    My reverse lights have been intermittent for a while now. If I jiggle the shifter sometimes they’ll flicker on. Today I pulled the taillight and tested for voltage at the bulb at got 0V. I’m assuming there’s an issue with the switch or wiring. Does anybody know where the switch that actuates the reverse lights is?

    Yeah, my reverse lights hadn't been working for a couple of years, and i replaced the switch, it's really easy.
