I'm using an '02 Camry at the moment, and it has over 175,000 miles but is working fine; that's what the autoshop and my dad said however. I can't seem to agree. Apparently, this one issue hasnt come up with the autoshop the car was at recently, or when my father was driving the vehicle!

The problem:

Every time I take somewhat of a SHARP RIGHT TURN, the "BRAKE" and "ABS" lights pop on my dashboard, my stereo shuts off automatically, and sometimes, even THE CAR SHUTS OFF ENTIRELY.

Ok, maybe I'm an aggressive driver at times, but honestly, should this be happening? And even if some of this is possible, SHOULD THE CAR BE SHUTTING OFF ON THE ROAD??? I have been noticing this problem with my Camry whenever I take a hard right turn. This hasn't occurred to my dad, and his opinion is that the car is fine, and that I should drive slower. But in my mind, either way, the car shouldnt be turning off in the middle of the road.

The one thing that is remarkable is that even when the car shuts off, it restarts right after---

SOMEONE HELP ME, WHAT IS WRONG??!!??

your car should no be turning off for any reason while driving. not sure what the problem is, i would probably take it to your toyota dealer or a reputable local car shop for them to check it out. it might be a bad fuel pump or something.

I would start my trouble shooting in the steering column. Sounds like there is some wires or connections that are shorting out when you turn the steering wheel hard right. Possibly the area around the ignition. This would shut off electricity to the engine.
