reverse lights don't work

so my reverse lights don't work, tested all wires while in reverse, not getting any juice to them at all. i've got half my interior out right now trying to follow them. rather than going that route, i thought i'd ask here for someone who already knows. where do these wires go, and which one should i really be following?

9mm Spark Plug Wires
MSD Ignition Coils
Mac Cold Air Package
Hypertech Programmed
Magnaflow Mufflers
Clear Corners
Sandblasting any aluminum parts i can get to without removing the engine
SCP 3.5" Cowl hood
and of course, PAINT!!!

This is usually the problem with any issue with turn signals, lights, brake lights, or hazard lights.

My brake lights quit; that su*ked.

There's a few threads on fixing them; you don't have to buy a new one if you are tool-friendly.

That only helps him test the signal return to the PCM. The backup lamp circuit is not in your post. For the backup lamps, the switch must make continuity between pins 2 (Pink/Orange wire) and pins 3 (Black/Pink wire).

I think you think he said the MFS, not MLPS. The backup lamps don't go through the MFS.

Ok, I copied/pasted your info into my original post!

Now it has reverse light testing, also!
