Turn it Right Side UpCheck your tail light lens, it may be upside down. The backup light on my 93 is on top.

Usually the light receptacles will only fit in on hole. Double check to see if the backup light has been put in the tail light position and reverse. If this is not the case, look to see if there is a short across on the positive side from the tail light to the back up light.
