My 2001 camry 4cylinder parking brake light came on two months ago .It seems to come on when i make left hand turns , and go off when i make a right hand turn. sometimes! most of times is on .I've checked fluid levels brakes are only 10% warn .What is the problem?
You could be leaking brake fluid (yes this is a serious caution, hazard!!). ..or your brake fluid is really low. Also you could have alot of air in the system-you probably changed the pads & didn't bleed all 4 brakes properly..

Most of the time the problem is caused by the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park. When you turn the key on, power is applied to the solenoid and stepping on the brake cuts that power.
Turn off the engine to the Camry and pop the trunk. Never attempt any kind of repair--even a simple task like this one--while the car is running.
Look for the access panel on the side of the trunk that leads
to the tail light. You should be able to snap it open with your hands.
If it proves stubborn, carefully pry it open with a screwdriver. Note
the presence of two separate tail light holders in the space beyond: the
top one for the turn signal light and the bottom one for the stop/tail
and rear side marker lights. Determine which light needs replacing
before you proceed.
Turn the light holder containing the burnt-out tail light
toward the back of the car (clockwise for the right-hand side, and
counterclockwise for the left-hand side) and pull outward. It should
come free of the surrounding frame.
Press down on the holder's lock release to detach the old
bulb. Then fit the new bulb in its place. Make sure the lock has snapped
shut and the new bulb is secure in its housing before continuing.
Slide the holder back into position and turn it in the
reverse direction in which you attached it (counterclockwise for the
right-hand side and clockwise for the left-hand side) to snap it in
place. It should remain there without further adjustments.
Snap the plastic covering shut and close the trunk, then have
someone stand nearby with a view of the back of the car. Climb into the
driver's seat and turn on the engine, then depress the brakes or
activate the turn signal. Ask the other person if he can see it clearly
to ensure the new light is functioning as it should.
the problem is with the bulb, what is happening is when you push your brake pedal with the lights off you are turning on you parking light side of you bulb, when the lights are on the parking light is already lit up so when you push the pedal you see no change. try a new bulb
