How do you repair tailights that do not work on a 1996 Toyota Camry SE when other lights including the turn signal do work?

Check the fuses. Do the front running lights work? Got dash lights? How about an aftermarket radio?

The problem is your light failure sensor. It's located in the trunk on the drivers side. Toyota is proud of the part too. I paid $180 for it. Good luck!

My 92 Camry V6 did the same thing. Pull the failure sensor out, open the cover and inspect for damages. If nothing is burned, check the solder joints. If solder joint is burned - most likely on the jumpers - clean the burnt parts and re-solder them or create a solder bridge between the jumpers. If any parts are burned - except the integrated or digital circuit - you can replace them. The other parts usually consist of capacitors and resistors.

It is important to know the meaning of warning lights in a car. The pictures of warning lights are found in the owners manual, repair manuals and online.

What is the nature of the problem? e.g. one light doesn't flash. No lights flash. How many individual lights/bulbs does the vehicle have where you are having trouble? Are all other lights, stop, turn, tail, on that part of the vehicle working properly?

Because there is a problem with the Anti-Lock Brake System. Not a DIY repair. Take it to a professional.

open trunk pull back the lining of the trunk and the light bulbs are there to replace.. right on the back of the light, assembly Alternate Answe:, if all three lights are not working, consider checking the brakelight switch near the brake pedal.
