Thank you for allowing me to help you with this concern today and am sorry to hear that this is happening. I will have to ask you a few questions so that I can get a better understanding as to what may be going on with your Camry.

This is actually becoming a common problem that we see more and more as these Camry's start to age. Does this video look like what you are experiencing?

Expert:  Genchi Genbutsu replied 10 months ago.

The problem is the ABS unit itself and it needs to be replaced. Here is a second video showing that you can replace the ECU portion of the assembly and bot just the whole thing.

If you have more questions, please ask as I strive to give Excellent service. Also please take the time to rate my help (1-5 stars), as it helps me as I have just helped you.
