2002 VUE 2.2L
Default Reverse light switch?

Does anyone know if the reverse lights in the VUE are somehow BCM triggered, or are they activated by a physical switch on the transmission?

For about the past 2 or 3 months, I have noticed a ~2 second delay in the lights coming on after I shift into R, and then the lights would come on. Now, they are not coming on at all (and consequently my ISRV mirror won't un-dim, which is irritating).

My service manual set is at home in Ohio, so I can't dig it up and see. If it is a simple fix like a bad switch, I am thinking I might pop out and try to get one today. Now that I have the smart back, there are a few small projects I need to take care of with the VUE.

OVB - See attached B/U light circuit for 02 Vue which indicates old fashioned switches are used for either manual or auto trans.

You'll note the 2002 diagram does not have the IRVM connection. They might have put on internal lighting schematics and I'll try to verify.

I noted the IRVM connection is depicted on the 04 Vue diagram ... which also appears to depict schemes for three different trans to power B/U lights (5AT, MT & AT - do you suppose the latter is the CVT?).

I suppose they are referring to the VTi there. The 4A didn't come out until 2005 IIRC.

Hey, OVB. Long time...

Just happened to see your post here. Did you get the reverse light switch replaced? I had to do mine a couple years ago after it developed the same symptoms. Fortunately it's a piece of cake.

Hey there!

No, I have not yet... haven't had much time to devote to it. I'm still planning on it though... it is a bit annoying at night and backing out of parking spaces.

I know what you mean, it sucks not having those lights. As I recall the switch threads into the back of the tranny and has a connector on the end for the sensor wire. It was really quick and easy to replace.
