    I was out camping the other day and my buddy pointed out that I don't have reverse lights at all. Where are some places to check? I know little about the electrics in cars


    Thanks guys!

    If BOTH are out, it's unlikely to be the bulbs, though that would be an easy thing to check. If not the bulbs, check places that are common to both sides, i.e. Fuses, reverse light switch, etc.

    I don't have reverse lights either and it's the fuse. Transmission shop pinched a wire when installing a rebuilt a few years ago so it shorts out the fuse when putting in backup gear.
