Ok, better check the fuses!!!! Manual trans has it's own separate switch, btw. Very unusual for that part of the neutral safety switch on an auto trans to fail but possible.

Make sure the tail light module is working, at the back of the truck near the tailgate.

What is a module
of G. T. Service Center on February 03, 2014
There is 2 fuses to the back up lights. At the rear underneath of the bed is a square box looking module with several plugs attached to it, that is the module that all the rear and trailer lights operate from.

Tail lights and brake lights work but not reverse
of G. T. Service Center on February 03, 2014
No kidding, I can read. Did you check both fuses, and the backup lights are still wired through that module, Oh and by the way, they are in the tail light assy, ie' tail light module.

I'm not trying to be rude or smart I checked the one fuse under hood where is the other one located

No I made the hot leg on the 10 amp b/u fuse hot and the reverse lights worked

Whatever works right. Good luck

My Silverado 2003 no backup lights. The trailer light connector with backup light works, center post. I ran a wire from it to backup light wire (lite green) on left side tail. Fixed it!!!!
