Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla
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?

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

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
