Reverse light short

It's an 85 Trans-am with a t5. I was wondering if anyone knew the path that they routed the wires for the Reverse lights. I know it shares a fuse with the turn signals, and that the sensor is on the trans. Who ever had the car in the past decided to do some band aid repairs, and used a resetting circuit beaker for the turn signal fuse instead of repairing the circuit. It's fine with the turn signals on, but the second I put it in reverse you can here it pop, and the lights all dim. He also has the headlight motors working on a toggle switch he wired up instead of figuring out why the lights didn't come up with the switch(my best guess at the moment is Isolation relay? but I'm not 100% where that is located either. Is it the one near the battery?). I do have a Haynes manual, the diagrams don't show the reverse light circuit, nor locations.

Well turns out the switch was shorting out into the housing of the trans.
