Default 1997 camry dashlight on

I bought my camry used, so I don't have a owners manual with it. Just
recently a light started coming on intermittently. It's the first "idiot"
light on the dash next to the seat belt light. Appears to be a car with
either the front or rear lights accentuated. I've checked both front and
rear lights and they appear to be opperating correctly. Sometimes if I
turn off my headlights for a min, the light will go off. Any idea of what
this is? I'm sure someone out there has more knowledge than I have, since
I have none Thank you in advance.

A bulb is burnt out, try looking at all your lights and turn signal and
brake light operation. Its probably a brake light.

Start your car without your foot on the brake pedal. Turn on your lights
and watch the dash light out indicator, if the dash indicator comes on
then you have a tail light out. If no dash light indicator comes on, press
on the brake pedal while watching the dash indicator. Now if the light
comes on, you have a brake light out. Have someone outside of the vehicle
to help tell which bulb is out.
