Toyota hybrid system
Fuel consumption indicators
Toyota hybrid system combines the
power of an engine and a traction motor to minimize fuel consumption and
emissions.
In your hybrid vehicle, there are several
indicators that show different aspects
of fuel consumption:
Depending on driving conditions, the vehicle runs optimally on a combination of
the engine and traction motor.
Since the engine charges the hybrid battery as needed, the battery does not have
to be charged from an outside source like
an electric vehicle.
Instrument cluster indicators

Efficient use of your hybrid
vehicle
Drive your vehicle with smooth acceleration and deceleration.
D While driving, energy
is recovered
through the regenerative brake as the
vehicle decelerates. However, for efficient use, do not accelerate or decelerate your vehicle more than necessary.
D Avoid abrupt acceleration and deceleration.
D The power of the hybrid battery can be
checked on the multi−information display or the navigation system screen
(with navigation system). See “—Hybrid
battery status” on page 5 for details.
Gradual or non−abrupt acceleration and
deceleration will make more effectively
use of the traction motor without having to use engine power.
When parking, be sure to put the transmission into the “P” position. While
driving, put the transmission into the
“D” position.
D In the “N” position, the engine operates
but electricity cannot be generated. The
hybrid battery will be discharged requiring unnecessary engine power to recharge.

—The characteristics of the
hybrid vehicle
Be sure to put the transmission in the
“P” position when parking.
In the “N” position, the hybrid battery
does not recharge, even if the engine is
operating. Leaving the transmission in the
“N” position for an extended period of time
may discharge the hybrid battery. The vehicle cannot run if the hybrid battery is
discharged.
When you leave your vehicle, apply the
parking brake, put the transmission in
the “P” position, be sure to carry the
key with you and lock all the doors.
If you leave the “POWER” switch at
“ACC” or “ON”, the 12 volt battery will be
discharged and the hybrid system may not
start.
D Because the vehicle is powered by
both the engine and the traction motor,
you may hear a motor sound coming
from the engine compartment. However,
this does not indicate any trouble.
D When the hybrid system is started or
stopped, you may hear a sound coming
from the hybrid battery behind the rear
seats. However, this does not indicate
any trouble.

Road accident cautions—
CAUTION
D Pull your vehicle off the road, put
the transmission in the “P” position, apply the parking brake, turn
the hybrid system off and carry the
key.
D In order to avoid death or serious
injury, do not touch high voltage
wiring, connectors or high voltage
parts (inverter unit, hybrid battery
and etc.). High voltage parts and
cables are indicated in the illustration on page 7.
D If exposed electric wires are pro-
truding inside or outside of your
vehicle, an electric shock may occur. Never touch the electric wires.
D If fluid leaks or gets into some
parts of the vehicle, never touch it
because it may be strong alkaline
electrolyte from the hybrid battery.
If it contacts your skin or eyes,
wash it off immediately with a large
amount of water or if possible, boric acid solution. Get immediate
medical attention in order to help
avoid serious injury.
—Emergency shut off system
D If a fire occurs in the hybrid ve-
hicle, leave the vehicle as soon as
possible. Never use a fire extinguisher that is not meant for electric fires. Using a small amount of
water may be also dangerous.
D If your vehicle needs to be towed,
do it with the front wheels raised.
If the wheels with the motor generator are on the ground when towing, the motor may continue to generate electricity. This may cause the
electricity leakage. Depending on
the severity of the damage, electricity leakage may cause fire. See “If
your vehicle needs to be towed” on
page 327 in Section 4.
The emergency shut off system blocks
off the high voltage current and stops
the fuel pump to minimize the risk of
the electric leakage and the fuel leakage when a certain level of impact is
detected by the impact sensor. If the
system activates, your vehicle will not
restart. To restart the hybrid system,
contact a Toyota dealer.
CAUTION
D Check to see if there are exposed
high voltage parts and cables. Never touch the parts and cables. See
“—High voltage components” on
page 7 in this Section for the locations of the high voltage parts and
cables.
D Inspect the ground under the ve-
hicle. If you find that liquid has
leaked onto the ground, the fuel
system may have been damaged.
Leave the vehicle as soon as possible.

Seats
While the vehicle is being driven, all vehicle occupants should have the seatback
upright, sit well back in the seat and properly wear the seat belts provided.
CAUTION
D Do not drive the vehicle unless the
occupants are properly seated. Do
not allow any passengers to sit on
top of a folded−down seatback, or
in the luggage compartment or cargo area. Persons not properly
seated and/or not properly restrained by seat belts can be killed
or severely injured in the event of
emergency braking or a collision.
D During driving, do not allow any
passengers to stand up or move
around between seats. Otherwise,
death or severe injuries can occur
in the event of emergency braking
or a collision.

CAUTION
The SRS driver airbag deploys with
considerable force, and can cause
death or serious injury especially if
the driver is very close to the airbag.
The National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (“NHTSA”) advises:
Since the risk zone for driver airbag
is the first 50—75 mm (2—3 in.) of
inflation, placing yourself 250 mm (10
in.) from your driver airbag provides
you with a clear margin of safety.
This distance is measured from the
center of the steering wheel to your
breastbone. If you sit less than 250
mm (10 in.) away now, you can
change your driving position in several ways:
D Move your seat to the rear as far
seat. Although vehicle designs vary,
many drivers can achieve the 250
mm (10 in.) distance, even with the
driver seat all the way forward, simply by reclining the back of the
seat somewhat. If reclining the back
of your seat makes it hard to see
the road, raise yourself by using a
firm, non−slippery cushion, or raise
the seat if your vehicle has that
feature.
D If your steering wheel is adjustable,
tilt it downward. This points the airbag toward your chest instead of
your head and neck.
The seat should be adjusted as recommended by NHTSA above, while
still maintaining control of the foot
pedals, steering wheel, and your view
of the instrument panel controls.

CAUTION
CAUTION
CAUTION
The SRS front passenger airbag also
deploys with considerable force, and
can cause death or serious injury especially if the front passenger is very
close to the airbag. The front passenger seat should be as far from the
airbag as possible with the seatback
adjusted, so the front passenger sits
upright.
The SRS side airbags are installed in
the driver and front passenger seats.
Observe the following precautions.
D Do not lean against the front door
when the vehicle is in use, since
the side airbag inflates with considerable speed and force. Otherwise,
you may be killed or seriously injured.
D Do not use seat accessories which
cover the area where the side airbags inflate. Such accessories may
prevent the side airbags from activating correctly, causing death or
serious injury.
D Do not modify or replace the seats
or upholstery of the seats. Such
change may prevent the side airbag
system from activating correctly,
disable the system, or cause the
side airbags to inflate accidentally,
resulting in death or serious injury.
D Do not adjust the seat while the
vehicle is moving as the seat may
unexpectedly move and cause the
driver to lose control of the vehicle.
D Be careful that the seat does not
hit a passenger or luggage.
D After adjusting the seat position, re-
lease the lever and try sliding the
seat forward and backward to make
sure it is locked in position.
D After adjusting the seatback, push
your body back against the seat to
make sure the seat is locked in
position.
D Do not put objects under the seats.
Otherwise, the objects may interfere
with the seat−lock mechanism or
unexpectedly push up the seat position adjusting lever and the seat
may suddenly move, causing the
driver to lose control of the vehicle.

If a child is too large for a child restraint
system, the child should sit in the rear
seat and must be restrained using the
vehicle’s seat belt. According to accident
statistics, the child is safer when properly
restrained in the rear seat than in the
front seat.
If a child must sit in the front seat, the
seat belts should be worn properly. If an
accident occurs and the seat belts are not
worn properly, the force of the rapid inflation of the airbag may cause death or
serious injury to the child.
Do not allow any children to stand up or
kneel on either rear or front seats. An
unrestrained child could suffer serious injury or death during emergency braking or
a collision. Also, do not let the child sit
on your lap. Holding a child in your arms
does not provide sufficient restraint.
Pregnant woman. Toyota recommends the
use of a seat belt. Ask your doctor for
specific recommendations. The lap belt
should be worn securely and as low as
possible over the hips and not on the
waist.
Injured person. Toyota recommends the
use of a seat belt. Depending on the injury, first check with your doctor for specific
recommendations.
CAUTION
Persons should ride in their seats
properly wearing their seat belts
whenever the vehicle is moving.
Otherwise, they are much more likely
to suffer serious bodily injury or
death in the event of sudden braking
or a collision.
When using the seat belts, observe
the following:
D Use the belt for only one person at
a time. Do not use a single belt for
two or more people—even children.
D Avoid reclining the seatback any
more than needed. The seat belts
provide maximum protection in a
frontal or rear collision when the
driver and the front passenger are
sitting up straight and well back in
the seats. If you are reclined, the
lap belt may slide past your hips
and apply restraint forces directly
to the abdomen or your neck may
contact the shoulder belt. In the
event of a frontal collision, the
more the seat is reclined, the greater the risk of death or serious injury.

D Be careful not to damage the belt
webbing or hardware. Take care that
they do not get caught or pinched
in the seat or doors.
When a passenger’s shoulder belt is completely extended and is then retracted
even slightly, the belt is locked in that
position and cannot be extended. This feature is used to hold the child restraint
system securely. (For details, see “Child
restraint” on page 96 in this Section.) To
free the belt again, fully retract the belt
and then pull the belt out once more.

D Inspect the belt system periodically.
Check for cuts, fraying, and loose
parts. Damaged parts should be replaced. Do not disassemble or
modify the system.
D Keep the belts clean and dry. If
they need cleaning, use a mild soap
solution or lukewarm water. Never
use bleach, dye, or abrasive cleaners, or allow them to come into
contact with the belts—they may
severely weaken the belts. (See
“Cleaning the interior” on page 336
in Section 5.)
D Replace the belt assembly (includ-
ing bolts) if it has been used in a
severe impact. The entire assembly
should be replaced even if damage
is not obvious.
If the seat belt cannot be pulled out of the

To release the belt, press the buckle
release button and allow the belt to
retract.
If the belt does not retract smoothly, pull
it out and check for kinks or twists. Then
make sure it remains untwisted as it retracts.
The outside shoulder belt comfort
guides for the rear seat outside positions will provide added seat belt comfort for children who have outgrown
child restraints and for small adults.
When the outside shoulder belt is inserted through the guide, the comfort
guide pulls the belt away from the neck
and head of an occupant.
Seat belt comfort guides are stored in the
both pockets on the sides of the rear
seatback.
To use the comfort guide, do as follows.

INSTALLING THE COMFORT GUIDE
1. Pull out the comfort guide from the
pocket.
2. Pinch the two edges of the shoulder
belt for the rear seat outside position with your fingers and slide the
belt past the slot of the guide as
shown above. At this time, the elastic cord must be behind the seat
belt.
CAUTION
Make sure the belt is not twisted and
that it lies flat. The elastic cord must
be behind the belt and the guide
must be on the front.
3. Buckle, position and release the seat
belt. (For wearing the seat belt, see
“—Fastening front and rear seat
belts” on page 67 in this Section.)
CAUTION
Always make sure the shoulder belt
is positioned across the center of the

elastic cord into the pocket.
CAUTION
To reduce the chance of injury in
case of an accident or a sudden stop
while driving, remove and store the
comfort guide in its pocket when it is
not in use.
CAUTION
When using the seat belt extender,
observe the following precautions.
Failure to follow these instructions
could reduce the effectiveness of the
seat belt restraint system in case of
an accident, increasing the chance of
death or serious injury.
D Remember that the extender pro-
vided for you may not be safe when
used on a different vehicle, for
another person, or at a different
seating position than the one originally intended.
D If the seat belt extender has been
connected to the driver’s seat belt
buckle without wearing the seat belt
when using the extender in the
driver’s seat, the SRS driver’s airbag system will judge that the driver wears the seat belt even if not
wearing it. In this case, the driver’s
airbag may not activate correctly,
causing death or serious injury in
the event of collision. Be sure to
wear the seat belt with the seat belt
extender.

sure the “AIRBAG ON”
indicator light is illuminated when
using the seat belt extender for the
front
passenger
seat.
If
the
“AIRBAG OFF” indicator light is
illuminated, disconnect the extender
tongue from the seat belt buckle,
then reconnect the seat belt.
Reconnect the seat belt extender
after making sure the “AIRBAG ON”
indicator light is illuminated. If you
use the seat belt extender while the
“AIRBAG OFF” indicator light is
illuminated, the front passenger
airbag and side airbag on the front
passenger side may not activate
correctly, causing death or serious
injury in the event of collision.
D Be sure to wear the seat belt with-
out the seat belt extender if you
can fasten the seat belt without the
extender.
D Do not use the seat belt extender
when installing a child restraint
system on the front or rear passenger seat. If installing a child restraint system with the seat belt
extender connected to the seat belt,
the seat belt will not securely hold
the child restraint system, which
could cause death or serious injury
to the child or other passengers in
the event of collision.
To connect the extender to the seat
belt, insert the tab into the seat belt
buckle so that the “PRESS” signs on
the buckle release buttons of the extender and the seat belt are both facing
outward as shown.
You will hear a click when the tab locks
into the buckle.
When releasing the seat belt, press on
the buckle release button on the extender,
not on the seat belt. This helps prevent
damage to the vehicle interior and extender itself.

