'95 Camry rear brake lights not working and are hot

Bottom left on dash panel is an indicator light that looks like the top of the car and 2 red lines are coming out from each side where the rear lights are.
My 3rd rear light is working but I don't think the other 2 are.
They are also "hot" to the touch.
Any ideas?

SOURCE: 95 sub emerg/parking brake light will not turn off

Only two things should normally activate the light:

Parking Brake engaged switch.

Low Fluid level in master cylinder.

I don't think you did any work to the Parking brake, but you should check it to be sure.

I believe that you would have double checked the fluid level, but please check it again.

Other things that could activate the light would be a worn or leaking master cylinder; improper brake fluid type; a damaged brake booster diphragm .

I have attached a link with excellent info on how a brake system works here.

Also, does the light always stay on, or only when you apply the brakes?

This is the taillamp failure indicator. You either have a burned out taillamp or a burned out brake lamp bulb(s). Please make sure when you check for inoperative brake lamps that you make sure that the brake lamp in the rear window works, also.

SOURCE: 2000 toyota camry check engine

wires are pinched and shorting together near the left (drivers side) trunk hinge. brake light power is feeding back through the reverse light wiring. this will also turn on the check engine light with a neutral safety switch malfunction code as the computer also sees this voltage in the reverse light circuit. Find and repair the wiring, pull the EFI fuse in the panel under the hood to clear the code. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Dash lights and rear lights not working.

Check for blown TAILIGHT FUSE. By not turning on the dash lights, you definitely know something is wrong. How long do you think it would be before another driver told you " your tailights are out ? " Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2003 Toyota Camry - Both Brake lights not working

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".

Parking lights plate lights taillights and shift indicator light went out on my 95 mercury grand marquis LS. Not a spot for fuse, and changed lcm please help


But there would be a fuse for those lights, somewhere. The park/taillights and the license plate light would for sure be on the same fuse. Not sure about the shift indicator light, that might be on a separate fuse like for dash lights and/or instrument panel lights. But yes, you need to look at all your fuse panel sites again, there might be more than one under the dash, too, maybe behind the glove box or under the dash on the passenger side.

Check to see if your brake lights and rear turn signal lights work. Do they still work right? If they don't work either, there may be a ground problem with the rear lights. If still no help with the lights, one would need a voltmeter and a wiring diagram of the lights to track down the problem. Things like looking for power along the electrical path from the switch to the fuse panel to the lcm to the bulbs. First find the fuse. good luck.

Reset reverse light indicator camry


Make sure the tail lights and brake lights are working including the one in the rear window, if any of these are out the dash warning light will stay on, any bulbs that look discolored should be replaced

Car with lines behind it on dash whats up?


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.

The icon (the car with the lines behind it) is your Rear Lamp Failure indicator.

This tells you that you have a brake lamp, or a park lamp that is burned out. When you check the rear lamps, make sure you look at the brake light in the rear window.

You are probably going to find a burned out bulb.

The warning light that looks like a car with lights coming from the rear indicates what? This light is just below the check engine light on the dash.


This warning light should indicate that there is a rear light failure. Running lights, brake lights, signal lights, reverse lights. You should check all the bulbs to see if any are burnt out.

1994 camry reverse indicator ilght on when breaking


Hello! May I suggest possibly a bad earth? can you try standing at the rear of the vehicle with ignition on ask your wife to apply the brakes, do any other lights glimmer? failing this with brakes still applied pop into reverse and see if any lights glimmer or come on? try again with left or right indicator's flashing and brakes applied, is there an irratic signal or are the reverse lights blinking too?
If any of the above take the bulb holders out of the rear lenses look for corrosion, bad contacts, broken filiaments and security. Clean and replace then see what happens.
Just a thought?
Hope this works? Good Luck!

This is the taillamp failure indicator. You either have a burned out taillamp or a burned out brake lamp bulb(s). Please make sure when you check for inoperative brake lamps that you make sure that the brake lamp in the rear window works, also.

Camry 1995


Look to see if the "center" brake light is inoperative. The symbol that you are describing is the indicator for a taillamp failure. I would bet that the brake lamp in the back window is not lighting up. Also, it is very important that ALL of the taillamp bulbs be of the same brand. Different brands may have different wattages, and this too could light the failure indicator, as the sensor reads resistance via the total wattage draw when the lights are on. Hope this helps.
