I have an 86 caprice wagon I bought about a month ago it needed reverse lights after I put them in I noticed that the reverse lights don't work but they work when you shift from park to reverse and reverse to park hmm kinda weird ant suggestions or ideas?

If you mean the lights only illuminate if you first shift to R and then back to P you probably have a misaligned reverse light switch on the bottom of the column.

If you mean you only have lights when shifting into R, then you got bigger problems than a reverse light Laughing

It's an easy fix, especially if you just replace the switch instead of trying to Mickey mouse it to work.
It's also the same fix for that old "put the car in R and lift up on the shifter to get lights" issue.