As far as the seat belt extender on the
front passenger side is concerned, do not
fail to disconnect the extender from the
seat belt after the above operation in order to activate the front passenger airbag
correctly when getting into the vehicle
next time.
The front passenger’s seat belt pretensioner will not activate if no passenger is
detected in the front passenger seat by
the front passenger occupant classification
system. However, the front passenger’s
seat belt pretensioner may activate if luggage is put on the seat, or the seat belt
is buckled up regardless of the presence
of an occupant in the seat. (As for the

SRS airbags—
—SRS driver airbag, driver
knee airbag and front
passenger airbag
In response to a severe frontal impact,
the SRS front airbags work with the seat
belts to help reduce injury by inflating.
The SRS front airbags help reduce injuries
mainly to the driver’s or front passenger’s
head, chest or knee caused by hitting the
vehicle interior.
In the following cases, contact your Toyota
dealer as soon as possible:
D The front of the vehicle (shaded in the
illustration) was involved in an accident
that was not severe enough to cause
the seat belt pretensioners to operate.
D Either seat belt pretensioner assembly
or surrounding area is scratched,
cracked, or otherwise damaged.
The SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) front airbags are designed to provide further protection for the driver
and front passenger in addition to the
primary safety protection provided by
the seat belts.
The SRS front passenger airbag will not
activate if there is no passenger sitting in
the front passenger seat. However, the
front passenger airbag may deploy if luggage is put in the seat, or the seat belt
is buckled up, regardless of the presence
of an occupant in the seat. (As for the
front passenger occupant classification
system, see “—Front passenger occupant
classification system” on page 92 in this
Section.)
Always wear your seat belt properly.
Your vehicle is equipped with “ADVANCED
AIRBAGS” designed based on US motor
vehicle safety standards (FMVSS208). The
airbag system controls airbag deployment
power for the driver and front passenger.
The driver airbag system consists of the
driver seat’s position sensor etc. The front
passenger’s airbag system consists of the
front passenger occupant classification
sensor etc.

CAUTION
D The SRS front airbag system is de-
signed only as a supplement to the
primary protection of the driver and
front passenger seat belt systems.
The driver and front passenger can
be killed or seriously injured by the
inflating airbags if they do not wear
the available seat belts properly.
During sudden braking just before
a collision, an unrestrained driver
or front passenger can move forward into direct contact with or
close proximity to the airbag which
may then deploy during the collision. To ensure maximum protection
in an accident, the driver and all
passengers in the vehicle must
wear their seat belts properly. Wearing a seat belt properly during an
accident reduces the chances of
death or serious injury or being
thrown out of the vehicle. For instructions and precautions concerning the seat belt system, see “Seat
belts” on page 66 in this Section.
D Improperly seated and/or restrained
infants and children can be killed
or seriously injured by the deploying airbags. An infant or child who
is too small to use a seat belt
should be properly secured using a
child
restraint
system.
Toyota
strongly recommends that all infants and children be placed in the
rear seat of the vehicle and properly restrained. The rear seat is the
safest for infants and children. For
instructions concerning the installation of a child restraint system, see
“Child restraint” on page 96 in this
Section.
The SRS front airbags are designed to
deploy in severe (usually frontal) collisions where the magnitude and duration
of the forward deceleration of the vehicle exceeds the designed threshold
level.
The SRS front airbags will deploy if the
severity of the impact is above the designed threshold level, comparable to an
approximate 25 km/h (15 mph) collision
when the vehicle has the impact straight
into a fixed barrier that does not move or
deform.
However, this threshold velocity will be
considerably higher if the vehicle strikes
an object, such as a parked vehicle or
sign pole, which can move or deform on
impact, or if the vehicle is involved in an
underride collision (e.g. a collision in
which the front of the vehicle “underrides”,
or goes under, the bed of a truck, etc.).
It is possible that in some collisions
where the forward deceleration of the vehicle is very close to the designed threshold level, the SRS front airbags and the
seat belt pretensioners may not activate
together.
Always wear your seat belts properly.

Collision from the side
Vehicle rollover
The SRS front airbags are not generally
designed to inflate if the vehicle is involved in a side or rear collision, if it
rolls over, or if it is involved in a low−
speed frontal collision. But, whenever a
collision of any type causes sufficient
forward deceleration of the vehicle, deployment of the SRS front airbags may
occur.
Landing hard or vehicle falling
The SRS front airbags may also deploy
if a serious impact occurs to the underside of your vehicle. Some examples
are shown in the illustration.
The SRS front airbag system consists
mainly of the following components, and
their locations are shown in the illustration.

The airbag sensor assembly consists of a
safing sensor and airbag sensor.
The front airbag sensors constantly monitor the forward deceleration of the vehicle.
If an impact results in a forward deceleration beyond the designed threshold level,
the system triggers the airbag inflators. At
this time a chemical reaction in the inflators very quickly fills the airbags with
non−toxic gas to help restrain the forward
motion of the occupants. The front airbags
then quickly deflate, so that there is no
obstruction of the driver’s vision should it
be necessary to continue driving.
When the airbags inflate, they produce a
loud noise and release some smoke and
residue along with non−toxic gas. This
does not indicate a fire. This smoke may
remain inside the vehicle for some time,
and may cause some minor irritation to
the eyes, skin or breathing. Be sure to
wash off any residue as soon as possible
to prevent any potential skin irritation with
soap and water. If you can safely exit
from the vehicle, you should do so immediately.
Deployment of the airbags happens in a
fraction of a second, so the airbags must
inflate with considerable force. While the
system is designed to reduce serious injuries, primarily to the head and chest, it
may also cause other, less severe injuries
to the face, chest, arms and hands. These
are usually in the nature of minor burns
or abrasions and swelling, but the force of
a deploying airbag can cause more serious injuries, especially if an occupant’s
hands, arms, chest or head is in close
proximity to the airbag module at the time
of deployment. This is why it is important
for the occupant to; avoid placing any
object or part of the body between the
occupant and the airbag module; sit
straight and well back into the seat; wear
the available seat belt properly; and sit as
far as possible from the airbag module,
while still maintaining control of the vehicle.
Parts of the airbag module (steering wheel
hub, lower portion of driver’s side instrument panel, airbag cover and inflator) may
be hot for several minutes after deployment, so do not touch! The airbags inflate
only once. The windshield may be damaged by absorbing some of the force of
the inflating airbag.

CAUTION
The driver or front passenger who is
too close to the steering wheel, lower
portion of driver’s side instrument
panel or dashboard during airbag deployment can be killed or seriously
injured. Toyota strongly recommends
that:
D The driver sit as far back as pos-
sible from the steering wheel while
still maintaining control of the vehicle.
D The front passenger sit as far back
as possible from the dashboard.
D All vehicle occupants be properly
restrained using the available seat
belts.
For instructions and precautions concerning the seating position, see
“—Front seat precautions” on page
58 in this Section.
D Do not sit on the edge of the seat
or lean against the dashboard when
the vehicle is in use, since the
front passenger airbag could inflate
with considerable speed and force.
Anyone who is up against, or very
close to, an airbag when it inflates,
can be killed or seriously injured.
Sit up straight and well back in the
seat, and always use your seat belt
properly.
D Toyota strongly recommends that all
infants and children be placed in
the rear seat of the vehicle and be
properly restrained.
D Do not hold a child on your lap or
in your arms. Use a child restraint
system in the rear seat. For instructions concerning the installation of
a child restraint system, see “Child

SRS side airbags and curtain shield airbags work with the seat belts to help
reduce injury by inflating. The SRS side
airbags help reduce injuries mainly to the
driver’s or front passenger’s chest, and
the SRS curtain shield airbags help reduce injuries mainly to the driver’s, front
passenger’s or rear outside passenger’s
head.
NOTICE
Do not disconnect the 12 volt battery
cables before contacting your Toyota
dealer.
The SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) side airbags and curtain shield airbags are designed to provide further
protection for the driver, front passenger and rear outside passengers in
addition to the primary safety protection provided by the seat belts.
The SRS side airbag on the passenger
seat will not activate if there is no passenger sitting in the front passenger seat.
However, the side airbag on the passenger seat may deploy if luggage is put in
the seat, or the seat belt is buckled up
regardless of the presence of the occupant in the seat. (As for the front passenger occupant classification system, see
“—Front passenger occupant classification
system” on page 92 in this Section.)
The SRS curtain shield airbag on the passenger side are activated even with no
passenger in the front seat or rear outside
seat.
The SRS curtain shield airbags may activate even when the side airbags are not
activated.
Always wear your seat belt properly.

CAUTION
D The SRS side airbag and curtain
shield airbag system is designed
only as a supplement to the primary protection of the driver, front
passenger and rear outside passenger seat belt systems. To ensure
maximum protection in an accident,
the driver and all passengers in the
vehicle must wear their seat belts
properly. Wearing a seat belt properly during an accident reduces the
chances of death or serious injury
or being thrown out of the vehicle.
For instructions and precautions
concerning the seat belt system,
see “Seat belts” on page 66 in this
Section.
D Do not allow anyone to lean his/her
head or any part of his/her body
against the door or the area of the
seat, front pillar, rear pillar or roof
side rail from which the SRS side
airbag and curtain shield airbag
deploy even if he/she is a child
seated in the child restraint system.
It is dangerous if the SRS side airbag and curtain shield airbag inflate, and the impact of the deploying airbag could cause death or serious injury to the occupant.
D Improperly seated and/or restrained
infants and children can be killed
or seriously injured by the deploying airbags. An infant or child who
is too small to use a seat belt
should be properly secured using a
child
restraint
system.
Toyota
strongly recommends that all infants and children be placed in the
rear seats of the vehicle and properly restrained. The rear seats are
the safest for infants and children.
For instructions concerning the
installation of a child restraint system, see “Child restraint” on page
96 in this Section.

Collision from the rear
Collision from the front
Vehicle rollover
The SRS side airbag and curtain shield
airbag system may not activate if the
vehicle is subjected to a collision from
the side at certain angles, or a collision
to the side of the vehicle body other
than the passenger compartment as
shown in the illustration.
The SRS side airbags and curtain shield
airbags are designed to inflate when the
passenger compartment area suffers a severe impact from the side.
Always wear your seat belts properly.
The SRS side airbags and curtain shield
airbags are not generally designed to
inflate if the vehicle is involved in a
front or rear collision, if it rolls over,
or if it is involved in a low−speed side
collision.
The SRS side airbag and curtain shield
airbag system consists mainly of the following components, and their locations are
shown in the illustration.
1. SRS warning light
2. “AIRBAG ON” and “AIRBAG OFF” indicator lights (for front passenger airbag
and side airbag on the front passenger
seat)
3. Curtain shield airbag modules
(airbag and inflator)
4. Front passenger occupant classification
system (ECU and sensors)
5. Side airbag modules
(airbag and inflator)
86
6. Curtain shield airbag sensors
2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
7. Side and curtain shield airbag sensors
8. Front passenger’s
switch
seat
belt
buckle
9. Airbag sensor assembly
The SRS side airbag and curtain shield
airbag system is controlled by the airbag
sensor assembly. The airbag sensor assembly consists of a safing sensor and
airbag sensor.
In a severe side impact, the side and
curtain shield airbag sensor and/or the
curtain shield airbag sensor trigger(s) the
side airbag inflators and/or the curtain
shield airbag inflators. At this time a
chemical reaction in the inflators quickly
fills the airbags with non−toxic gas to help
restrain the lateral motion of the occupants.
When the airbags inflate, they produce a
fairly loud noise and release some smoke
and residue along with non−toxic gas. This
does not indicate a fire. This smoke may
remain inside the vehicle for some time,
and may cause some minor irritation to
the eyes, skin or breathing. Be sure to
wash off any residue as soon as possible
to prevent any potential skin irritation with
soap and water. If you can safely exit
from the vehicle, you should do so immediately.
Deployment of the airbags happens in a
fraction of a second, so the airbags must
inflate with considerable force. While the
system is designed to reduce serious injuries, it may also cause minor burns or
abrasions and swelling.
Front seats as well as parts of the front
and rear pillars, and roof side rail may be
hot for several minutes, but the airbags
themselves will not be hot. The airbags
are designed to inflate only once.
CAUTION
SRS side airbags and curtain shield
airbags
inflate with considerable
force. To reduce the possibility of
death or serious injury when they inflate, the driver, front passenger and
rear outside passengers must:
D Wear their seat belts properly.
D Remain properly seated with their
backs upright and against the seats
at all times.
D Do not allow anyone to lean against
the door when the vehicle is in use,
since the side airbag and curtain
shield airbag could inflate with considerable speed and force. Otherwise, he/she may be killed or seriously injured. Special care should
be taken especially when you have
a small child in the vehicle.
D Sit up straight and well back in the
seat, distributing your weight evenly
in the seat. Do not apply excessive
weight to the outer side of the
seats with a side airbag and to the
front pillar, rear pillar and roof side
rail with a curtain shield airbag.
87
2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
D Do not allow anyone to get his/her
head close to the area where the
side airbag and curtain shield airbag inflate, since these airbags
could inflate with considerable
speed and force. Otherwise, he/she
may be killed or seriously injured.
Special care should be taken especially when you have a small child
in the vehicle.
D Do not allow anyone to kneel on
the passenger seat, facing the passenger’s side door, since the side
airbag and curtain shield airbag
could inflate with considerable
speed and force. Otherwise, he/she
may be killed or seriously injured.
Special care should be taken especially when you have a small child
in the vehicle.
D Do not allow anyone to get his/her
head or hands out of windows,
since the curtain shield airbags
could inflate with considerable
speed and force. Otherwise, he/she
may be killed or seriously injured.
Special care should be taken especially when you have a small child
in the vehicle.

