Thanks for the tip on where to find the Light Failure Sensor we looked for about an hour before reading your tip and found it in seconds after. Same location color and wiring instructions apply for a 93 camry Wagon. Because Im adverse to burning bridges and am handy with a soldering iron instead of cutting the leads at the connector I took apart the senor module and shorted the corresponding pins on
I also have a 93 LE Wagon. Does this sensor also control the rear running lights My brake lights work fine but my rear running lights dont work at all. Please help I dont have much more hair to pull out...unless rogaine wants to sponsor me.
elTombre gave good advice. I did it his way using my soldering iron and restored the tail light. One trouble when I turn on the headlights the third brake light illuminates as well. Other two brake lights perform normally. My camry is a 93 sedan model and elTombres is a 92 and that could be the reason. Otherwise everything is exactly as he and supercoolang described. At least I can now be seen at night
I have a 1993 camry LE 4cylinder and recently I had all these lights the dash lights (gauges and temperature control lights) my tail lights reverse lights and parking lights all go out. The fuse is fine. We did find the lamp failure sensor box which had some corrosion and broken wires and replaced the wires and cleaned a couple other connections but still no lights. Any suggestions Would bypassing
Check the wiring harness in the trunk where it splits off to the trunk lid. The constant trunk door usage can cause the wires to break. This might also be the problem with the brake lights.
I finally checked the fuse for the brake light and found that it was fused. It changed it and now my brake lights are working. Im going to check the spot where it splits in the trunk. I would also like to check the fuse of the reverse light. Unfortunately the diagram does not show that. Is there a way to find the fuse for the reverse lights are for toyota 96 dx camry
No brake AND no tail lights Does the license plate lamp or front parkingrunning lights work If just no brake lights only check the brake switch located under the dash at the top of the brake peddle arm. Make sure the switch is working correctly. If the license plate and front running likes work and both tail and brake lights dont work obtain a voltohm meter. Use a voltmeter to check for DC voltage
Hello Joey Yes you are correct everything is working in the car except the taillights that light up when you turn on the headlights and except the brake lights when you press the brake pedal. So that would tell me there is no power getting to the brake lights not sure why though. I will look for the relay in the back it has a hatch back not trunk. The car also was just bought and only has 63k originally
The AutoZone website may have a wiring diagram in the sites self help repair section. If you have a voltmeter check for voltage and ground continuity at the bulbs. Check for voltage before and after the brake switch (operate the switch). If you dont have a voltmeter connect something up with a 12V bulb. If you have voltage after the switch (when operated) but none at the bulb might check the braketail
No brake lights work even the top mounted one brakes use the brake and Gauge fuses. Power goes to the sensor box from the brake light switch via a green wire. Determine if DC power is getting to the green wire at the box when the brake pedal is pushed. If power is going in but not coming out the red and greenred wires the sensor is bad. Shift lock uses the Cig-Radio ECU-G and Stop fuses plus brake
update I pulled the relevant fuses again to double check them. The 25A STOP fuse sparked inside when I put it back in so I wiggled it around causing it to spark randomly and the guy I work with then said dude your brake lights are on I look at the fuse block and the teeth on the bottom of the socket are spread apart not allowing contact with the fuse I bent the fuse legs apart a bit stuck it back
The reverse lights and reverse indicator dash lamp are on a separate circuits but are powered by the same fuse-Gauge fuse. brake lights system has its own circuit but tied into to a few others via the light failure sensor. Stop fuse. Suggest you recheck the wiring where it goes from the chassis to the trunk lid for damage crossed wires etc. Tends to break down due to flexing. It is possible power is

It appears that the wires were either broken or worn out when I had the dealer fix the reverse lights issue (300 later that is). Also they warned me that some relay fuse deep in the bowels of the enginetransmission compartment under the hood was close to going out and that would cost me around 500 So to avoid all these mounting costs and because it had been over a decade since I bought a new car I traded in my dependable yet needing repair 2000 camry for a brand new 2011 camry LE and I couldnt be happier about it. I got 1.9% financing for 6 years and low monthly payments. Long story short - Im now a renewed loyal toyota camry owner. Thanks for the suggestions everyone
The solenoid for the trans shifter uses the same switch as the brake lights. If you have no brake lights and the problem is the brake switch this could cause both problems no lights and locked shifter. The switch is located up under the dash you should be able to see it. The brake pedal arm triggers the switch. The switch may be bad or just need adjusting.
Do the brake lights cigarette lighter power outlet (if the car has one) and dome light work Did you check the following fuses Door Gauge Power Cig ECU-IG Stop Panel Radio 1 and Radio 2.
brake lights dont work cig lighter does not work or the dome light but the map lights do work. all the fuses are good.
Not sure given all fuses are OK. One more issue to check is the fusible links located inside a small box on the drivers side of the radiator. Stop light switch controls stop lights and shifter lock system. Both receive power form the the stop light switch then Stop fuse then 100A Fusible link the above box then a fusible link in the wire between the 100A link and battery. You stated you replaced the stop switch. Does one of the wires at the switch have 12V DC constantly Power window and instrument panel power also goes through the two fusible links. The link below provides some info on the 100A Alt fusible link 2000 camry Fusible Link - toyota Nation Forum toyota Car and Truck Forums
Do the tail lights work If so the problem is most likely the wiring to the stop light bulbs. All stop lights receive power from the same source. If not the issue may be with a grounding wire. Ground wires are WhiteBlack. Stop power wires might be Blue or GreenWhite depending on year of car.
Not up to speed on Acura thus can only guess. Guessing when you brake the electrical power going to the brake lights is feeding back into the other circuits. On a camry this might indicate a short between wires in the harness typically in the trunk where part of the harness goes to the trunk lid. The wires in this area can break do to flexing by the trunk lid action. Or the wiring around the lamp that
Determine if the brake lights are getting 12V power when the brake pedal is pushed and the socket has a good ground wire circuit. For the reverse lights check for damage in the trunk where the wire harness transitions from the chassis to the trunk lid.
Okay so I mistake. The brakes do work but the reverse lights do not. I have checked the wiring on the trunk and they all are fine. bulbs and fuses are fine but still no power to the sockets. and sorry for the late response. I came down with the flu
Look in the trans case for a switch like the ones in the link below toyota camry Back Up Light Switch - Free Shipping - Standard Beck Arnley AC Delco Make sure the switch is wired up. Power wire might be redblue. Wire to lights redblack.
See link below for photos of the switch. Click on more info for a larger photo. 1988 toyota camry Back Up Lamp Switch Follow the shift cable to the shift lever on the trans look in this area. Later model trans may have incorporated the switch into the ParkNeutralGear indicator switch located behind the shift lever.
yes the blowers were not working at all then when the ABS and brake lights went off the blowers kicked in and I was able to put the car in drive
I just bought a 98 camry LE 4cyl. The hand brake light was on when I bought it. I took it to a brake shop and found out that I needed new front brakes. They replaced the rotors pads flushed the system and cleaned and adjusted the rear brakes. The light isnt on anymore and its been a week. I believe that the light comes on when your brakes need servicing. I paid 350 for the work I described above.
Quote ORIGINAL toyomoho The 2000 and 1998 do not have systems to monitor brake wear other then the squeal tabs on the pads. If the parking brake light is on the issue is the fluid level its switch the parking brake switch or wiring. I am having the same issue on my 2000 camry. Where would I find the parking brake switch or wiring
