Reverse Lights out

So... my reverse lights werent working...

then they were...

then they weren't...

I honestly can't figure out what the problem is, they dont blink on and off, they either work or they don't.

I've changed fuses with no change in the strange behaviour i'm getting and I don't know what else to think... changing bulbs has no effect either.
