Question about 1994 Toyota Camry
The gearshift is locked up so I have to push the button down in the console to put it in drive., Also, I have no brake lights. I think all this runs off the same fuse but the fuse shows to be good. I need those brake lights to work,guys, my inspection sticker is out!
If you are SURE that the brake light fuse is good? If so, check the brake lamp switch above the brake pedal, see if it is somehow disconnected. Check for power, at both sides of the brake fuse...and, check for poweer coming into and out of the brake switch (when pushing the brake pedal) with a 12 volt testlight. If the brake fuse is good, and you have power coming TO the brake switch, and not out of it, you need to replace the brake light switch.
OTOH, the brake switch just might need a small adjustement, too...If power is at both sides.
Note that the brake light switch ALSO powers/releases the shifter lock solenoid. You cannot take it out of park without pressing on the brake pedal.
Hope this helps you solve your problem.
