I forget what it was called but it was bright yellow and the size of a pack of cigarettes..repeated havoc till I found that in the circuit and swapped it
I had this happen in the same gen Camry - a cold solder joint in the board of the 'brake light computer', high up inside the trunk on the left side. Once soldered, it worked fine again.
I don't believe the Corolla has this. The Camrys had a "brake light out" indicator and the corollas did not. I could be wrong though.
