The car has a shift solenoid that releases the shift lever so you can move it into gear when you apply pressure on the brake pedal. Upon depressing the brake the shifter should move freely. If not the solenoid for the shifter has gone bad

There are two things that prevent it from shifting out of gear. The slenoid attached to the brake as stated above and another pink lever that is spring loaded or should be. If the override in the cup holder (see owners manual) doesn't work than the spring has most likely come off due to the small plastic hook that is destined to snap off. Reattach the spring by drilling a small hole in the hot pink lever where it used to attach. You buy a new spring and cut it to size if needed. The console is fairly easy to remove. most everything just unsnaps. The shifter knob just lifts straight up. You may need to rock it side to side a bit but do not twist it. I removed it all with a screwdriver to unsnap the clips. There is also four nuts that attach the assembly to the floor. The pink lever on the driver side is most likely the problem.

I bought Toyoto Camry 2008 in UAE one month ago. After one week whenever I switch ignition on the Air Bag Indication mostly remains on. Sometimes, disappears for few minutes and then lights up again and...

The air bag light on then off for a while,while driving it comes on and stay on for a while this means the system has detected a problem in the airbag system and it is warning you that if you get in a accident the air bag may not deploy. My hope is that youll never need it and youll never be a vehicle when it goes off.
