Well my reverse lights stopped working and I checked the bulbs and all seems fine there. So someone told me to check my fuses before I go out and buy the stuff for the reverse switch but I dint know which fuse it would be

In the under hood fuse box it should be labeled B/U LP its a 10 amp fuse. If the fuse is good then look bellow the master cylinder you will see the back up light switch. Unplug the back up light switch then turn the ignition switch to the on position then jump the two terminals on the back up light connector together. If the back up lights work you have a bad back up light switch. Most likely its a bad switch I have replaced a lot of them. If the fuse was blown the low coolant light on the dash stays on. Let me know what you find?

Also I was wondering what would make my service engine light come on and shut back off every couple of days

Look behind the battery you will see a tank with a cap and some steel lines coming off it that is the master cylinder.

The back up switch were talking about?That looks like a big nut with a connector with two wires going to it. Its facing straight up.

Your welcome glad to hear it was what I thought it was. As for the check engine light I need you to get the computer scanned for codes and let me know the exact code numbers you have not code descriptions?Thats are starting point for that.