D Do not hook a hanger, heavy or
sharp pointed objects on the coat
hook. If the curtain shield airbag
inflates, those items will be thrown
away with great force or the curtain
shield airbag may not activate correctly, resulting in death or serious
injury. When you hang clothes,
hang them on the coat hook directly.
D Do not use seat accessories which
D Do not attach a cup holder or any
other device or object on or around
the door. When the side airbag inflates, the cup holder or any other
device or object will be thrown with
great force, or the side airbag may

death or serious injury. Likewise,
the driver and front passenger
should not hold objects in their
arms or on their knees.
D Do not attach a microphone or any
other device or object around the
area where the curtain shield airbag
activates such as on the windshield
glass, side door glass, front and

CAUTION
To avoid potential death or serious
injury when the front passenger occupant classification system does not
detect the conditions correctly, observe the following.
D Do not recline the front passenger
seat seatback so that it interferes
with a rear seat as it may cause the
“AIRBAG OFF” indicator light be illuminated. If the seatback interferes
with the rear seat, return the seatback to a position where it does
not interfere with the rear seat.
Keep the front passenger seatback
as upright as possible when the vehicle is moving. Reclining the seatback excessively may lessen the effectiveness of the seat belt system.
D Make
sure the “AIRBAG ON”
indicator light is illuminated when
using the seat belt extender for the
front
passenger
seat.
If
the
“AIRBAG OFF” indicator light is
illuminated, disconnect the extender
tongue from the seat belt buckle,
then reconnect the seat belt.
Reconnect the seat belt extender
after making sure the “AIRBAG ON”
indicator light is illuminated. If you
use the seat belt extender while the
“AIRBAG OFF” indicator light is
illuminated, the front passenger
airbag and side airbag on the front
passenger side may not activate
correctly, which could cause death
or serious injury in the event of
collision.
D If
an adult sits in the front
passenger seat, the “AIRBAG ON”
indicator light should be illuminated.
If
the
“AIRBAG
OFF”
indicator light is illuminated, ask
the passenger to sit up straight,
well back in the seat, feet on the
floor, and with the seat belt worn
correctly. If the “AIRBAG OFF”
indicator light still remains illuminated, either ask the passenger to
move to the rear seat, or if that is
not
possible,
move
the
front
passenger seat fully rearward.
D Wear the seat belt properly.
D Make sure the front passenger’s
seat belt tab has not been left inserted into the buckle before someone sits in the front passenger
seat.
D Do not apply a heavy load to the
front passenger seat or equipment
(e.g. seatback pocket).

Child restraint—
—Child restraint precautions
D Do not put weight on the front pas-
senger seat by putting your hands
or feet on the front passenger seat
seatback from the rear passenger
seat.
D Do not let a rear passenger lift the
front passenger seat with their feet
or press on the seatback with their
legs.
D Do not put objects under the front
passenger seat.
D Child restraint systems installed on
the rear seat should not contact the
front seatbacks.
D When it is unavoidable to install the
forward−facing child restraint system on the front passenger seat,
install the child restraint system on
the front passenger seat in the
proper order. (As for the installation
order, see “—Child restraint system” on page 98 in this Section.)
D Do not remove the seat.
D Do not kick the front passenger
seat or subject it to severe impact.
Otherwise, the SRS warning light
may come on to indicate a malfunction of the detection system. In this
case, contact your Toyota dealer immediately.
The “AIRBAG ON” indicator light may be
illuminated (the front passenger airbag and
side airbag on the front passenger seat
may deploy) even if observing the above
cautions, when a child sits in, or a forward−facing child restraint system is
installed on the front passenger seat. Refer to all the cautions in “SRS airbags” on
page 77 and “Child restraint” on page 96
in this Section.
Toyota strongly urges the use of appropriate child restraint systems for
children.
The laws of all 50 states in the U.S.A.
and Canada now require the use of a
child restraint system.
Your vehicle conforms to SAEJ1819.
If a child is too large for a child restraint
system, the child should sit in the rear
seat and must be restrained using the
vehicle’s seat belt. See “Seat belts” on
page 66 in this Section for details.
CAUTION
D For effective protection in automo-
bile accidents and sudden stops, a
child must be properly restrained,
using a seat belt or child restraint
system depending on age and size
of the child. Holding a child in your
arms is not a substitute for a child
restraint system. In an accident, the
child can be crushed against the
windshield, or between you and the
vehicle’s interior.

2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
D Toyota strongly urges use of a
proper child restraint system which
conforms to the size of the child,
installed on the rear seat. According to accident statistics, the child
is safer when properly restrained in
the rear seat than in the front seat.
D Never install a rear−facing child re-
straint system on the front passenger seat even if the “AIRBAG OFF”
indicator light is illuminated. In the
event of an accident, the force of
the rapid inflation of the front passenger airbag can cause death or
serious injury to the child if the
rear−facing child restraint system is
installed on the front passenger
seat.
D A forward−facing child restraint sys-
tem should be allowed to be
installed on the front passenger
seat only when it is unavoidable.
Always move the seat as far back
as possible even if the “AIRBAG
OFF” indicator light is illuminated,
because the front passenger airbag
could inflate with considerable
speed and force. Otherwise, the
child may be killed or seriously injured.
D Do not allow the child to lean his/
her head or any part of his/her
body against the door or the area
of the seat, front or rear pillar or
roof side rail from which the side
airbags or curtain shield airbags
deploy even if the child is seated in
the child restraint system. It is dangerous if the side airbags and/or
curtain shield airbags inflate, and
the impact could cause death or
serious injury to the child.
D Do not use the seat belt extender
when installing a child restraint
system on the front or rear passenger seat. If installing a child restraint system with the seat belt
extender connected to the seat belt,
the seat belt will not securely hold
the child restraint system, which
could cause death or serious injury
to the child or other passengers in
the event of collision.
D Make sure you have complied with
all installation instructions provided
by the child restraint manufacturer
and that the system is properly secured. If it is not secured properly,
it may cause death or serious injury
to the child in the event of a sudden stop or accident.

—Child restraint system
A child restraint system for a small
child or baby must itself be properly
restrained on the seat with the lap portion of the lap/shoulder belt. You must
carefully consult the manufacturer’s instructions which accompany the child
restraint system.
To provide proper restraint, use a child
restraint system following the manufacturer’s instructions about the appropriate age
and size of the child for the child restraint
system.
Install the child restraint system correctly
following the instructions provided by its
manufacturer. General directions are also
provided under the following illustrations.
The child restraint system should be
installed on the rear seat. According to
accident statistics, the child is safer when
properly restrained in the rear seat than
in the front seat.
—Types of child restraint
system
Child restraint systems are classified into
the following 3 types depending on the
child’s age and size.
(A) Infant seat
(B) Convertible seat
(C) Booster seat
Install the child restraint system following
the instructions provided by its manufacturer.
Your vehicle has anchor brackets for securing the top strap of a child restraint
system.
For instructions about how to use the anchor bracket, see “—Using a top strap” on

The “AIRBAG OFF” indicator light should
be illuminated when the “POWER” switch
is set at ON and the child is in the child
restraint system after following these procedures. The “AIRBAG OFF” indicator light
indicates the SRS front passenger airbag
and side airbag on the passenger side will
not deploy. If the “AIRBAG ON” indicator
light is illuminated, remove the child restraint system and reinstall it with the hybrid system turned off. If the “AIRBAG
ON” indicator light is illuminated when the
“POWER” switch is set at ON, then the
SRS front passenger airbag and side airbag on the passenger side may deploy in
an accident. Do not drive the vehicle in
this condition. Remove the child restraint

straint system on the front passenger seat. A forward−facing child restraint system should only be
installed on the front passenger
seat when unavoidable. If you must
install the child restraint system on
the front passenger seat, put the
seat in its most rearward position,
and install the forward−facing child
restraint system in the proper order. Otherwise, the front passenger
occupant classification system can
not detect the presence of the child
restraint system and the front passenger airbag and side airbag on
the front passenger seat could
deploy, and the impact could cause
death or serious injury to the child.
D Never install a rear−facing child re-
straint system on the front passenger seat even if the “AIRBAG OFF”
indicator light is illuminated. In the
event of an accident, the impact of
the rapid inflation of the front passenger airbag could cause death or
serious injury to the child if the
rear−facing child restraint system is
installed on the front passenger
seat.

Rear window and outside rear
view mirror defoggers
When waxing your vehicle, make sure that
the washer nozzles do not become
blocked. If a nozzle becomes blocked,
contact your Toyota dealer to have the
vehicle serviced.
The system will automatically shut off
when the operation time has been completed. The operation time is between 15
minutes and 1 hour depending on the ambient temperature and vehicle speed.
NOTICE
CAUTION
If a nozzle becomes blocked, do not
try to clear it with a pin or other
object. The nozzle will be damaged.

Push the switch once again to turn the
defogger off.
Make sure you turn the defoggers off
when the surfaces are clear. Leaving the
defoggers on for a long time could cause
the 12 volt battery to discharge, especially
during stop−and−go driving. The defoggers
are not designed for drying rain water or
for melting snow.
If the outside rear view mirrors are heavily coated with ice, use a spray de−icer
before operating the switch.
NOTICE
When cleaning the inside of the rear
window, be careful not to scratch or
damage the heater wires or connectors.

If the fuel tank is completely empty, the
malfunction indicator lamp comes on. Fill
the fuel tank immediately.
The indicator lamp goes off after driving
several times. If the indicator lamp does
not go off, contact your Toyota dealer as
soon as possible.
The gauge indicates the approximate
quantity of fuel remaining in the tank
when the “POWER” switch is set at ON.
Nearly full—Needle at “F”
Nearly empty—Needle at “E”
The gauge indicates the engine coolant
temperature when the “POWER” switch
is set at ON. The engine operating temperature will vary with changes in
weather and engine load.
It is a good idea to keep the tank over
1/4 full.
1. Red zone
2. Blue zone
If the fuel level approaches “E” or the low
fuel level warning light comes on, fill the
fuel tank as soon as possible.
If the needle moves into the red zone,
your engine is too hot. If your vehicle
overheats, stop your vehicle and allow the
engine to cool.
On inclines or curves, due to the movement of fuel in the tank, the fuel gauge
needle may fluctuate or the low fuel level
warning light may come on earlier than
usual.

D Reducing speed or stopping after high
speed driving.
D Idling for a long period with the air
conditioning on in stop−and−go traffic.
NOTICE
z Do not remove the thermostat in
the engine cooling system as this
may cause the engine to overheat.
The thermostat is designed to control the flow of coolant to keep the
temperature of the engine within
the specified operating range.
z Do not continue driving with an
overheated engine. See “If your vehicle overheats” on page 317 in
Section 4.
The fuel economy meter indicates the
current fuel consumption in analog
form when the engine is running. When
only the traction motor powers the vehicle, the needle indicates “E MODE”.
D The needle may indicate the best rate
on the meter when the engine is running but the fuel is not consumed.

CAUTION
D Do not rely excessively on the
VDIM. Even if the system is operating, you must always drive carefully
and attentively. Reckless driving will
result in an unexpected accident. If
the slip indicator flashes, special
care should be taken.
D Only use tires of specified size. The
size, manufacturer, brand and tread
pattern for all 4 tires should be the
same. If you use any tires other
than specified, or different types or
sizes, the VDIM may not function
correctly. When replacing the tires
or wheels, contact your Toyota dealer.
D Do not modify the suspensions. If
you modify the suspensions, the
VDIM may not function correctly.
D In situations where the road surface
is covered with ice or snow, snow
tires or tire chains should be used.

BRAKE ASSIST FUNCTION
When the “POWER” switch is set at
ON, the “ABS” warning light comes on.
It will go off when the “READY” light
comes on. If the “ABS” warning light
does not come on when the “POWER”
switch is set at ON, contact your
Toyota dealer.
The brake assist function is designed to
assist with emergency braking. When the
driver suddenly depresses the brake pedal, the device treats it as emergency braking and adds braking force.
If the “ABS” warning light remains on
after the “POWER” switch is set at ON
or if it comes on while driving, the
anti−lock brake system function may
not operate properly. Although the
brake system operates without the function, drive carefully and have your vehicle checked by a Toyota dealer as
soon as possible. For details, see “Service reminder indicators and warning
buzzers” on page 150 in Section 1−6.
If you slam the brakes on or apply the
brakes more firmly, more powerful braking
will be applied.
CAUTION
Message “CHECK VSC SYSTEM”
If “CHECK VSC SYSTEM” appears on
the multi−information display, the traction control and vehicle stability control
functions may not operate properly. Although the brake system operates normally without these functions, drive
carefully and have your vehicle checked
by a Toyota dealer as soon as possible.
For details, see “—Messages” on page
140 in Section 1−6.
The brake assist function is not designed to shorten braking distance.
Always drive at a moderate speed and
maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. Depending on
road conditions, braking distance may
be longer than that of a vehicle without the brake assist device. If tire
chains are used, braking distance
may become longer.

