    On the fuses,....One is for Vehicle Back-Up Lamps.........It is Labeled....VEH / BU
    The 2nd one is Back-Up Trailer Wiring....It is Labeled.....TRL / BU

    The Vehicle Backup light fuse...would be the one to look at.
    You did not mention,if you have checked the Back-Up Lamps[Lights] to see if they are burned out??

    I checked the back up light bulbs and they were not blown also i did check out the fuses and they looked good. I just don't know what to do next? Is there a switch somewhere?

    If you have a simple multi-meter you can check the sockets themselves for power and check their continuity to ground. Being that it is a 2002 I really don't think that is the case and being that they are both inop. I would double check that fuse. It might look ok but throw a known good one in it to be sure.

    Hey guys i found out that it was the neutral safety switch on the transmission that was bad, i checked all the wire and then i pulled out my manual and looked at the schmatic and then bypassed the switch with the truck key in the on position. Like magic my back up lights came on at least i know whats wrong now and i'll get it fixed. Thanks guys for the help.
