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 is attached to the wire harness. If you can find it, just unclip it and remove it from the car. Then, open the back of the box, and check the circuit. If there are burn marks, or some wires are broken, then that's the problem. A brand new sensor can cost 200 to 300 dollars. You might find one at the wreckers. They usually charge 5 to 10 dollars.
