Question about 2001 Toyota Camry

2001 Camry V6 Auto cruise control problem.

I have a 2001 Camry V6 Auto. For some reason the cruise control cancels when I shift manually to second. Is this normal, and if it is can this feature be bypassed? My previous vehicles have never dropped out as long as I maintained the minimum speed. In fact my Citroen (hearing the groans already) would maintain cruise at 40kph in first. Thanks

    I notice on my new Gregory's manual wiring diagram that there's a wire from a 'drive' terminal on the gearbox to the cruise computer. I'm going to see if hotwiring this solves the problem. I also intend to hotwire the cruise so it is active when I turn on the ignition. All that will be left is getting the computer to remember the speed I set before I dropped below 40 kph, or stopped.

    Thanks. I had a feeling it might be normal. But over rev between shifts? On my previous cars it was never a problem. I had an aftermarket cruise on my 2.2 camry and dropping into second before a roundabout really made the car punch through without breaking any laws! I guess this is the auto box nanny state at work. At least in my car I can remove the ignition key without putting the car in park. And put it in gear without putting my foot on the brake. Of course if I had a manual I could start it in gear and shove it in reverse at 80kph. But because it's an auto I have to be treated like an idiot.

SOURCE: 2005 ToyotaCamry fault code P0500 Vehicle Speed sensor Malfuction

They are not the sensors you want. The car uses the abs wheel sensors for vehicle speed. Your problem lies in the abs system , possibly the left front sensor, abs ecu or speedo cluster, Clear the code and see if it stay out otherwise you'll need to go to a trusted technician. .

SOURCE: replaced mass airflow sensor in 2001 tacoma twice.

If the new unit only lasted a couple of months, and the engine light goes back on, I think that you should try to have it replaced at the auto parts store under their 90 day warranty policy, if they have that.

Try to go to a reputable source such as Autozone or Advance Auto Parts where they have a more liberal return and refund policy.

Usually, a MAF sensor once replaced shouldn't go bad in such a short time span.

Maybe, check that the voltage to the MAF sensor is not too much for the sensor, causing it to go bad. If that's the case, the computer reference signal voltage may be the culprit.

Good luck on this repair.

2001 Lincoln LS, 5 speed manual, cruise control buttons are mixed up. + does resume, - sets or increases speed, cancel sets or reduces speed and won't cancel. Is this computer related? Had an issue...


Sounds like your clock spring may be going bad. The blinking cruise control symbol is a warning that you are traveling at a high speed. That is nothing to really worry about.

Can a brakelight switch for no cruise control be used instead of one with cruise control?


No, the wiring would not be the same because the brake light switch is what turns off your cruise control when you step on the brake.

2009 Toyota Camry problems


All Toyota auto trans cars downshift when descending a hill when you tap the brake. This is called "Downhill Shift Logic"; what this is for is to eliminate the double shift when you come to the bottom of a hill and then accelerate. Normal condition. Usually happens above 38 MPH.
Also: The cruise will accelerate when going uphill. Normal condition.Plus: The cruise will not disengage back to the set MPH after you top the hill. Toyota recommends to disengage the cruise when encountering steep terrain.
