Toyota Camry dashboard warning lights

    Toyota Camry dashboard warning lights are a combination of universal recognised symbols and symbols unique to Kia.

    Front passenger detection sensor, seat belt reminder and warning buzzer

    • If luggage is placed on the front passenger seat, the front passenger detection sensor may cause the warning light to flash and the warning buzzer to sound even if a passenger is not sitting in the seat.
    • If a cushion is placed on the seat, the sensor may not detect a passenger, and the warning light may not operate properly.

    If the malfunction indicator lamp comes on while driving

    First check the following:

    • Is the fuel tank empty?
      If it is, fill the fuel tank immediately.
    • Is the fuel tank cap loose? If it is, tighten it securely.
      The light will go off after several driving trips.
      If the light does not go off even after several trips, contact your Toyota dealer as soon as possible.

    Electric power steering system warning light (warning buzzer)

    When the battery charge becomes insufficient or the voltage temporarily drops, the electric power steering system warning light may come on and the warning buzzer may sound.

    WARNING

    If both the ABS and the brake system warning lights remain on

    Stop your vehicle in a safe place immediately and contact your Toyota dealer. The vehicle will become extremely unstable during braking, and the ABS system may fail, which could cause an accident resulting in death or serious injury.

    When the electric power steering system warning light comes on

    When the light comes on yellow, the assist to the power steering is restricted. When the light comes on red, the assist to the power steering is lost and handling operations of the steering wheel become extremely heavy. When steering wheel operations are heavier than usual, grip the steering wheel firmly and operate it using more force than usual.

    If the tire pressure warning light comes on

    Be sure to observe the following precautions. Failure to do so could cause a loss of vehicle control and result in death or serious injury.

    • Stop your vehicle in a safe place as soon as possible. Adjust the tire inflation pressure immediately.
    • If the tire pressure warning light comes on even after tire inflation pressure adjustment, it is probable that you have a flat tire. Check the tires. If a tire is flat, change it with the spare tire and have the flat tire repaired by the nearest Toyota dealer.
    • Avoid abrupt maneuvering and braking. If the vehicle tires deteriorate, you could lose control of the steering wheel or the brakes.

    If a blowout or sudden air leakage should occur

    The tire pressure warning system may not activate immediately.
