1. First off are your front running lights on? If the fronts are working please read on-------

Was there a bulb replaced recently? if so, was the wrong bulb installed? I have seen a single filament or a double filament when it called for one but was replaced with another.

Also your ground wires at the back by the tail lights, if there is rust or corrosion on the bolt that mounts the ring terminal to the chassis it will not allow them to work properly and it will cause back feeding through the system as it is looking for a ground and may cause dimming of other lights on that circuit.

2. If your fronts are not working or rears are not working, then there is a chance that it is the switch itself, lead coming from relay to fuse box. Thats about it....

Please let me know if this helps.

The tail lights do not work. The headlights, blinkers, and brake lights work. I checked the fuses and they are all good.


It can be faulty tail light bulb or its issue with tail light control switch or its wiring's are short.

Check the voltage at fuse slot of tail light.Do you receive 12 volt there.If not,then it says tail light switch is not receiving power supply.

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.

HOW MANY BULBS ARE IN THE REAR LIGHTS (SUCH AS FOR PARKING, REVERSE, BRAKE). IF WARNING LIGHT ON PANEL IS ONE, WOULD I SEE A BURNT OUT BULB?


You may or may not see a burnt out bulb. The dash light can also mean there's a current issue (ie none of the bulbs are lighting)

2 reverse bulbs
2 license plate bulbs
2 turn signal bulbs
2 rear sidemarker bulbs (side of your tail light assembly)
2 running light bulbs which are the same as your stop light bulbs in the tail light assembly
1 to 6 high mount stop light bulbs (if they're in the window and varies on models)
1 strip of LED brake lights if you have a spoiler

Why is My Brake Lights Are On In My 92 Toyota Camry...


add fluid then recheck for the light, also when fluid level goes down it means the brakes are nearly worn out.
