Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla

Open Question

Only top middle brake light works, bulbs, fuses are ok...what next?

I checked brake bulbs on both sides and the "STOP" fuse, everything looks ok. Center brake light works fine so I did not check the switch. But no light on either side. What do I look at next?

Try cleaning the contacts with a wire brush if they appear dirty and then apply a small amount of silicone to the bulb contacts also try replacing the bulb as sometimes they don't appear to be blown but are

The wires that go to the outside reverse light or bed lights are on a little different circuit. Most likely somewhere between the door and the back of the inside of the cab there is a broken wire or bad connection. Start with getting a very good test light made just for this kind of issue. Check both sides of the fuse. If good move to the light it self. Remove the bulb and test the positive portion of the light socket. Look for broken wires here too. If the test light doesn't work first check to be sure you have a great ground. DO NOT TRUST the ground on the light fixture it self. Get a separate ground and check for power at the light. The best way to get power to this is to open a door AND turn on the switch to the bed light. If you do not get power - go back to the fuse box and find the wire that goes to the bed light. An easy way to know which wire you want to trace is to call the dealer with the Vin # and ask for a print out. Tell them what you're doing and they usually will help. Also check for any Recalls on your vehicle based on the Vin # as well.
I think this will get you up and going if you follow my instructions.

Best of it

Where is the brake relay on a 2000 tahoe


No relay in the wiring diagram. There is a 20amp hazard fuse and a 10amp vehicle stop fuse in the engine compartment fuse box.
If those fuses are good, and the brake light switch checks out ok, I would look at the turn signal switch next.

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.

Brake lights do not work All bulbs have been replaced.


Troubleshooting Procedures - Read Completely Before Beginning
(American Car) All Brake Lights Not Working
  • Check System Fuse: A fuse is used to protect the brake light circuit from amperage overload. If the fuse has failed it will not allow the electrical current to continue to the brake lights. To check the fuse, first locate the brake light system fuse in the fuse panel which is either under the dash or under the hood in the power distribution center. Connect the test light to a ground like an engine or dash bracket and turn the ignition key to the "on" position. Using the test light probe both sides of the fuse. If the test light illuminates on both sides the fuse is ok continue onto the next step. If one side of the fuse illuminates the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced. If the fuse fails as soon as it is replaced or when you apply the brake pedal the brake light electrical circuit is shorted to ground. Rarely a system short can occur, a car repair manual is needed to find the wiring schematic for the brake light circuit. Once the brake light wiring has been located inspect and repair as needed.
  • Check Brake Light Bulbs: All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If all of these brake light bulbs fail no brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say all three brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove any of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is ok or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are ok continue to the next step.
  • Checking the Brake Light Switch: A control switch is used to connect the brake light electrical circuit. This switch is located near the brake pedal lever. Basic switches have just two wires, power in and power out to the turn signal switch. Use a test light that is grounded and with the key in the "on" position test for power at one side (wire) of the switch, then press the brake pedal while testing the opposite side (wire). It should illuminate the test light, if electrical power is connected through the switch go to the next step. If no power is detected through the switch the brake light switch has failed and replacement is required. If your car is equipped with more than two wires integrated into the brake light switch a car repair manual is needed to locate the proper brake light circuit wiring.

ljones, Did you check the "VEH stop" fuse in the left side instrument panel fuse box. There are 3 stop light fuses, 1 for all the stop lights located in the under hood fuse box. 2 in the left side IP fuse box. 1 for the upper stop light and 1 for the lower stop lights. The fuse box in the IP is where the upper and lower stop lights split. Let me know.

Need fuse schematic


if the fuse was blown the stop lights on both sides would be inop, also if the stop light circuit were dead u would be unable to get the trans out of park, use a 12 volt test light and test the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal, u can buy a test light from Autozone, kragen and others for about $5 US. If the system has power cjheck the bulb socket it may be defective, use the 12 volt test light while someone pushes the brake pedal. let me know what u find and i will give u further assistance as ness.

Both of my brake lights went out at the same time


I Just had the same problem. I found that the bulb socket was inserted in such a way as to cause a short which blows fuse 46 when you press the brake pedal. I also had some bulbs which didn't fit properly. I hope this helps someone out. Also when Fuse 46 blows, you can't start the car till you replace the fuse.

For those of you who don't know where the fuse panel is its on the left "driver's side of American BMW's under the hood nearest the windshield cover by a rectangular black plastic box. It snaps open from the front side.

I took out the whole light assembly and cleaned it and replace all the mismatched bulbs with the correct ones, to be sure I fixed my problem for good. Check control now reads "ok"

All this refers to when you press the pedal all the brake lights stop working and you control center says brake circuit failure.

The brake lights are not working


could be the wiring connection. i'm sure the three lights came from the same line from the brake switch. so if the third light is coming on, then the connection where they separated should be tyraced. or the ground of the side lights could be missing,. check the ground wire of the side lights for proper grounding.
