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.

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.

What does the 'pwr' light on the dash mean on a 1989 Camry when on continually?

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!
