Default Reverse Gear Indicator is always On

I have 1997 camry LE
Yesterday, I dont know what happened.

The reverse gear light is always on now, even when
the car is running in D - ie, Drive gear.

At the same time, the check engine light has come ON.

What could be cause of this problem?

This could be some censor problem or real problem.
thanks for your ideas/help.

most places like Advance auto will use
their scan tool to read the code(s).
Get the exact codes and report back..

I had this problem on my 96 Camry.The reverse gear indicator was staying on
for a while then coming off.
The problem I found was in the trunk .The wires going to the rear lights
got caught in the left hand trunk hinge and were shorting from time to
time.As soon as I fixed this problem , the indicator problem was fixed.
