No everything is stock

O.k.,your back up lights receive separate individual voltage to each light on a separate wire from the body control module.The most common cause for this issue here is the body control module itself needing replaced.It can short out internally like you see here and cause this issue with it needing replaced.The only other reason I see that this would occur is if there is a short in the white/orange wire leading from the passenger back up light to the body control module with the short needing repaired.Most of the time though the body control module needs replaced. If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.Thanks Pete

Is this something I can do myself
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
I would have the wiring traced first to see if it is shorted out in any areas needing repaired.If it is o.k. then the body control module needs replaced.I dont show an exact cost for it but it can range anywhere usually from $300 to sometimes over $500 and 1.3 hours labor to have replaced.The BCM (body control module) has to be programmed after it is replaced and this is done by a dealer unfortunately. Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here. Thanks Pete
