SOURCE: No reversing lights
check a couple of things clean the base of your globes and sockets. your switch next to the shifter could be slightly out of adjustment check this by going through the gears to see if they light up that way. failing that check ur switch in the gearbox could be faulty. hope this helps.

I think checking the transmission fluid level, and perhaps a fluid change with a filter change would be first step.
However, with only 68K miles on your vehicle, seems like too low of miles for the fluid & filter to be in that bad of shape unless you are driving in extreme dusty conditions, pulling a trailer, or other harsh conditions.

Testimonial: "great advice and quick reponse"
Automatic transmissions, have brake and clutch bands, these gradually wear. The residue of this wear is picked up by the filter. from time to time, it will require servicing, to clean the filter and adjust the brake and clutch bands and change the fluid at the same time.
I had the torque converter drilled, drain, welded, to get all the fluid out and replaced with synthetic fluid, which handles much higher temperature, and according to a transmission specialist, will last the life of the vehicle. When fluid has changed from red to brown , it is no longer performing to its specification, and will eventually cause unnecessary wear to the transmission. I would suggest to get the transmission serviced by a transmission specialist, rather than a general mechanic, if possible. I have seen owners told a transmission had to be replaced for $1800 (at the brand authorised service agent), when the specialist new it was a common fault for that model and would cost about $70 to fix.
