Failure Date: 04/11/2017

Under 15000 miles under city driving conditions. 2015 se trim. Brake light and "check brake system" message appreared on the center console. On the way to the dealership, brakes failed to work and I panicked and pumped more than once. Heard a "thud" noise and lo and behold the brake light and the message disappeared. Dealer confirmed that there was a maintainence code (with the scanner) and that they are replacing "brake booster". Vehicle still under warranty so luckily I dont have to pay anything. How is Toyota able to get away without a recall of faulty brakes? how many folks will have to get hurt or die before an action is taken.

After a few minutes, abs and brake dash lights turned off at the same time speedometer needle jumped back to current speed indication. No loss of power either way, but has been cycling between for the past week. Not limited to specific speeds of amount of time engine has been running, as it occurs at various speeds and various times.

The short circuiting of the abs actuator has hit me too. This happened on 03/22/2017 to my 2007 Camry le. It first came up when I was waiting at a red light. The abs and brake light came up and even when the car started moving, the speedometer wasn't moving. I took the vehicle to the service center and was told that the abs actuator needs to be replaced. It is going to cost me $2500. I do not want to spend almost half of the car's worth on replacing this part when I won't be surprised if another part blows up. Looks like this is a very common issue with the 2007 Camry model. I am surprised that Toyota is not extending the warranty offered to the hybrid model to the non hybrid one. This is indeed a manufacturing issue and should be fixed. Or is it going to take a few accidents before Toyota accepts its fault. Fuel gauge, tacometer, speedometer don't work NHTSA action number: pe14001 covers just hybrid model however the it's the same same part: brake actuator.

Abs actuator problem: my 2007 Toyota Camry has a failed abs actuator. This will cost me $2,000 to replace. The abs and brake warning lights lit up on the dashboard and the tachometer started fluctuating wildly, so I had it towed to the dealer. I have had the car for 9. 5 years and it has about 78,000 miles on it, so I believe the original part should have lasted longer. I am aware of the abs actuator problems on the 2007-08 Camry hybrid models, so I think you should investigate the abs actuators on the regular Camry models too.

My 2007 Toyota Camry is having abs and brake lights on, and this seems to be a safety hazard, mileage on the car is 138000. I have heard from many people, also this can be seen in carcomplaints. Com that this situation is commnly seen on 2007 Toyota Camry. This seems to be a manufacturing defect. I feel very unsafe to drive this car, but I cannot afford to repair this as I study that the repair cost is high. Do I need to suffer this loss since I bought Camry or can Toyota recall this and provide free service.

At start up the gauges started to work intermittently, after a while driving down the road they start working fine after a few miles they start jumping and falling. Brake light and abs lights comes on and ac quits working we haven t drive the car since this started happening called the dealer and they told us to take to service, before that I will like to know if theres a recall for that. On the last service made by Toyota dealer, they washed the engine, a practice that I am not agree, does that may be the cause? let me know, thanks.

The abs light and the red bold brake light came on and then off and the next day the abs light and the brake warning light came on and the the speedometer went to zero, the tachometer went to zero when I was driving on the freeway, also the air conditioner would not work, after a few minutes the warning lights went off and everything worked for a few minutes and the same thing happened again. I drive the car immediately to the repair shop and then checked the owner's manual and read it's the abs system is malfunctioning for the car.

July 2016, check engine light came on. Diagnostic indicated code p171. Was advised it was a laundry list of systems to check for this code. ( replaced the following; flex pipe, 02 sensor, spark plugs and fuel pump. For a total of 1400. 00) while driving on I-95 at 60 mph, airbag light, brake light, abs light and seat belt light all illuminated at the same time. Techometer surged out of control, engine temp gauge displayed no reading and speedometer went to zero. Oh and yeah, the ac that was blowing very cold air switched to warm or hot. All of these issues happened at the same time on the highway at 60 mph. Ironically, the check engine light did not illuminate and the mechanic is unable to determine the cause as there is no code issued from the computer for this very dangerous problem. This problem happens randomly and there is no warning. The engine performs normal during this issue with the exception of the ac that fails every time. This issue can and has happened when the car is sitting parked with engine running and while in motion. I am so afraid that this eventually will cause a serious accident or death. And the most annoying part is no mechanic can tell any of us why this happens or how to fix it. Please, please, help us before the worst happens.

I started to back out of the parking spot at the hotel I was staying to go out for dinner with my friends, I release the brakes and put the car in reverse. Then all of sudden the dash board lighted up then disappeared briefly when I put it in forward. As I was driving away from the hotel the lights on the dash board was lighted again. Then as I proceed to get on the freeway the dashboard lit up with warning check vsc system. (the hotel to the freeway ramp was a block away) I was driving in the right hand lane for several miles on the 580, because I noticed the brakes felt weird. The lights on the dash board remained lighted. The red indicator light for my brakes were on indicating the brakes were not released, but it was. At this point I was tensed and scared as I drove on the 580 freeway. I exited off the freeway slower than normal and I would press down on the brakes lightly and it would jerk and rock. It would bounce myself and friends in a rocking motion. We were all scared when I told them that I was not pressing on the brakes as it rocked. I was not playing with the brakes. My friend sitting in the front passenger side, confirmed to my friend sitting in the back I was not doing anything with the brakes as we rocked while driving or at the stop signs. I was driving cautiously on the streets due to I was afraid I might rear end someone. Every time I made the stop it would rock. So from the restaurant to the hotel I drove the streets and stayed off the freeway. The "check vsc "and indicators lights remained on the whole time. The following day, my husband drove out to get the car and drove it home for me. We took the back roads home to avoid freeway driving. As I drove behind him, I notice the brake lights stayed on most of the time. He too noticed the lights on the dash board remained on and the brakes were not working correctly.

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.

This situation have been going on for a month. When I have sitting at a light or on idle. My trac, abs and brake light continue to come on every other week or so. I have seen this complaint before from other Camry's owner online. When they go to the dealership, they tell them it is a sensor. But it is never resolved. Can anybody tell me what is going on with the car? I only had this car for a year. This is scary for me due to me having 2 kids.

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.

The brake lights do not illuminate when the adaptive cruise is on and the vehicle is slowed by braking maneuvers performed by the adaptive cruise when a car turns into the lane ahead. For example, the car may slow rapidly 10-15mph and no brake lights will turn on. This may increase the risk of a crash as a result of no warning to the car immediately behind me. This was confirmed today by Toyota who investigated and stated (george) the brake lights only come on in the event of an imminent crash (in front), despite the fact that this create a problem for the driver behind.

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.

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!.

While driving my brake alarm went off and the brake light would not go off. The brakes where hard to press and to stop. I took the car to Toyota and found that the "brake boosters" have failed. I was told Toyota knows about the issue but not enough cars to do a recall. They only posted a bulletin for them . I can't believe my life was in their hands and was never told because not enough people are having an issue. They replace the part but now I feel unsafe in a new car. . .

4t1be46k07u678126 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 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, 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. (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.

The speedometer suddenly stopped working, my abs/brake light came on and then ac suddenly went out. Toyota stated I needed a brake actuator. The repair cost $2615. My question to them is why was there a recall for the same part on the2008 Toyota Camry hybrid. I have never had or heard of a repair on this part. Of course, my warranty had expired.
