Default Reverse lights on when driving/parked, off when reversing.

Ok, so the reverse lights (ones on the trunk) are on when im parked, or driving, but when i put it in reverse they shut off.

First i tried puling the fuse, and putting it abck in.. and it worked

But now they wont go off again

Whats up? How do i fix it.


PS: its a 2001 9-5 aero

Probably a short in the wiring loom where it goes through the rubber trunking from rear wing to trunk. Most lighting problems on the trunk are due to chaffed/broken wiring caused by constant opening/closing of trunk lid.
