Not sure what transmssion you have but basically it goes from fuse on P/O wire to either the MLP switch on automatic or just a backup lamp switch on manual and leaves the switch on BK/PK wire to the bulbs. Should be easy to trace with a 12v test light.

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

Hello! Back-up lights are controlled by a relay. Under hood is the "Power Distribution Box"; Open hinged lid and locate back-up lights relay. Remove and replace. You may notice that relay is melted; They are well known for this.
You can purchase a Haynes repair manual at most auto part stores for around $15
