Why don't the reverse lights come on at all on a 2002 sunfire 4dr manual tranny how can it be fixed?

I can give you a general answer, and I hope it helps a little. I guess we'll assume, for the sake of arguement, that the bulbs aren't burned out. If you haven't checked or replaced them, this is a good place to start. If the bulbs are OK, the problem lies elswhere (could still be an electrical problem, though) Those lights are usually activated by a switch that is closed when the gear shift is put into the reverse slot. It could be that the switch needs adjustment or needs to be replaced. It could also be that the wires that connect to that switch are broken or disconnected. I can't tell you exactly where the switch is on your car. I suggest picking up a Chilton or Haynes manual at your local parts store. I'm pretty sure that the manual will tell you where the switch is.
