Check the tail light bulbs. These bulbs do double duty. Thet are both the tail light & the brake light. Tail light part might be burnt out.

Your brake lights are not working in a 1992 Toyota celica and the fuses globes and brake pedal switch are fine what else can it be?

Brake bulbs. You might need to replace them. It just happened to mine and it was tricky to do it. To take the brake lights you need to pull them from the sides, there is a small piece that would come out easily and then you can just take the screws out.

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.

How do you change the rear brake lights on a 2001 Toyota RAV4?

Open the back of your Rav4, on both sides of the back from the inside, there will be a plastic cover over where the brake light would be, gently take that off and you can see the brake lights from there. Just twist the harness that the bulb is in and the bulb should just pop out. Good luck.

Why on a 1987 Toyota Camry when the headlights are on the brake lights are always on but go off when you press on the brakes?

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.
