As for the reverse lights if the bulbs are good and they are getting power it sounds like your backup switch in the transmission went out

The "multifunction switch" is bad. In the old days, this was called the turn signal switch. The brake light wiring for the two non functioning lights goes through this switch. Have your mechanic check the wiring into and out of this switch. It's in the steering column.

Tail lights work but not brake lights 93 toyota camry


The brake light side of the bulbs is powered by the brake switch and travels thru the turn signal switch.
If the third brake light works, I would guess the problem is in the turn signal switch.
