SOURCE: tail light stop working on my 92' toyota camry

In the car trunk, there may be a electrical relay box behind the panel on the left side. It is usually no bigger than 4 inches by 4 inches and yellow in color. This is present in 1987-1991 Toyota Camrys and is generally not in most repair manuals. This yellow electrical relay box may have burnt out. Best place to pick one up at an inexpensive price is at the car wrecking or salvage yard. It is very expensive at the dealer. It is easy to replace with no special tools required. I have done this on my 1991 Camry,

SOURCE: 2003 Toyota Camry - Both Brake lights not working

Lok in the trunk on the left side, behind the carpet for a small plastic box with a bunch of wires going to it. Look to see if there is brake light powe coming in with the pedal depressed. If so, and no power is coming out, you need to order and replace the "taillamp failure sensor".

SOURCE: 97 CAMRY TAIL LIGHTS PROBLEM

You are right you do have a short,but it's easy to fix at the same time it is expensive. In your trunk area you will find a bulb out relay it can be either in the right corner or left corner panel in the trunk area,if not there if may be under the rear deck of the trunk(under the rear window inside the trunk) It might be yellow brown or green.One fron the junk yard will work just as good as a new one.If you are skillful you can open it and solder the burned circuit,but you have to know what you are doing.You also neet to find out if you had a bad bulb that shorted so you can rest knowing that what caused it to burn out in the frist place is fixed.

No rear brake lights and rear turn signals not working either front turn signals blink rapidly 2001 chevy HHR all fuses good all bulbs good no power to rear sockets 3rd level brake light works


Your front signals flash rapidly because your rear ones aren't working and that is normal and shows that a bulb in the circuit is out. At least that means the problem is not with the operation of the signal....good. Also your 3rd brake light works which shows the brake switch is working. Again...good.
Everything so far points towards your rear light clusters being at fault, although both at the same time is somewhat unusual.
You don't mention rear lights that come on with headlights or the reverse and fog lights. If nothing is working I would check the earth/grounds and the connection blocks that carry the power to the light clusters, but again both at the same time being faulty is suspicious and if the reverse, fog etc is working then why not the others?
I don't know about your model, but is there a separate fuse for the rear lights that are out? Probably not but worth a check.
Have you recently had something changed on the vehicle, or inspection work done? Maybe wires/connectors/grounds etc have been damaged or disconnected/reconnected wrongly in that area.
Try running a live directly to the cluster to see if that makes anything work as it may show a circuit break as the problem.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

Front parking lights stop working. Tested all fuses and other moduels etc in fuse areas under bonnet and inside car all tested okay. All other lights work and tail lights etc. I changed the parker light...


It could be a ground problem. See if you can trace the ground wire from the bulb socket. If you can identify which connector of the bulb socket is the ground, you can do a continuity test from the socket to the frame or body, using a multi meter. You can also use the multi meter to check for voltage at the socket; positive lead of meter to positive connector of socket and negative lead of meter (black) to a ground. If you get voltage ( about 12 V ) then the problem is a broken ground wire.

Not the switch, or the rears would not be working. Since the green wire powers the rear lights, it has power. So maybe it's the ground connection to the front lights, right? Do you measure battery voltage on the green wire at the back of the light socket connector? If yes, then try moving your negative lead to the w/bl terminal of the connector...

You don't need a colour code as long as you have a test lamp or a voltmeter.
Turn the side lights, indicators, stop lights, reverse lights, rear fog lights on individually and test for a positive wire each time. Label them with some paper tape and a pen if it makes it easier to keep tabs on them.
All your lighting wiring is in the back of the car/truck/hatch, whatever. Your rear light clusters will lead you to all the wiring you need. If its any help, the rear light cluster bulb positions give away which wiring leads to which bulbs. You can see the colours of the wires right there.


Good luck.

I have a 1994 Land Rover Discovery V8i, 5dr. The rear side lights in the light cluster do not work. There is a second row of lights on the bumper bar that do work. I have been told that with this model...


Hello! The 1994 models featured larger headlamps and a second set of rear lights in the bumper. The new rear lights had the wiring changed several times to meet real or expected European safety legislation. Some vehicles are left with an arrangement where the vulnerable bumper contains the only working lights. The rear side lights in the light cluster become non-operational...

You need to reset the alarm by inserting the reset key(small plastic devise with visible contactors that should be with the keys) for a few seconds in the it's hole in the right-hand rear speaker. Open the boot look at the underside of the rear right-hand speaker to locate the hole.

1994 Camry - Brake Lights Work, Tail Lights Wont


Well Jennifer, it sounds like you've done all the things that I'd have done. Try for a bad ground next. Do the lights in the dash cluster work? They're wired together with the tail-lights (so that you know if the rears go out). There should be a ground wire somewhere connecting the body to the engine or chassis.Look around the rear of the engine bay. Good Luck.
