Question about 1997 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

"Brakes" light periodically coming on

I have a 1997 Toyota Camry. It is fairly new to me. Every couple of days, a light will come on that says "Brakes," indicating some kind of brake problem. I would like to check the fluid levels but not sure where to look and I don't have a manuel. Thanks.

While trying to change my pads i noticed my rotors seem loose, also i cant get the brakes to stop grinding, squealing after reassembly.


Shane, rotors may seem loose until wheel is on car and torqued to specification, I recommend you take car in for your brakes to be inspected, estimate and repaired at a good shop. Arrange your appointment time so you can be there and watch how it is done and learn from it. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Check your brake fluid if low have your brakes checked. The brake ligh on the dash stays on if fluid is low or if there is a pressure differential (leak).

You did not mention working on the rear brakes, so I must assume that the rear brakes are still original equipment. Perhaps the grinding noise is coming from the rear.

There is a possibility that the rotors are warped and need either turned or need new ones. If ABS is acting up it could effect the pedal movement too but usually more drastic movement. Only other way to know is have a good mechanic run the scanner checking brakes on the run.

97 toyota camry brake light is on in my dashboard


Check the brake fluid level and top off to full mark if it still stays on then you have a brake system failure in the hydrolic system front or rear brakes are not working and the light is telling you that.

Brake light warning light stays on only in cold weather.1997 toyato camry


check your brake fluid, if fluid is low light will come on. the only other time is if the brake pedal looses preasure and then the pedal would be low, also you may what to have brakes checked, when fluid goes low it also means brakes may be low, hope this is helpful.
