reverse lights not turning on ....

Guys,

My reverse lights aren't turning on when I put my car in reverse. I just replaced both bulbs, and used some MAF cleaner on the actual reverse switch by the front of the transmission....

no luck.

any advice ?

Do you have power at the switch by the trans? Check the fuse?
