(1) ABS module has an intermittent short. When it fails the speedometer stops working, ABS and brake light on dash come on, temp gauge and tach fluctuate, and the A/C stops working. The short in module was diagnosed by a Toyota dealer. I understand electrical components go bad but for it to effect the speedometer and A/C seems like a poor design. (2) on several occasions my engine oil light has come on. Apparently there are issues with excessive oil consumption in some model Toyota with piston rings flaws. Dealer has done oil consumption tests but unable to reproduce problem.

ABS, speedometer, tachometer, RPM and A/C jumps on and off all over the place. I took it to a Toyota dealer, could not find what was the problem but they assumed it may be the ABS module or some other modules may not be talking to each other. I have researched on line Toyota Camry forums and and found they are lots of Toyota Camry owners with the same issues. This is a very safety issue because im not able to see at the speed my car is going when driving it because tachometer gauges among the others gauges working intermittent (on and off) I request for Toyota to place a recall for all Toyota Camry having this mayor safety electronics problems. I would not mind paying for repair if Toyota dealer knew what the problem was but they don't know and if the repair did not exceed ocer thousands of dollars for something that the manufacture has failed to addressed and fix. Thank you.

Hood open warning light on dashboard and chime activates while driving on surface streets and freeway. I stop to check hood and it is secure. Light and alarm will clear and then a few miles later it will go on again. When car is parked and car alarm is activated, the car alarm will start sounding off in the middle of the night, with nobody near the vehicle. I have read that other owners have had these two conditions also, and believe these two conditions are related. It is an annoyance to my neighbors as well as myself, and if driving on the road this could cause an accident if pulling over to check the hood latch to silence alarm and warning light. This has now happened numerous times in the past two months.

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry that has intermittent instrument cluster problems. Odometer does not increment miles traveled. The speedometer and tachometer will cease to indicate proper readings and drop to zero. The tachometer will then bounce between zero and what I can only assume is a close approximation of the actual engine RPM. At the same time, the ABS and parking brake warning lights illuminate and stay on for the duration of the "episode".

Basically the ABS actuator it's failing like in the hybrid model but are not covered by the Toyota extended warranty which is completely unfair as the part failing it's the same basic ABS part but on different non-electric variant

My brake and ABS lights come on intermittent. When the two lights come on the speedometer stops working and it's difficult to brake. My local Toyota dealership stated that my ABS actuator/ABS module is going out. This is the same year, make, and model of cars that people lost there lives due to brake issue. Toyota refuses to acknowledge and repair this issue.

No loss of power either way, but has been cycling between for the past week. Not limited to specific speeds of amount of time engine has been running, as it occurs at various speeds and various times.

The short circuiting of the ABS actuator has hit me too. This happened on 03/22/2017 to my 2007 Camry le. It first came up when I was waiting at a red light. The ABS and brake light came up and even when the car started moving, the speedometer wasn't moving. I took the vehicle to the service center and was told that the ABS actuator needs to be replaced. It is going to cost me $2500. I do not want to spend almost half of the car's worth on replacing this part when I won't be surprised if another part blows up. Looks like this is a very common issue with the 2007 Camry model. I am surprised that Toyota is not extending the warranty offered to the hybrid model to the non hybrid one. This is indeed a manufacturing issue and should be fixed. Or is it going to take a few accidents before Toyota accepts its fault. Fuel gauge, tacometer, speedometer don't work NHTSA action number: PE14001 covers just hybrid model however the it's the same same part: Brake actuator

I was driving into my garage and had just brake to let it ease in. My foot was still on the brake, when the car suddenly revved and lunged forward. The brake would not work, and it was as if the car had a mind of its own. It hit the crate that was in front of the wall, and forced a bike rack through the wall. The front bumper of my car was cracked in places. The car then stopped. So scary! I immediately called my dealership and was told they could not talk to me. I needed to call the corporation, which I did. After two months of waiting on a decision, I was told there is nothing wrong with my car, and that's that. I have since learned that there have been other incidents with Toyota just like mine. I am petrified to drive the car, and yet I am also afraid to pass it on to someone else. I don't want anyone hurt. I have called Toyota, and they do not return my calls I am wondering what I can do.

Car was recently shipped from overseas. When I got my car, the dash lights will not go off, the ABS motor will not shut off causing my battery to drain constantly, speedometer will not work, gas gauge moves slow, engine shakes and feels like it is going to cut off. The car was stationary and in motion. Car air condition occasionally blows hot air.
