Toyota Camry owners have reported 31 problems related to brake abs warning light (under the service brakes category).
I was driving the Camry when I reached a complete stop my check engine light came on, didn't really notice any change, two days later I notice gas consumption has increased. I took the Camry into dealer, dealer diagnosed the check engine to be a faulty O2 sensor. Replaced O2 sensor and drove off to pick up my kids from school, as we are driving home, I came to a traffic light, I stopped and check engine light and abs light came on idle was disrupted briefly. I proceeded and when trying to stop car the brake pedal had become very tight to were I had to stomp on brakes with all my might to get car to stop. Drop kids off at home waited 15 minutes and started vehicle, abs light was off but check engine remained on, brake pedal was almost back to normal. I drove car to dealer again, the dealer said it is a faulty brake booster which is allowing too much air into system which in return signals for more fuel to be pumped to compensate vacuum leak. Brake booster not covered under extended warranty, and very costly 1,363. 16 parts, labor and taxes, not counting the 4 day rental. This concerns me because I beleive this to be a safety issue, if it were my wife driving the Camry with my kids she would not be able to stop the vehicle without any warning. Toyota needs to make this a safety recall before something tragic happens. I looked at Toyota forums and it seems I'm not alone, brake booster for several other Toyota models have gone bad, after 100,000 miles some at 70,000. 2007 Toyota Camry seems like a horrible guinea pig car.

The brake and abs indicator light started to come on intermittently. I checked the brake fluid container and it was extremely low. I added brake fluid. This concerned me because I had my car serviced less than two months and felt they should have noticed that the fluid level was low. The brake and abs indicator light continued to come on intermittently. I took my my car to the dealership; a diagnostic test was performed and I was informed that I needed to replace the brake actuator. Total cost was $2,086. 40. Since I've had the brake actuator replaced, I've noticed that the delayed brake response no longer exists.
Abs light came on, speedometer. Odometer, and a/c stopped working. Problem continues intermittently. Internet research indicates that this is a widely known problem with this year model and repairs are extremely expensive. Seeking repair through recall. This is a safety issue. Please advise if recall has been or will be initiated. Thank you.
When driving brake and abs light comes on and speedometer goes to 0 mph also ac stop working. Went to a Toyota dealer they say it's the battery. Tested the battery got 12v, told them I'm not stupid. Toyota forum shows a lot of people having the same problem. What Toyota waiting for to place a recall for this problem that can be fatal ?.

I actually just bought a used 2007 hybrid Camry last Monday. There were no indicators on the dash and it looked great. 2 days later the check vsc system and abs lights come on the dash. I took to the dealer immediately and the problem is the same as everyone else here, failure in brake accumulator. The technician was very adamant about me parking the car immediately until repairs are completed. He said the brakes can go out at any time, vehicle is unsafe to drive. The repairs are going cost over $1500.
For two years now, the "check vsc" light will come on intermittently. It has happened both when I am in motion as well as stationary. At that time, several other lights on the cluster such as the abs light will come on. The brakes become very sluggish but I can ultimately stop the car. The warning lights will eventually go out, usually after I turn off the car and restart it. Once the warning lights are off, the brakes work normally. The brakes are now making a barking sound when depressed. My mechanic says I need a new abs system which will cost thousands of dollars.

Customer states abs light on, (dealer) diagnostic code c1391, abnormal leak in accumulator. Recommend replacement of accumulator and brake flush. $3642. 00 inc. Tax. Part is described as accumulator/hydraulic control/ecu assembly, part number 44050-30660, by dealer. (foregoing provided by service invoice at date/time of diagnosis, 02/05/2014). (awaiting possible action by NHTSA as a safety related matter).
The first incident, the abs light came on, I turned off the car and started it again it stayed on and when I got on the road, I had to press the brakes all the way to the floor to get the car to stop. The next time, it did the same thing and after driving a while it will just release and the brakes will be back to normal. I took it to the dealership and they couldn't find anything wrong the first time because the light was off. The next time the light came on I brought it back but by the time they got the car to the back to test, the light was off again and they can't get the computer program to give an error message again. The third time, I brought it in and he came to the lane and tested it and told me it was the brake system accuator, like so many others I have been reading about. Each time this happens I have to push the brakes all the way to the floor to stop, I'm afraid I may be on the highway going a faster speed when it happens and have an accident. At this point, the car has disengaged the air bags so if there is an accident the air bags will not engage, which is another concern. $2200. 00 to repair, nearly 10% of the cost of what I paid for the car. I drive two teenage girls, my daughter and an International student who resides with us and I worry constantly about the brakes failing while we are driving due to this safety issue that I feel like Toyota should fix because of the high rate of failures. I've been saving for the repair but haven't gotten it all yet.

