1997 Toyota Camry RecallsRecall 99V307000
Toyota is recalling 1997 Camrys due to a possible jamming of the lock pin of the key interlock solenoid, which makes it possible to remove the ignition key when the shift lever is not in the "Park" position. This may cause the driver to fail to move the shift lever into "Park," which can cause the parking brake not to activate. Dealers will replace the key interlock solenoid.
