If the other brake lights work, probably broken wire. Eye level meaning Suv hatch? If so, the wires tend to break at the rubber boot from the hatch to the body. The reverse lights run threw the neutral safety switch on the transmission. Could be a broken wire, most times it is the switch.
If this is a newer lexus, then its very clever. It WILL be a blown bulb, but when a bulb is out, the car lights the next nearset bulb to substitute. Have a closer look at the rear lights and check all the bulb filaments by eye.
replace the bulb...??? This requires you remove the rear package deck (to access the bulb & socket). to do this, remove the seat bottom (two bolts hold the rear seat bottom to the chassis, then remove the bolts which hold the shoulder cushions (LH & RH - 12mm bolts) then remove the cosmetic molding around the trunk access (7 to 8 screws) then remove the "C" pillar covers (SRS curtain airbag LH & RH) to access the rear deck package & access the third brake lamp bulb. replace it, then reassemble.
If memory serves, there are two screws holding this light assy to the rear package deck. They are covered (LH and RH side of this assy). remove the covers and using a phillips screwdriver, remove the screws and lift the assy up and away from the rear glass. you now have access to the bulb and socket.
Sounds like he may have blown the brake light fuse while messing with the bulb. Make sure the correct bulb is installed. It should be a double filament bulb not a single.The wrong bulb will blow the fuse. The shift lock solenoid uses the brake light switch to unlock. The ABS code will be for the brake light system and will clear itself when the power is restored to the brake light switch.
not sure which top tail light you mean? do you wish to replace bulb or actual lamp on the rear screen? this is the high level brake light ! OR do you wish to replace bulb in one of the rear tail lamps offside/nearside ? which ever ? the h/level brake light bulb is accessable for bulb from the rear panel on hatch behind lamp bulb is 16 watt capless push in type
