#1 - Brake Light On problem of the 2013 Toyota Camry
The vehicle involved is a 2013 Toyota Camry. The VIN of this vehicle is 4T1BF1FK1D_. After making a turn onto a road, before entering a parking lot, my brake lights went on. It's a new car with only 3500 miles on it - the brakes should be fine. I turn into the parking lot, park the car, put it in park, and turn off the engine. I check the emergency brake, it was not engaged. I turn the car on and the brake light goes away. However, now I cannot take my car out of park. It is stuck in park. I step on the brake, I turn the wheel and the wheel turns fine. The gear is still stuck in park. I call the dealership, they send out a tow truck. I try my car one more time and it is still stuck in park. The driver of the tow truck tries, he puts his hand on the handle and behold, it shifts out of park and can go into r, n and d. Can you believe it?? I will continue to monitor this 'odd' occurence. Hopefully, this will not happen again. The failure date was Oct. 15, 2013.

#2 - Brake Light On problem of the 2007 Toyota Camry
The car is a 2007 Toyota Camry. When approaching a stop light all of the instrument panel gauges dropped to zero, the brake and abs lights, illuminated, and the a/c stopped blowing cold air. Problem persisted for several minutes and the tachometer bounced around while the rest of the gauges remained at 0 or cold for the temperature gauge. This continues to be an intermittent problem that does not seem to be connected to travel speed, outside temperature fluctuation or any other external variations. Although currently this erratic state seems to be the new normal as it is in this state more often than it works properly. I do not know the speed that I am traveling nor do I know if my abs braking system will work should I ever be in a situation where it would be needed since the warning light is on. This is very worrisome for me but I do not have $500 for Toyota to "try" and diagnose the problem as I have been quoted for their diagnostic time. I have taken it to an independent mechanic several times and they cannot seem to rectify the problem, additionally, I cannot smog my vehicle because the shops computer cannot communicate with my car. It was Friday, June 14, 2013 when this brake light on issue happened.

#4 - Brake Light On problem of the 2007 Toyota Camry
The vehicle is a 2007 Toyota Camry. About two days ago, I was driving and my instrument panel started doing some crazy stuff. The brake light and abs light came on, and my temp gauge, rpm, and odometer started fluctuating. This lasted about 30-45 seconds the first time. Since then it happens intermittently every time i¿m driving and it lasts a couple of minutes each time. I was already scheduled to go in for an oil change today, so I had the service department at my local dealer check out this problem also. The tech first quoted a $53 diagnostic fee, but called me back a couple of hours later to say that they need a more extensive diagnostic process, which would increase the fee to $99. She also said that I needed brakes and a battery ($202 front brakes+$118 battery+$89 brake fluid replace). About an hour later, she called me back and gave me the devastating news that my abs actuator/skid control computer needed to be replaced. The cost was $1686 for the part, and the total with labor would be $2035. This did not include my $40 oil change, battery, and breaks. Nevertheless, I opted to wait on the $2000 abs issue. I went to pick up my car and was actually charged $148 for the diagnostic fee. Essentially, I paid $199 for an oil change and for them to diagnose a problem that they already knew to be a common Camry problem. I would have never purchased a Toyota if I had known that this was a common problem. Also this is a Toyota specific part, so it's not like you can shop around for a deal. I have to pay this ridiculous amount of money because I don't want my children riding in an unsafe car. I a¿¿m so disgusted right now. This issue happened on 08/16/2013.
#5 - Brake Light On problem of the 2007 Toyota Camry
As I was driving my 2007 Toyota Camry over 60 mph on the expressway, my brake light and abs light both came on. The speedometer went down to 0 speed and the rpm & temperature gauge were bouncing up & down. The ac fan also shut off. I tried the emergency brake on a parking lot and they do not work when the above mentioned happens!! I took it to Toyota dealership and they said it "seems" to be the brake actuator assembly and that repairing it will be $2500+. They did tell me that they have seen this problem before and that it is nothing I did wrong- just a "defective" part that Toyota has not recalled "yet". I foresee class-action suits/cases regarding this issue in the near future!! I am extremely disappointed at Toyota's unreliability and lack of customer satisfaction. This brake light on problem happened on Wednesday, June 5, 2013.

