The brake lamp switch is shorted and is staying on. Locate the switch on the brake section and replace. This is the reason that there is no change whne the brakes are pressed and the brake lamps are not through any switch but is connected directly. They may look like the tail lamp but it is the brake lamp that is ON.
So check this out., locate the brake switch to replace.

You should as a first step examine the wiring loom where it attaches to the trunk lid hinge. Camrys of that era became well known for fraying and breaking of the wiring in that spot. You may have a breakage or short circuit.

Tail lights not working, changed fuse and both bulbs.

If they are not working, meaning when you step on your brake pedal, then it is your brake light switch.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the wiring connector at the switch.
  3. Remove the switch lock nut.
  4. Remove the switch.
  5. Install the switch and adjust it so the brake lights are not on unless the brake pedal is depressed.
It's located right behind the brake pedal.

99 neon running tail lights do not work but tail lights work when brakes are

what you are seeing is the bright filament on the bulb working,
the tail light bulbs have two filaments in each bulb,one is dim and one is bright,the bright one is to the brake and turn signals,that way when you step on the brake with the tail lights on the same lens light up brighter to warn drivers behind you..
you need to check the fuses in the car for tail lights first,see if your plate light is on that will tell you the bulbs are just blown

Tail lghts/brake lights

Isn't that mysterious? It took me a few weeks to figure it out. Look carefully under the break pedal. There is this device called a "break light switch". I hope that helps.
