Question about 1984 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

1984 toyota camry no brake lights switch fuse and bulbs are good

I've got 12volts passing through brake light switch. No voltage coming through to back. I checked at big connector that comes down to lights in back. I'm sure ground and bulbs are good in back. I need 12volts to the green with white stripe wire in back. I have spent several hours on this problem. I don't know now to check voltage path from switch to rear. switch has two big green wires coming out of it with 12 volts these change after a couple of inches via a coupler to smaller white and red with black stripe wire. Car has cruse control. cruse control switch is working properly.

    The brake light circuit goes through the turn signal assembly to turn off the brake lights when the turn signal is activated.

    Maybe you could wiggle the turn signal handle back and forth, up and down, and see if you get intermittent brake light voltage.

    DO you , or can you follow harness back through, as in does it go into trunk & under rear seat, then sill plate area by doors or elsewhere? from front, Common route on some vehicles from front to back is behind kick plate on passenger side, or drivers side, then under sill cover under door, and back under rear seat to rear lights. Or right up through center console area.

I have No brake lights on my 1990 camry LE sedan automatic, I;ve changed the fuse, bulbs and the brake pedal switch, whats next ? whats this about a lamp sensor ?

Yes there is a lamp sensor that is between the brake light switch and the rear lamps. If you have a center light it is connected directly to the brake switch and bypasses the sensor.
I would check for voltage in and out of the brake switch - if you have voltage out you may have a problem with that sensor.

Tail lights work but not brake lights 93 toyota camry

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.

Repalced brake switch and still cant get the brakelights to work

You should check the following
1) adjustment of the switch, it might just be the pedal is not allowing it to make the circuit
2) the fuse
If you bridge to +ve and ground wires going to the switch the lights should come on. If they dont then theres an issue with the bulb or the fuse

Brake lights don't work. Replaced bulbs, checked

Yes, you need to of course check the voltage coming into and going out of the brake light switch, if 12 Volts are there going out and coming in while pressing on the brake pedal, your brake lights aren't getting a good ground or there is a break in the circuit between that switch & the lights.

On occasion the tail lights will work with a weak ground circuit where the Brake lights won't. Best way to determine this is to just hook up the 12 volt tester to the Brake light hot wire & there at the bulb ground, then in an area away from the bulb that has a good possibility of contact/ground.

Really that's it, if the 12Volts is getting to the bulb but it isn't lighting, if you aren't getting the voltage there and the brake switch is hot on both sides when pressed, the break in voltage will have to be traced from that switch to the tail light to find the problem.

good luck.

87' toyota camry stoplight switch

Look under the dash on drivers side .There is an electrical brake light switch mounted to the brake pedal lever.Should be two wires going to it.Unhook the connector and check for voltage.You should have 12 volts on one wire.Jump the two wires over with a paper clip,if the brake lights come on replace the brake light switch...Good Luck...