The abs light on my 2008 Toyota Camry came on on Monday, June 24th. The ac started blowing warm air, and the rpm and temperature gauges started fluttering. Stadium Toyota in tampa, FL had me bring it in and diagnosed that the abs actuator had gone out. This backfeeds electricity into the entire vehicle. I did some research online and have found this is a fairly common problem on Toyotas. I have to pay $2300 for the repair, which is for a computer of which I had nothing to do with it malfunctioning. The abs is obviously one of the most important features, and I can't imagine everyone can afford it. Is Toyota setting up the roads to be filled with vehicles without abs?.

I bought this car new and have had nothing but trouble since leaving the lot. Biggest issue being in April 2012 began having issues with car burning/loosing oil. Car would loose 1 quart or more with in 200 miles. Have taken it to mechanicsville Toyota on different occasions and had a oil consumption test done only to be told I need to replace the motor and it is not covered under warranty not only due to mileage but not being a loyal customer and not having my service work done there. My husband is a mechanic and has done all the service work by the book. My issues happen at various speeds where the car will jerk, shake, accelerate and decelerate while the abs light, traction control light comes on and the check engine light comes on and will blink well over 20 times before staying lit. I had to drive around with a case of oil in my car never knowing when I would need to add. I have had to borrow a car from my family as I no longer feel safe driving this one. It can at any given moment leave me or just stall while driving. I have kept detailed notes from going back and forth to the dealer. As you can see by the other complaints this is a know problem with Toyota with the piston rings/seals, etc. Even though I know my ar is no longer covered under warranty, I feel Toyota being such a well known company and harping about safety should step up and do something with or without government assistance, and do something about this. I know I will never buy another Toyota vehicle as they do not stand behind them.
My 2004 Toyota Camry has started to "hold back" when I drive it. Then the abs light came on and started flashing and when I stepped on the brakes, the flashing light went off. I called the lancaster PA Toyota dealer and the service department said that as long as it is intermittent and not constant, it is nothing to worry about. But I wonder how many other Toyota customers have had problems with their anti-lock braking systems.

Brake-abs-vsc-trac off lights in my dash have been coming on for the last couple weeks with increasing frequency. First just once, then a week later every couple days, finally 3 times in one morning. When I took it to my personal mechanic, they said there were no codes. Then I called the dealer where purchased and someone suggested venting the gas cap. It still came on again later that day, and I took it to the dealer with the lights illuminated. I have been told my brake, abs/vsc and trac off lights have been coming on in my 2003 Camry lev6 because the vsc computer needs replacing for almost $1,800. On a car with only 25k miles that is absurd and I refused!! the dealer consultant even said that was odd. There is obviously a defect for this to go bad. I have read on-line forums where many truck and SUV owners are experiencing this same problem. I feel that this is a safety concern and a problem Toyota is responsible for. I am not about to spend this much money on a problem that should not have occurred in the first place. Some owners say they have been told that various sensors could be at fault and not the whole computer. One owner said he found it was a bad brake pad! I think the sensors should be checked for replacement. Whether it is the sensors or the computer, it is a factory defect, and Toyota should pay for it.

The abs light came on while I was driving the car after having this part repaired the previous week. Toyota did a final repair attempt on the car in compliance with the north carolina state lemon law for a resonable number of attepmts. The yaw sensor was replaced and the light went off. The traction control system in the car was not working until the part was replaced.
The brakes on Toyota Camry le models are not functioning properly. In each of three different Camry cars that I have owned (1996,2000, and 2001) the brakes make a rumbling sound when slowing down from a speed over 50 miles an hour. Furthermore, on my 2001 Camry the abs light came on during use on icy roads, I took it to the dealer who said that this happens and that he had five other complaints about the very same thing that day. He attributed this to one of the sensors "sticking", and that all I had to do is turn the car off and let it "cool " down and the light would go off. This is true, this did happen, but what good are abs brakes if they malfunction on the very icy roads that they are supposed to protect you from? it seems to me that if a sensor is "sticking" the sensor should be replaced and that the car should not have to be allowed to "cool down" especially since this happened in the middle of a parkway on icy road conditions. Also, during the time the abs light was on one of the wheels brakes locked preventing the wheel from spinning further causing a more dangerous situation.

Abs system light came in. Dealer replaced abs system, but had me drive car while system was on order. Brakes responded poorly without system and didn't drive due to concern of failing brake. Rear system failed rear struts replaced . Gas tank has loud thud when tank full to half tank, thud intermitent when tank under half. Dealer said car may just have thud/siad some cars designed with baffles that thud.
When brakes are applied, sounds like metal to metal grinding. Had taken vehicle to dealer. After repair work was performed, abs light came on & vehicle would skid when brakes were applied. Brakes had been modified.
