Hello!
My 98 Jeep Gr Cherokee Ltd has a problem with reverse lights. The bulbs are ok. When I shift into reverse the lights do not come on. I had a mechanic look at it ( we live in Venezuela) and he suggested it was the "valvula de pare" - no idea what part that refers to in English. Any idea what part I should be looking for?
Thanks
Chantal

Check to see if the neutral safety switch is sending power and check fuss if any it's on the trans

Thanks HMAC300, the fuses are fine.

I have been googling the "valvula de Pare" and it comes up as IAC (Idle air control) valve.

I will look at the neutral safety switch - is this the same part as the IAC sensor valve/solenoid? I attached a picture.

No they aren't the same iac controls idle of engine and neutral switch lets you start car in park/neutral and controls back up lights
