Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire
I see this a lot at the autoparts store I work at....
Go to your local parts store and inquire about a backup light switch. Be specific though because there is also a backup/neutral safety switch (for manual vehichles) this is not the part you want.
In most cases you will have power at the pigtail but when put in reverse the switch will not function properly and actually cut power to the lights. I offer no garanty that this will solve your problem, it is just an issue I see often and is typically the solution.
FYI: I sell 100 bulbs a day and can tell you that in a lot of cases (GM cars especially) depending on which factory your car came out of they could have used different pigtails (sockets) which require different bulbs, try one of each bulb number in the original socket and see which one fits, that one will be correct (there should also be print at the bottom of the old bulb with the correct part number on it (ignore any letters they dont mean anything).
Good luck, Hope I was of some help.