2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
ANTI−LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM FUNCTION
The anti−lock brake system function is designed to help prevent lock−up of the
wheels during sudden braking or when
braking on slippery road conditions. This
assists in providing directional stability
and steering performance of the vehicle
under these circumstances.
Effective way to press the ABS brake
pedal: When the brake pedal is depressed and the anti−lock brake system
function is in action, the slip indicator
flashes. In this situation, to let the anti−
lock brake system work for you, just
hold the brake pedal down more firmly.
Do not pump the brake in a panic stop.
This will result in reduced braking performance.
Depressing the brake pedal on slippery
road surfaces such as on a manhole cover, a steel plate at a construction site,
joints in a bridge, etc. on a rainy day
tends to activate the anti−lock brake system function.
When the anti−lock brake system function
is activated, you may hear the anti−lock
brake system function operating sound
and the vibrations of the vehicle body and
steering wheel. You may also hear the
motor sound in the engine compartment
even after the vehicle is stopped. However, it does not indicate any trouble.
CAUTION
The anti−lock brake system function
is not designed to shorten braking
distance. Always drive at a moderate
speed and maintain a safe distance
from the vehicle in front of you. Depending on road conditions, braking
distance may be longer than that of
a vehicle without the anti−lock brake
system. If tire chains are used, braking distance may become longer.
Compared with vehicles without an
anti−lock brake device, your vehicle
may require a longer stopping distance in the following cases:
D Driving on rough, gravel or snow−
covered roads.
D Driving with tire chains installed.
D Driving over the steps such as the
joints on the road.
D Driving on roads where the road
surface is pitted or has other differences in surface height.
If tire grip performance exceeds its
capability, or if hydroplaning occurs
during high speed driving in the rain,
the anti−lock brake system does not
provide vehicle control.

TRACTION CONTROL FUNCTION
The traction control function is designed to
help prevent skid of the drive wheels during sudden acceleration on slippery road
surfaces.
You may feel vibration or noise in your
vehicle, caused by operation of the
brakes.
CAUTION
Under certain slippery road conditions, full traction of the vehicle and
power against drive wheels cannot be
maintained, even though the traction
control system is in operation. Do not
drive the vehicle under any speed or
maneuvering conditions which may
cause the vehicle to lose traction
control. In situations where the road

The tire pressure warning light may turn
on due to natural causes such as natural
air leaks or tire inflation pressure changes
caused by temperature. In this case, adjusting the tire inflation pressure will turn
off the light after a few minutes.
Pushing the tire pressure warning reset
switch does not turn off the tire pressure
warning light. Adjusting the tire inflation
pressure will turn off the light.
The compact spare tire is not equipped
with the tire pressure warning valve and
transmitter. If a tire goes flat, the warning
light will not turn off even though the flat
tire is replaced with the spare tire. Replace the spare tire with the repaired tire
and adjust the proper tire inflation pressure. The tire pressure warning light will turn
off after a few minutes.
CAUTION
Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly
when cold and inflated to the inflation
pressure recommended by the vehicle
manufacturer on the vehicle placard
or tire inflation pressure label (tire
and load information label). (If your
vehicle has tires of a different size
than the size indicated on the vehicle
placard or tire inflation pressure label
(tire and load information label), you
should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)
As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire
pressure monitoring system (TPMS–
tire pressure warning system) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale
(tire pressure warning light) when one
or more of your tires is significantly
under−inflated. Accordingly, when the
low tire pressure telltale (tire pressure warning light) illuminates, you
should stop and check your tires as
soon as possible, and inflate them to
the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under−inflated tire causes
the tire to overheat and can lead to
tire failure. Under−inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread
life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
170
2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
Please note that the TPMS (tire pressure warning system) is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and
it is the driver’s responsibility to
maintain correct tire pressure, even if
under−inflation has not reached the
level to trigger illumination of the
TPMS low tire pressure telltale (tire
pressure warning light).
NOTICE
z Do not use liquid sealants for a flat
tire as tire pressure warning valve
and transmitter will be damaged.
z When the tires must be repaired or
replaced, have them repaired or replaced by the nearest Toyota dealer

If you need acceleration—for example,
when passing—depress the accelerator
pedal enough for the vehicle to exceed
the set speed. When you release it, the
vehicle will return to the speed set prior
to the acceleration.
The cruise control indicator light remains
on to indicate that the system is still in
operation.
CANCELLING THE CRUISE CONTROL
If the cruise control automatically cancels
out other than for the above cases, have

Audio system operating hints
NOTICE
To ensure correct audio system operations:
z Be careful not to spill beverages
over the audio system.
z Do not put anything other than a
compact disc into the slot.
z The use of a cellular phone inside
or near the vehicle may cause a
noise from the speakers of the audio system which you are listening
to. However, this does not indicate
a malfunction.
RADIO RECEPTION
Usually, a problem with radio reception
does not mean there is a problem with
your radio—it is just the normal result of
conditions outside the vehicle.
For example, nearby buildings and terrain
can interfere with FM reception. Power
lines or telephone wires can interfere with
AM signals. And of course, radio signals
have a limited range. The farther you are
from a station, the weaker its signal will
be. In addition, reception conditions
change constantly as your vehicle moves.
Here are some common reception problems that probably do not indicate a problem with your radio:
FM
Fading and drifting stations—Generally, the
effective range of FM is about 40 km (25
miles). Once outside this range, you may
notice fading and drifting, which increase
with the distance from the radio transmitter. They are often accompanied by distortion.
Multi−path—FM signals are reflective,
making it possible for two signals to reach
your antenna at the same time. If this
happens, the signals will cancel each other out, causing a momentary flutter or
loss of reception.
Static and fluttering—These occur when
signals are blocked by buildings, trees, or
other large objects. Increasing the bass
level may reduce static and fluttering.
Station swapping—If the FM signal you
are listening to is interrupted or weakened, and there is another strong station
nearby on the FM band, your radio may
tune in the second station until the original signal can be picked up again.
AM
Fading—AM broadcasts are reflected by
the upper atmosphere—especially at night.
These reflected signals can interfere with
those received directly from the radio station, causing the radio station to sound
alternately strong and weak.
Station interference—When a reflected signal and a signal received directly from a
radio station are very nearly the same
frequency, they can interfere with each
other, making it difficult to hear the broadcast.
Static—AM is easily affected by external
sources of electrical noise, such as high
tension power lines, lightening, or electrical motors. This results in static.

Alternation or modifications carried out
without appropriate authorization may invalidate the user’s right to operate the

TERMS
ISO 9660 format—
WMA—
Packet write—
This is the international standard for the
formatting of CD−ROM folders and files.
For the ISO 9660 format, there are two
levels of regulations.
WMA (Windows Media Audio) is an audio
compression
format
developed
by
Microsoft. It compresses files into a size
smaller than that of MP3 files. The
decoding formats for WMA files are Ver.
7, 8, and 9.
This is a general term that describes the
process of writing data on−demand to
CD−R, etc., in the same way that data is
written to floppy or hard discs.
ID3 Tag—
This is a method of embedding track−related information in an MP3 file. This embedded information can include the track
title, the artist’s name, the album title, the
music genre, the year of production, comments and other data. The contents can
be freely edited using software with ID3
tag editing functions. Although the tags
are restricted to the number of characters,
the information can be viewed when the
track is played back.
WMA Tag—
WMA files can contain a WMA tag that is
used in the same way as an ID3 tag.
WMA tags carry information such as track
title, artist name.
Level 1:
The file name is in 8.3 format (8 character file names, with a 3 character file
extension. File names must be composed
of one−byte capital letters and numbers.
The “_” symbol may also be included.)
Level 2:
The file name can have up to 31 characters (including the separation mark “.” and
file extension). Each folder must contain
fewer than 8 hierarchies.
m3u—
Playlists created using “WINAMP” software
have a playlist file extension (.m3u).
MP3—
MP3 is an audio compression standard
determined by a working group (MPEG) of
the ISO (International Standard Organization). MP3 compresses audio data to
about 1/10 the size of that on conventional discs.

To turn on the air conditioning, press the
“A/C” button. The “A/C” button indicator
will come on. To turn the air conditioning
off, press the button again.
The Plasmacluster TM∗ helps to keep
good air quality in the cabin by emiting
positive and negative ions into the cabin.
If the “A/C” button indicator flashes, there
is a problem in the air conditioning system
and the air conditioning automatically
shuts off. If this happens, take your vehicle to a Toyota dealer for service.
Operating the air conditioning system allows positive and negative ions to come
out from the driver’s side vent.
A low noise may be heard during operation. This is not a malfunction.
Static electricity may be discharged near
the driver’s side vent because high voltage is used to operate the system.
To clean the driver’s side vent, wipe the
vent using a soft cloth after turning the
system off.
CAUTION
Do not disassemble or repair the system because it contains high voltage
parts. Call your Toyota dealer if the

—Air flow selector settings
—Operating tips
D To cool off your Toyota after it has
been parked in the hot sun, drive with
the windows open for a few minutes.
This vents the hot air, allowing the air
conditioning to cool the interior more
quickly.
D Make sure the air intake grilles in front
of the windshield are not blocked (by
leaves or snow, for example).
D On humid days, do not blow cold air
on the windshield. The windshield could
fog up because of the difference in air
temperature on the inside and outside
of the windshield.
D Keep the area under the front seats
clear to allow air to circulate throughout the vehicle.
D On cold days, set the fan speed to
high for a minute to help clear the
intake ducts of snow or moisture. This
can reduce the amount of fogging on
the windows.
D When driving on dusty roads, close all
windows. If dust thrown up by the vehicle is still drawn into the vehicle after
closing the windows, it is recommended
that the air intake selector be set to
FRESH and the fan speed selector to
any setting except “OFF”.
246

D If following another vehicle on a dusty
road, or driving in windy and dusty
conditions, it is recommended that the
air intake selector be temporarily set to
RECIRCULATE, which will close off the
outside passage and prevent outside
air and dust from entering the vehicle
interior.

Break−in period
Fuel
Drive gently and avoid high speeds.
FUEL TYPE
OCTANE RATING
Your vehicle does not need an elaborate
break−in. But following a few simple tips
for the first 1600 km (1000 miles) can add
to the future economy and long life of
your vehicle:
Your new vehicle must use only unleaded gasoline.
Select Octane Rating 87 (Research Octane Number 91) or higher.
To help prevent gas station mix−ups, your
Toyota has a smaller fuel tank opening.
The special nozzle on pumps with unleaded fuel will fit it, but the larger standard nozzle on pumps with leaded gas will
not.
Use of unleaded gasoline with an octane
rating lower than 87 may result in engine
knocking. Persistent knocking can lead to
engine damage.
D Avoid full throttle acceleration when
starting and driving.
D Avoid racing the hybrid system.
D Try to avoid hard stops during the first
D Do not drive for a long time at any
At a minimum, the gasoline you use
should meet the specifications of ASTM
D4814 in the U.S.A. and CGSB 3.5−M93
in Canada.
D Do not tow a trailer during the first 800
NOTICE
300 km (200 miles).
single speed, either fast or slow.
km (500 miles).
Do not use leaded gasoline. Use of
leaded gasoline will cause the three−
way catalytic converter to lose its effectiveness and the emission control
system to function improperly. Also,
this can increase maintenance costs.
If your engine knocks...
If you detect heavy knocking even when
using the recommended fuel, or if you
hear steady knocking while holding a
steady speed on level roads, consult your
Toyota dealer.
However, occasionally, you may notice
light knocking for a short time while accelerating or driving up hills. This is normal
and there is no need for concern.

GASOLINE
ADDITIVES
CONTAINING
DETERGENT
Toyota recommends the use of gasoline
that contains detergent additives to
avoid build−up of engine deposits.
However, all gasoline sold in the U.S.
contains detergent additives to keep clean
and/or clean intake systems.
QUALITY GASOLINE
Automotive manufacturers in the U.S.,
Europe and Japan have developed a
specification for quality fuel named
World−Wide Fuel Charter (WWFC) that
is expected to be applied world wide.
The WWFC consists of four categories
that depend on required emisvels. In
the U.S., category 4 has been adopted.
The WWFC improves air quality by providing for better emissions in vehicle
fleets,
and
customer
satisfaction
through better vehicle performance.
CLEANER BURNING GASOLINE
GASOLINE CONTAINING MMT
Cleaner burning gasoline, including reformulated gasoline that contains oxygenates such as ethanol or MTBE is
available in many areas.
Some gasoline contain an octane enhancing additive called MMT (Methylcyclopentadienyl Manganese Tricarbonyl).
Toyota recommends the use of cleaner
burning gasoline and appropriately blended
reformulated gasoline. These types of gasoline provide excellent vehicle performance, reduce vehicle emissions, and improve air quality.
OXYGENATES IN GASOLINE
Toyota allows the use of oxygenate
blended gasoline where the oxygenate
content is up to 10% ethanol or 15%
MTBE. If you use gasohol in your
Toyota, be sure that it has an octane
rating no lower than 87.
Toyota does not recommend the use of
gasoline containing methanol.
Toyota does not recommend the use of
gasoline that contains MMT. If fuel containing MMT is used, your emission control system may be adversely affected.
The Malfunction Indicator Lamp on the instrument cluster may come on. If this happens, contact your Toyota dealer for service.
GASOLINE QUALITY
In a very few cases, you may experience
driveability problems caused by the particular gasoline that you are using. If you
continue to have unacceptable driveability,
try changing gasoline brands. If this does
not rectify your problem, then consult your
Toyota dealer.

