Reverse lights

Don't know if any of you have the same issue, but is there an adjustment in the shifter in regards to the reverse lights? Intermittently they don't work, but if I creep the shifter towards neutral they come on, trans linkage maybe?

Please fill in your Jeep profile info. Helps others help you.
It displays...
<--- over there.

No adjustment just for REV lights. Shift cable may be slightly out of adjustment.

With engine off, press and release the button on the shifter handle while cycling through the gears. Determine if the shifter detent engages in the same position as the tranny detent.

Once the tranny is in a gear, while releasing the button, if the shifter tries to move forward/backward, then the shift cable needs adjusting.

If this checks good, then might have a bad Neutral Safety Switch on the tranny.

So, this test checked out good. Probably look into a neutral safety switch some time soon. Thanks again for the advice.

the re series transmission nss is pretty cheap. just a plunger switch. the aw4 and 545rfe switches are insane.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

I noticed that I'm getting some leakage around the switch area as well... Could it maybe just need a good cleaning/snugging down?

This is true. I was thinking of the one for my old XJ.
