1999 996 Reverse Lights Inoperative

Electrical and Electronic

Vehicle Information: Year: 1999; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 35,000;

It seems that both reverse lights have stopped operating on my 1999, 996 coupe and I am wondering about potential solutions or known problems.I have not tried to diagnose the problem yet (just noticed it this morning and my bride has the car today). When driving the car yesterday I did not notice any other systems that were not working or warning lights illuminated...so, unless the reverse lights are on their own fuse I don't believe that is is a fuse related problem. If one light was out I would suspect a broken bulb or bad wire. As both are out, I suspect the sender switch (in the transmission?), or some other electric fault.Are there any known issues with the reverse light system on this car? Do you have thoughts on the top 3 things to diagnose after ensuring that the bulbs and fuse are good and that there is indeed no power getting to the bulb sockets?Thanks in advance for your help
