I recently purchased my 2002 MDX and noticed a couple quirks.
One is, when shifting into Reverse, it often does not light up on the dash and mirror doesn't tip down, but the more concerning thing is that the Backup Lights do not come on. It does shift into Reverse though. The transmission seems to work fine. It would be handy for when I'm driving in the dark, but I also noticed it's handy when trying to back up in a busy parking lot or downtown street to let people know I'm trying to back up.
Sometimes I can get it to come on when jiggling the shifter, but not always.
Is this common? Is there somewhere I can clean to make sure this works better? Something that needs to be replaced?
Thanks for your help!

Shifter cable has stretched over time. It can be adjusted, sorry but off the top of my head I can’t recall if console has to be removed. A more knowledgeable mdx’er will be along shortly.

Thanks Maguffin!
Looks like a lot of work, but easy. Maybe I'll get to it eventually when I have time. Whenever that is. lol
