reverse light switch
« on: February 02, 2014, 08:24:20 PM »
I know that the reverse light switch is located on he steering column on 69 z 28's.  My question is when I use the reverse lock mech. and the car is in reverse with the shifter all the way forward my reverse lights do not work.  If I back off on the shifter lever about half inch the reverse lights go on.  Is there an adjustment on the switch to activate the reverse lights when the shifter is all the way forward?

Thanks for any help with this

Yes, the switch is adjustable as it sets on top of the column.
Loosen the two screws securing it to the column, place in reverse, and adjust for light reflection on the garage door or back wall.
Repeat in/out of reverse to verify lights work and adjust accordingly.
