back up lights dont work

I have an 03 jeep wrangler. Just bought it 3 weeks ago. I just noticed i have no back up lights. Bulbs look good and fuses look good any advice. I love the heck out of my first jeep.

Your backup light switch has failed.

It may just be out of adjustment, have someone stand behind you when you go to reverse, and watch your lights. see if the lights come on-and go off b4 you get into reverse. if so, then the switch just needs to be cleaned/adjusted. even if they don't come on at all, try the clean/adjustment first before replacing it, there's plenty of posts on here and on the web showing how to do it. Unless you've just got $$ to burn, then have somone replace it.

my switch was shot too, i just unscrewed it and put a new one on. It's on the transmission on the drivers side. Follow the wires from the rear lights to the switch. It works fine now and didn't cost anything. Don't pay someone to do it either, it's way too simple