Operation in foreign countries
NOTICE
z Do not use gasohol other than
stated above. It will cause fuel system damage or vehicle performance
problems.
z If driveability problems are encountered (poor hot starting, vaporizing,
engine knock, etc.), discontinue the
use.
Three−way catalytic converters
If you plan to drive your Toyota in
another country...
First, comply with the vehicle registration
laws.
Second, confirm the availability of the correct fuel (unleaded and minimum octane
number).
z Take care not to spill gasohol during refueling. Gasohol may cause
paint damage.
FUEL TANK CAPACITY
65 L (17.2 gal., 14.3 Imp. gal.)
The three−way catalytic converter is an
emission control device installed in the
exhaust system.
The purpose is to reduce pollutants in the
exhaust gas.
CAUTION
D Keep people and combustible mate-
rials away from the exhaust pipe
while the engine is running. The
exhaust gas is very hot.
D Do not drive, idle or park your ve-
hicle over anything that may burn
easily such as grass, leaves, paper
or rags.

Engine exhaust cautions
NOTICE
A large amount of unburned gases
flowing into the three−way catalytic
converter may cause it to overheat
and create a fire hazard. To prevent
this and other damage, observe the
following precautions:
z Use only unleaded gasoline.
z Do not drive with an extremely low
fuel level; running out of fuel could
cause the engine to misfire, creating an excessive load on the three−
way catalytic converter.
z Do not turn the “POWER” switch
off while the vehicle is moving.
z Keep your engine in good running
order. Malfunctions in the engine
electrical system, electronic ignition
system/distributor ignition system
or fuel system could cause an extremely high three−way catalytic
converter temperature.
z If the engine becomes difficult to
start or stalls frequently, take your
vehicle in for a check−up as soon
as possible. Remember, your Toyota
dealer knows your vehicle and its
three−way catalytic converter system best.
z To ensure that the three−way catalytic converter and the entire emission control system operate properly, your vehicle must receive the
periodic inspections required by the
Toyota Maintenance Schedule. For
scheduled maintenance information,
refer to the “Scheduled Maintenance
Guide” or “Owner’s Manual Supplement”.
z Do not apply a coating agent such
as an anti−rust under−coating to the
exhaust pipe.
CAUTION
D Avoid inhaling the engine exhaust.
It contains carbon monoxide, which
is a colorless and odorless gas. It
can cause unconsciousness or even
death.
D Make sure the exhaust system has
no holes or loose connections. The
system should be checked from
time to time. If you hit something,
or notice a change in the sound of
the exhaust, have the system
checked immediately.
D Do not run the hybrid system in a
garage or enclosed area except for
the time needed to drive the vehicle
in or out. The exhaust gases cannot
escape, making this a particularly
dangerous situation.
D Do not remain for a long time in a
parked vehicle with the hybrid system operating. If it is unavoidable,
however, do so only in an unconfined area and adjust the heating or
cooling system to force outside air
into the vehicle.

’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
Facts about engine oil
consumption
D Keep the trunk lid closed while
driving. An open or unsealed trunk
lid may cause exhaust gases to be
drawn into the vehicle.
D To allow proper operation of your
vehicle’s ventilation system, keep
the inlet grilles in front of the windshield clear of snow, leaves, or other obstructions.
D If you smell exhaust fumes in the
vehicle, open the windows and
close the trunk lid to ensure plenty
of fresh air enters the vehicle. If
you can smell exhaust fumes even
though there are no other vehicles
in the surrounding area, have your
vehicle checked by your Toyota
dealer. Continued inhalation of exhaust fumes can lead to death by
gas poisoning.
FUNCTIONS OF ENGINE OIL
Engine oil has the primary functions of
lubricating and cooling the inside of the
engine, and plays a major role in maintaining the engine in proper working order.
ENGINE OIL CONSUMPTION
It is normal that an engine should consume some engine oil during normal
engine operation. The causes of oil
consumption in a normal engine are as
follows.
D Oil is used to lubricate pistons, piston
rings and cylinders. A thin film of oil
is left on the cylinder wall when a piston moves downwards in the cylinder.
High negative pressure generated when
the vehicle is decelerating sucks some
of this oil into the combustion chamber.
This oil as well as some part of the oil
film left on the cylinder wall is burned
by the high temperature combustion
gases during the combustion process.
D Oil is also used to lubricate the stems
of the intake valves. Some of this oil
is sucked into the combustion chamber
together with the intake air and is
burned along with the fuel. High temperature exhaust gases also burn the
oil used to lubricate the exhaust valve
stems.
The amount of engine oil consumed depends on the viscosity of the oil, the
quality of the oil and the conditions the
vehicle is driven under.
More oil is consumed by high−speed driving and frequent acceleration and deceleration.
A new engine consumes more oil, since
its pistons, piston rings and cylinder walls
have not become conditioned.
Oil consumption: Max. 1.0 L per 1000
km (1.1 qt./600 miles, 0.9 lmp. qt./600
miles)
279
2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
Iridium−tipped spark plugs
When judging the amount of oil consumption, note that the oil may become
diluted and make it difficult to judge
the true level accurately.
As an example, if a vehicle is used for
repeated short trips, and consumes a normal amount of oil, the dipstick may not
show any drop in the oil level at all, even
after 1000 km (600 miles) or more. This
is because the oil is gradually becoming
diluted with fuel or moisture, making it
appear that the oil level has not changed.
The diluting ingredients evaporate out
when the vehicle is then driven at high
speeds, as on an express way, making it
appear that oil is excessively consumed
after driving at high speeds.
IMPORTANCE OF ENGINE OIL LEVEL
CHECK
One of the most important points in proper vehicle maintenance is to keep the engine oil at the optimum level so that oil
function will not be impaired. Therefore, it
is essential that the oil level be checked
regularly. Toyota recommends that the oil
level be checked every time you refuel
the vehicle.
NOTICE
Failure to check the oil level regularly
could lead to serious engine trouble
due to insufficient oil.
For detailed information on oil level check,
see “Checking the engine oil level” on
page 355 in Section 7−2.
Your engine is fitted with iridium−tipped
spark plugs.
NOTICE
Use only iridium−tipped spark plugs.
Do not adjust gaps for engine performance or smooth driveability.

Brake system
REGENERATIVE BRAKE
When the brake is applied, the motor generator converts kinetic energy into electric
energy.
When applying brakes, you may hear a
sound coming from the motor generator.
However, this does not indicate any
trouble.
The regenerative brake works in the following operations.
1. When the accelerator pedal is released,
the reduced speed equal to engine
braking in a gasoline−fueled vehicle is
obtained in accordance with the running
mode position of the selector lever.
2. When the brake pedal is depressed
with the selector lever in “D” or “B”,
the regenerative brake works.
HYDRAULIC BRAKE
This brake system has 3 independent hydraulic circuits. If any circuit should fail,
the other will still work. However, the pedal will be harder to press, and your stopping distance will increase. Also, the
brake system warning light may come on.
CAUTION
Do not drive your vehicle if any hydraulic circuit has failed. Have your
brakes fixed immediately.
BRAKE ACTUATOR
The brake actuator uses brake fluid pressurized by the pump to power−assist the
brakes. If the brake actuator fails during
driving, the brake system warning light
comes on and the buzzer sounds continuously. In this case, the brakes may not
work properly. If they do not work well,
depress the brake pedal firmly. If the
brake system warning light comes on, immediately stop your vehicle and contact
your Toyota dealer.
In the following conditions, you may hear
a sound in the engine compartment. This
is not a malfunction.
D The driver’s door is opened with the
hybrid system turned off.
D The brake pedal is depressed with the
hybrid system turned off.
D After the hybrid system is turned on.
D The brake pedal is depressed repeatedly with the hybrid system turned on.
D After the hybrid system is turned off.
The brake pedal may be hard to depress
or the brake pedal stroke may be short
before turning the hybrid system on. This
is not a malfunction.
The red and yellow brake system warning
lights may stay on for about 60 seconds
after the hybrid system is turned on. It is
normal if the light turns off after a while.
Depressing the brake pedal repeatedly
may turn on the red warning light and
buzzer. It is normal if the light turns off
after a few seconds.

’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
Electric power steering system
CAUTION
D Do not pump the brake pedal if the
hybrid system is not operating.
Each push on the pedal uses up
your reserved brake fluid pressure.
D Even if the power assist is com-
pletely lost, the brakes will still
work. But you will have to push the
pedal hard, much harder than normal. And your braking distance will
increase.
DRUM−IN−DISC TYPE PARKING BRAKE
SYSTEM
Your vehicle has a drum−in−disc type
parking brake system. This type of brake
system needs bedding−down of the brake
shoes periodically or whenever the parking
brake shoes and/or drums are replaced.
Have your Toyota dealer perform the bedding−down.
Brake pad wear limit
indicators
Driving conditions where the steering
wheel must be turned frequently may
cause an overload to the electric power
steering system. The system will reduce
assistance for sometime to prevent the
power steering from overheating. In this
case, you may feel some resistance when
turning the steering wheel though it is not
a malfunction.
CAUTION
If the “P/S” warning light comes on,
take your vehicle to the Toyota dealer
as soon as possible. In this case, you
may feel the heavy steering wheel
maneuvering. Drive your vehicle while
gripping the steering wheel firmly.
The brake pad wear limit indicators on
your disc brakes give a warning noise
when the brake pads are worn to where
replacement is required.
If you hear a squealing or scraping noise
while driving, have the brake pads
checked and replaced by your Toyota
dealer as soon as possible. Expensive rotor damage can result if the pads are not
replaced when necessary.

Theft prevention labels
Your new vehicle carries theft prevention labels which are approximately 47
mm (1.85 in.) by 12 mm (0.47 in.).
The purpose of these labels is to reduce
the incidence of vehicle thefts by facilitating the tracing and recovery of parts from
stolen vehicles. The label is designed so
that once it is applied to a surface, any
attempt to remove it will result in destroying the integrity of the label. Transferring
these labels intact from one part to another, will be impossible.
Suspension and chassis
CAUTION
Do not modify the suspension/chassis
with lift kits, spacers, springs, etc. It
can cause dangerous vehicle handling
characteristics, resulting in loss of
control.
NOTICE
You should not attempt to remove the
theft prevention labels as it may violate certain state or federal laws.

—Uniform Tire Quality
Grading
This information has been prepared
in accordance with regulations issued
by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation. It provides
the purchasers and/or prospective
purchasers of Toyota vehicles with information on uniform tire quality grading.
Your Toyota dealer will help answer
any questions you may have as you
read this information.
DOT quality grades—All passenger
vehicle tires must conform to Federal Safety Requirements in addition to these grades. Quality
grades can be found where applicable on the tire sidewall between
tread shoulder and maximum section width. For example: Treadwear
200 Traction AA Temperature A
Treadwear—The treadwear grade is
a comparative rating based on the
wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire graded 150 would wear
one and a half (1−1/2) times as well
on the government course as a tire
graded 100. The relative performance
of tires depends upon the actual
conditions of their use, however, and
may depart significantly from the
norm due to variations in driving habits, service practices and differences
in road characteristics and climate.
Traction AA, A, B, C—The traction
grades, from highest to lowest, are
AA, A, B, and C, and they represent
the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement as measured under controlled
conditions on specified government
test surfaces of asphalt and concrete.
A tire marked C may have poor traction performance.
Warning: The traction grade assigned
to this tire is based on braking
(straight ahead) traction tests and
does not include cornering (turning)
traction.
290
2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
Temperature A, B, C—The temperature grades are A (the highest), B,
and C, representing the tire’s resistance to the generation of heat and
its ability to dissipate heat when
tested under controlled conditions on
a specified indoor laboratory test
wheel. Sustained high temperature
can cause the material of the tire to
degenerate and reduce tire life, and
excessive temperature can lead to
sudden tire failure. The grade C corresponds to a level of performance
which all passenger car tires must
meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle
Safety Standard No.109. Grades B
and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel
than the minimum required by law.
Warning: The temperature grades for
this tire are established for a tire that
is properly inflated and not overloaded. Excessive speed, underinflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause
heat buildup and possible tire failure.

Cargo and luggage—
—Stowage precautions
Vehicle load limits
Vehicle load limits include total load
capacity, seating capacity, towing capacity and cargo capacity. Follow the
load limits shown below. Total load capacity and seating capacity are also
described on the tire and loading information label. For location of the tire
and loading information label, see
“Checking tire inflation pressure” on
page 359.
Total load capacity:
410 kg (900 lb.)
Total load capacity means combined weight of occupants, cargo
and luggage. Tongue load is included when trailer towing.
Seating capacity:
Total 5 (Front 2, Rear 3)
Seating capacity means the maximum number of occupants whose
estimated average weight is 68 kg
(150 lb.) per person. Depending on
the weight of each person, the seating capacity given may exceed the
total load capacity.
NOTICE
Even if the number of occupants are
within the seating capacity, do not exceed the total load capacity.
Towing capacity:
Toyota does not recommend towing
a trailer with your vehicle. It is not designed for trailer towing.
Cargo capacity
Cargo capacity may increase or decrease depending on the size (weight)
and the number of occupants. For details, see “Capacity and distribution”
that follows.
When stowing cargo and luggage in
the vehicle, observe the following:
D Put cargo and luggage in the trunk
when at all possible. Be sure all
items are secured in place.
D Be careful to keep the vehicle balanced. Locating the weight as far
forward as possible helps maintain
balance.
D For better fuel economy, do not
carry unneeded weight.
CAUTION
Do not apply the load more than
each load limit. That may cause
not only damage to the tires, but
also deterioration to the steering
ability and braking ability, which
may cause an accident.

