Question about 1999 Toyota Camry
I've had this car for five years and always had trouble with the panel lights. First the rear light off icon was on all the time, although all the rear lights were fine. Then about a year ago, whenever I drove at night the square light around the reverse gear came on. Lately the check engine and trac lights are on all the time, too. I took it to the mechanic when the last thing happened, and he said it would cost $75 just to hook it to his computer. He asked if the engine was running all right, and he didn't seem terribly concerned once I told him it was fine and had been fine the entire time I've had the car. He's done all my maintenance. I only drive about 4,000 miles a year. The car has 130,000 miles. Should I assume that I just have a wiring problem and ignore the lights unless the engine actually starts acting up?
I would ignore the problem until something else happens and the car is not running right. A lot of the time it could be a bad sensor or computer. I would say the same thing to my customers as your mechanic.
