In this evening, after I started my I4 AT camry xle's engine. I stepped on the brake pedal and tried to shift the gear from "P" to "D". But I was failed to do that. Then I took a look to the stoplight, and I find out the stoplight doesn't go on even I stepped on the brake pedal.

Even though I can make my camry move like others by pushing the shift lock override button, but this is a serious problem since the brake light won't turn on.

Does anyone have any idea of what happen to my camry? or any suggestion? Thanks,

seems like the sensor behind the brake pedal has gone numb and is not noticing that the pedal is depressed. the brakes themselves might work but the sensor is not sending a signal to the lights and to the transmission, therefore not allowing you to shift.

check the brake switch behind the brake pedal...it's further up the braking arm....when you push down on the brake, the arm moves down and back, and depresses the switch

I will take a look to the brake switch. BTW, is the brake switch also the switch for unlock the shift lock?

Yup, it basically tells the computer that you have the brake down, and activated the brake lights and allows you to shift out of gear.

Thanks for you guys. Now I am pretty sure the stop light switch is broken. I hope it won't be expensive to replace.
