car   Brake Light On problem 1
Failure Date: 05/28/2016

Periodically when driving or at a stop, the speedometer goes to zero, the emergency brake and abs lights go on, temperature gauge occasionally goes to cold, and the tachometer gauge fluctuates. Toyota dealer says it's the brake actuator ecu which, just for the part, runs around $2000. I see a recall for the hybrid but not my model and noticed other owners complaining about the same issue on the web. My car is only worth about $5000. I have owned Camrys in the past but this is the first time I have any real issues with this year model. I have a 1989 that is still running with almost 350,000 miles on it. My present vehicle only has a little over 160,000.

While running (sitting still or moving) the dashboard gauges will go crazy. The speedometer will go to 0, the brake and abs lights will come on and the rpm may bounce around. The temp gauge may also drop to c. Otherwise, the car appears fine. This can happen at any time (engine cold or warm, driving in city or highway). The length of the episodes vary from a second (or less) to 20+ minutes. From a little research, I can tell other Toyota Camry (around the same year) owners have also encountered this issue.

I was driving my 2007 Toyota Camry le and the abs and brake lights came on and the rpm gauge bounce around and speedometer stops working and stays on zero and I have read a lot of complaints and should be a recall on the problem and Toyota should be held responsible for this happening to a lot and several 2007 Toyota vehicles like the Camry. My name is james sexton my cell is 901-417-2817.

Failure Date: 01/23/2016

The abs and brake lights of my Toyota 2007 Camry come on and off intermittently. When the lights are on, the whole dashboard readers; the speedometer, rpm, engine temperature and other gauges jump and flicker, the light markers for transmission gear and parking go off. The ac unit also did not work. I went to dealer to get it checked out but there were no codes to diagnose the issue. I was told to come back again when it happens for longer than a day. It keeps happening at various times of the day (morning and evening), when the car is stopped or moving, and on all types of roads and driving conditions (city streets, highway, at a stop light, at a stop sign, when I am turning). I have noticed that Toyota has already issued a recall for the same issue for the 2007 Camry hybrid. Given the sheer number of complaints I have read about this issue for the regular Camry 2007, it seems ridiculous that Toyota has not issued a recall for this for the 2007 Camry.

Vehicle having problem with abs module. Same as many other complaints on NHTSA website. At random times, brake and abs lights come on and speedometer drops to zero. May last for one or several minutes and eventually returns to normal. Alternates between functioning and not but has been malfunctioning more than it works. Mechanic diagnosed problem as abs module. Brakes seem to be functioning correctly but not sure if working in abs mode. Based on complaints on website, can't believe NHTSA has not forced a recall.

Failure Date: 10/26/2015

This morning I was taking my kids to school driving in a straight line under 30 mph on a neighborhood paved road. As I was approaching the 4 way stop, my dash read "check vcs system" plus all these light came on my dashboard such as a brake light, a circle with an exclamation, a few other lights that im not sure what they are and my brakes were extremely difficult to stop . I ended up rolling through the 4 way stop and was able to stop on the side of the road in a ditch. I was able to drive back to my house going very slowly and with an extremely large amount of space to stop. I then took my car to a local auto parts store to read the codes but they were unable to read them because it was not an engine code. On my way back to the house, all lights disappeared and the local Toyota shop said it would be difficult to do a diagnostic without any lights. I am extremely thankful my kids and the kids walking across the cross walk at the four way stop were not injured!.

I called Toyota (800) 331-4331 and asked for a warranty extension to repair the problem, denied by Toyota. 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.

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.

Failure Date: 06/07/2015

On April 1, 2015, I reported that brake and abs lights came on frequently and the air conditioner goes off. Since that time, I have also noted increased stopping distances when having to stop fast. I am concerned that in an emergency stopping situation, the abs will not work properly which will cause a crash. As I reported previously, the dealership indicates they have no knowledge of the problem, but this is hard to believe in light of all the entries on the internet. Also, there has been a recall for the Camry hybrid for the same issue.

car   Brake Light On problem 12
Failure Date: 05/15/2015

The primary safety concerns regarding my complaint are a malfunctioning speedometer and a malfunctioning anti-lock braking system; however, there are others, which I will describe. While I was driving home, the instrument panel went completely crazy. Specifically, the speedometer went to zero (as I was driving 40mph) the tachometer started bouncing up and down between 0 and 2 or 3, the brake and abs light came on. Then, everything went back to normal before I could pull over. I soon realized additional problems like the temp gauge going limp and the air conditioner blowing hot air along with other things. All of this happened all together but on and off at random intervals. I did some research, which led me to the abs issue. According to others with the same problem the repair is $2k-$3k and many had stories of dealers making various costly repairs that didn¿t fix the problem. I work for minimum wage, this is my only car, and it is 110 degrees in my town. Driving without air conditioning here is a safety hazard. One person suggested unplugging the faulty abs module to regain air conditioning. When I did this the air conditioning did in fact start working along with the tachometer and temp gauge. The speedometer, odometer, and seat belt alarm still do not work. Furthermore, this is no longer intermittent but constant and the brake light, abs light, and check engine light all remain on. An abs malfunction could be disastrous in wet weather. The lack of a speedometer is a safety problem on city roads for obvious reasons and not to forget the seat belt alarm or the odometer, which no longer logs the mileage. My 2007 Camry had low miles for its age (<70k) when these problems first occurred; the car has been garaged and well maintained. I have read many other complaints from those with the very same problems and it seems like a faulty product is to blame.

Failure Date: 05/08/2015

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Camry. While driving approximately 25 mph and attempting to make a left turn, the steering wheel seized and the vehicle failed to stop. As a result, the contact crashed into a street light and the air bags failed to deploy. The contact also stated that the brake warning light illuminated. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. A police report was not filed and there were no injuries. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 138,000.

car   Brake Light On problem 14
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.

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.

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.

While driving down the road at around 45mph. All of a sudden. My abs and brake light indicators light up. My speedometer dropped down to 0. My gauges jumping around. My speed in actuality didn't go down to 0. And, my car didn't stall or cut off. But, if it had. I could have been ran over by a semi truck or another vehicle. Prior to this happening, my tire sensor light was on. I took to the dealership, and they said once the tire sensor was fixed, the other would go away. I had tire sensor fixed. The lights went off for a brief period. But, back on again at interval times. The car also seems to want to cut off when idling at red lights. When I googled the problems online. It seem Toyota cars of all makes and years are having the same exact problem. I am taking back to the dealership once again.

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.

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).

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 23
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.

Abs and brake lights came suddenly on and the speedometer stopped working. I tested the break and I had to push hard to make it work. I was on the highway and at 65 mph. I got really scared and after a while everything came back to normal. It happened again today and happening frequently.
