Both Reverse Lights out -_-
Do you think this is a shocking coincidence that the bulbs went out together or does this sound more like a blown fuse? Id like to think its a blown fuse lol.

If you have a multimeter or test light,check to see if power is getting to either back-up bulb.

Multimeters can be had for as little as $10 and are a great tool to keep around for the a DIY'er. The $10 one obviously doesn't have all the bells and whistles or the dead-nuts accuracy of the exspensive ones but will still do the trick to detect power and display voltage.

Re: Both Reverse Lights out -_-
Do I just take out the tail lights and unscrew the bulbs and measure it that way?

The bulb just unplugs and then stick the probes into each connector of the open socket. Turn the key to run but don't start the engine,put her in reverse and check for voltage. Leave the bulb in the other socket!!!
