I have the same problem with my scenic. A friend who is a mechanic said he thinks there is a switch on the gear linkage under the car that is closed when selecting reverse. just like a switch covered in rubber (like the switch that turns your interior lights on when you open your door)
I haven't had time to look yet so let me know if this is the case please!

I think you are on the right track, could be a switch/transducer.

05 Renault Grand Scenic. No dipped headlights. Bulbs and fuses OK

Are u sure that the bulbs are OK? I had no dipped lights on mine, & thought it must be a fuse or another electrical fault. It turned out, both bulbs had gone. I think this often happens when one side goes, the other soon follows.

No reverse lights on renault scenic 1.4 2004

On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced
