired. Reputable garage and looks clean and tidy, but reverse lights keep blowing bulbs not fuses. Could it be this " sensor?" How do I check?|

Just use a razor blade & be careful doing this. Takes 5-10 minutes, start to finish & fixes the fast flash.

You should not wire high power aux light into the reverse circuit. Follow this thread http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/auxi...ed-234063.html Note you can wire in directly LED (white) lightsfor the reverse which is what I did.
The fast flash has nothing to do with the reverse. That's what happens when you put LEDs with a not led flasher relay. You can use a EP-26 LED flasher from any parts store or if you have an older TJ you can modify your existing flasher LED Tail Light Turn Signal Modification

Thanks for all of the responses guys! It is a manual tranny, so i also thought it could be the reverse sensor... I have not busted out the test light yet, was busy all day yesterday, so that will be my first thing to do this evening. Also,

|Srv748wg||On a previous vehicle I wired up lights to a toggle switch on the dash, that way I had access to lights whenever I needed them for Tow hook ups or anything else done at night. Just had to remember to turn them on/off when backing for reverse lights. Also hooked up a push button start in the cigarette lighter spot. I like doing little things like that to make my vehicles just a little different.|

|Hiatus83||there is a back up light switch sensor on the side or your tranny.. at least if this i a manual vehicle.... if its automatic your nuetral safety switch needs to be repaired or replaceds... premature post.. you need to replace the relay for your flashes for led bulbs... that should fix it...|

Do you have a voltmeter or test light? You need to check the wire for 12v when in reverse (you are testing with key on right??)
Also, what size/type lights did you buy? You might be pulling too much current.

No Reverse Lights!
So I did the popular LED tail light conversion, and I like many others, lost my reverse lights. I ran down to the local 4WP and bought some procomp aux lights to mount on my bumper... I wired them into my reverse wire (purple with black tracer), grounded them well, and nothing happened. I have checked fuses, connections, and ran straight power to the light to make sure they actually worked, (and they did). But no shine when in reverse . What else could it be???
