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.

Not sensor, is a switch. Manual or automatic transmission?

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.
