    Thought about that but my third brake light works fine just the main won't don't illuminate

  • dugiefrsh08 Apr 28, 2010

    And I do have an aftermarket remote start lol where should I begin looking for said problems I took the dash appart but I do not know where to begin.

  • dugiefrsh08 May 01, 2010

    Ok I found the brain to the left of the steering colum everything looks fine so idk.... I also just noticed that the radio antenna doesn't go up anymore when I start the car I'm not sure if that helps but I'm stumped...

  • dugiefrsh08 May 01, 2010

    Well I visually inspected ALL the fuses under the hood and in the cab and I put a multimeter and the one labeled stop and it has power so idk. As for the bantenna I could care less but Imbpretty sure it stoped working the same time as the brake lights.

  • dugiefrsh08 May 01, 2010

    Blinkers/ hazards work and yes it does have the light failure indicator and it is on. As for the fuse being broke I don't think it's the case because if I pull it and hit the brake my center tail light doesn't light up....

    Its the light failure sensor and it costs $480 dollars for the dealer to replace it. You can eliminate the sensor and hard wire the lights.

Your brake switch is probably broken or has gotten unplugged. Your brakes switch can be found right above your brake pedal... Hope this helps!

    Don't know if you have an aftermarket remote start but, i have seen (in poorly done installs) both poor solder joints and wires that will break due to bad wire stripping... Could cause this (sometimes the third brake light will run on a different circuit)... if so, wouldn't hurt to check that wire connection...

  • uno_1 Apr 28, 2010

    haha, Ok, begin with locating the "brain" of the remote start. Every installer has his favorite spot to hide it but, the three top spots i've seen... left of the steering column up high, close to or in the center console, or under the carpet/kick panel (driver side). Once you've found the brain (every manufacturer has different wire color variations if you can see the model number look it up online) look for the "brown" (brake shut down) wire coming out. and trace it to the factory wire. Unwrap the electrical tape or whatever splice was used, and test to make sure everything is solid. while you can see the brain, check to see if it has any fuses attached to it, is so, check them all! I have seen remote start screw with factory systems in a lot of different ways...

  • uno_1 May 01, 2010

    haha, well i don't think the antennas related (that's a whole other can of worms) what i usually do for that is spray some silicone lube onto/into the antenna mast, if its just stuck. But, if the motors not turning, its either burnt out, a fuse has blown or (if you have an aftermarket radio) check the power antenna wire connection. As for the brake lights, i'm running out of ideas for you... are you sure you checked ALL the fuses/relays both under the hood and in the cabin? How are you testing the fuses/power/lights bulbs? Keep me posted, ill let you know if i can think of anything else. if all else fails... run a wire from your third brake light down to the ones that dont work, just make sure you disconnect the original wire and diode isolate them so you dont get anything back feeding...

  • uno_1 May 01, 2010

    Just out of curiosity, do your blinkers/hazards work? I cant remember does that year have an tailight failure indicator light on the dash/cluster? I know it sounds sounds like a waste of time but, go through with your multimeter and check both side of all the fuses with the key on... i cant tell you how many times i visually inspected a fuse and after hrs of trouble shooting i probed it to find out it was cracked/blown...

  • uno_1 May 02, 2010

    have you checked the grounds back by the tail lights? i'm sure that fuse is fine, but i have found sometimes fuses that aren't properly market will control multiple things (i.e. cigarette lighter, radio, dash lights can all be on the same circuit) and if your searching for the dash light fuse you might over look that one if your going solely by the diagram/manual...

SOURCE: 2003 Toyota Camry - Both Brake lights not working

Lok in the trunk on the left side, behind the carpet for a small plastic box with a bunch of wires going to it. Look to see if there is brake light powe coming in with the pedal depressed. If so, and no power is coming out, you need to order and replace the "taillamp failure sensor".

SOURCE: 1989 Toyota Camry. No brake lights.

It could be the relay, which is a yellow box located under the carpeting in the trunk on the left side. It is a problem common to your model. Also, check the brake switch's (behind the brake pedal) functionality (12V present with key at ACC or ON and continuity between wires when button engaged).

i hope this helps

My driver side brake light went out but the tale light still works bulb is new

Hi Jimmy.

Most every circuit in a car goes through a fuse. if you look in your owners manual for the particular vehicle you drive, you should find a listing for a fuse for brake light or brake lights. The tail light being OK should not have anything to do with the brake light. They'll be different bulbs, or, at worst, different filaments in the same bulb, and on different fuses. The brake and tail lights are distinct because otherwise, if you had your tail lights on at night, no one could tell you were pressing your brakes.

If you were meaning that the bulb for the brake light in the tail cluster is good, that also will point to a blown fuse. Check there first.

Good Luck

Head lights work brake lights don't, have changed brake switch and bulbs and checked fuses

When you say you checked the fuse, are you getting power in and out of it and the brake light switch ?

My brake lights don't turn on when i press the brake petal.

assuming fuses are ok and the new bulbs are the correct fitment(there are many different types) check the new pedal switch again.
some are adjustable for length. check when you push pedal down that the switch is NOT still in contact with the pedal. if it is then you may need to adjust it to make it shorter, sometimes just pulling the pedal upwards can be enough to do this.
good luck

My running lights work my turn signals work why don't my brake lights

You either have a bad brake light switch or a bad fuse that powers your brake lights. Go to your fuse panel and check the fuse first. If it checks good then check the brake light switch. The switch will be located on the brake pedal at the top. There should be two wires into the switch. One will have power at all times. as you depress the brake pedal it makes the connection in the switch to the other wire which then sends power to the brake lights and illuminates the bulbs. Use an electrical tester to make sure you have power in and power out when the brake pedal is depressed.

Hell i just bought a chevy cavlier and my back break light is out...the light its self is on...its just the break light when pressed...

you don`t say if its both or just one brake light say the light itself is on but not if you mean tail light or what.the tail lights use a different filament in the bulb than the signal light which is the same filament that the brake light uses.if the signal light work on the rear then the bulbs are good,if just one side works then the bulb is no good on the side that doesn`t work.if the signal lights work but neither brake light works then you need to check the fuses in the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side.if the fuses are good then it will be either a bad wire at the brake switch or a bad brake light switch,this is located on the brake pedal lever under the dash.

Brake lights and cruise control don 't work

Firstly check the bulbs back there and of course the fuses in the fuse panel. If all bulbs and fuses are good check the brake pedal switch at the pedal itself, ensure it gets power and is closing when you press the pedal, with an ohmmeter. good luck
