That is your problem, the backup switch, it is on the side of the transmission.

SOURCE: 91 corvette backup light do not work also 3rd brake light ,bulb&fuses are ok.

I had the same problem with a 91 mazda 626. turned out that the wires that ran from the lights along the trunk and back into the harness were broken from opening/closing the trunk. i would check around that area first.

Check the front lights. Usually if i flashes fast it indicate a bulb is out on that side.

SOURCE: 1998 Toyota Camry tail lights and backup lights won't work

Hello.

I have a solution for you, as I see your same issue in my shop quite a bit...There are two possibilities:

You may have a broken wire. This is a very common issue.

Open up the trunk lid, and look at the hinge on the driver side. You will see a wiring harness, in a plastic tube, attached to the arm that holds th trunk lid to the car.... Remove the tubing, and follow the wires towards the back seat area. You are probably going to find a wire that has been broken, from the many actions of opening and closing the trunklid. Splice and resolder the wire, and you should be fine.

The other issue is the tallamp failure sensor may have burned out. This too is rather common. Open the trunk lid, and pull back the inner carpeting on the driver side of the trunk. Locate a small box (it will be white or blue), on a brace. The box is closer to the quater panel sheetmetal. Remove the box, and take it apart. If it looks or smells burnt, you need a new sensor.

I have a 2001 camry. The backup lights quit working. Fuse good bulbs good


Check to see if you have power getting to the backup light, if not then you will need to trace it back to the fuse control box, or take it to an auto electrician to fix the problem, hope this helps

2002 Toyota Tacoma making "chirping" sounds when everything is off.


The only thing that would cause this would be one of those back up alarms. They can be on either side (usually the drivers side). It is about 2 1/2" in diameter. Cut the wires or replace it if you want the beeping while backing up. It is hooked to the backup lights.

Every time I put my 1999 Toyota Tacoma in reverse it blows tv 10amp fuse causing my dash power to go dead.


check the bulbs for the backup lights. Compare the wattage on the bulbs with what your owner's manual calls for. Or ask at a parts store what the wattage should be. "super bright" back-up bulbs at higher wattages than normal can cause this to happen.
