1.   The back-up lights do not function.  The lamps are good.  The  
ground circuit at the lamps is good.  The proper voltage is present  
on the fuse.  The fuse is good.  Looking at the schematic, I am  
suspecting the back-up switch or connections to it.  I have searched  
the manual.  The question is "Where is the back-up light switch  

Back up light switch is located on driver's side top of transmission. I  
assume you have a manual?  Jack the rear end up and you should see it -  there is 
a rubber boot (or there SHOULD be one) that covers the wires.   Common problem 
is one of the two wires popped off or is loose. Check the switch  with a 
meter and replace the crappy connections on the wires and apply  dielectric 
grease.  Then you should be back in business!

3.  I have used "Armor All" on the black exterior trim  (rear) and on 
the louvers over the engine compartment.  This does not  stay bright 
and non-faded looking for long.  Is there a better  product?

I always use Eagle-1 Tire spray.  Comes in a clear bottle with a black  and 
silver label.  I apply the tire spray liberally to the louvers while  they are 
semi-wet after a wash and rub in with a towel.  I take a clean  towel and 
lightly spray the bumpers with the tire stuff and rub it in with the  towel.  Then 
I use a small cloth and spray the cloth lightly when I do the  air ducts, rub 
strips, rear view mirrors, windshield trim, and other small  parts.  Works 
great and lasts a long time.
Good luck!
