Any time you have an strange problem with lights it is a poor ground. Your tail lights are back feeding through the brake lights instead of going to ground. I would start by running a jumper wire to the tail light and brake light ground and I would guess the problem would be fixed. You might also want to look at your break light failure indicator. It commonly goes bad in these models.

On a 91 Camry should the brake lights come on as tail lights when you turn on lights or remain out until brakes are applied even if lights are turned on?

In the back should be tail lights which always come on when the headlights or parking lights are on, and stoplights which come on whenever the brakes are pressed. The stoplights should be brighter than the tail lights, but they should be separate.

What causes the brake lights on when headlights are on in Toyota Previa 94?

you have bad contact in ground cable of the brake lights You might also like to check that there has not been a bulb replacement lately that uses a single contact in a double contact socket. This would have the effect of shorting the brake and tail light inputs and thus turn on ALL lights when brakes are applied or the parking lights turned on.

Why do the brake lights on a 2000 4Runner barely come on when the headlights are turned on?

The brake lights should not come one until you step on the brakes. The tail lights should come on when the headlights are on. If they're weak, maybe there's dirt in/on the lenses or maybe the bulb is old and clouded. Change the bulbs and see if that improves things.
