2001 Toyota Camry trunk stoplights won't work

The two stoplights on the trunk lid won't work, causing an indicator light to come on on the dashboard. The running lights on the trunk lid work ok and the stoplights outside of the trunk lid work, as well as the stoplight on the spoiler, mounted on the trunklid.

    Found the broken wires in the trunk as you said. Thanks very much.

    Look in the trunk. Follow the wiring harness down the driver side arm that holds the trunk lid up. Look for broken wires in the harness when the trunk lid arm is bolted to the body. This is a common problem. Please let me know what you find.

Toyota 2001 Camry LE 2.2 Liter Two issues: Interior Dome Light not working... Running & tail lights not working...

take your car to another Toyota dealer, see what they have have to say...BUT - that diagnosis is not that far off far off as that sounds!!
IF you have time... you can unwrap the wires and look for your self... electrical shorts and broken wires do funny things to wiring harnesses.. A LOT I never attempt to understand..floating grounds, wires used for more than one purpose..etc..
Try another dealer..(do not tell the next dealer what the other said!!)..see what they say.. then ASK if "trunk hinge area" is a possibility...

Indicator lights not working so as the hazard lights, it use to work sometimes but now they are not working at all.

Check turn signal fuse,located under a cover at the left end of the bottom of the dashboard.The signal/hazard flasher is located there as well.If fuse is blown,suspect a shorted wire,often at the tail light wiring in the trunk.
