I have a 06...

I have a 06 dodge ram 1500 5.7 4x4, reverse lights do not work. I read forums & they say its the solenoid pack in trans. Others say its the neutral safety switch. If its the NSS wheres it located & if possible a part # thnx.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

My reverse lights

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am, so far I've checked fuses under hood /all good.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Mechanics are saying it could be the solenoid above trans filter & others are saying neutral safety switch. I dont want to replace parts if they aren't the problem, it does get $$

This is being caused by the ranger sensor assemby which is incorporated into the solenoid pack. There is no NSS on that transmission. Have that solenoid pack replaced. If you are sure that the fuses, bulbs, etc are okay, then I am 99% sure that replacing it will fix the problem.Chris

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
