Hi, I have 2 questions about my Camry. First, my reverse indicator light comes on when I turn on my lights no matter what gear I am in & secondly, I don't seem to have any back-up lights. Can you help me out with this problem?

The symptoms are typical of a bad ground. One circuit, when turned on, back-feeds through a different one, in this case, the backup lights and indicator. You should find other rear lights aren't working properly either. Usually that means the brake or tail lights are not full brightness. Follow the wires from one of the backup lamp sockets to see if it is cut or the terminal that's bolted to the body is loose or rusty.
