My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there. If you are having problems with a reverse lights, it is possibly due to a reverse shift sensor or damaged electrical relay that powers the light. It’s also possible that you have an exposed wire that’s causing this issue. You might want to have a professional mechanic complete a light not working inspection to determine what is causing this issue.
