2004 Saturn Ion - No Reverse lights

I have a 2004 ion and the reverse lights have stopped working. I have checked the bulb and the fuses and all seem fine. Any suggestions on what I should check next?

The problem is most likely on the transmission range selector switch, this is on th top of the transmission and has a multi-wire connector going to it, a shaft goes through it and the trans shift cable is connected there.

How do you change a brake or 'taillamp' bulb on a 2006 Saturn Ion? The manual is not clear on how to do it. Much appreciated!

Pop your trunk, and you'll see two Torx screws on the side of the tail light assembly. Use your T-15 screwdriver on these.

The tail light assembly should easily slide out at this point. You'll see four connectors: a wiring harness, reverse light, turn signal, and brake light. Disconnect the proper connector, and you'll see the burned-out bulb. Give it a yank, and it will pop right out.

2004 Saturn Ion blinker problem!

Usually when the turnsignal blinks rapid this is a indicator that the turn signal bulbs is blown, you will need to check both the front and rear signal to see which is not working, and then change the blown bulb or bulbs.
