Toyota Camry owners have reported 52 problems related to brake light on (under the service brakes category).
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.

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.
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 this vehicle going is very dangerous, I am a female and I drive most so the time during nights and I am very worry if something happens. I went for Toyota service and they mentioned that the root cause of this situation was that I did not bring my car for maintenance with Toyota in the first two years which is not true. I want to know if Toyota is not doing something on this regards, I do not have that quantity of money to correct the situation and they mentioned that if it is not corrected I will have an accident because the brakes will fail.

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.
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 has abs,brake warning,vsc,and master brake warning lights on. From what I have researched this could be potentially dangerous.
While driving at approximately 35 mph, I stepped on the brake to stop at a red light. The brake pedal went down to the floor and made a loud grinding sound. The dashboard flashed warning lights "brake" and a 2nd warning of "check brake system". I immediately pulled over and consulted the manual which said stop immediately and contact Toyota dealer, which I did. I took the car in to auto nation in weston, FL (I was very close when this happened). By the time I reached the dealer the brake lights went out. They called later and informed me nothing was wrong. I asked them to recheck as I knew something was wrong since the brake did not function properly and made a terrible noise. They kept the car until the following morning to recheck the car, and again said nothing was wrong. They informed me the car didn't know it did anything wrong, my reply was that I knew the car did something wrong. (the service ticket reads: "performed health check, no problem found, no repairs performed") I am very reluctant to drive the car now.

Guages started going crazy and the abs warning light and brake light came on. After reviewing several comments off the internet I think that the abs module is faulty.

First to fail was the speedo after the abs and brake light came on. No actual brake problem but the lack of speedometer is unsafe. Abs unit essentially controls instrument cluster. . Not necessary or safe plus dealer repair part approx $1800. 00.
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).
The issues started with both the abs and brake lights coming on every so often. The lights would come on for about a 30 seconds to a minute and then turn off. This would happen maybe once or twice a day. Then they began to turn several times throughout the day for longer periods of time. When the abs and break lights are on, the speedometer and odometer falls to zero, and the temperature gage jumps up and down. The ac also begins to blow hot air when these lights are on and the car begins to shake when idle. It is very unsafe when the speedometer is not working and you cant tell how fast you are driving. It is also an issue when the other gauges in your vehicle are not working as you cant tell if something else is seriously wrong (for example, you cant tell if your car is actually running hot or cold because the temperature dial jumps up and down). I have researched this issue and there are a lot of people out there experiencing this same issue. I also reported these issues to Toyota and shared with them my research and they basically aren't going to do anything about it.
The brake and abs light are on, the speedometer and rpm meter goes to 0 when I was drivng at 40 mph. It also happened when I was stopped in park. The a/c also don't work. The fault is intermittent.
The brake and abs lights came on. The speedometer and odometer fell to zero. Sometimes the odometer would jump up and down for a few seconds. The temperature gauge drops to zero. The engine sounds like it's about to turn off but does not. A/c does not give off cold air. Gear light indicator goes off or indicates drive gear no matter on what gear.
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.
The contact owns a 2009 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 40 mph, the abs and brake warning light illuminated and the instrument panel gauges fluctuated. The vehicle was restarted and the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who diagnosed that the brake actuator needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 73,165.
The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that while driving approximately 35 mph, the abs and brake warning lights illuminated on the instrument panel. In addition, the speedometer would drop to zero and the rpms revved up. The dealer diagnosed that the abs brake actuator needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 66,685.
Several warning lights on the dash illuminated, including the stability control and brake lights, along with a warning on the dic that said "check vsc. " there was also an intermittent loss of braking ability/brake pedal pressure.
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.
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.
I pulled into a parking space, stopped, and was in the process of pulling up the emergency brake, when the vehicle suddenly accelerated. The car bolted going over the parking curb and continuing on into a building, all with no momentum as the car was stopped. One witness said it was a very loud revving sound. Two others said it sounded like a truck. The person who was behind me said my brake lights were on.

On my way home from work, at approximately 4:00 pm, while driving at approximately 35 mph, I noticed my dashboard panel lights fluttering, and that the panel instruments were moving up and down (specifically my tachometer and temperature gauge). My speedometer was not registering any speed, even though I was doing about 35 mph, and the brake and abs lights were on and bright red. I took the car to the dealer next day, and I was told that the abs actuator was defective and it would cost me $2492. 00, plus labor to replace the abs actuator. I was also told that regular braking would work, but the abs would not. I like my Toyota Camry 2008. My prior 1996 Camry is still running well, and I also liked it. That's why I bought the 2008 model. What I don't like a is a car with under performing, unsafe, faultily engineered or substandard parts, which may lead to accidents, loss of life and customer frustration.
As I was approaching a pedestrian crossing, the abs light and check vsc light and brake light came on. When I tried to apply the brakes to stop, I realized that the brakes were not responsive. The car did not go into limp home mode. The abs had completely failed. Updated 05/12/14.
