What should I look for when a 1988 Camry's brake lights dont work?
If the brake light indicator is on in the dash and none of the brake light light but, then check 1st the bulbs, 2nd the Check Fuses at drivers right foot, if the fuse is good as was my case now you have to think.
Oh 3rd, "Toyota Light Failure Switch" located in the trunk under the antenna (mine is yellow) should be a box about the size of a tape-measure. Re-move it, by de-pressing top 'button' and sliding toward outside of trunk/car (can be a pain!)
See page 16 in:
This shows there the "Light Fail Sensor" is located.
If this switch is our trouble you can make the BREAK LIGHTS work by shorting the green-white and the green-red wires together. ( I used a paper clip jammed into the connector.)
The indicator light will still be on but the break lights will work!!!
This switch should have been RECALLED the safety device they built keep your break lights on, fails and takes out ALL the brake lights!! But other then that the Camry is great!
Oh, #4 if the brake lights don't work but the indicator is on check the switch on the brake petal.
#5 Well if anyone can think of a #5 to check please add it.

What could cause left brake light and tail light to not work when brake pedal is depressed with head lights on while with head lights off brake lights and blinkers work ok on 1988 ford econoline van?
Look under the dash on the driver's side, half way down the brake pedal. When you depress the brake pedal, the pedal moves away from this switch, which allows the brake light pedal circuit to complete, and your brake lights come on. This brake light switch is always hot/on, as required by federal law, so that even with no key in the ignition, if you hit your brake pedal, the brake lights will come on.

What causes the brake lights not to work on a Chevy Corsica 1988 and the turn signals not to work also?
u need to replace flasher can in your vehicle This could happen if flasher had hazzard flasher "on" and could be broken so it will not turn off. (I assume center brake light still works) if so, need new flasher switch in steering colum or find a way to rewire brake lights from brake light switch to rear lights. This is just a guess. Be sure brake light switch is OK.

1988 Honda Accord and you switched the brake light swith behind the pdeal and the Brake lights still stay on Any other ideas The taillights are not staying on?
Answer if the lights remained on you may have a short in the system.(short to ground) Wilke339's answer: The tip of the brake light switch is supposed to land on a tiny rubber pad. This will deteriorate and break into small crumbs which you will find on the floor of the car. When it falls out, the tip of the brake light switch now goes in to that hole, and nothing presses against it to…
Why would the tail lights brake lights and speedometer lights in a 1988 Toyota Camry LE not work when the fuses and bulbs are all good?
The Toyota Camry has a weakness with tail lights and break lights. The Camry uses a sensor, called the "Lamp Failure Indicator Sensor", and if it burns out, you will lose your tail lights, or brake lights, or both. This sensor is a small 2 inch box, which comes in different colours, like yellow, white, grey, for example. It is located in the trunk, driver side. You have to lift up the coverings, and it…
