    ok, it comes on also when I put in reverse also. I will try changing all the bulbs. Thanks.

    It comes on when you put it in reverse because you are applying the brakes. The reverse lights are not monitored by the failure sensor. You should be changing 5 brake lamp bulbs.

    Does it come on when you press the brake pedal? If so, you have a burned out bulb, or bulbs that are not of the same wattage. In other words, one is "dimmer" than the other. Please let me know.

    Did you check the brake lamp that is in the back window?

SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

3 things. 1st remove the bulb from the 3rd brake light and see if there is any black in the glass. If so, replace it. If not check your other stop lights bulbs for the same.
2nd. Check the wires on the drivers side trunk hinge to see if any are broken and repair if necessary
3rd. You may have a bad light warning module located in the trunk on the drivers side rear quarter panel behind the covering.

There is a light coming on in my 1994 toyota camry it looks like a little car with lines coming out of the back of it, what does it mean?


Hello. Please allow me to assit.

The light that you see is the 'rear taillamp failure ' indicator. This light comes on when you have a burnt out brake or taillamp. A sensor in the trunk (driver side) looks after the operation of the rear bulbs,.

When checking the rear lamps for outages, please do not forget to look at the brake light in the rear window, it too is monitored by the rear lamp failure sensor.

Replace any burned out lightbulbs, and the sensor will shut off the light.

This is the taillamp failure indicator. You either have a burned out taillamp or a burned out brake lamp bulb(s). Please make sure when you check for inoperative brake lamps that you make sure that the brake lamp in the rear window works, also.

Problem light indicator


Thats indicating that a tail light is out not a back up light. You will need to check those rear lights closer.Your check engine light will need to be checked with a scanner for the codes and go from there.I don't think one has anything to do with the other. Hope this helps, Thanks ,Dan
