back up lights not working

I did have a bad bulb. changed it and still nothing. Put a meter on the contacts and nothing. All of the other lights in the rear work fine.

Before I dig into it are there any know pinch points or connecters that are prone to corosion that I should start at?

Check the fuse. Should be #2 10 amp (check your owners manual). If its ok then check the reverse switch on tranny.

Solution: Engage the transmission into the reverse gear.

Bulb sockets corroded
Large connector below driver seat - water / pin corrosion
DTR sensor (automatic) or reverse light switch (manual)
The rest is just wire (BK/PK), mostly along the DS frame rail and across under the tailgate
