For KHLow2008: I'm absolutely positive, 200% sure it is the brake light always ON when the light switch is on, if I turn the light switch off, everything goes off but the brake lights doesn't have to turn ON just because I turn the light switch ON.
Is there any tail light relay, where is it located in a Toyota Corolla 1996?
For fixitmr: As I said in the beginning, I repaired the CS way after the BRAKE light issue came up. The turn signals don't use the same bulb with the brakes. The brake bulbs are the same as the tail lights (two filaments, one for tail light and two for brakes.
I have noticed that this malfunction is turning on and off on itself. Sometimes it starts after applying the brakes, another times just by turning the light switch ON and also sometimes turns off whenever it wants. I guess what you said: "obviously the signal for tail light is bleeding into brake light circuit. So the question is where is this occurring and what caused it." Is the million dollar question but I have no clue as to where it's occurring or what caused it. It's really crazy, please help, I already got a warning from a cop.
