Since I don't know much technical stuff about our cars I'll jump in and use the easiest response...

Change the bulbs? [:p]
2nd easiest...go to the dealer

Seriously, it could be the switch that activates the lights when placed into reverse OR
could be a bad fuse?
I checked the bulbs and they are fine if the bulbs were bad wouldn't a light show up on the dash. I wondering abouth the switch under the shift gear does anyone know how hard it is to replace it thanks
