Default Light blub warning light

I've got a 96' Camry with what I believe is some sort of light bulb sensor
problem. The orange "light bulb out" warning light comes on intermittently.
When this lights up, I check all of the parking, tail and brake lights and
all are working fine. The warning light goes out when I shut off the car
and restart it.

Anyone out there got any ideas on diagnosing this problem? I'm fairly
competent with a meter and not afraid to dig into this. I just need some
direction.

Thanks,
Tim

Check the wiring harness that flexes at the trunk hinge - common
problem.

Do you have a 2 way radio in the car?
The sensor gets confused by too much RF.

No 2 way radio. Just a trunk mounted Cd player with an in-line fm
modulator.

Where is the sensor located?

its called a tailight indicator it a yellow box located in the trunk left
side behind the carpet now also it can be fooled we get it alot the third
brake light is replaced with the wrong bulb the bulb works but the
indicator measures the resistance of the bulb and it says its bad even
though they work also you may haved a bulb going bad do this turn you car
on then hit the brakes and see if it comes on if not then turn the head
lights on see if it comes on if not put it in reverse this will hwlp
narrow it down which bulb is out or it could be your sensor they have been
know to go bad
