Question Asked: 

Why doesn't anyone read their owners manual anymore? 85% of the questions asked here are covered in the owners manual. If you don't have your owners manual get one most can be found free online, junked cars, or just pay for one at the dealer they are worth it.

Question Answered: 

I would guess it may be the Blower Motor Resistor, it runs about $35 and is usually located behind the glove box near the blower motor.

Question Answered: 

I would still go with a new control module. Make sure you use the di-electric grease as instructed. The part should run $50 or less.

Question Answered: 

You can probably get the switch at any parts store, or as a last resort the dealer. They are relatively easy to replace. Look under the dashboard above the brake pedal, it will mount so that the round end of the switch is up against the brake pedal lever.

Question Answered: 

I can't find one, the manual only lists the EGR valve, vacuum modulator for the EGR and a vacuum switching valve (VSV) for the EGR. Get all the 1999 Camry manuals here: http://www.camrystuff.com/index.php?page=Gen4_Manuals

Question Answered: 

If the brake lights do not work and the transmission will not shift out of park I would check the brake light switch. I may just need to be adjusted. even if it needs to be replaced it is very straight forward.

Question Asked: 

Is there any way to check the O2 sensors with a volt/ohm meter? The factory manual says to use an oscilloscope but I do not have access to one. I get a 0420 code (catalyst efficiency below threshold)But I would like to make sure it isn't just a lazy sensor. It is my understanding that this car has 2 Cats, 1 at the exhaust maniflod and 1 in the pipe ahead of the muffler. How would I know which one has gone bad or do you just replace both (expensive). By the way the emissions sticker says this car approved for CAL & OTC OBD II certified.
