Question about 2008 Toyota Highlander
If you have only one bulb not working, or if you have only one side of the rear lights not working, it would not be a fuse.
Fuses generally control , for example, all the rear tail lights, or all the front parking lights, etc.
Those fuses are found in the fuse holder underneath the dashboard of the vehicle.
If you have only one bulb out, either the bulb is burned out, or a socket for the bulb is defective, or the ground wire is not working.
If you have one side out, you likely have a wiring problem.
God bless your efforts.

SOURCE: Highlander Tail Light
Could be the seal around the taillight assembly is leaking water onto the bulbs. I had a similar problem and resealed the plastic lens cover and that was that.... no more burned out bulbs.

Did you fix this? I have the same issue....honda states it is a controller unit (after the fuse box....before the lights) If there was a short, there is NO protection!! An obvious design flaw.....$350 part + labor. Let me know how you resolved your issue? EdB

SOURCE: How do you replace the
remove the screws in the tail light housing. Either there will be 4 screws on the outside holding the housing, or there will be two plastic wing nuts on the inside behind the rear liner. Oce the screws or nuts are removed, then you can gently pry off the plastic tail light lens.

RE: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2.4cyl. 4X4 Base Model
I am a Certified Technician and have basic knowledge with electronics in electrical wiring. I searched the web and discovered this is a common problem.
I fixed the problem and it was a simple procedure... The problem is with the reverse light socket at the side with no brake light. This socket functions as a hub to direct current to the brake bulbs.
Remove reverse light socket and re-seat bulb. Check for loose or broken prongs. Replace if necessary.
Swap the reverse socket with the other side.
