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. . .

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.

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.

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.

Abs & brake light comes on randomly while driving my 2008 Camry. When this happens, speedometer drops to 0 and a/c is shut off. I took it to a Toyota dealer to check the problem. They diagnosed it as an abs actuator problem and quoted $2500 for replacement. I surfed internet and found that 2007-2011 Camry hybrids had exact same problem covered by Toyota using warranty extension. However, this is not covered. I called Toyota customer service and they said my VIN number is not in the range so it will not be covered. Failure to fix this part is going to be a safety concern because it can lead to brake failure. Case # opened with Toyota is 1505052731.

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.

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.

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.

I have a 2008 Camry le and in earlier this year I noticed the abs and brake lights on the dashboard come on intermittently, tachometer bounces up and down and speedometer shows 0. This keeps happening intermittently. Unlocking and re-locking the door locks resets to normal but only lasts so long. Like some many other people who complained about this , I am concerned about paying $3-4 k. A local Toyota dealer mechanic said he'd never seen a brake actuator on a Camry go bad. Really. I would hope Toyota will do the right thing and have a service campaign to resolve this. Just like the one they have going for the hybrid Camry in the same model year range.

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.
