I just got this car. And I found no bulbs in the reverse sockets. So I tried to put new ones in and the lights stay on. So it must be the sensor switch.
Do you
have the same problem?

Switch is either on the trans or the shift linkage if it is a stick

You sure you got the year correct?

I don't have any information as to the exact location of the switch. Itiis only stated as on transmission. Look for a sensor like component with 2 wires plugged into it.

At transmission, should be plugged to side of it. That is in engine compartment.
