Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If the reverse light are coming on with the headlamps then that would mean the headlamp circuit is shorted to the reverse light circuit. You are going to need to check there reverse light wiring from the back to the front looking for a short . I have enclosed the wiring diagram in the link below for reference.