—Capacity and distribution
CAUTION
D To prevent cargo and luggage
from sliding forward during
braking, do not stack anything
in the enlarged trunk. Keep cargo and luggage low, as close
to the floor as possible.
D Never allow anyone to ride in
the enlarged trunk. It is not designed for passengers. They
should ride in their seats with
their seat belts properly fastened. Otherwise, they are
much more likely to suffer serious bodily injury, in the event
of sudden braking or a collision.
D Do not place anything on the
package tray behind the rear
seatback. Such items may be
thrown about and possibly injure people in the vehicle during sudden braking or an accident.
D Do not drive with objects left
on top of the instrument panel.
They may interfere with the
driver’s field of view. Or they
may move during sharp vehicle
acceleration or turning, and impair the driver’s control of the
vehicle. In an accident they
may injure the vehicle occupants.
Cargo capacity depends on the total weight of the occupants.
(Cargo capacity) = (Total load capacity) – (Total weight of occupants)
Steps for Determining Correct
Load Limit—
(1) Locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and
cargo should never exceed XXX
kg or XXX lbs.” on your vehicle’s
placard.
(2) Determine the combined weight
of the driver and passengers that
will be riding in your vehicle.
(3) Subtract the combined weight of
the driver and passengers from
XXX kg or XXX lbs.
296
2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
(4) The resulting figure equals the
available amount of cargo and
luggage load capacity. For example, if the “XXX” amount equals
1400 lbs. and there will be five
150 lb passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available
cargo and luggage load capacity
is
650
lbs.
(1400–750
(5x150)=650 lbs.)
(5) Determine the combined weight
of luggage and cargo being
loaded on the vehicle. That
weight may not safely exceed the
available cargo and luggage load
capacity calculated in Step 4.
(6) If your vehicle will be towing a
trailer, load from your trailer will
be transferred to your vehicle.
Consult this manual to determine
how this reduces the available
cargo and luggage load capacity
of your vehicle.
For details about trailer towing, see
page 310.
Cargo
capacity
Total load
capacity
Example on Your Vehicle
In case that 2 people with the combined weight of 166 kg (366 lb.) are
riding in your vehicle with the total
load capacity of 410 kg (900 lb.), the
available amount of cargo and luggage load capacity will be as follows:
410 kg – 166 kg = 244 kg.
(900 lb. – 366 lb. = 534 lb.)
From this condition, if 3 more passengers with the combined weight of 176
kg (388 lb.) get on, the available cargo and luggage load will be reduced
as follows:
244 kg – 176 kg = 68 kg.
(534 lb. – 388 lb. = 146 lb.)
As shown in the above example, if the
number of occupants increases, the
cargo and luggage load equaling the
combined weight of occupants who
got on later must be reduced. In other
words, if the increase in the number
of occupants causes the excess of
the total load capacity (combined
weight of occupants plus cargo and
luggage load), you have to reduce the
cargo and luggage on your vehicle.
For details about total load capacity,
see “Vehicle load limits” on page 295.

Types of tires
CAUTION
Even if the total load of occupant’s weight and the cargo load
is less than the total load capacity, do not apply the load unevenly. That may cause not only damage to the tire but also deterioration to the steering ability due to
unbalance of the vehicle, causing
an accident.
Determine what kind of tires your
vehicle is originally equipped with.
1. Summer tires
Summer tires are high−speed capability tires best suited to highway driving
under dry conditions.
Since summer tires do not have the
same traction performance as snow
tires, summer tires are inadequate for
driving on snow−covered or icy roads.
For driving on snow−covered or icy
roads, we recommend using snow
tires. If installing snow tires, be sure
to replace all four tires.
2. All season tires
All season tires are designed to provide better traction in snow and to be
adequate for driving in most winter
conditions, as well as for use all year
round.
All season tires, however, do not have
adequate
traction
performance
compared with snow tires in heavy or
loose snow. Also, all season tires fall
short in acceleration and handling
performance compared with summer
tires in highway driving.
The details about how to distinguish
summer tires from all season tires are
described on page 285.
CAUTION
D Do not mix summer and all season tires on your vehicle as
this can cause dangerous handling characteristics, resulting
in loss of control.
D Do not use tires other than the
manufacturer’s
designated
tires, and never mix tires or
wheels of the sizes different
from the originally equipped
tires and wheels.

Winter driving tips
Make sure your coolant is properly protected against freezing.
Check the condition of the 12 volt battery and cables.
Use a washer fluid containing an antifreeze solution.
Only use “Toyota Super Long Life Coolant”
or similar high quality ethylene glycol
based non−silicate, non−amine, non−nitrite,
and non−borate coolant with long−life
hybrid organic acid technology. (Coolant
with
long−life
hybrid
organic
acid
technology is a combination of low
phosphates and organic acids.)
Cold temperatures lower the performance
of the 12 volt battery, so it must be in top
shape to provide enough power for winter
starting. Section 7−3 tells you how to
visually inspect the 12 volt battery. Your
Toyota dealer and most service stations
will be pleased to check the level of
charge.
This product is available at your Toyota
dealer and most auto parts stores. Follow
the manufacturer’s directions for how
much to mix with water.
See “Checking the coolant level” on page
357 in Section 7−2 for details of coolant
type selection.
Make sure the engine oil viscosity is
suitable for the cold weather.
For the U.S.A.—“Toyota Super Long Life
Coolant” is a mixture of 50% coolant and
50% deionized water. This coolant provides protection down to about −35_C
(−31_F).
For Canada—“Toyota Super Long Life
Coolant” is a mixture of 55% coolant and
45% deionized water. This coolant provides protection down to about −42_C
(−44_F).
NOTICE
Do not use plain water alone.
See page 356 in Section 7−2 for recommended viscosity. Leaving a heavy summer oil in your vehicle during winter
months may cause harder starting. If you
are not sure about which oil to use, call
your Toyota dealer—they will be pleased
to help.
NOTICE
Do not use engine antifreeze or any
other substitute because it may damage your vehicle’s paint.
Do not use your parking brake when
there is a possibility it could freeze.
Keep the door locks from freezing.
When parking, put the transmission into
“P” and block the rear wheels. Do not use
the parking brake, or snow or water accumulated in and around the parking brake
mechanism may freeze, making it hard to
release.
Squirt lock de−icer or glycerine into the
locks to keep them from freezing.
Keep ice and snow from accumulating
under the fenders.
Ice and snow built up under your fenders
can make steering difficult. During bad

Dinghy towing
Trailer towing
Your vehicle is not designed to be
dinghy towed (with four wheels on the
ground) behind a motorhome.
Toyota does not recommend towing a
trailer with your Toyota. Toyota also
does not recommend the installation of
a tow hitch or the use of a tow hitch
carrier for a wheelchair, scooter, bicycle, etc. Your Toyota is not designed
for trailer towing or for the use of tow
hitch mounted carriers.
Depending on where you are driving,
we recommend you carry some emergency equipment.
Some of the things you might put in the
vehicle are tire chains, window scraper,
bag of sand or salt, flares, small shovel,
jumper cables, etc.
NOTICE
Do not tow your vehicle with four
wheels on the ground. This may
cause serious damage to your vehicle.

How to save fuel and make
your vehicle last longer
Improving fuel economy is easy—just take
it easy. It will help make your vehicle last
longer, too. Here are some specific tips
on how to save money on both fuel and
repairs:
D Keep your tires inflated at the cor-

tire wear and wastes fuel. See page
359 in Section 7−2 for instructions.
D Avoid heavy traffic or traffic jams
D Do not carry unneeded weight in
D Do not rest your foot on the brake
your vehicle. Excess weight puts a
heavier load on the hybrid system,
causing greater fuel consumption.
D Accelerate
slowly and smoothly.
Avoid jackrabbit starts. Get into high
gear as quickly as possible.
D Avoid continuous speeding up and
slowing down.

unnecessary stopping and
braking. Maintain a steady pace. Try
to time the traffic signals so you only
need to stop as little as possible or
take advantage of through streets to
avoid traffic lights. Keep a proper distance from other vehicles to avoid sudden braking. This will also reduce wear
on your brakes.
whenever possible.
pedal. This causes premature wear,
overheating and poor fuel economy.
D Maintain a moderate speed on high-
ways. The faster you drive, the greater
the fuel consumption. By reducing your
speed, you will cut down on fuel consumption.
D Keep the front wheels in proper
alignment. Avoid hitting the curb and
slow down on rough roads. Improper
alignment not only causes faster tire
wear but also puts an extra load on
the hybrid system, which, in turn,
wastes fuel.
D Keep your vehicle tuned−up and in
top shape. A dirty air cleaner, improper valve clearance, dirty plugs, dirty oil
and grease, brakes not adjusted, etc.
all lower engine performance and contribute to poor fuel economy. For longer
life of all parts and lower operating
costs, keep all maintenance work on
schedule, and if you often drive under
severe conditions, see that your vehicle
receives more frequent maintenance.
(For scheduled maintenance information, please refer to the “Scheduled
Maintenance Guide” or “Owner’s Manual Supplement”.)
CAUTION
Never turn off the hybrid system to
coast down hills. Your power steering
and brake booster do not function
when the hybrid system is off. In
addition, the emission control system
operates properly only when the hybrid system is operating.
D Keep the bottom of your vehicle free
from mud, etc. This not only lessens
weight but also helps prevent corrosion.

Before making these checks, make sure
you have sufficient fuel and that you have
followed the correct starting procedure given in “How to start the hybrid system” on
page 301 in Section 3. If your vehicle is
equipped with the engine immobilizer system, also check whether the other keys
will start the hybrid system. If they work,
your key may be broken. Have the key
checked at your Toyota dealer. If none of
your keys work, there may be a malfunction in the immobilizer system. Call your
Toyota dealer. (See “Keys” on page 22 in
Section 1−2.)
(b) Emergency start
If the instrument cluster displays with
normal brightness levels with the
“POWER” switch set at ON...

(c) Jump starting
If the 12 volt battery is discharged, the
hybrid system can be started by jump
starting. Depending on the vehicle condition, however, the hybrid system may
not start.
To avoid serious injury and damage to
your vehicle which might result from an
explosion of the battery, acid burns,
electrical burns, or damaged electronic
components, follow instructions carefully.
If you are unsure about how to follow this
procedure, we strongly recommend that
you seek the help of a competent mechanic or towing service.
D If you should accidentally get acid
on yourself or in your eyes, remove
any contaminated clothing and flush
the affected area with water immediately. Then get immediate medical attention. If possible, continue
to apply water with a sponge or
cloth while en route to the medical
office.
D The gas normally produced by a
battery will explode if a flame or
spark is brought near. Use only
standardized jumper cables and do
not smoke or light a match while
jump starting.
CAUTION
D Batteries
contain
sulfuric
acid
which is poisonous and corrosive.
Wear protective safety glasses when
jump starting, and avoid spilling
acid on your skin, clothing, or vehicle.
NOTICE
12 VOLT BATTERY LOCATION
The 12 volt battery is located in the right−

CAUTION
When making the connections, to
avoid serious injury, do not lean over
the battery or accidentally let the
jumper cables or clamps touch anything except the correct battery terminals or the ground.
5. Start the hybrid system. Make sure the
“READY” light is on.
If the first start attempt is not successful...
If the ”READY” light will not come on
and the hybrid system will not start
after you recharge the battery, perform
the following procedure. Turn the hybrid
system off. Open and close the driver’s
door. Then push the ”POWER” switch
briefly and firmly.
Check that the clamp on the jumper
cables are tight. Recharge the discharged
battery with the jumper cables connected
for several minutes and restart the hybrid
system in the normal way.

STOP THE VEHICLE SHIFT TO P” appears on the multi−information display,
the hybrid battery is also discharged.
In this condition, the hybrid system
may not start. Contact your Toyota
dealer.
If the another attempt is not successful,
the battery may be depleted. Have it checked at your Toyota dealer.
6. Carefully disconnect the cables in the
exact reverse order: the negative cable
and then the positive cable.
7. Carefully dispose of the battery cover
cloths—they may now contain sulfuric
acid.

ing, the power assist for the brakes
and steering will not work so steering and braking will be much harder than usual.
driving, do not open the driver’s
door until the vehicle comes to a
complete stop. Opening the driver’s
door locks the steering wheel, resulting in loss of steering control.
CAUTION
To help avoid personal injury, keep
the hood closed until there is no
steam. Escaping steam or coolant is
a sign of very high pressure.
3. Look for obvious coolant leaks from the
radiator, hoses, and under the vehicle.
However, note that water draining from
the air conditioning is normal if it has
been used.
CAUTION
When the hybrid system is on, keep
hands and clothing away from the
moving fan.
4. If the coolant is leaking, stop the hybrid system immediately. Call a Toyota
dealer for assistance.
5. If there are no obvious leaks, check
the coolant reservoir. If it is dry, add
coolant to the reservoir while the hybrid system is on. Fill it about half full.
For the coolant type, see “Coolant type
selection” on page 357 in Section 7−2.

If you have a flat tire—
CAUTION
Do not attempt to remove the radiator
cap when the hybrid system and radiator are hot. Serious injury could
result from scalding hot fluid and
steam blown out under pressure.
6. After the coolant temperature has
cooled to normal, again check the coolant level in the reservoir. If necessary,
bring it up to half full again. Serious
coolant loss indicates a leak in the
system. You should have it checked as
soon as possible at your Toyota dealer.
1. Reduce your speed gradually,
keeping a straight line. Move cautiously off the road to a safe place
well away from the traffic. Avoid
stopping on the center divider of
a highway. Park on a level spot
with firm ground.
2. Stop the hybrid system and turn
on your emergency flashers.
3. Firmly set the parking brake and
put the transmission in “P”.
4. Have everyone get out of the vehicle on the side away from traffic.

