Did you check the bulbs? If that isn't it maybe it's the switch. The reverse light switch is located on the top of the left end (driver's side) of the transaxel. Unplug the electrical connector from the switch and remove the switch with a socket DO NOT use an open end wrench. Installation is the reverse. Tighten the switch to 24 Ft. Lbs.

Thank you very much Tom. I'm sure that the bulbs are working cause it lights up when I turn on the park light, is that normal?

You mean the white reverse light bulbs come on when you put on the parking lights? No, this is not normal, they should only light when in reverse. So I'd say you have a wiring issue, I'm not sure where to start. Best to have someone look at it.
