Since you already replaced the bulbs and fuse, it's probably a bad switch. Most Hyundai's they are on the top of the transmission

Does location matter whether standard or automatic? Mine is standard

The connection switch is fitted to the gearbox. it is the only switch on the gearbox with two wires coming out of it. I pulled up the part and it looks just like that one

When I say 'two wires' those are the ones that plug in to that switch

I appreciate the help. I have spent 2 hours online looking. :-(. I would figure gear box is under car? Got to do oil change so will look then. Never had to look for gear box

if it aint the switch it could be the wiring itself.

Thanks Rebekah! It was the back up light switch. I replaced it and they work. Not a cheap part though.
