Suspension & Steering, August 10, 1998
RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling 1994 Camry models because the steering wheel set nut may not have been sufficiently tightened, which may cause steering vibration and looseness. The nut may eventually come off, allowing the steering wheel to separate from the steering shaft. This can lead to a loss of vehicle control, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will re-tighten the steering set nut.

Electrical & Lights, December 15, 1997
RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.
