Yes , with a volt meter . Find the switch an back probe wires ,testing for voltage in , then press the brake pedal an check for voltage on wire going out . You'll need a wiring diagram so you know which wire is the right one's . You can find free wiring diagrams at http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html enter vehicle info . year make model an engine size .Under system click on lighting ,then under subsystem click on stop lamp . none of the brake lights work including the high mount stop lights ? A electronic module (smart junction box) controls the lower brake lights . The high mount are controlled directly from brake light switch .
Which fuse did you replace ? The one in the under hood fuse box or one of the two in the I/P fuse box . Do the CHMSL - center high mount stop lamps work correctly ? Here is a description how they work . Stop Lamps
The STOP LP 25 A fuse in the underhood fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the normally open stop lamp switch. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the switch contacts close and battery positive voltage is supplied to both the STOP 15 A fuse and the CHMSL 10 A fuse in the I/P fuse block, and to the turn signal/hazard module. The turn signal/hazard module then supplies voltage to both of the trailer rear turn/stop lamp supply voltage circuits. The voltage from the CHMSL 10 A fuse is to the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL) and the trailer jumper harness. The voltage from the STOP 15 A fuse is to the stop lamps, throttle actuator control (TAC) module, and the cruise control.
Does yours have trailer light hook up ? If so check trailer wiring connector for corrosion . Also check the turn signal / hazard module .
Well before you listen to all these people and do all kinds of crazy random replacements I'd suggest the very simple very easy solution of checking the fuse. If the fuse is bad it's a 3 dollar replacement. If that doesn't work I'd replace all the bulbs, more expensive but cheaper than the control switch. If that is bad it's also a fairly easy fix but a little more pricey.
There are three fuses involved.
There is a 25 amp fuse before the brake switch located in the fuse box under the hood. Then there are two 15amp fuses after the brake switch in the box inside the cabin. One is for the lower brake lights and the other is for the high mount light and the trailer connector.
You would need to know if the 15amp fuse for the lower lights has power when the brake pedal switch is applied.
If all bulbs are known to be good, check fuse for brake lights (stop lamp fuse). If fuse is ok, go to next step
Next step- Does this Camry have a display in the instrument panel that indicates when a brake light is out? (not sure, check owner's manual)
If so, you may have a defective brake lamp sensor. Its mounted in the trunk on the right side. It may be blue, black, brown or yellow and may need to be unsnapped or unscrewed to remove. It will say on its cover what it is. You will need the number off of it to get the proper replacement. They run about $400.
if the third brake light works then ther is a broken wire. start looking for it at the tail lights and work forward if you cant find the break you can always run a new possitive wire from either the third brake light to the tail lights or if the trailer wiring harness hase power to the brake lights you can splice in there as well. hope this helps
