car   Brake Light On problem 1
Failure Date: 06/29/2015

My 2007 Toyota Camry le four door automatic sedan has intermittent erratic problems with the instrument control panel: the abs and emergency brake lights come on and the tachometer, thermometer and other gauges bounce up and down this problem started two days ago, the events last for a few seconds to ten minutes, episodes occur sporadically and the car continues to drive normally during the events. I called Toyota (800) 331-4331 and asked for a warranty extension to repair the problem. I was instructed to take it to a dealer to identify the problem. On July 1, 2015, central florida Toyota in orlando, florida tried to charge me $59. 00, I refused to pay and they eventually proceeded to determine the problem without charge. The repair estimate given to me says, "$2,217. 05 for abs actuator assy. , r&r. ” the mechanic said this is serious; the brakes can lock up while I am driving. There are numerous identical complaints on the internet but Toyota corporate said this problem is not subject to a recall or a reported problem. (just google, "2007 Toyota Camry abs and brake light on". Consumer complainants allege that the bosch abs ecu has a flaw in circuit board design. ) this is very expensive problem and so common as to indicate that it is a manufacturer's defect and should be repaired free by Toyota. I am the original owner. . Read more...

car   Brake Light On problem 3
Failure Date: 04/01/2015

The car speedometer stopped working while I was driving. The needle went to zero, the tachometer fluctuates out of control up and down, the abs and brake lights come on, the lights that indicate what gear you are in turned off, the gas gauge appears to still work okay, but the mileage stops calculating although the digital display is still on just not counting mileage. I have no way to know how fast I am going or if my car will either not stop due to brake lights being on or just cut off since there seems to be some electrical malfunction. The air conditioning also stopped working. This happened the first time for about 10 minutes, then as quickly as it stopped, it started working again. It has now done this each day at multiple times during each trip for the past 3 days since the problem first started. Not knowing how fast you are going is a real safety issue and sounds like this issue has come up before with other Toyota owners and should be recalled.

car   Brake Light On problem 4
Failure Date: 03/18/2015

As I was driving and came to the stop my speedometer dropped down to zero, my tachometer keeps going up and down, the abs and brake signals light up, and my a/c seems to stop working. I researched this online and noticed that hundreds of consumers are experiencing this problem. Seems to be something to do with the abs modulator/sensor corroding. I contacted my local Toyota dealership in clovis and they said they had to start with a basic diagnosis of $129 and that this was not a recall issue. How can this not be a recall of there are hundreds of complaints!? I have a tomtom that can keep track of my speed so I'll just use this until a recall is made and this issue can be fixed free of charge.

car   Brake Light On problem 5
Failure Date: 03/15/2015

For the second time in less than a year, the brake and abs lights came on on the dashboard. The lights went out shortly after, but the abs engaged when they shouldn't, causing my stopping distance to be dramatically increased. I nearly crashed, and was forced to swerve to avoid the car ahead. Toyota has a service bulletin on this problem--it has been diagnosed, two years running, at a Toyota dealership as a corroded abs sensor. Toyota refuse to pay for labor, or create a part that is better shielded. This is dangerous. Who knows when it will go out again? I am deeply concerned for my safety.

car   Brake Light On problem 6
Failure Date: 02/19/2015

Started car and the brake and abs lights stayed on and did not go off. Then while driving to my daughters school, and the shop I was going to take the car to, my engine light came on. I picked up my daughter then went to the shop and had vehicle checked. There were had 5 codes that come up. Then went out with the mechanic to see if the speedometer was working as he asked if I noticed if it was or was not working. We took car for a quick drive to see how car was driving. The first thing I noticed was that the speedometer was not moving from zero. The lights all stayed on and the brakes were working. The rpm gauge was still going up and down. I did not have the money to do any fixing as of yet so I decided to bring the car home and park it until I can get it fixed as my mechanic said it was not safe to drive. After this I did some research on line and have found that this is a common problem on the 2007 Toyota Camry and that the hybrid model has a recall for this problem, but as of yet they have not recalled the 4 cyl or the 6 cyl which is not right as the codes are the same and the issues are the same. The right thing to do would be to recall all 2007 models before this issue causes a fatal car accident.

car   Brake Light On problem 7
Failure Date: 12/05/2014

Started the car and noticed the abs and parking brake light were on. Tachometer was jumping between 0 and 1000rpm. Air conditioner wasn't working. Drove the car a bit with no change except the tachometer jumping a bit higher than 1 and dropping back to 0. Speedometer wouldn't move at all. After a bit more driving, the abs and parking brake lights turned off and the gauges resumed normal operation. Air conditioner also started working. Since this initial problem, the gauges and lights have been operating with the same inconsistency (jumping tachometer, speedometer sitting at 0, abs and parking brake lights on).

