Default 2002 Camry no braking

I have a 2002 Camry - V4. It has about 110K miles on it.

I got into the car this afternoon and tried to start it. The brake did
not work and I noticed the oil indicator lit up. I tried to put the car
in reverse, but the car started going forward. Scared I shut the car
down and restarted it. Everything was fine from then on.

Any comments on why that may have happened?

- Amar.

Your calendar is on the wrong page. It's not April Fool's Day.

wondering if someone died in your car while they were building it and
their ghost is haunting the car. Just wierd. (you weren't drunk when
you got in it were you?J/K)

Good one! I wish I could say I was drunk at that time!

I am concerned about why the car behaved weird. I use this car for work
and school (about 150 miles a day) and hence am trying to find out what
may have happened.

Maybe the "computer" is hosed. Try disconnecting the battery for a few
minutes. Reapplying power will cause the various microprocessors to
initialize.

The 2002 has a brake assist system. Maybe it's malfunctioning, instead
of boosting pressure it leaked out all pressure. Dunno.

If you were sober and sane Then I suggest reporting to NHTSA. That
can be a serious safety hazard. Besides, they may investigate it for
free.

Are you sure the engine was running? Oil pressure light, no vacuum for the
brake booster, no juice to keep the car from rolling when the parking pawl
is disengaged? Those Camrys are awful quiet. I know I've ground the
flywheel with the starter once or twice over the years.
We've all had "one or two" (read: crap-faced) and become panic stricken
when the engine doesn't start after we forget to turn the key all the way,
don't worry. Are you drinking right now?

Thats what it sounds like, the motor was not running, was the radio on
too.