If towing is necessary, we recommend
you to have it done by your Toyota
dealer or a commercial tow truck service. In consultation with them, have
your vehicle towed using either (a) or
(b).
TOWING PRECAUTIONS:
Proper equipment will help ensure that
your vehicle is not damaged while being
towed. Commercial operators are generally
aware of the state/provincial and local
laws pertaining to towing.
(a) Towing with wheel lift type truck
Your vehicle can be damaged if it is
towed incorrectly. Although most operators
know the correct procedure, it is possible
to make a mistake. To avoid damage to
your vehicle, make sure the following precautions are observed. If necessary, show
this page to the tow truck driver.
CAUTION
If your vehicle needs to be towed, do
it with the front wheels raised. If the
wheels with the motor generator are
on the ground when towing, the motor may continue to generate electricity. This may cause the electricity leakage. Depending on the severity of
the damage, electricity leakage may
cause fire.
Use a safety chain system for all towing,
and abide by the state/provincial and local
laws. The wheels and axle on the ground
must be in good condition. If they are
damaged, use a towing dolly.
(c) Towing with sling
type truck
NOTICE
When lifting wheels, take care to ensure adequate ground clearance for
towing at the opposite end of the
raised vehicle. Otherwise, the bumper
and/or underbody of the towed vehicle
will be damaged during towing.
From front—Release the parking brake.
From rear—
Use a towing dolly under the front wheels.
(c) Towing with sling type truck
NOTICE
Do not tow with sling type truck, either from the front or rear. This may
cause body damage.
NOTICE
Never tow a vehicle from the rear
with the front wheels on the ground,
as this may cause serious damage to
the transmission.

turned off and the parking brake is
on. Insert the flathead screwdriver or
equivalent to the slot of the cover
and pry it up.
2. Press the “POWER” switch and start
the hybrid system. For your safety,
keep the brake pedal depressed.
3. With pushing down the shift lock
override button, shift out of the “P”
position while depressing the brake
pedal.
As the hybrid system starts only with the
transmission in the “P” position, put the
selector lever in “P” whenever starting the
system.
Be sure to have the system checked by
your Toyota dealer as soon as possible.

If you lose your keys
You can purchase a new electronic key
at your Toyota dealer if you can give
them the key number and master key.
If you lose any of your keys, contact your
Toyota dealer to have new keys made.
Lost keys increase the danger of vehicle
theft. Bring all of the remaining vehicle
keys when you visit your Toyota dealer.
See the suggestion given in “Keys” on
page 22 in Section 1−2.
You can use the wireless remote control
function and smart entry and start function
by new key. Contact your Toyota dealer
for detailed information.
If your keys are locked in the vehicle and
you cannot get a duplicate, many Toyota
dealers can still open the door for you,
using their special tools. If you must
break a window to get in, we suggest
breaking the smallest side window because it is the least expensive to replace.
Be extremely cautious to avoid cuts from
the glass.

Protecting your Toyota from
corrosion
Toyota, through the diligent research, design and use of the most advanced
technology available, helps prevent corrosion and provides you with the finest quality vehicle construction. Now, it is up to
you. Proper care of your Toyota can help
ensure long−term corrosion prevention.
The most common causes of corrosion
to your vehicle are:
D The accumulation of road salt, dirt and
moisture in hard−to−reach areas under
the vehicle.
D Chipping
of paint, or undercoating
caused by minor accidents or by
stones and gravel.
Care is especially important if you live
in particular areas or operate your vehicle under certain environmental conditions:
D Road salt or dust control chemicals will
accelerate corrosion, as will the presence of salt in the air near the sea−
coast or in areas of industrial pollution.
D High humidity accelerates corrosion es-
pecially when temperatures range just
above the freezing point.
D Wetness or dampness to certain parts
of your vehicle for an extended period
of time, may cause corrosion even
though other parts of the vehicle may
be dry.
D High ambient temperatures can cause
corrosion to those components of the
vehicle which do not dry quickly due to
lack of proper ventilation.
The above signifies the necessity to keep
your vehicle, particularly the underside, as
clean as possible and to repair any damage to paint or protective coatings as
soon as possible.
D High pressure water or steam is effec-
tive for cleaning the vehicle’s underside
and wheel housings. Pay particular
attention to these areas as it is difficult
to see all the mud and dirt. It will do
more harm than good to simply wet the
mud and debris without removing. The
lower edge of doors, rocker panels and
frame members have drain holes which
should not be allowed to clog with dirt
as trapped water in these areas can
cause corrosion.
D Wash the underside of the vehicle thoroughly when winter is over.
your
See “Washing and waxing your Toyota” on
page 334 for more tips.
Wash your vehicle frequently. It is, of
course, necessary to keep your vehicle
clean by regular washing, but to prevent
corrosion, the following points should be
observed:
Check the condition of your vehicle’s
paint and trim. If you find any chips or
scratches in the paint, touch them up immediately to prevent corrosion from starting. If the chips or scratches have gone
through the bare metal, have a qualified
body shop make the repair.
To help prevent corrosion on
Toyota, follow these guidelines:
D If you drive on salted roads in the
winter or if you live near the ocean,
you should hose off the undercarriage
at least once a month to minimize corrosion.
333
2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
Washing and waxing your
Toyota
Check the interior of your vehicle. Water and dirt can accumulate under the
floor mats and could cause corrosion. Occasionally check under the mats to make
sure the area is dry. Be particularly careful when transporting chemicals, cleansers, fertilizers, salt, etc.; these should be
transported in proper containers. If a spill
or leak should occur, immediately clean
and dry the area.
Use mud shields on your wheels. If you
drive on salted or gravel roads, mud
shields help protect your vehicle. Full−size
shields, which come as near to the ground
as possible, are the best. We recommend
that the fittings and the area where the
shields are installed be treated to resist
corrosion. Your Toyota dealer will be
happy to assist in supplying and installing
the shields if they are recommended for
your area.
Keep your vehicle in a well ventilated
garage or a roofed place. Do not park
your vehicle in a damp, poorly ventilated garage. If you wash your vehicle in
the garage, or if you drive it covered with
water or snow, your garage may be so
damp as to cause corrosion. Even if your
garage is heated, a wet vehicle can corrode if the ventilation is poor.
Your Toyota is a hybrid vehicle. Pay
particular attention when washing your
Toyota.

Before washing your Toyota, be sure
to observe the following in order to
avoid the risk of damage to your vehicle.
Do not splash water on the electric

CAUTION
D When cleaning under floor or chassis, be careful not to injure your
hands.
D Exhaust gases cause the exhaust
pipe to become quite hot. When
washing the vehicle, be careful not
to touch the pipe until it has cooled
sufficiently, as touching a hot exhaust pipe can cause burns.
1. Rinse off loose dirt with a hose. Remove any mud or road salt from the
underside of the vehicle or the wheel
wells.

2. Wash with a mild car−wash soap,
mixed according to the manufacturer’s
instructions. Use a soft cotton mitt and
keep it wet by dipping it frequently into
the wash water. Do not rub hard—let
the soap and water remove the dirt.
Fuel filler door: Do not apply water (high−
pressure car wash, for example) at or
near the fuel tank inlet with the fuel filler
door opened. If the water enters the air
vent, you may experience trouble with refueling or rough engine idling.
Plastic wheel ornaments: The plastic
wheel ornaments are damaged easily by
organic substances. If any organic substances splash an ornament, be sure to
wash them off with water and check if the
ornament is damaged.
Aluminum wheels: Use only a mild soap
or neutral detergent.
Plastic bumpers: Wash carefully. Do not
scrub with abrasive cleaners. The bumper
faces are soft.
Exterior lights: Wash carefully. Do not use
organic substances or scrub them with a
hard brush. This may damage the surfaces of the lights.
Road tar: Remove with turpentine or
cleaners that are marked safe for painted
surfaces.
3. Rinse
thoroughly—dried
soap
can
cause streaking. In hot weather you
may need to rinse each section right
after you wash it.
4. To prevent water spots, dry the vehicle
using a clean soft cotton towel. Do not
rub or press hard—you might scratch
the paint.
NOTICE
z Do not use organic substances
(gasoline, kerosene, benzine or
strong solvents), which may be toxic or cause damage.
z Do not scrub any part of the vehicle with a hard brush, which may
cause damage.
Automatic car wash
Your vehicle may be washed in an automatic car wash, but remember that the
paint can be scratched by some types of
brushes, unfiltered washing water, or the
washing process itself. Scratching reduces
paint durability and gloss, especially on
darker colors. The manager of the car
wash should be able to advise you whether the process is safe for the paint on
your vehicle.
Waxing your Toyota
Polishing and waxing is recommended
to maintain the original beauty of your
Toyota’s finish.
Apply wax once a month or if the vehicle
surface does not repel water well.
1. Always wash and dry the vehicle before you begin waxing, even if you are
using a combined cleaner and wax.
2. Use a good quality polish and wax. If
the finish has become extremely weathered, use a car−cleaning polish, followed by a separate wax. Carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions and
precautions. Be sure to polish and wax
the chrome trim as well as the paint.

Cleaning the interior
Windshield washer nozzles: Make sure
that the nozzles do not become blocked
when waxing. If a nozzle becomes
blocked, contact your Toyota dealer to
have the vehicle serviced.
NOTICE
If a nozzle becomes blocked, do not
try to clear it with a pin or other
object. The nozzle will be damaged.
Exterior lights: Do not apply wax on the
surfaces of the lights. Wax may cause
damage to the lenses. If you accidentally
put wax on the light surfaces, wipe or
wash it off.
3. Wax the vehicle again when water
does not bead but remains on the surface in large patches.
CAUTION
D Be careful not to splash water or
spill liquid on the floor. This may
prevent the side airbags from activating correctly, resulting in serious
injury.
D Do not wash the vehicle interior or
trunk with water. The hybrid battery
is located behind the rear seat and
allowing water to come into contact
with the battery can cause electric
shock that may result in death or
serious injury.
Vinyl interior
The vinyl upholstery may be easily
cleaned with a mild soap or detergent
and water.
First vacuum over the upholstery to remove loose dirt. Then, using a sponge or
soft cloth, apply the soap solution to the
vinyl. After allowing it to soak in for a few
minutes to loosen the dirt, remove the dirt
and wipe off the soap with a clean damp
cloth. If all the dirt do not come off, repeat the procedure. Commercial foaming−
type vinyl cleaners are also available
which work well. Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions.
NOTICE
Do not use solvent, thinner, gasoline
or window cleaner on the interior.

obtained by keeping the carpet as dry as
possible. Read the shampoo instructions
and follow them closely.
Seat belts
The seat belts may be cleaned with
mild soap and water or with lukewarm
water.
The windows may be cleaned with any
household window cleaner.
NOTICE
When cleaning the inside of the rear
window, be careful not to scratch or
damage the heater wires or connectors.
Air conditioning control panel, audio
panel, instrument panel, console panel
and switches.
Use a soft damp cloth for cleaning.
Soak a clean soft cloth in water or lukewarm water then lightly wipe off dirt.
NOTICE
z Do not use organic substances (solvents, kerosene, alcohol, gasoline,
etc.) or alkaline or acidic solutions.
These chemicals can cause discoloring, staining or peeling of the
surface.
z If you use cleaners or polishing
agents, make sure their ingredients
do not include the substances mentioned above.
z If you use a liquid car freshener, do
not spill the liquid onto the vehicle’s interior surfaces. It may contain the ingredients mentioned above. Immediately clean any spill
using the method mentioned above.
Use a cloth or sponge. As you are cleaning, check the belts for excessive wear,
fraying, or cuts.
NOTICE
z Do not use dye or bleach on the
belts—it may weaken them.

Leather interior
The leather upholstery may be cleaned
with neutral detergent for wool.
Remove dirt using a soft cloth dampened
with 5% solution of neutral detergent for
wool. Then thoroughly wipe off all traces
of detergent with a clean damp cloth.
After cleaning or whenever any part of the
leather gets wet, dry with a soft clean
cloth. Allow the leather to dry in a ventilated shaded area.
NOTICE
z If a stain should fail to come out
with a neutral detergent, apply a
cleaner that does not contain an
organic solvent.
z Never use organic substances such
as benzine, alcohol or gasoline, or
alkaline or acid solutions for cleaning the leather as these could
cause discoloring.
z Use of a nylon brush or synthetic
fiber cloth, etc. may scratch the
fine grained surface of the leather.
z Mildew may develop on soiled leather upholstery. Be especially careful
to avoid oil spots. Try to keep your
upholstery always clean.
z Long exposure to direct sunlight
may cause the leather surface to
harden and shrink. Keep your vehicle in a shaded area, especially in
the summer.
z The interior of your vehicle is apt
to heat up on hot summer days, so
avoid placing on the upholstery
items made of vinyl or plastic or
containing wax as these tend to
stick to leather when warm.
z Improper cleaning of the leather upholstery could result in discoloration or staining.
If you have any questions about the
cleaning of your Toyota, your local
Toyota dealer will be pleased to answer
them.

