The engine control computer has detected a problem. The kind of problem can be found out only when the computer is put into diagnostic mode by someone who knows how to do this. Get the vehicle inspected by a mechanic who has the documentation for your model (or go to an authrorised Toyota dealer's service centre) ASAP as the problem could be serious and lead to engine damage if not repaird. Quite often, however, it's just a failed O2 (oxygen) sensor.

To repair the dash lights on a 1993 Camry, it is best to first check the fuse to make sure it is still operable. If that is OK, check the light bulb to make sure that it is still in working condition.

That warning light means a light bulb is out. Check all of your brake lights (including the brake light on the rear dash!)

You will have to take the dash apart and replace the bulb.

Check on the upper end of the brake pedal under dash area

Toyota Camry 1996, dash bord extreme left corner on the dash bord icon appears with tail light shines. what it means, what was wrong and what to fix

Check on the upper end of brake pedal (under dash)

On the bottom right side of the instrument panel on the dash, next to the "Service" light.

Have you checked all the relays? If so, check the wires for shorts. If you have dash lights its probably a short. The fuse for brake lights often also carry the dash light too in an effort to let you know that you have brake lights out.

The flasher relay is on the left of the driver side below the dash. Just pull it out.

Check the operation nd alignment of the stop light switch located at the upper end of the brake pedal under dash area

Check the fuse box. The problem is probably a burnt out tail-light switch.

If there is no light at all in whole dash. first check the fuse second check the headlight control switch.

I think the exclamation light is the light for you to turn on you headlights.

Check fuses for the air bag system. If they are ok. You have no choice but bring at the Toyota dealer place. There is not much what you can do when you have some problems with the safety system.

check dimmer switch on dash very easy to forget . Could be light bad if dash stillworks

Well, as I've owned a Toyota Camry before, my advice would be to you, check for a button with "PWR" on it (usually near the gear shift). Most manual cars will have a "power" and "economy" mode in them. The "PWR" light on the dash probably means that you've got the vehicle in "power" mode. Find the button. Turn it off. Problem Solved :P Have fun!

First check the dash light dimmer control switch to be sure it is not turned off then check the fuse.

Usually at the upper end of the brake pedal under dash

I had to take the dash panel down to get to the bulbs. It's pretty straigt forward takiking the dash down or if you can look in a chiltons manual it shows the steps.
