    There is a switch on the brake cylinder that is pressure operated.

    It could be
    1. wire fell off
    2. switch is stuffed
    3. earth is shot
    4. fuse blown
    Fuse is easiest to check but my money is on the switch

    Ooop - for some reason I thought you said brakes
    And I dont even had a red wine in my hands
    Maybe that is the problem

    but generally the same answer
    Manual - switch on gear box
    Auto - dopey fidley switch at the bottom of the housing

    Just to add to the mix,

    the power for the reverse lights comes from the positive terminal on the coil runs around the left hand side of the engine (in the engine bay) where there should be a black inline fuse holder the wire than continues through the firewall to the switch and lights.

    The most likely culprit is the wire is not connected to the coil or the fuse is blown/missing or the holder is damaged.

    (This is assuming it's a manual I have limited experience with the auto but suspect it's a similar setup)
