Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 3 months ago.

Hello and welcome to just answer. I value your input so I may help you better. Have you checked for power to the rear lights?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
There is no power to the rear of the car
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 3 months ago.

Ok thanx for that info. If you remove the lower left kick plate cover under the dash you will find a connector to the rear wiring, check to make sure you have power there wheb you activate the brakes and tail lights.

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 3 months ago.

Another issue may be the lamp failure sensor. Its a little red box on the drivers side of the trunk underneath the trunk limning My brake lights worked but my taillights did not work. Also, the lamp failure indicator light on the dash will not come on if this is the case since it is the failure sensor that is blown. Its something like $300 from lexus to replace.

Hi good day I know I take so long to talk to you but I scand the car and it was saying the brakes switch fult
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 3 months ago.

perhaps the brake switch may be faulty but it will not efect the tail lights because that is a separate circuit.

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 3 months ago.

It may say brake light switch but that shouldn't effect the tail lights. Did you do as I suggested in checking for power at that connector in the kick panel ? that will tell us if the problem is in the front of the vehicle or to the rear. we have to start to eliminate areas.
