Brake Light On problems of the 2007 Toyota Camry
Eight problems linked to brake light on have been reported for the 2007 Toyota Camry.
Brake Light On problem #1
The vehicle is a 2007 Toyota Camry. When approaching a stop light all of the instrument panel gauges dropped to zero, the brake and abs lights, illuminated, and the a/c stopped blowing cold air. Problem persisted for several minutes and the tachometer bounced around while the rest of the gauges remained at 0 or cold for the temperature gauge. This continues to be an intermittent problem that does not seem to be connected to travel speed, outside temperature fluctuation or any other external variations. Although currently this erratic state seems to be the new normal as it is in this state more often than it works properly. I do not know the speed that I am traveling nor do I know if my abs braking system will work should I ever be in a situation where it would be needed since the warning light is on. This is very worrisome for me but I do not have $500 for Toyota to "try" and diagnose the problem as I have been quoted for their diagnostic time. I have taken it to an independent mechanic several times and they cannot seem to rectify the problem, additionally, I cannot smog my vehicle because the shops computer cannot communicate with my car. It was Friday, Jun. 14, 2013 when this brake light on issue occurred.
Brake Light On problem #2
The vehicle was a 2007 Toyota Camry. Abs light, brake light comes on intermittently then speedometer and rpm gauges goes to zero and a/c if it is on blows warm air. This problem occurred on 07/04/13.
Brake Light On problem #3
The car involved was a 2007 Toyota Camry. About two days ago, I was driving and my instrument panel started doing some crazy stuff. The brake light and abs light came on, and my temp gauge, rpm, and odometer started fluctuating. This lasted about 30-45 seconds the first time. Since then it happens intermittently every time i¿m driving and it lasts a couple of minutes each time. I was already scheduled to go in for an oil change today, so I had the service department at my local dealer check out this problem also. The tech first quoted a $53 diagnostic fee, but called me back a couple of hours later to say that they need a more extensive diagnostic process, which would increase the fee to $99. She also said that I needed brakes and a battery ($202 front brakes+$118 battery+$89 brake fluid replace). About an hour later, she called me back and gave me the devastating news that my abs actuator/skid control computer needed to be replaced. The cost was $1686 for the part, and the total with labor would be $2035. This did not include my $40 oil change, battery, and breaks. Nevertheless, I opted to wait on the $2000 abs issue. I went to pick up my car and was actually charged $148 for the diagnostic fee. Essentially, I paid $199 for an oil change and for them to diagnose a problem that they already knew to be a common Camry problem. I would have never purchased a Toyota if I had known that this was a common problem. Also this is a Toyota specific part, so it's not like you can shop around for a deal. I have to pay this ridiculous amount of money because I don't want my children riding in an unsafe car. I a¿¿m so disgusted right now. It was August 16, 2013 when this brake light on issue occurred.
Brake Light On problem #4
As I was driving my 2007 Toyota Camry over 60 mph on the expressway, my brake light and abs light both came on. The speedometer went down to 0 speed and the rpm & temperature gauge were bouncing up & down. The ac fan also shut off. I tried the emergency brake on a parking lot and they do not work when the above mentioned happens!! I took it to Toyota dealership and they said it "seems" to be the brake actuator assembly and that repairing it will be $2500+. They did tell me that they have seen this problem before and that it is nothing I did wrong- just a "defective" part that Toyota has not recalled "yet". I foresee class-action suits/cases regarding this issue in the near future!! I am extremely disappointed at Toyota's unreliability and lack of customer satisfaction. This brake light on issue occurred Wed., Jun. 5, 2013.

Brake Light On problem #8
2007 Toyota Camry. Initially when the car was turned on the brake light, and abs light would come on along with the tachometer, speedometer would begin racing while in park. At this time the engine cooling system would go down to "c" this happened half a dozen times and it was taken to Toyota dealers. I spent 618. 00 for repairs and I was told the car was fixed. Toyota dealer also stated I was able to drive the car and there would be no problems. After spending money for repairs within 24 hours the problem began again. Now this time not only when you were in park would the lights come on the began coming on while I was driving. So I could not tell what speeds I was doing and unable to tell if I had brakes when the light came on. So it was taken back to the same dealership and this time they want to replace skid control ecu/actuator per tech line and want me to spend over 2000. 00 to fix the problem even though I have a bill of sale that states problem was fixed just days before. The failure date was Wednesday, August 18, 2010.
