Default 1993 Camry Tail Lights Issue

My tail lights won't come on, but rear side parking lights, licence
plate lights and stop lights all come on. Somewhere I found that there
has to be a yellow sensor switch that can be bypassed. Tried searching
both left and right sides of the trunk but no luck. Any ideas where
exactly is this switch on 1993 Camry, or any wiring diagrams???
Thanks in Advance.

Not sure what the switch is, but the usual culprit is the wiring at the
point of the trunk hinge. With repeated opening/closing the wires
eventually fray or break. Check in the harness and see if a ground wire is
broken.

The sensor is behind the carpeted covering.
But first, check the wiring at the trunk hinge - flexing can cause a wire to break.

I had the same problem in my 90 camry. I found the little yellow box
on the left side of the trunk(on left wall) under the rug or plastic.
I shorted it out when I put the wrong bulb in. It was all melted and
black inside. I went to the junkyard and picked one up for ten bucks
and problem solved. Good luck.
