Question about 2001 Toyota Camry
Weird smell coming from vents of 2001 Toyota Camry. Started about a week ago with an odd humid smell, similar to what you'd smell when you go to a pool, but not exactly. Smell would come and go and only when the heat was on. This morning I used my command start to warm it up, when I went to jump in to leave I noticed it didn't seem like the fan was blowing as much as it should and the dash lights looked a little dim. Then I noticed my battery light was on and the stink was pretty strong. I just put in a new alternator and battery a few months ago. Around the same time I installed the new alternator/battery, my e-brake light started coming on sporadically. If the temps were warmer it would turn off then on occasionally as I was driving. The colder it got, the more constant the light was on. Is this 3 seperate issues (battery, smell, brake light)? Or are they related?

Could be a loose or dirty battery connection, poor battery, or alternator. Check all the cables and connections to your starter. Clean your battery posts. Have your alternator and battery checked. It sounds like you are either running off just the battery or just the alternator. One of them is not right.
