Default no brake lights on 89 camry

My brake warning light has come on and none of my brake lights are
working (normal tail lights work). Bulbs look okay. I read that a
common problem is the lamp failure relay. I checked the voltage there
and it was 0.1 V when the brakes were off and 12 V when the brakes were
pressed. This led me to the conclusion that the brake switch (another
common problem) was okay and that most of the circuitry was intact. I
read that you can bypass the lamp failure relay (connect green wire to
light green and green/red to green/white). I did this but I still have
no brake lights. Can anyone confirm that this is the correct way to
bypass the relay? Also, does anyone know the exact position of the fuse
for the brake lights (why is this not in the manual)? Any other
suggestions for what else to check? How do I know if there is a
grounding problem?

In desperate need of help. Don't want to get ripped off by mechanic!

Also check bulbs, never assume a bulb is good by a visual as they can have a
break where you can't see it or sometimes a break is hard to see in a
filament.