Failure Date: 09/05/2014

Abs and brake light came on while driving also my speedometer needle does not move, and rpm gauge starts fluctuating. This occurs intermittently. I took it to the Toyota dealer they told me I have to replace the brake actuator assembly (skid control ecu) a total cost of $3,453 to fix. :( my car has only 67,750 miles. I do know the 2007 Camry hybrid is having the same problem and those are being recalled.

car   Brake Light On problem 9
Failure Date: 08/02/2014

Abs light and brake light comes on. The speedometer and odometer falling to zero, a/c sounding as if it shut down, warm air comes out.

car   Brake Light On problem 11
Failure Date: 07/18/2014

The same year and model Toyota Camry has already had a recall for the same problem in the hybrid version for the exact same part. While driving the car the speedometer goes to zero, the tachometer needle goes up and down like crazy, the ac cuts off and the temperature sensor cuts off. The parking brake light and the abs failure light come on the dashboard showing the brake system has failed. The cars does stop but with hesitation. I have no way to know if the brake light are working during the failure so I am concerned I am going to get rear ended because the driver behind me won't know I am stopping. There is no way to know if this issue will get worse and there will be a point where it will not stop. I called Toyota and opened a case #1407190530 and was told that they had no such issues showing in their database. I told them it shows up thousands of times on google and was basically told, who are you going to trust thousands of people or Toyota? I asked him to check for any notes on the model dealing with the abs ecm or the abs acuator. He told me they had none and that I had to bring it to the dealer and have them check it. This seems like a great scam for them, the car gives a code u0073 showing the problem is the abs, so the dealer gets to charge a couple of hundred dollars to run tests to then tell you the 3 inch square part cost $4000 to replace because they are the only ones that make it. You buy the part it cost them $50 to make for $4000 with labor or your don't have a car. Having read through hundred of posts online from people with the exact same issue, with the exact same part I feel that there should be a recall on these cars. Toyota has a bean counter mentality where it has figured out the number of acceptable dead and how much legal fees they can pay before it is worth fixing an issue. Deaths before the loss of profit should be the Toyota slogan.

Failure Date: 01/30/2014

I own a Toyota Camry le 2007. I am having problems with the speedometer, tachometer and temperature gauges. While in motion, they will cease to indicate proper readings and drop to zero. At the same time, the abs and parking brake warning lights turns on and stay for a duration of 10 to 30 minutes. Also the a/c goes off when these two lights turn on.

car   Brake Light On problem 18
Failure Date: 01/30/2014

While driving or idling, brake and abs light get lit and speedometer is not working, odometer is jumping up and down and heat needle is intermittently going normal/cold. The mileage meter is not working and this all goes away when those lights either reset on their own or some other way not known to me how. While driving not knowing how fast is vehicle going its very dangerous and Toyota is not doing what they should do and announce recall because there are large number of people complaining about this issue and have problem with the same. I took car to the Toyota grossinger dealer in lincolnwood IL and first time after over 4 hours there they said its only battery and positive terminal. After extensive complaining and filing the survey they decided to give another try and check again, this time took over 4 hours to find out but they did found that abs actuator needs replacement and that would be well over $4000 which is absurd because this part breaks due to extreme winter temperatures of -10f and below. Known fact that in chicago we had very hard winter this year, if not one of the strongest since we broke several records in temperature and wind chills and amount of snow fallen to the ground, with number of polar vortex weather that we couldn't control. Now we are left with faulty part that leaves us driving like that because its not easy and very possible to pay the sum of money like $4000 for one part for a car that already I paid almost $30. 000. I wish that you guys give the push to fix this problem before it causes casualties all over country like other similar problems with Toyota Camry's happened in the past.

Failure Date: 10/24/2013

I had my rear brakes installed at hollywood Toyota in October of 2013. As I left the dealership once the job was complete, my abs light, the brake light came on, my speed odometer stopped working along with my ac which started blowing hot air. I took the car back the following day and got the runaround. The Toyota mechanic said it was the alternator since it was new, and it was giving to much amps. I immediately took the car back to the place the alternator was put in. The problem still existed after going back and forth with the problem. My service tech norm franz said I would have to pay to have a diagnostic test done on the car. Of course I got mad! when I bought the car in I had no problems with the vehicle. The Sunday before my last visit to hollywood Toyota, it started raining, which caused my windows to fog up inside and me driving in a ditch because of poor visibility. Not from the outside, but from the inside everything became fogging in the interior of the car, where I either had to make contact with a car in front of me or go off into the ditch to avoid an accident from whipping the window trying to see in front of me. When, I saw hollywood Toyota not wanting to except responsibility for the actions it has caused! I contacted Toyota corporate and they in turn allowed me to take the car in for another diagnostic without cost. After leaving the dealership, the problem was no better then I took it in. But in addition to me taking it in. I went online and saw I was not the only one who had problem with the abs, brake light style coming on along with the speedometer not working. After dang near pulling what hair I have left out, I am reaching out to you to help eliminate this problem before a major accident occur and lives are lost, because someone else who's ac may not be working on the account of the electrical system failing would be a tragedy.

car   Brake Light On problem 20
Failure Date: 10/23/2013

I was driving home from work and braked to make a turn into the gate leading to my home and the brakes failed,even though the brake peddle was depressed to the floor. The car failed to slow or stop, thankfully there wasn't anyone in front of me or I would have definitely rear-ended them. The vehicle eventually stopped more than 400 meters away with me pumping the brakes! at the time vsc, abs & brake lights lit up the dash. I contacted Toyota and inquired whether they were aware of this problem and they stated emphatically "no". After running diagnostic on the vehicle, I was informed that I had to pay $3000. 00 to fix it. I couldn't afford to fix the car then so we used my daughters vehicle. Last month I paid $3200. 00 to have the car fixed! I also went online to find out if there were other people having this problem and found numerous complaints, including actual accidents and near misses like mine. There is definitely a problem with the 2007 Camry hybrid braking system and Toyota needs to issue a recall and fix the problem before lives are lost. They also need to refund those who have had to shell out this exorbitant amount of money to fix their defective part. Brakes are a necessity and these are all accidents waiting to happen! Toyota needs to held accountable . . . Yet again for their defective braking system. We definitely don't have to wait for people to die or accidents to happen before they fix the problem.

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.

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.

car   Brake Light On problem 23
Failure Date: 06/14/2013

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.

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.

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.
