Re: Burnt out brake light. 97 camry XLE

fixed the problem by getting right bulb at an auto parts store.
Phillips Model 921 bulb worked great. Took the Phillips bulb out, and
put the Crappy Tire bulb back in and the dash warning came back up.

Again Phillips Model 921 bulb, bought in pack of 2 for $3.50. Works
great. I guess that sensor is pretty sensitive.

3rd brake light '99 Camry

Realizing this is a very old thread, but considering it helped my issue, thought this may help another Camry owner.

Just confirming that Jiffy Lube 921 bulb lit up but caused warning light on dash to trigger. Put in Wagner bulb 921 from CarQuest & no more warning light.
