Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

1999 Toyota Camry check engine and trac lights on

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.

1994 Chevy C1500 truck. No rear brake lights

Most likely this is a brake light switch issue. Replace switch.

If your emergency flashers don't work, all flasher bulbs are fine, but flashing too fast, then check and replace Hazard light switch.

look in auto manual to locate trouble shooting section of car manual, and look up instructions and steps toward finding and fixing problem, or you can always do as i would do and find location of auto fuse panel box and check for a blown fuse, under print instrument lights or gauges, because more than likely it is a fuse that needs replacing.

My brake lights and rear directional signals do not work on my 2006 Ford Five Hundred. I can't find a fuse? Any ideas?

The fuse panel is located under the instrument panel to the left of the steering wheel. The brake lights are on fuse F18. It is the one on the bottom, all the way to the right hand side. That column has the most fuses in it. There are 7 total in that line. Good luck

Here is a Problem for you all! 2000 Grand Am GT ram air v6 ABS and Brake light always on, No trouble codes, and no rear brakes at all key on or off. Has fluid at M/C and to ABS unit but not from unit to...

This problem sounds like and ABS module that has gone bad, the ABS module has toothed gears inside that actuate the ABS motor, if one of these gears slips a tooth or "unwinds" itself if will not circulate brake fluid to where it needs to go (ex: the rear brakes) alot of times the brake and ABS light will come on, but will not set any trouble codes. My recommendation is to take this to a repair shop and have them verify the problem and replace the ABS module, the motor gears have to be properly aligned when replacing or the lights will stay on and you will still have the same problem. Hope this helps.

The car died and won't start.

check the fuel pump relay first for a diagram of this you can get one from the dealership or autozone and if you can spray some starter fluid in the throttle body and the car starts and runs till it runs out it is more then likely your fuel pump
