    Two different parts could be affecting your camry First there's a tail light relay Napa part # ECH AR 191 then the brake light switch located on your brake pedal Napa part # ECH SL 357 ( no cruise control ) ECH SL 358 ( with cruise control ) Maybe this will help.

    Camry's can have a problem with the rear taillight wiring harness breaking near the trunk hinge. Opening and closing the trunk eventually fatigues the wires. Inspect the harness in that general area. If the harness wires have broken, they can generally be repaired (harness replacement not required.

    I have a 1990 Toyota Camry, and, yes, it is for me the wiring harness under the truck lid, left hand side, for mine anyway. I had no license plate lights or back up lights. I read the problems here, and took one's advice, and checked the trunk harness 1st. I fixed it in about an hour, maybe less. I had at least some wires to clean up, trim the ends on all of the wires. I took my time, because I had gotten pulled over for no license plate lights. The cop was cool about it, in Bradenton, Fl. He didn't give me a ticket just a verbal warning. He said it'd be a $116 ticket if he had given me one. So, check that 1st, take your time fixing them. These wires are brittle for the most part. It gets hot in there, and from 1990, etc, to present day, yeah, those wires will break. And all of those years opening and closing the trunk, those wires are eventually going to quit on ya. While your at it, check the bulbs too, on the whole car. Tail lights, etc, I did. Good luck.
