Question about Cars & Trucks
Reverse lights not working
Check the bulb housing is not corroded. If it is use some fine grade sandpaper to sand off the corrosion. If there is no corrosion then check your fuses. Lastly if both are ok check your wiring. I presume you have tried a new bulb

SOURCE: Reverse Lights not working
If it is a manual transmission, there is a reverse lamp switch on it, remove the wires, key on, jumper the wires (unconnected from switch) If you get lights, its the switch

Yes, the brake shoe clearance has to be set at the minimum and the brake edges should be chamfered (angled) where it contacts metal in either direction, the shoes get hung in reverse if they are loose because of the movement of the entire brake assy, and they kind of get cocked & locked until you apply the brake. Once the brakes are adjusted correctly, there is no room for them to lock.
Try & pull up a hair on the handbrake lightly when this happens & it should remove the bind by centering the shoes within the drum.
Minimum brake clearance is the cure. Sometiimes if parts aren't replaced, the fit isn't perfect due to the lip remaining which prevents intalling the part at minimum clearance.
