Different issues. The brakes are either bad bulbs, bad fuse or bad brake switch or wiring problem. The shifter release button is just that...shifter release button.

1997 Toyota camry won't start or come out of park. What can I do?

There is a shift lock button located next to shifter. Look for a small cover and remove it. You may use flat head screw driver if you don't have shift lock tool. These will free you shifter. Try starting on neutral using break.

I have a 1998 toyota camry that will not mover out of park. Ive tried putting the brake on and turning the wheel but the shifter will not move. How do I get the shifter to move?

There is a switch behind the brake pedal that allows the shifter to release out of park. Most likely that switch is bad. If the vehicle has a console shifter, look at the top of the shifter plate where you see the "DNR123" and there should be a small square plug that you can remove. Once you remove the small cover there is a button under the cover that you can depress and then you can shift the car out of "park" until your able to get it fixed. "Its called a neutral safety switch"

'98 TOY. CAMRY AUTO TRANS. My back up lights do not work and the light does not work for the center console where the shifter is located? Thank you

There is a sensor on the front of transmission that tells the car what position the shifter is in, most likely it is the problem. you can repair it by removing it ( 2 12mm bolts and a 12 or 14mm nut) and disassembling it by removing the screws that hold the two halfs together and cleaning the contact surface with some solvent and scotchbrite. Repack with a high temp grease and reassemble making sure to use the witness marks on the sensor as reference so to loose the adjustment.

Where is the fuse box for 92 toyota camry

The High-End fuses (large, high current fuses) are located on the driver's side of the car, under the hood, near the fender.
The general "spade" fuses are located in the car, on the driver's side, behind the little "stash" tray that flips down when opened. (It resembles and old-school ashtray mounted in the center console or door.).
Flip the "stash" tray down and rock it out of the dash. Once you do, you will see a bank of fuses and the fuse-box diagram should be on the back of the "stash" tray.
Hope this helps ya' !
Have a Blessed day.

PWR light is on dash, what does this mean ?

This light usually indicates that you have selected the power option for your transmission shift pattern(normal or pwr)

There is a button on the center console or the shifter that selects pwr or normal trany shifting, if pressing the button again does not change the light than the button or wiring may be defective and require further diagnosing

How do i remove the center console on my 2000 Camry

As I understand it, since it only works on "hi" you need a blower motor resistor. It is under the glove compartment and it is removed with 2 screws. It will be about $30.00 at the dealership. I don't know about the shifter.

Turn the overdrive back on

There should be a button on the shift lever itself that says O/D when you push that button in it will either turn it on or off. If it is the steering colum shifter it is on the very end. If it is the console mounted shifter it is closer to the passenger chair

Neutral safety switch

Go to, and see their repair guide for the neutral safety switch. It is not in the center console, but under the hood, in front of the transmission.
