Everything is ok. The engine start using the emergency procedure. Una
ble to shift in gear due to the brake lights not working. I guess it controla the transmission so ypu can put it in gear. Wondering wheres the brake light fuse located. I only have 10,000 miles on it

Try this, turn the ignition on, put the transmission in neutral, then start the engine and put it into gear. It's possible it's just the brake light switch, but check the brake light fuses as well. Vehicle is under warranty unless it is a salvage or flood vehicle, so Toyota roadside assistance could come out and help you out. I would get it back to the dealer asap since it is under warranty and let them look at the brake light switch and fix any power issues if it's not the switch. Does that answer your questions? thank you.

Just blown brake fuse. Thank you

Alright, check the brake lights a few times now, sometimes a bulb can cause the fuse to blow but if the lights work everytime now it's possible you could have just had a weak fuse. Thank you and let us know if you have any further questions.
