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

How do I fix a reverse light that don't work after changing bulb

check fuses first? right, (endless answer to electrics,)
ok , no transmission stated.
so how'd we guess that,?
ok, both trans have a Reverse switch, in the casing of M/T
or the A/T the side switch.(aka, PRNDL switch)
in both cases. of 12vdc arrives there. and if it dont exit there.
then the switch is bad. (in reverse) (use a voltmeter and save time?)

if you see like 6v there, it might be the reverse wiring is shorted to the body or tailer hitch wire hack jobs, common

Reverse lights

the car comes with 2 transmission.
a/t and m't (auto or stick)
the a/t uses an expensive PRNDL switch (aka. neutral switch)
the m/t uses reverse switch.

both are located on the transmission.
the m/t has 2 wires)
the A./t about 6. (not 2)
with those 2 facts, you can find it, counting wires.

next time post trans type, so we dont have to guess.

I have a 2000 chevy silverado with a maual trans. The reverse lights won't come on. All other lights work, I've switched the bulbs out and checked the fuses and they are all fine.

I would take the bulbs out and put the trans in reverse, the check for voltage with a test light or multimeter. If no voltage is present then it's more likely a problem with the reverse switch which is located on the trans.

When i put my truck into reverse my lights dont work however if i pull my shifter back inbetween reverse and neutral if i get this one spot they come on

There is usually a switch mounted on the transmission. Perhaps it has gotten loose or something is worn or broken. Your gear selection goes park, reverse, neutral and drive. Since the switch is not coming on from park to reverse but it kinda does if you go past reverse (neutral) then it sounds like the switch has moved from its original place. That's why I think it is loose. Good Luck!

No Backup lights when in Reverse

The part you are referring to is the range selector switch, it is on the side of the trans where the gear selector arm comes out of the trans, it moves with the shaft the arm is attached to and tells the system what gear you are in as well as turning on the backup lights when reverse is selected. You don't say what engine but I show that if you have a V8 or V6 the switch is $225.00

AWD; with 4 Speed A.T.
