Default Reverse Lights Not Turning On...Fuse is Fine.

Title is self-explanatory. I don't see any blown fuses anywhere, but when I shift into reverse, those little taillights just don't come on
Any ideas?

Happened in my old hyundai tiburon. Turns out there was a switch on the transmission that went bad. Dealers/service people looked at me like I had two heads, but I was told this by an experienced technician.

Is it a manual? The suby may have a similar device that just wears out over time. My 2 cents... Good news is that if it is this mystical switch the part is super cheap, probably < $20.

Yeah, its a manual, and I assumed it was a switch or something. That's what I'm hearing from local guys, too. Where's the switch?
Thanks!

On the last car it was on the transmission bell housing. Worst case you could probably ask a tech at a dealer or even at the parts counter. Best I can do as I have never touched it myself
