Default Backup lights on the third brake light not working.

my regular backup lights work fine, just the ones in the third brake light. the brake light works, I swapped the bulbs with the brake lights i know work, and the backup still doesn't work and the ones i swapped into the brake light work fine, so I know it is not the bulbs. Are the backups in the third light housing on a different fuse than the others? any ideas?

Thanks.

I would assume cargo light as well, not sure I've ever seen a reverse light in that location.

I do not believe those are backup lights on the CHMSL, just cargo lights controlled by the instrument panel dimmer wheel.

^^^^ Ditto This is a great learning forum. The cargo light is on the dash however it is not obvious if you don't know about it. No worries
