    Just yesterday I was informed my tail lights were out. So of course I check the bulbs and they are good, I checked the fuse and it's good. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Check the brake light switch at the brake pedal. Connection and adjustment.

    I've checked all the possible fuses, even put new lights in and still nothing. I've made an appointment at the Toyota dealer to be fixed. It's weird my brake lights work when pressed which is the same bulb.

    After doing more research on this I had no idea about the little fuse box right behind the hood release latch. There is a fuse labeled Tail 15amp fuse and this was blown. They are working!!

    Glad that you found your problem. I must not be very observant. I didn't notice any fuse box behind the hood release latch. Now I know.

    I'm glad I did as well. I had no idea it was there but there it was. Hopefully this helps others with similar issues.
