Question about 2002 Toyota Highlander
I have a 2002 Toyota highlander passenger brake light not working. the tail light and turn signal are working fine but not the brake light. If it were the fuse wouldn't the drivers side brake light be out too? AND wouldn't the tail light be out as well?

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.

The brake light has its own bulb. you have to remove the tail lamp fromthe vehicle to replace the bulb. it is a double filiment bulb. make sure you replace it with the correct bulb or the warning lamp will stay on.
