Backup Lights not working?

Hey guys,
Just bought myself an 87 XJ 5-speed, and shes my new baby . Problem is, the backup light doesn't turn on when I put her in reverse. Just replaced the bulbs, with no luck. Is this a common problem? Easy fix? Thanks for the help!!!

Make sure you have the "trans" fuse in the fusebox.
