Default "Reverse" lights ONLY! not working..??

Both reverse tail's dont work..

I check for any blown fuses on the fuse box inside and out.. and nothing

Then B 4 i bought new ones i check the current reverse bulbs on "both" sides of the tails by swaping them arround on the brake socket's.. and bulbs do function..

I check for power on the socket/wires and am NOT getting any power..

Now.. everything on the car seems to be working just fine turn signals,dome map lights,gauges,DLR, ECT..

EXCEPT for the reverse sockets/ligh bulbs

Sockets are really clean both.. even that wouldnt explain BOTH sides going out uuhhmmm....

Can it be my reverse switch by the tranny..??
I have a 99 camaro M6

Any1 had this problem or any good advice..?? Thanks!

Could be the reverse switch. Or a cut wire
