Its the brake pedal switch under the dash. My 1989 did the same thing.

Check for factory wiring under the dash or near the fuse panel that has been tampered with and check to see if you a wire that is keeping constant power.

If it is headlights and or all parking lights as well as the tail lights, the DRL module likely burned out. Smell it. Just left of glove box latch hidden. Clean your battery terminals, system takes the path of least resistance to ground. I hacked my burned DRL with a single jumper wire from the only constant hot power input (greenish if I remember right, third pin over from one side) to its closest neighbor connection on the circuit board (or the big solder ground anchor blobs) and pulled the high beam light bulb because that then stays on. Lights are now off, system finally hacked OK except for no high beam indicator. (Hi beams, lights all still work by the switch.) I haven't checked if lights are on automatically during the day yet.

My 1990 toyota corolla tail lights aren't working and I don't know which fuse it is.

Toyota is not consistent.
Check then all.
If any fuse has power on one side, and none on the other, then that fuse is bad.
It could easily be that both bulbs went about the same time. It happens frequently.

I have no tail or dash lights?

Check for a blown fuse on the parklight circuit, or a faulty relay on the parklight circuit (if fitted).

My 1990 toyota corolla tail lights and dash lights stopped working after i hooked up a stereo and sub and amp system...i checked the fuse and its good..i cant find any wiring anybody?

which fuse did you check. verify the wiring to the radio than comes from the light switch to the radio. if all this worked before , then it has to be work that you have done. the only link from the light switch to the radio is for inst panel dimming. first disconnect that wire and ck fuse for tail lights. make sure there is power on both sides of the fuse, use a test light.

1999 Toyota Corolla Seca - hatchback. the tail

If you put your foot on the brake, the tail lights and parking lights will still come on. Possibly your brake is sticking. Check to see if it is and if it is put WD40 for a quick fix. See a tech for them to fix your brake alignment. Good Luck!
