Sounds like just the back up switch (reverse lights) need to be replaced.

You think I just need to change the back up light bulbs ? Also I have no tag lights working


Well I assumed you already had changed them. That would be the first place to look. Check the tag light bulbs also. Hopefully there just burnt out.


Try the trunk and on the left..driver side...see if you can find a wiring harness near the driver side trunk hinge. Wiggle that harness around while you watch those problem lights. Engine should be OFF so you do not run yourself over. Get back with results.
