First check all your fuses and see if 1 of the fuses are blown, you can shorten the process of checking every single fuse by looking at the label and seeing which 1 runs to your tail lights and reverse lights.
If that doesn't fix it you could check the bulbs themselves and see if they are burnt out or if 1 of the wires has shorted out near the tail lights.
If those are not the problems the next step would be to lift up The rubber shroud around your gear shift, if you look to the back right side of the white plastic inside that console you will be able to see where the gear shift moves into reverse, just below that point there should be 1 or 2 wires that have plastic connectors on the ends of them check to make sure that the wire/wires are plugged in.
If none of these work check your body control module for BCM and make sure that all plugs are secured in there tightly.
If all those options fail I suggest taking it to the dealer.

    I had already checked fuses and bulbs (probably should have said that). As it turns out, the wire that connects under the hood to have those lights come on was disconnected. Looks like a squirel was having a good time under my hood judging by the acorns he left behind. So I had a co-worker help me by reconnecting the wire (under my battery and under the filter). All set now. Thanks for you advice though.

Reverse lights not working on 1990 Chevy 2500 , bulbs are okay, where is the fuse located / would it be the switch and if so where could I find it. Also dome light doesn't work

The problem is not the fuse most likely but the reverse light switch on the transmission. If it is an automatic the reverse light switch is part of the large switch that sits under the cable that shifts the transmission gears you select. If it is a manual it is located on the side of the case of the tranny. The interior lights are on a different fuse, do they come on at the head light dome light switch? Has the bulb been checked. I do not have the owner's manual on file due to the age of the truck, sorry.

Wher to locate a neutral safety swich on a toyota corolla automatic 1991model.

There is a neutral safety switch on cars with automatic transmissions which operates the reverse lights, and a reverse switch on manual transmission models.
You need to check voltage output on which version you have.

I have a 2000 ford taurus and i have no reverse lights.I changed the bulbs and checked the fuse.The brake lights and tail lights high mount brake light does not work.

The reverse lights work off the manual lever position switch..When you open the hood look on the driver side right over the transmission,..Youll see where the shifter linkage hook up..Right on the linkage on the transmission is a sensor which moves when you select different gear..

I have replaced reverse light bulb, however new bulb will not work. I have checked the bulb, the fuses and the wiring, any ideas why can't get it work. Also indicator on dash still present.

The reverse light switch is a mechanical device used to control operation of the vehicle reverse lights. The switch is designed to complete the circuit when reverse gear is selected allowing reverse light operation (manual transmission only).

Are the back up (reverse lights) in series---where if one bulb is out neither side works---on a jeep cherokee?

no, they are 12 volt bulbs and require parallel wiring. If you have a manual transmission, check the reverse light switch on the transmission for continuity with the transmission in reverse. If you have an automatic, the reverse switch is integrated into the transmission range switch at the shift cable attach point. In either case, the wires at the switch are yellow/dark green stripe and brown/light green stripe.

My 1992 Chevy 1500 truck revers lights stopped working. The fuse is fine and all other lights work.

If the fuse is good and the reverse lights are good, I would suspect your problem will be the reverse light switch itself. I believe yours is located on the side of the transmission where your linkage connects, if you have an automatic transmission.
If you have a manual transmission , you'll probably have to contact the local automotive parts store and ask them to tell you where it's located.
