Here is an easy test.
- Turn the ignition switch to RUN. No need to start the Jeep.
- Disconnect the connector from the Reverse Light Switch on the tranny.
- Using a short piece of wire, paperclip, etc short the two contacts together in the connector you just removed from the switch.
If the reverse lights are on then the problem is with the reverse switch in the tranny. Easy to replace. Just unscrew the old one and screw in a new one. $15 at your local Autozone.
If the reverse lights don't come on by shorting the contacts together then there is an electrical problem somewhere else. First check fuze #4 (15 amp). This is the one that provides power to the reverse light switch.
