nah man. Im pretty sure they're off. If you press the brake, none of lights come on? What about park lights. If not, check your bulbs and fuses.

Is it a wingless turbo? If it's NA there should be a third brake light that's at the top of the car on the inside. If that's not on, then the brake lights aren't working. Check to see if the brake light failure warning light is on in the dash. If you still can't tell, take the lights out of the hole in the trunk, and see if both filaments are illuminated on the brake lights (two middle ones). The most common problem is the relay, which should be really close to your driver side tail light.

Oh, I see it now in the second picture. Yes, your brake lights are definately not working. Check the relay and the wiring that's connected to the brake pedal to make sure that they are working. If you have a (completely forgot the name of the tool) that you jump wires with, see if you can get the lights to come on at different locations to narrow down where a short might be. If you don't have an EWD, get one. It's like $16 from the dealer, and it's worth every penny.

$16 = Electrical wiring diagram
$5 = Tail lamp failure sensor

If you're getting the sensor on ebay, I'm pretty sure it's the same as the Cressida (I think that's the one, confirmation?) and will be cheaper than those listed for the Supra usually.

mine had the same problem but it was that yellow box that goes in the back by the taillights in the driver side. hope you get yours working right.

^^No dude, there are two filaments in each stop bulb. With parking lights on, one filament in each bulb is lit, and when you hit the brakes the second filament is illuminated. If there's no change in illumination when you hit the brakes, try changing the taillight failure sensor.
