Usually the tail light can be accessed through the trunk. You might have to remove the inside cover or rear carpeting to access the light. Some have plastic wing nuts that secure the light to the body. The bulb holder may be visible with the cover off.

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

You've checked the obvious items and the fact that the high level lamp works proves that the brake lights switch works.

That means it must be a wiring fault, most likely a connector which has come apart (partially or fully) or which has corrosion on the terminals.

Look at the brake switch which is mounted just above the brake pedal and identify the wiring colour.

Now take panels off inside the boot (US= trunk) and identify the same colour/pattern wire. As you trace it, one junction will send a feed to the third light, the other will feed the remaining two lights. Undo the connector, check for corrosion (anything other than bright metal is corrosion, if you see corrosion clean it off back to bright metal) and refasten it together. Check the brake lamps.
If not working trace the wire all the way to each lamp and check for other connectors and give them the same treatment.

If all that is fruitless, then check for a single wire which leaves each cluster and goes to a screw or bolt directly into the vehicle body. This will be the earth return (US = ground return) part of the circuit. Undo the connection to the body and clean off any corrosion back to clean bright metal. It's unlikely to be the earth return though, as the indicators (US= turn signal lights also wouldn't be working as the return is common to both circuits.

2002 toyota camry brake grinds on potholes


unless you can replace pads/rotors, I would say take it to a mechanic.
If this only happens on uneven surfaces, it could also have something to do with front struts or control arm bushings.
Best to have a pro check it out.

Daytime Running Lights Inoperative 2002 Toyota Camry


[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

My brake lights are out, but the third brake light in the rear window works ? what could be the problem on my 2002 toyota camry


both bulbs must be blown or bad connection to the rear lights, because all this is on the same circuit from the brake light switch.

Are you saying that neither of the brake lights work or is it just one of them?

Break light coming on and off


There is a sensor in the master cylinder reservoir, that measures the amount of brake fluid in the reservoir. As the pads wear, the fluid level drops proportionally. When the pads are near the replacement interval, the fluid level is lowest, and the sensor trips the light. Best advise: Get the front brakes checked, they may be due for replacement.

2002 toyota camry breaklights not working


check the brake light switch mounted to the brake pedal. You should be able to see it if you look up behind the dash from the floor.
These can go bad which is the next thing i would check after fuses, and bulbs.
Just make sure that its actually moving enough to activate if so you will have to take it off and you should be able to jump the 2 pins on the connector with a piece of wire and the brake lights would come on. If they do its the brake switch that is bad and get another from the auto parts store.
