    first check the fuse and then the bulbs ,then the backup light switch for adjustment or just failure . check were you loose power and go from there.

    Welcome to the forum bigshot846.

    Start by checking the 25A B/U LP fuse.
    Where the switch is depends on which trans you have.
    M/T should be with trans,
    A/T is part of the park/nuetral position switch.
    You also want to check the 15A VEH B/U fuse.

    If the fuse is blown and blows again when replaced,
    remove the TRLR B/U fuse to simplify troubleshooting.
    Theoretically that smaller 10A fuse should have blown first
    if it was a problem with trailer wires, but doesn't always.
    Wires at trailer connector can cause problems even if no trailer.

    Good luck and let us know what happens.

    check your tail light connector plate, I found this to be my problem when my backup/ signal didnt work. Sometimes they short out, check with your local parts store, their inexpensive.
