1997 Toyota Camry 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 145000 miles
Intermittent Problem #1 - The traction control light and anti-lock brake (ABS) light occasionally will come on at the same time indicating no traction control and no ABS. The lights go out after turning off the ignition and restarting. This happens about once every 20 starts.
Intermittent Problem #2 - (occurred only 1 time so far.) When turning on the ignition to start, nothing happened - no lights on the dash and no sounds. The gearshift also would not come out of Park to enable drifting the car. A few minutes later, I turned on the headlights to see if the battery was completely dead. The lights were very bright so I tried to start the car again. The car started immediately and ran normally, however, the radio required that I enter the security code which I did. The radio has been fine and the car continues to start without a problem. Could this be a relay or ignition switch problem?
