The backup lights on my 2002 f250 are on from the moment I turn on my ignition. I've been told to look for and replace a backup light switch, but I can't locate it. Can you please help?

The backup light switch is on the driver's side of the transmission where the shift linkage attaches. It is incorporated with the neutral/park safety switch. Hope this helps.

DIGITAL TRANSMISSION RANGE (TR) SENSOR Special Tool(s) Fig. 303: Identifying Special Tool Courtesy of FORD MOTOR CO. Removal 1. The customer needs to be notified that they may experience slightly different upshifts (either soft or firm) and that this is a temporary condition and will eventually return to normal operating condition. Disconnect the battery ground cable. For additional information, refer to BATTERY, MOUNTING AND CABLES . 2. Raise the vehicle on a hoist. 3. Disconnect the connector.

Remove the digital transmission range (TR) sensor. Fig. 306: Removing Digital Transmission Range (TR) Sensor NOTE: If the vehicle is equipped with a power take-off unit, all or part of the PTO unit may need to be removed. NOTE: All gasoline vehicles will have new adaptive shift strategies. Whenever the vehicle's battery has been disconnected for any type of service or repair, the strategy parameters that are stored in the keep alive memory (KAM) will be lost. The strategy will start to relearn once the battery is reconnected and the vehicle is driven. This is a temporary condition and will return to normal operating condition once the powertrain control module (PCM) relearns all the parameters from the driving conditions. There is no set time frame for this process. If a concern is present during downshifts or converter clutch apply, it is not the fault of the shift strategy and will require diagnosis as outlined in the workshop manual.Courtesy of FORD MOTOR CO. Installation 1. Install the digital transmission range (TR) sensor. 1. Install digital transmission range (TR) sensor. 2. Loosely install the bolts.
