I have a 2012 turbo in which the back up lights are not working (both sides).
I know that there is no problem with the bulbs. What l am trying to figure out is - Which number fuse in the drivers side fuse compared goes to the backup lights?

I just went thru this hassle about a year ago.
I tested lights/fuses, etc. wiring.
It ended up being the back up lite switch. If you have a 6 speed, it's easily replaceable. (cheap too). About under 20 bucks. Think I got one of mine for like 15 dollars.
Anyway, it's easily tested. Unplug the switch (located (if you have a 6 speed manual), towards the front of the trans. Small 2 wire plugin. Unplug it. Jumper the pins (on the wiring, obviously), and turn key on. The smallness of the wires is kind of strange, but again, THOSE only trigger a relay. Not the actual LIGHTING of the lites. With key ON, the back up lites should lite up.

Good luck, have fun

Steve
