Start with the easy stuff first, are the fuses good, are the bulbs and sockets good, good grounds for the lights. Then check for power to the lights when in reverse, be safe block the wheels and make sure park brake is set. If there is no power then check the park switch it could be out of adjustment or just worn out, if you haven't found the problem by now then you will have to start tracing down the reverse light circuits for a broken pathway. Good Luck
