SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

SOURCE: 1999 toyota avalon horn works intermitely

I would suggest to you to have the spiral cable (or 'clockspring') replaced. This is the electrical unit that transfers power to the air bag, the horn and the cruise control.

It is located right under the seering wheel.

Your description of the issue indicates to me that your spiral cable is loose, and making intermittant contact. If the vehicle had an air-bag deployment, this cable-device should have been changed.

My 98 toyota avalon dashboard light sensor is on. I checked all my lights and they are working. Is there any light that I should check?

Pull the rear bulbs out an inspect them for dark marks on the glass or abnormalities in the filament.
A bulb that works but is on the verge of failing will trigger the indicator on the dash as well.
Failing that, the lamp failure module is very common to fail, triggering the light as well. You can pry the box lid off and usually see burn marks on the circuit board when this happens.
The lamp failure module is located behind the left rear tire area in the trunk.

Light bulbs are burned out in the dash board

Yes they can, if you know how to remove your instrument panel. I honestly can not help you with exact instructions but a Google search for "replace Instrument panel bulbs in 98 avalon" should help you find exact directions, if not you can buy a subscription for your exact model car at for 20.00 and it is well worth the cost if you maintain your own car and want to save lots of money! I use it daily! I hope I have helped you find a solution to your problem & MERRY CHRISTMAS
