But wait! I tested for continuity again and there is continuity between the blue red wire and ground with and without the lapse connected so therefore I have to find the ground a short between the bullet connecters and the rear lamps

Well the wires are now broken off the reverse switch so I put it back in and will order new reverse switch. The wiring harness seems clean all the way through so I don't know where that short is. So we have to figure out another time

Win! :-) Sorry I didn't help more with the frustrating diagnosis bit- I was on vacation.
