reverse lights problem

hey guys i have a problem with my reverse light on a 2000 expedition xlt 5.4L so here's what i have figured out i tested the transmisson switch and there is power coming out of the switch on the pink and black wire which is the reverse switch wire but i dont have any power at my lights so does any one know where the wire runs from the transsmison switch to the taillights

Like Travis said, I'd start with the simple stuff first...fuse, bulb, where you got power, where you don't (which you've started already).

Electronic gremlins are fun. Not. Good luck.

It stays near or in the dash until it leaves the remote anti-theft personality module. Then goes through the seatbelt harness, mirrors then off to the back up lights.
