    I have no reverse lights on my '79 Ranchero 500. Where would you begin to troubleshoot this? I've tried bulbs and had no luck. -S

    Find the wire that provides power to the lamp and test it for power at the connection.
    Check the fuse for the circuit by removing it and checking for continuity. Check the ground circuit for the reverse lamps. That should get you started.

    You can do all those with a 12 volt test light. Cheap ones are available at HF.
