I have a similar issue with my 1992 6Cyl 4WD pickup where the reverse lights have stopped working. I haven't solved it yet; However, I did find a place to start.'t-work-118636/#post50557464

Do your backup lights don't work?If so check this out.

My backup lights have not worked since god nows when..

so today I finally drag myself under the truck and look around for the reverse switch thing (2 prong switch that sticks out from the tranny)

on mine it was on the passenger side, very easily to see.

At first I could see that the plug was only halfway on, so I think "oh yeah, easy fix" so I plug it all the way in, put my key to the "on" possison and put her in reverse, go to the back of the truck.. nothing.

So okay, I crawl back under the truck and kinda think for a second.

I then realize that the switch can go on upside down and you cant tell the difference.

So I flip the wire around and plug it back in and what do I see when I go to the back end of the truck?

My reverse lights work!!

So if anyone has has tranny work and since then the reverse lights don't work, try this, its pretty easy to mess up the switch since it plugs in perfectly right side up or upside down, so the shop might have plugged it in upside down

Why do the reverse lights not work on a 1997 Toyota Tercel?

There is a switch called the reverse backup light switch attached to the shifter. When you move the shifter into reverse, the switch is closed and current goes back to the reverse lights. The switch is located on both auto and manual trans. After making sure your bulbs are good, that is where I would look. And make sure your fuses are not blown as well in your fuse block. There usually is not just a circuit dedicated to reverse lights only but there is always something a manufacturer will do some years just to be different.

There is a backup switch in the gearbox. When you shift into reverse, the gear box switch contacts the switch and lights the white reverse lights.
