Question 2007 Yaris Hatchback with no back up lights.

I have checked the bulbs, replaced the bulbs, checked the fuse and replaced the fuse and I still have no back up lights.

I'm am now doing the only thing left that I can do and thats stand at the back of my car, stare at the lights and scratch my head and wonder why my back up lights are not working.

Has anyone else had this problem (not the itchy head problem, the back up light problem?)

I would just back into any parking spots, that way you can just pull out without needing to reverse out - problem solved.

You replaced the fuse and bulbs, so that takes care of those legs, in this process of elimination. I would check the wiring, as much/far as you can from where it connects. It's affecting both, so find out where both/all back up lights "go to" wiring-wise. Hopefully the fault would be found from that point to the engine compartment.Maybe a relay or something, I'm not sure. From the echo repair manual--I know you have a yaris--but same troubleshooting steps would apply check the following:
1. GAUGE Fuse
2. Ignition Switch
3. Wire Harness
4. Bulb

* Therefore, see if there is another fuse to check that might be the culprit as well as the wiring. And, I guess the ignition switch. Hope that helps.

Might help you resolve if it's your reverse switch. Any updates?

I haven't had the time to take it in, I've poked and prodded everything to do with
the back up lights and nothing to be found so it has to be at the tranny.

Don't take it in. They will charge you $$ for a 20 minute job. The reverse switch should be located near the top of the transaxle/tranny kinda right under the battery tray. It might be snugged in with a plate over it, just remove and unfasten the switch, put new one in, done. Save the $$ you saved to go out to dinner with with wife/kids or buy a new bong (I think I would buy a new bong). This is maybe 1-2 degrees harder--difficulty wise--than changing your own oil--if you are retired/disabled,etc, yeah ok--have someone else do it for you--but I still wouldn't take it to a shop, but have someone who is even mildly competent to put in in (neighbor car kid, car relative, etc).

I've been getting more into cars (I'm still in denial as I don't consider myself a car person), ever since around 10 years ago, and I already have made up my mind that I will never bring a car to a shop unless it truly is out of my skill level--and even then before getting to that point, I would have poked and prodded the issue before getting to that point--it's worth it. You get to know your vehicles more, and the pride that goes along with it. Also, scores of beautiful half naked women will randomly cling on your arm asking for money.

Thumbs up

this might be a little late seeing this is now 2019 but your problem lays right in the gear shifter (inside vehicle) underneath it there is a ball bearing there and it's not making contact have a look and slowly place it in reverse and hold it a few different ways and they will work perfect your shifter isn't grabbing it to make them stay on in reverse. and try to also visit the shifter cable running to the front of the tranny and make sure this is all in tact had this myself and the cable had busted off nd replaced it sometimes this is just off a touch and will cause reverse lights to not operate.
hope this helps somebody in 2019

Yup i never got the chance to fix the problem, a guy in a stolen truck ran a stop sign and I T-boned him,
good news is I have an Orange RS out the deal for half the money insurance paid me for my black one.
