ok i understand now the easiest thing for you to do is just get something to connect the two wires together,( like a short piece of wire ) bypassing the switch. have someone watch the reverse lights while you do this. if the lights come on then you need a switch. if not you have a bad wire or fuse/ fusible link. you can use a test light to see if you have power to the switch, one wire should have power and the other leads to the reverse lights. you can test the switch itself with a ohm meter, or continuity tester aswell if you have one. if you need more help i am here for you... dustang

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

Locate the fuse box underneath the drivers side steering wheel and remove the cover lid. Underneath the lid is a diagram of what each fuse controls. Locate the "Stop Lamp" and "Taillight" fuses and pull them out and check them with a fuse test light (avalible at your local auto parts store) Replace the burned out fuse with the same number fuse (the amp number is located on top of the fuse) and your lights will work again
