Hello and thanks for the donation!
Your Sunfire is equipped with a switch that controls the back-up lamps. From what you have described, this switch has failed, leaving the back-up lamp circuit permanently open (not working). You will need to replace your vehicle's back-up lamp switch, located on the left rear of the transaxle.
