2009 Toyota Camry

CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

Inoperative brake lights would not warn other drivers that the vehicle is slowing or stopping, increasing the risk of a crash.

Exterior Lighting — Brake Lights — Switch

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2009 Camry vehicles manufactured from July 1, 2008, through February 28, 2009, and model year 2009-2011 venza vehicles manufactured from October 20, 2008, through January 4, 2011. During assembly of the contact-type stop lamp switch, silicone grease may have come in contact with the surface of the switch which could cause contact resistance. If this occurs, warning lamps could illuminate, a no start condition could result, the shift lever may not shift from the ┐park┐ position, or the vehicle's brake lights could become inoperative.
Actions
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The safety recall began on April 12, 2012. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
