I would say that the tail lamp isn't plugged in but- if it is follow the wiring from the tail lamp forward there must be a break in the wiring -maybe someone cut the wires to patch in towing lights - cheers Denny

Ain't no "might be", I believe the person who told you it was a ground issue is probably shaking his head over the fact that you have not acted on this. Take apart the sockets that plug the wiring harness off that way and make sure they have no excessive corrosion, not forgetting to check the condition of the headlight plug-in. Any ground strap you see along that harness needs to be removed, cleaned and fastened securely with a shot of anticorrosion gunk (your choice, I don't think it matters one damn bit what kind you use since it all should work). Get to work! Enjoy yourself and figure about an hour (+-) for the job.

The brake light side of the bulbs is powered by the brake switch and travels thru the turn signal switch.
If the third brake light works, I would guess the problem is in the turn signal switch.

When i press brake pedal driver side brake light quits working but other wise it works fine?


That has a double filament bulb in it. One is for the tail light and the other for the brake and maybe the turn signal. If your turn signal flashes the tail light and not an individual turn signal bulb it will behave the same way. The way it works is that the tail light filament goes off and the brighter brake light filament comes on. The brake light half of the bulb is out. If you change it, change the passenger side too, it will do the same shortly if you leave it in. They tend to go bad in pairs. Good luck.

RE: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2.4cyl. 4X4 Base Model

I am a Certified Technician and have basic knowledge with electronics in electrical wiring. I searched the web and discovered this is a common problem.

I fixed the problem and it was a simple procedure... The problem is with the reverse light socket at the side with no brake light. This socket functions as a hub to direct current to the brake bulbs.

Remove reverse light socket and re-seat bulb. Check for loose or broken prongs. Replace if necessary.

Swap the reverse socket with the other side.
