Well it could be. Is it a manual? The reverse light is on top of the tranny and pretty easy to change. Not too expensive either. That is where I would start.

I am not sure. I have an auto. I just know that there is a reverse light switch that tells when you are in reverse and that is more than likely the problem. Let me see if I can find a pic.

Question EG6 Backup light switch

I have my EG6 with a manual b16A and my backup lights stop working. I check bulbs, they are all ok, i checked fuse also ok. I think problem might be in my reverse switch. I have search for old post, but could not found nothing that could help me. The pictures given are not simelar to my gearbox.
Can someone upload e pic with the correct location for my switch?
