    I changed them just to be sure. I did not see any corrosion.



    Thx, Bill

    I would think it's the stoplight switch (aka brakelight switch) on the upper brake pedal, but you have the one light working in the center window?

  • Curt Downs May 11, 2010

    So the brake light in the rear window works, but not the 2 rear brake lights? You changed the bulbs, were the old ones all burned out, or did you change them to be sure they were ok? Any corrosion inside the bulb sockets?

It may be the brake switch, on most vehicles the brake switch is located under the dash at the brake pedal lever, A plunger type switch when brake pedal is depressed plunger extends compleating circuit , may just need adjustment. peace S.R.

No lights in the back except for top brake light


sounds like a real delema, I would check all fuses first, see how it is . then check wiring @ rear for corrosion, bad connection, etc., inspect closly, next, check all light bulbs, closely, anything yet ? Inspect your wires from back to front along frame rail, under vehicle, for corrosion, bad conn., etc., I'm thinking maybe a main power wire or ground both very important, power to send, ground to send back, what goes around comes around, understand ? many people overlook the ground wire, without it you got nothing, like what you have , nothing !!!! NOW, all power starts @ the battery, so don't forget , those wires need inspection also. your turnsignal switch needs adressed also, in your steering column, and the headlight switch ! take one step @ a time, use patience, check items off as you go, do easiest first, fuses, wires, replace 4-way flasher, turnsignal flasher, get the idea ? you'll get it, keep it simple , cause it is !!!!!!!

Rear stop lights (lower) won't come on when pedal depressed, BUT the high mount stop light does come on. Changed the bulbs - no go, the old ones did not look bad. All other rear lights work fine. ...


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.

First just check the bulbs. You gain access to the bulbs from inside the trunk area, pull back any carpet in the way, the holder/socket should pop out with a quarter turn to get to the bulbs.

Rear brake lights not working, but bulbs are fine


Hi! Have you checked the brake light switch? usually located at the top of the footbrake pedal, it is a plunger type and should have two wires going to it? if faulty try bridging the connection/wires for a test! have someone watching your lights to save jumping in and out of vehicle.
Merry Christmas!

3rd brake light


This is how i did it on my 2006 Sonata

1.) unplug the connector in the trunk (its a small white plug running up to the third light, there should be a small clip you squeeze).

2.) remove the 2 gold-colored screws from inside the trunk. They can be seen from the trunk. 1 is thru the larger square opening where the wire connects to the 3rd brake light. The 2nd is on the right side thru a small (screwdriver width) hole covered by a piece of foam tape stuff I had to punch me screwdriver through the foam to get to it.

3.) after removing the 2 screws, go inside the cabin and the brake light housing pops up.

4.) disconnect the bulb from the housing while inside the cabin (I had to do this with me two forefingers since the housing only pops up and inch or two).

5.) in the trunk remove the wire and bulb. (it's about 5 inches long. the wire from the connector to the bulb socket)

6.) reverse steps to install.

It is a pain and reqiuires a bit of time only because there isn't a lot of room to move around, but it beats taking it to the dealershio!
