    1999 Suburban Backup / Reverse Lights Not Working


    When I shift into reverse, the corresponding lights do not turn on. Thinking maybe they were burned out, I replaced them but still no dice.

    I checked the driver side dashboard fuse panel as well, all fuses are fine. Turn signals, brake lights, etc all work's just the backup lights.

    My next guess is a bad wire or circuit board, but I'm not sure where to look.

    I'm a novice, but if any experienced people out there tell me where to look I can probably take care of it as I'm pretty good with my hands.

    Thanks in advance!

    It is unlikely that both bulbs would be bad but worth checking them. Not an expert but if I had to guess I would say that the neutral safety switch is bad. I would think (not 100% sure) that the NSS is at the bottom of the steering column near the floorboards.
    Hopefully some of the experts will give an opinion soon.
