Default 99 Camry stop light probs.

It started when I pinched(and frayed) the wires to the trailer in the
trunks locking mechanism. I had sucessfully blown a fuse and the left
marker light and brake light itself blew. And the rear light failure
button on the dash is showing.

I have replaced the light bulbs and fuse that I knew blew. And
repaired the wiring harness for the trailer. Everything works again -
except when I depress the brake pedal. i.e. turn signal, reverse
lights, rear running lights, and marker lights work. Only no bright
brake lights.

I need some assistance here...my fuse is gonna blow soon.

From memory there is a box in the boot that controls the brake light on the
dash.
You have probably blown the brake light circuit on that. There is a link
that has the required resistance to make the brake lamp on the dash glow
when one stop light bulb is faulty.
If you short out where the link was, the brake lights will work, but the
brake lamp on the dash will too.
The box will need replacing.

I think you've lost a ground in the brake lights, causing the current to
backfeed into the other lights to find a ground. I suggest you go over your
wiring again to see if you find a bad or missing ground.
