My 07 Camry vibrates uncontrollably when the A/C is turned on and my car is in park. I took it to Toyota in the past and they said they couldnt find a problem. However, yesterday I turned it on and the problem gotten worser. It felt like my engine etc was vibrating. I noticed after I turn the A/C on and off when it starts to vibrate, it stops.

I have 58,000 miles now and my warranty is now up.
Has anybody experienced a problem like this before?

My car used to do that when idling with A/C on, but I unplugged my battery for about 1 min and reconnected it. Turn on your engine and A/C, let it idle for a few min (it will vibrate like crazy) and go for a drive for about 1 hr, and let the computer re-learn. Now I don't feel that vibration anymore and car drives smoothly. Try it. :D

Mines only last for a couple seconds also but Im afraid it might cause damage/problems to other parts of the car. I read other forums such as Lexus, Honda and they have similiar problems. They state that engine may need to heat before turning on the A/C? Not all Camry etc. have this problem so it concerns me.

My engine is a 2.4L, Njerald and others what type of engine do you all have?

I have the I4 2.4L (2AZ-FE) as well, try the reset method and see if it works for you.

mine might be because i switched out the stock alternator to a HO alternator though. I don't think it was like that before i switch the stock alt out.

RPM going down too? check battery and alternator, most likely battery going bad and it does not send enough current to consumers when it should help to alternator on low RPM.
It actually normal for all I-4, but should vibrate for short time only, before all current consumers will get enough amps from alternator and battery.
