Check the 10 amp Tail fuse. If it isn't that, I would remove the tail light relay and probe the relay socket with a volt/ohmmeter to figure out where the failure is.

Testimonial: "I've checked the fuses in the main fuse panel and there is no tail fuse, only a head fuse. However, I did check all the other possible fuses, visually and with an ohm meter, just in case and they are all good. This vehicle has an electrical safety feature that if the lights are left on after the engine is shut down, all the lights will extinguish once the door is opened. I thought the relay for that feature might be the culprit?! However, I don't have a schematic for the electrical system to illustrate where that relay is located. All the lights on the car work with the exception of the forward and rear clearance lights and the license plate light."

    The diagram I posted is supposed to be for 2000 Camry. What you are saying is the diagram is incorrect?

I have a solution for you, as I see your same issue in my shop quite a bit...There are two possibilities:

You may have a broken wire. This is a very common issue.

Open up the trunk lid, and look at the hinge on the driver side. You will see a wiring harness, in a plastic tube, attached to the arm that holds th trunk lid to the car.... Remove the tubing, and follow the wires towards the back seat area. You are probably going to find a wire that has been broken, from the many actions of opening and closing the trunklid. Splice and resolder the wire, and you should be fine.

The other issue is the tallamp failure sensor may have burned out. This too is rather common. Open the trunk lid, and pull back the inner carpeting on the driver side of the trunk. Locate a small box (it will be white or blue), on a brace. The box is closer to the quater panel sheetmetal. Remove the box, and take it apart. If it looks or smells burnt, you need a new sensor.

Park neutral position switch

Yes I would agree the trans selector switch has failed, provided the wiring is good.
The license plate lights would be on a different circuit tied into the regular tail lights.

1997 camry toyota rear running lights dont work. bulbs are fine and all other electronics work, why is this and how can i fix it?

look for a tail light relay and fuse--probably in the engine compartment relay box. Try swapping the tail light relay with the horn relay and see if the lights work. If yes, replace the relay. Please let me know if you have more questions.

My 2000 toyota camry's back lights are off when I drive but work when I hit the brakes. What should I check?

There could be several problems. It could be your tail fuse, taillight control relay, light control switch, integration relay, or wire harness. I would start with replacing the fuse. If that doesn't work then try the relay, it looks like the relay next to it, the Defogger Relay is the same type.

The battery light indicates your vehicle has battery voltage or lower, meaning your alternator is not charging correctly or the battery is not receiving the charge correctly.

Have your charging system tested to determine if the fault is the alternator or the battery. it is usually the alt.

The picture of the car with the rear lights on is your rear light failure indicator.
It is telling you that you have either a tail or brake bulb that is blown out... although with age the sensors tend to fail, so if all the bulbs work, look into the tail light module as a problem. It is located in the drivers rear wheel well behind the carpet and is yellow. it typically will have burn marks on it when it fails.
