depending on vehicle type, there should be a switch box on the transmission where the shift lever/cable attatches which has probably gone bad. the other type of reverse switch is located on your shifter. check these, assuming all fuses have been checked and are ok.

How do you fix the reverse lights on a Chevrolet Cavalier when all other lights work but when you shift it in reverse you get no reverse lights?

your car uses the same fuse for the turn signals and the back up lamps, so if your turn signals work its not the fuse. You should check the bulbs first as this is the easiest fix. If the bulbs are good, then it is the back up light switch in the transmission. The part will cost you about $16 if it is a manual or about $35 if it is automatic. The part is very simple to change. It can be reached from the driver side wheel well when the wheels are turned all the way to the right. When you look in between the wheel and the fender, you will see it above the trans-axle.

I suspect either a faulty ground circuit, or a much easier fix, faulty bulb/bulbs. You might be surprised the havoc a grounded out bulb will cause an electrical system.
