Arrow 1999 Suburban Backup / Reverse Lights Not Working


When I shift into reverse, the corresponding lights do not turn on. Thinking maybe they were burned out, I replaced them but still no dice.

I checked the driver side dashboard fuse panel as well, all fuses are fine. Turn signals, brake lights, etc all work's just the backup lights.

My next guess is a bad wire or circuit board, but I'm not sure where to look.

I'm a novice, but if any experienced people out there tell me where to look I can probably take care of it as I'm pretty good with my hands.

Thanks in advance!

Check the backup lamp switch on the trans. They cost about $5
