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.

Why does my reverse light come on whenever I use the brakes. (yes I am in drive)

If the backup lights come on when you hit the brake pedal, chances are one of the tail lamp housings is shorting out. Or the wiring harness going to the rear of the car. The reverse lamp and brake light circuits are different, even different fuses.

My cruise control won't work and my brake light is on. The car is a 1994 Toyota Camry. Thank you.

Your brakes warning light or your actual brake lights? If it is your warning light that can come Monday if you're park break is on or slightly on or the switch that says that it is on is faulty, in which case it may tell your cruise control to turn off. If your brake lights stay on there's something pul to you about your switch by the pedal as your cruise will not work when you hit the bricks and this will be perceived as you hitting the brakes. A break warning light will also, come on if your brake fluid is low.

Replaced bulbs in camry replace bulb indicator light is still there when turn car on and hit brakes, double checked all lights to make sure they are on.

Check and make sure all the brake light bulbs have the correct bulb in them. Even if they work, if the incorrect bulb is installed it could put the indicator on.

How to reset rear light out indicator lamp

There is no "reset" for the rear lamp failure system. The light goes out automatically wehen all of the rear lamps (brake and tail) are working. Did you check the brake light in the lower part of the back window? Also note that the lamp sensor is very sensitive; it needs to see all the bulbs to be the same wattage. The wattages can vary from nfgr to mfgr. Let me know waht you find on the 3rd brake lamp in the back window.

Hand brakes

The light is blinking because the brake fluid in the master cylinder reservioir is low. Add an ounce of fluid and the light will go out.

The rear brakes also are in need of adjustment.

This should help you out.
A FixYa rating would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
