There is not one. Since 1960, Chrysler's neutral safety switch/back-up light switch was an uncommonly simple and reliable affair screwed into the left rear corner of the transmission. That was too simple. Now it has been replaced by a "transmission range sensor" on the transmission's shift lever. It is an input sensor for the engine computer. That computer tells the Integrated power module when to turn on the back-up lights, and somehow involving two computers in turning on a pair of light bulbs is an improvement in technology.

You need to start a new question specific to your vehicle, and please be sure to list the engine size and mileage. We look at the mileage to figure out the best suspects to a problem, and we need the engine size to find the right wiring diagrams.

Unlike other sites where anyone can chime in, here this becomes a private conversation between you and one or two experts who will stick with you until the problem is solved. When you piggyback on someone else's question, it shows up on our list of questions that have already received a reply. As such, the other experts don't interfere to confuse the story, so they won't see your addition or have a chance to reply. That won't get you the help you need. I'm a Chrysler expert, but not a GM expert. We have some really good GM people here, but they haven't seen your post.

Others, like you, look through these posts for reference, but they will be looking for other Cadillac posts. Your new question and the replies can help some of those people in the future. It's also really helpful if you include what problem you're trying to solve. About 80 percent of the time we come to find out the part someone is looking for can be ruled out by analyzing the symptoms and observations. That might save you a lot of wasted time and parts.
