    Possibly a bad ground where the reverse switch goes?

    Kind of what I was thinking, too.

    You did say all of your fuses were good, right? I read another thread where a member had a backup light switch (don't know the technical name for it) go bad, causing his reverse lights to not work.

    All the fuses are good the bulbs look good. I installed a switch on the inside of the car today on the gear shift its self not outside on the transmission. Im done with it all i do is get B****ed out by my wife for trying to work on it so she can pay thru the nose for a mechanic at the chevy house.

    Thanks for all the help after chev house looking at bulbs me looking at bulbs filament was intact not blacking on bulbs, fufes looked good replaced all the switches i have, it turned out to be the bulbs I have never seen bulbs in 45 years with the filament intact not look blown. Oh well learned the hard way.

    BTW i put bulbs in there from other light sockets on back and those didnt work guess why? I had it on ramps freaking trying to get out of the heat and i didnt do was put it in reverse to check the lights while on ramps cause i hand no rear wheel chaulks i AM STUPID BEAT ME IN THE HEAD WITH A STICK...................... I wish the car would have ran me down.

    Glad to see you got everything worked out. I have seen bulbs like you described. I remove them and pluck them to see if the filament vibrates. If the filament vibrates, then the bulb is bad.

    Thanks for the compliment! I broke my trend of buying black cars when I bought this car back in January.
