Which terminal should l disconnect first?

Where can i find lamp failure module in 2002 toyota highlander? My right rear brake light doesn't have power, i tested on the terminals without the bulb and housing. The park light terminal has power, but the other terminal (brake) doesn't have power even when brake pedal is pressed. Do you happen to know where exactly can i find or how to reveal the brake lights junction (presumably somewhere between the fuel filler lid and left brake light housing)?

On an all wheel drive 2002 Highlander. Rear hubs and bearings were replaced approximately 20k miles ago. Needing to again be replaced.

Just wondering if a faulty brain box can make the engine to be firing on its own irregularly, causing the rpm to be going up and down when not engaged but when it is engaged with my leg on the break pedal,the rpm comes down to the first mark thereby causing the engine not to steam normally.Also intermittently the car will fire itself and then becomes normal and then goes back to steam irregularly with the rpm dropping again.But when the car accelerate,it seems ok.

When I keep my foot on the gas gently it keeps running, if I lift off it dies. I kept my foot on it to see if warming up the car would do anything and then it worked. What is happening? My mechanic couldn't find a problem because he needs it to be in this state before he can fix it. Then charged me to tell me he couldn't do anything!

The VSC, Trac system does not respond to switch. It stays "off." Any suggestions?

the squeaking goes away in a minute or 2..
