Default Back up lights out only

My backup lights on my 01 edge dont come on. I checked the bulbs, and each sides filaments are fine, fuse 2 (back up lamps) is not blown, and the prongs are clean. I understand a good deal of electrical theory, but am new to tinkering with my trucks electrical. Any suggestions??

Well first things first is to actually replace the bulbs. I can't tell you how many people keep insisting to me that their bulbs look fine and therefore must be fine... only to finally replace them like I asked them to do 50 times and find they were bad.

If the fuse is fine, and the bulbs are fine, the problem is likely the switch on the transmission. Where and how it is replaced I don't know.

Nuke, I'm having the exact same problem. Already replaced the bulbs and nothings wrong with the fuse. Haven't figured it out yet. If I do I'll let you know...
