Default 1994 Camry wiring problem


I am working on a 1994 Camry, 4 cylinder with auto transmission, 167,000

The exterior lights warning on the dash came on and I quickly traced it
to a break in one of the wires that comes through the trunk opening at
the hinge on the driver side, (U.S. models).

I spliced in a new piece of wire, wrapped it all up, and it was OK for
about a year.
Now the light is back on, and I can see where the wiring has been
stressed and abraded from rubbing against the metal piece that is part
of the gasket and is exposed as it wears out.

I went ahead and spliced in a good length of wire for all 4 of them,
with the idea of putting a plastic strip around everything after
heat-shrinking the new connections, and then repairingf or replacing the
trunk gasket that is cutting on the wires.

The problem now, is that the light is till on, and now the reverse light
is coming on when I hit the brake. The brake lights still operate
properly and the reverse back-up lights do not come on.

The only parts of the wiring that I have not replaced or checked is a
very hard area to get to with an electric line break sensor.

I have checked the fuses and they look fine and have checked my splice
connections and everything looks tight, though not yet sealed up except
with electrical tape which I planned to replace with heat-shrink units
for elctrical wiring..

Any ideas?
