Customer Question
Brake lights won't turn on...
Brake lights won't turn on. Replaced Brake Light switch. That did not correct the problem. Cannot find brake light fuse on my 2004 corolla le in the fuse box inside the engine. There is no fuse box behind the dash. Help!
JA: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?
Customer: Level at the line within the cylinder.
JA: Are you fixing your Corolla yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes. Replaced brake light switch.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just need advice on where to find the fuse!!!

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. The brake light fuse is most likely blown. This fuse is under the dashboard, on the driver side. It is not easy to see unless you are able to illuminate the underside of the dash on the driver side with a good light.

Have attempted to find it there without success. Is it in a fuse block or inline with the wiring/wire harness? Previously, searched for a fuse block shown on other websites however, did not see anything in the area that resembled same. Advise Please Oh Be Wan (-:

At the front edge of the dash. To the left of the driver's left knee if they were sitting in the LF seat. Not "under the dash", like far back, right under the dash at the front edge. Left side. Look up from being upside down in the footwell.

Above the removable plastic panel above the driver's knees. Remove this panel for a better visual aspect.

Found Fuse panel. Replaced STOP and TAIL light fuses. Did not resolve the problem. Could it simply be a faulty or burned out bulb? What do you suggest I do next?
Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 4 months ago

Replace bulbs. If that does not work then check for power in the brake lamp socket with a 12 volt test light while a helper is pressing the brake pedal.
