Default reversing lights and rear veiw camera not working

As the title suggests my reversing camera on the mygig stereo stopped working the other day. Then last night I notice d the reversing lights not working as well.
They doesn't seem to be a fuse for the reversing lights. That was my first thing I was going to check. So what activates the camera and reversing lights they must be something on the trans or a switch on the transmission shifter.
the WH is a CRD LIMITED.

The transmission shift module talks to the front control module to trigger the reversing lights. Could be either.

Front control module, located just behind the battery. Other then wiring/pin check not much you can do to it.

I have tested the the wiring from the rear reverse globes all the way back to the control module at the battery
All ok up to that point.
Clarky I think you are on the money with what you said.

Not sure but this is the one out of my wh sorry photo upside down
Went to jeep on way home from work to see how much a new one is $1500.they want. A lot of money for reverse lights and a reversing camera.
Still looking into finding the output feed on the transmission and then teeing into that and bypass the front control module if it can be done.

I don't think it is the shift module as when I shift it into reverse the stereo will go into the camera mode but it's just a black screen.

The camera power is spliced in to the reverseing lights after the front control module.
