Chase the reverse lights wires from the bulb socket to the interior trunk connector, and see if there are any "loose" wires.

If you went to electronic repair school we should be asking you for the fixes to our electronic problems.

Lightbulb

Move the column shifter back and forth and see if there is a position where the light stay on.

Under the dash attached to the stering column on the top is the reverse light switch. It is adjustable. Put your car in reverse and slide it until your reverse lights work properly. Then, make sure they are off when in park and neutral.

I havent worked with electronics since I failed the school in 2003 but it isnt that hard if you know what the sign wave or voltage needs to read at certain components

My wagon has always done that. With the original tranny and with the one that is in it now out of a fleetwood it would always flash then turn off, then i discovered that all i have to do is push the gear selecter back up to the top of the gear and it will turn on.
