Thank you! Yes, it was a switch close to the break pedal. In fact the switch was fine, it was just a silly rubber disc thing that pushes the switch (what a stupid design).

Just to clarify for others, this switch is inside the car, below the steering wheel (which is a relief because you don't need to fumble around in the engine bay!).

Check the brake switch located just above the brake petal it is probably hung up-you will need a flashlight to see it, and it is attached to the brake petal linkage.

SOURCE: LED Brake Lights diming

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!

SOURCE: Right tail light not working when pressing brake w/ lights on.

There should be at least 2 bulbs in the light assembly. One light is the light that is on when you turn on your headlights with out the brake pressed, the other light only lights up while you press on the brake. Make sure you are replacing the correct bulb. You may have been replacing the bulb that stays on. Your lights may be set up to turn off the light that stays on when the headlights are on while pressing the brakes.

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.

Break light problem


Do you know if the brake light bulbs are working? (are the bulbs good?). (the bulbs have two parts, one for brake lights the other for running lights)
If the third brake light bulb is working the brake lights should be with good light bulbs.
