Question about 2000 Toyota Camry
I replaced the bulb and the fuse, but the right light refuses to come on.
The wiring and connections are bad there.
most LHD cars wire left side over to right.
and if car had tailer hacks, this is #1 way to mess up wiring.
i call it Uhauled.
all it takes to find this is, a simple voltmeter.
find where the volts dies. and bingo,
id inspect all connectors back there for corrosion, and damage or hacking, (illegal slices, using wrong methods and parts)

There should be at least 2 bulbs in the light assembly. One light is the light that is on when you turn on your headlights with out the brake pressed, the other light only lights up while you press on the brake. Make sure you are replacing the correct bulb. You may have been replacing the bulb that stays on. Your lights may be set up to turn off the light that stays on when the headlights are on while pressing the brakes.

have you checked the earthing continuity-if it's this other bulbs may also partly light when brakes used
Check continuity of live from center to lh & rh lights and/or is there a live at those lights

Lok in the trunk on the left side, behind the carpet for a small plastic box with a bunch of wires going to it. Look to see if there is brake light powe coming in with the pedal depressed. If so, and no power is coming out, you need to order and replace the "taillamp failure sensor".

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