problem : unintended sudden braking after Toyota's recall
description: I am owner of 2008 Toyota Camry le. My car experienced an unintended acceleration problem once. Local Toyota dealer applied recall to fix this issue. Now my car applies unintended brakes. This has happened 3 times in last 15 days, each of the symptoms described below
1) trying to coast to stop, car was going at 50mph, as soon as I step foot off pedal, car slowed drastically, brake light didn't come on but car reduce speed from 50mph to 35mph and kept on reducing. Note that I never pressed brake pedal but brakes were applied automatically to wheels. This happened twice. 2) trying to merge into freeway, speed between 45-50mph & trying to accelerate, suddenly lost speed from 50 to 40mph in matter of 2 seconds, my foot was on accelerator all the time. We were almost rear ended by vehicle following us,
I request you to look into this cars stopping by themselves are equally as bad as cars accelerating by themselves. We have experienced first hand when we were almost rearended by a car. Kindly look into this. It was Jun. 4, 2010 when this brake light on issue happened.

#12 - Brake Light On problem of the 2007 Toyota Camry
2007 Toyota Camry. Initially when the car was turned on the brake light, and abs light would come on along with the tachometer, speedometer would begin racing while in park. At this time the engine cooling system would go down to "c" this happened half a dozen times and it was taken to Toyota dealers. I spent 618. 00 for repairs and I was told the car was fixed. Toyota dealer also stated I was able to drive the car and there would be no problems. After spending money for repairs within 24 hours the problem began again. Now this time not only when you were in park would the lights come on the began coming on while I was driving. So I could not tell what speeds I was doing and unable to tell if I had brakes when the light came on. So it was taken back to the same dealership and this time they want to replace skid control ecu/actuator per tech line and want me to spend over 2000. 00 to fix the problem even though I have a bill of sale that states problem was fixed just days before. The failure date was Wednesday, August 18, 2010.

I reported this to my insurance company. The brakes were checked and I was told they were okay. When I took my car for it's first maintance at the Toyota dealer, I told the service person to check the brakes and why. The service technician informed me that the 2003 Camry's rpms go up if you have the air conditioner on and you simultaneously step on the brakes lightly. They did not replace any brake parts, instead they suggested that I press hard on the brakes if the air conditioner is on to avoid an other surging incident.

#14 - Brake Light On problem of the 2003 Toyota Camry
The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Toyota Camry is 4T1BE32K53_. The vehicle had a crash. I was involved in a rear-end collision in my 2003 Toyota Camry when my abs brakes failed. The car was taken to the dealership the next day to have the brakes inspected. The inspection was visual only. The abs brake light was not on and no defect was observed. The service advisor recommended that we have our tires replaced, in case the tires contributed to the failure. We replaced all four tires. One week later, we experienced another incident in which the brakes failed to deploy correctly, causing us to feel unsafe at a stop light in tight traffic. We took the car in for a second inspection. A Toyota technician took me for a test ride and said they had received complaints of "soft, cushy" brakes, but that whenever tested, these brakes met the Toyota specifications. Again, we were dissatisfied and felt that our safety was compromised in this car. We contacted Toyota's corporate headquarters and registered a complaint. An accident report was taken over the telephone. We were given no further help. We recontacted the dealership and requested that the district technician take our car for a test ride. On 4/4/08, the technician and the service manager of the dealership took the car out on a test ride. They informed us that the abs brakes met Toyota's specifications. Despite the dealerships assurances, my husband had a third incident recently in traffic where the brakes failed once again. We fear for our safety in this car and do not want to drive it in traffic or otherwise. It was 01/25/07 when this brake light on issue happened.
