Default 99 Camry LE - Reverse indicator light

When car is in drive, the "R" indicator remains lit (in addition to the
"D" indicator light) on the dash. Actually the "R" stays lit
regardless of which "gear" setting you are in.

Any ideas?

There is probably a sticky contact in the console causing the light to
stay on. Spilled any coffee/coke lately?

You might have to pull the console and then remove the plate over the
shifter and try cleaning it.

How complicated is this removal?

Getting the console out should be a matter of removing some screws, clasps
and snaps.

Getting the plate out is a PITA. Luckily, all I've ever had to do was just
blow the crap out of there or vacuum it. Also, snapping the plate would
not be a good thing! I believe it's screwed in near the base of the
shifter.

ITS NONE OF THE ANSWERS ABOVE!!!!!

Open the trunk
look at the driver side hinge of the trunk lid
see the black wrapped wire bundle attached to the left hinge?
unwrap the covering and look for one broken wire'
you will have to splice in a short piece of wire to the broken set to make it
longer.
retape the wire bundle

problem solved

i have fixed 5 of these in the past
