Hi Earl, I do not believe there is a relay for the stop lights. Make up a test lamp and inspect the power supply from the brake light switch through to the rear lamp clusters. You will notice that the circuits connect to the lamp failure unit (When standing behind the vehicle, it is usually found on the right side, behind the carpets of the trunk (boot) and mounted on the inner frame adjacent to the right hand lid hinge.) If power is reaching, check for earth connections of the brake lights. Happy new year and regards John

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".

Check the trunk wire harness right by the left side trunk lid hinge for broken wires. This is a common problem on these cars. If the wires are broken you will have to repair them. The best way is to add short lengths of wires to the breaks and solder them back together. Use electrical tape to recover the harness.

SOURCE: 1989 Toyota Camry. No brake lights.

It could be the relay, which is a yellow box located under the carpeting in the trunk on the left side. It is a problem common to your model. Also, check the brake switch's (behind the brake pedal) functionality (12V present with key at ACC or ON and continuity between wires when button engaged).

i hope this helps

Toyota tail lights not work


It could be a bad switch. if the blinkers dont work then it could be a bad multifunction switch or flasher relay. If the brake lights dont work it could be a bad break switch (located under the dash above the brake pedal). If its just the running lights could possible be the wrong kind of bulb. If nothing works at all it may be due to bad light sockets.

My brake lights stopped working on my 87 toyota camry.. replaced pedal switch and bulbs.. fuse is fine..


THAT WAS MY SOLUTION ALSO, A PINCHED, OR BROKEN WIRE. USE A TEST LIGHT TO SEE IF YOU HAVE POWER TO ALL WIRES LEADING TO TAILLIGHTS. L/S, R/S,TURN SIGNALS, ETC.CHECK ALL WITH TESTLIGHT.

Park lights work on 1995 Camry but brake lights don't.. high beams work but low beams don't. All bulbs have been replaced but still not working. Any ideas?


for the brake lights check your fuses and relays and for your low beams your multifunction lever needs to be changed.

My brake lights wont come on..ive changed the bulbs and they still dont work...i cant find the brake light FUSE... 1993 TOYOTA CAMRY


Break light fuse would be in your main fuse panel, most likely under the dash somewhere on the drivers side. A "key" of sorts may be on a sticker near the panel or molded into the plastic cover. If not a key should also be in the vehicle manual as to what fuse is what. Next thing is the break light switch attached somewhere under the dash to the break peddal might be faulty. This is most likely a plunging kind of switch that activates the break lights as the pedal is being pressed. Good luck!

87' toyota camry stoplight switch


Look under the dash on drivers side .There is an electrical brake light switch mounted to the brake pedal lever.Should be two wires going to it.Unhook the connector and check for voltage.You should have 12 volts on one wire.Jump the two wires over with a paper clip,if the brake lights come on replace the brake light switch...Good Luck...
