Reverse Lamp problem

I noticed the other night my reverse light wasn't coming on when i am backing up. I checked the bulb and it isn't blown. Is there a fuse to check or can it be something else?

What year is it? Check the switch. Its located on the trans with 2 wires.. Also, when you find the switch, unplug it and put the 2 wires together. If the light goes on, its the switch

on my 97 d-90 the same thing happened the way they had it set up, the connection was getting covered with all the water, dirt, salt etc... that the tire kicks up, we ordered up a new harness thing and replaced the whole thing, the new kit came with a boot to protect it this time through......but it might not

Do I just climb under and check the wires or is there another way to access them?

What trans is in that/ R-380? If so, the switch is screwed into the drivers side of the trans casing. It looks like a sensor with 2 wires on it.
