    Same problem, have 7 volts at 3rd brake light connector and 7 volts at noise condensor conector above fuse box and ground is good. Problem is intermittent but happens frequently. I have battery voltage when problem is not present. Suspect voltage drop at MICU or fuse box but don"t have proper diagrams with component/ conector locations.

    Having the same problem with my 04 TL. What do I do?

  • Anonymous Feb 28, 2009

    I have the same problem with the break lights. Sometimes I step on the break and you can tell it is not as bright as it should be. Then other times I step on it and it is super bright. This included both the taillights and upper mounted light.

    The clock is mounted on a valance over the kitchen window and sink. I am quite mechanically minded. I do wiring to code, plumbing, build custom cabinets for people. Drag raced cars, and race sailboats. This clock has me stumped.
    Thank you. Al

I had the same problem with my 2004 TL, and it was the brake light switch. It is very easy to replace. (10 min) I ordered one from Rockauto.com for only $6.95. To replace: Remove the black cover under the steering wheel, down by the fuses (held in place by rubber pins and clips - no screws) Locate the switch on the arm of the brake pedal. Unplug the switch, twist the old switch out and install the new one - it's simple!

    I had same probiem.
    No one had a switch in stock locally.
    So i took switch out and found it is modular type and I was abble to take it apart and clean all contact points.
    They can be removed from housing with small needle nose pliers.
    all told took twenty minutes.

Check the brake light switch.  I have only seen this once, but that is what it was.  Very intermittent.

Tail lights work but not brake lights 93 toyota camry


The brake light side of the bulbs is powered by the brake switch and travels thru the turn signal switch.
If the third brake light works, I would guess the problem is in the turn signal switch.

Since the high mounted brake light works you know that the brake light switch is working. Now you need to check the brake light bulbs in the rear tail light assemblies. The brake lights are separate from the tail light (parking or running lights). There are two screws that hold the rear light assemblies in place.

sounds like wireing is shorted together. you need to trace down wires and check for bad spots in wireing. also be sure and check plug if you are set up for trailer lights.

Tail break lights don't work. Window break light does work however. Bulbs have been replaced.


Check the brake light fuse. The high mounted brake light (third brake light) is on a different circuit than the brake lights. Hope this helps.