Maintenance requirements
Your Toyota vehicle has been designed for
fewer maintenance requirements with longer service intervals to save both your time
and money. However, each regular maintenance, as well as day−to−day care, is
more important than ever before to ensure
smooth, trouble−free, safe, and economical
drivings.
It is the owner’s responsibility to make
sure the specified maintenance, including
general maintenance service, is performed.
Note that both the new vehicle and emission control system warranties specify that
proper maintenance and care must be performed. See “Owner’s Warranty Information Booklet” or “Owner’s Manual Supplement” for complete warranty information.
General maintenance
General maintenance items are those day−
to−day care practices that are important to
your vehicle for proper operation. It is the
owner’s responsibility to insure that the
general maintenance items are performed
regularly.
These checks or inspections can be done
either by yourself or a qualified technician,
or if you prefer, your Toyota dealer will be
pleased to do them at a nominal cost.
Scheduled maintenance
Where to go for service?
The scheduled maintenance items listed in
the “Scheduled Maintenance Guide” or
“Owner’s Manual Supplement” are those
required to be serviced at regular intervals.
Toyota technicians are well−trained specialists and are kept up to date with the
latest service information through technical
bulletins, service tips, and in−dealership
training programs. They learn to work on
Toyotas before they work on your vehicle,
rather than while they are working on it.
For details of your maintenance schedule,
read the “Scheduled Maintenance Guide”
or “Owner’s Manual Supplement”.
It is recommended that any replacement
parts used for maintenance or for the
repair of the emission control system
be Toyota supplied.
The owner may elect to use non−Toyota
supplied parts for replacement purposes without invalidating the emission
control system warranty. However, use
of replacement parts which are not of
equivalent quality may impair the effectiveness of the emission control systems.
You can be confident that your Toyota
dealer’s service department performs the
best job to meet the maintenance requirements on your vehicle—reliably and economically.
Your copy of the repair order is proof that
all required maintenance has been performed for warranty coverage. If any problems should arise with your vehicle while
under warranty, your Toyota dealer will
promptly take care of it. Again, be sure
to keep a copy of the repair order for any
service performed on your Toyota.
You may also elect to have maintenance, replacement, or repair of the
emission control devices and system
performed by any automotive repair establishment or individual without invalidating this warranty. See “Owner’s Warranty Information Booklet” or “Owner’s
Manual Supplement” for complete warranty information.

General maintenance
What about do−it−yourself maintenance?
Many of the maintenance items are easy
to do yourself if you have a little mechanical ability and a few basic automotive
tools. Simple instructions for how to perform them are presented on page 346 in
Section 7.
If you are a skilled do−it−yourself mechanic, the Toyota service manuals are recommended. Please be aware that do−it−yourself maintenance can affect your warranty
coverage. See “Owner’s Warranty Information Booklet” or “Owner’s Manual Supplement” for the details.
Listed below are the general maintenance
items that should be performed as frequently as specified. In addition to checking the items listed, if you notice any
unusual noise, smell or vibration, you
should investigate the cause or take your

Emissions Inspection and
Maintenance (I/M) programs
Some states have vehicle emission inspection programs which include OBD
(On−Board Diagnostics) checks.
The OBD system monitors the operation
of the emission control system. When the
OBD system determines that a problem
exists somewhere in the emission control
system, the malfunction indicator lamp
comes on. In this case, your vehicle may
not pass the I/M test and need to be
repaired. Contact your Toyota dealer to
service the vehicle.
Even
does
pass
have
if the malfunction indicator lamp
not come on, your vehicle may not
the I/M test as readiness codes
not been set in the OBD system.
Also, if the malfunction indicator lamp had
come on recently due to temporary malfunction such as a loose fuel tank cap,
your vehicle may not pass the I/M test.
The malfunction indicator lamp will go off
after taking several driving trips, but the
error code in the OBD system will not be
cleared unless about 40 trips or more are
taken.
If your vehicle does not pass the I/M test
even the malfunction indicator lamp does
not come on, contact your Toyota dealer
to prepare the vehicle for re−testing.
Readiness codes are automatically set
during ordinary driving. However, when the
12 volt battery is disconnected or run
down, the codes are erased. Also, depending on your driving habits, the codes
may not be completely set.

CAUTION
D Never touch, remove or disassemble
high voltage parts and cables.
Touching, removing or disassembling those parts and cables can
cause severe burns or electric
shock that may result in death or
serious injury. For the locations of
high voltage parts and cables, see
“—High voltage components” on
page 7 in Section 1−1.
D When the hybrid system is on, keep
hands, clothing, and tools away
from the moving fan. (Removing
rings, watches, and ties is advisable.)
D Right
after driving, the engine
compartment—the engine, radiator,
exhaust manifold and spark plug
boots, etc.—will be hot. So be careful not to touch them. Oil, fluids
and spark plugs may also be hot.
D If the radiator is hot, do not remove
the radiator cap or loosen the drain
plugs to prevent burning yourself.
D Do not leave anything that may
burn easily, such as paper or rags,
in the engine compartment.
D When the hybrid system is operat-
ing with the “READY” light on, the
engine may suddenly start in some
cases. When you inspect the engine
compartment, be sure to turn off
the hybrid system.
D Do not get under your vehicle with
just the body jack supporting it. Always use automotive jack stands or
other solid supports.
D Be sure that the POWER” switch is
off if you work near the electric
cooling fans or radiator grille. With
the “POWER” switch on, the electric cooling fans will automatically
start to run if the engine coolant
temperature is high and/or the air
conditioning is on.
D Use eye protection whenever you
work on or under your vehicle
where you may be exposed to flying
or falling material, fluid spray, etc.
D Brake fluid can harm your hands or
eyes and damage painted surfaces.
If fluid gets on your hands or in
your eyes, flush the affected area
with clean water immediately. If you
still feel uncomfortable with your
hands or eyes, go to the doctor.
D Used engine oil contains potentially
harmful contaminants which may
cause skin disorders such as inflammation or skin cancer, so care
should be taken to avoid prolonged
and repeated contact with it. To remove used engine oil from your
skin, wash thoroughly with soap
and water.
D Do not leave used oil within the
reach of children.
D Dispose of used oil and filter only
in a safe and acceptable manner.
Do not dispose of used oil and filter in household trash, in sewers or
onto the ground. Call your dealer or
a service station for information
concerning recycling or disposal.

pressure
Checking brake fluid
If the fluid level goes down soon after
your vehicle is serviced, it may indicate
a serious mechanical problem. Have
your vehicle checked by a Toyota dealer.
CAUTION
To check the fluid level, simply look at
the see−through reservoir. The level
should be between the “MAX” and
“MIN” lines on the reservoir.
It is normal for the brake fluid level to go
down slightly as the brake pads wear or
when the fluid level in the accumulator is
high.
Brake fluid can harm your hands or
eyes. If fluid gets on your hands or
in your eyes, flush the affected area
with clean water immediately. If you
still feel uncomfortable with your
hands or eyes, go to the doctor.
NOTICE
If brake fluid is spilled on the vehicle,
be sure to wipe it off to prevent damage to parts or paint.
If the level is low, take your vehicle to
a Toyota dealer as soon as possible. Do
not drive your vehicle if the red brake
system warning light is on. Call a
Toyota dealer for assistance.

2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
Keep your tire inflation pressures
at the proper level.
The recommended cold tire inflation
pressures, tire sizes and the combined weight of occupants and cargo
(vehicle capacity weight) are described on page 385 and 380. They
are also on the tire and loading information label.
You should check the tire inflation
pressure every two weeks, or at least
once a month. And do not forget the
spare!
The following instructions for
checking tire inflation pressure
should be observed:
D The
pressure
should
be
checked only when the tires are
cold. If your vehicle has been
parked for at least 3 hours and has
not been driven for more than 1.5
km or 1 mile since, you will get
an accurate cold tire inflation pressure reading.
D Always use a tire pressure
gauge. The appearance of a tire
can be misleading. Besides, tire
inflation pressures that are even
just a few pounds off can degrade
ride and handling.
D Take special care when adding
air to the compact spare tire.
The smaller tire size can gain
pressure very quickly. Add compressed air in small quantities and
check the pressure often until it
reaches the specified pressure.
Type B
360
2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
D Do not bleed or reduce tire
inflation pressure after driving.
It is normal for the tire inflation
pressure to be higher after driving.
D Never exceed the vehicle capacity weight. Passenger and luggage weight should be located so
that the vehicle is balanced.
Tire pressure gauge
5. After completing the tire inflation
pressure measurement and adjustment, apply soapy water to the
valve and check for leakage.
6. Install the tire valve cap.
If a gauge and air pump are not available, have your vehicle checked by
your Toyota dealer.
CAUTION
INSPECTION AND ADJUSTMENT
PROCEDURE
1. Remove the tire valve cap.
2. Press the tip of the tire pressure
gauge to the tire valve.
3. Read the pressure using the graduations of the gauge.
4. In case the tire inflation pressure
is not within the prescribed range,
insert the compressed air from the
valve. In case of applying too
much air, press the center of the
valve and release the air to adjust.
Be sure to reinstall the tire valve
caps. Without the valve caps, dirt
or moisture could get into the
valve core and cause air leakage.
If the caps have been lost, have
new ones put on as soon as possible.
Incorrect tire inflation pressure may
waste fuel, reduce the comfort of driving, reduce tire life and make your vehicle less safe to drive.
If a tire frequently needs refilling,
have it checked by your Toyota dealer.

CAUTION
Keep your tires properly inflated.
Otherwise, the following conditions may occur and cause an accident resulting in death or serious injuries.
Low tire pressure (underinflation)—
D Excessive wear
D Uneven wear
D Poor handling
D Possibility of blowouts from a
overheated tire
D Poor sealing of the tire bead

High tire pressure (overinflation)—
D Poor handling
D Excessive wear
D Uneven wear
D A greater possibility of tire

Tread wear indicator
CHECKING YOUR TIRES
Check the tire’s tread for tread
wear indicators. If the indicators
show, replace the tires. The location of tread wear indicators is
shown by the “TWI” or “Δ ” marks,
etc., molded on the sidewall of
each tire.
362
2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
The tires on your Toyota have built−in
tread wear indicators to help you
know when the tires need replacement. When the tread depth wears to
1.6 mm (0.06 in.) or less, the indicators will appear. If you can see the
indicators in two or more adjacent
grooves, the tire should be replaced.
The lower the tread, the higher the
risk of skidding.
The effectiveness of snow tires is
lost if the tread wears down below
4 mm (0.16 in.).
If you have tire damage such as
cuts, splits, cracks deep enough to
expose the fabric, or bulges indicating internal damage, the tire
should be replaced.
If a tire often goes flat or cannot be
properly repaired due to the size or
location of a cut or other damage, it
should be replaced. If you are not
sure, consult with your Toyota dealer.
If air loss occurs while driving, do not
continue driving. Driving even a short
distance can damage a tire beyond
repair.
Any tires which are over 6 years
old must be checked by a qualified
technician even if damage is not
obvious.
Tires deteriorate with age even if they
have never or seldom been used.
This applies also to the spare tire and
tires stored for future use.
REPLACING YOUR TIRES
When replacing a tire, use a tire of
the same size and construction,
and the same or greater maximum
load as the originally installed
tires.
Using any other size or type of tire
may seriously affect handling, ride,
speedometer/odometer calibration,
ground clearance, and clearance between the body and tires or snow
chains.
Check that the maximum load of the
replaced tire is greater than 1/2 of the
Gross Axle Weight Ratings (GAWR)
of either the front axle or the rear
axle, whichever is greater. As for the
maximum load of the tire, see the load
limit at maximum cold tire inflation
pressure mentioned on the sidewall
of the tire, and as for the Gross Axle
Weight Ratings (GAWR), see the Certification Label.
For details about the side wall of the
tire and the Certification Label, see
pages 285 and 283.

Rotating tires
CAUTION
Observe the following instructions. Otherwise, an accident
may occur resulting in death or
serious injuries.
D Do not mix radial, bias belted,
or bias−ply tires on your vehicle, as this may cause dangerous handling characteristics resulting in loss of control.
D Do not use tires other than the
manufacturer’s recommended
size, as this may cause dangerous handling characteristics
resulting in loss of control.
Toyota recommends all four tires,
or at least both of the front or rear
tires be replaced at a time as a set.
See “If you have a flat tire” on page
318 in Section 4 for tire change procedure.
When a tire is replaced, the wheel
should always be balanced.
An unbalanced wheel may affect vehicle handling and tire life. Wheels
can get out of balance with regular
use and should therefore be balanced
occasionally.
When replacing a tubeless tire, the
air valve should also be replaced
with a new one.
Initial adjustment of the tire pressure warning system is necessary
after you have replaced your tires.
See “Tire pressure warning system” on page 168 in Section 1−7.
To equalize the wear and help extend tire life, Toyota recommends
that you rotate your tires according to the maintenance schedule.
(For scheduled maintenance information, please refer to the “Scheduled Maintenance Guide” or “Owner’s
Manual
Supplement”.)
However, the most appropriate timing for tire rotation may vary according to your driving habits and
road surface conditions.

See “If you have a flat tire” on page
318 in Section 4 for tire change procedure.
When rotating tires, check for uneven
wear and damage. Abnormal wear is
usually caused by incorrect tire pressure, improper wheel alignment, out−
of−balance wheels, or severe braking.
Initial adjustment of the tire pressure warning system is necessary
after you have rotated your tires.

USE
SNOW
TIRES
OR
Snow tires or chains are recommended
when driving on snow or ice.
On wet or dry roads, conventional tires
provide better traction than snow tires.
SNOW TIRE SELECTION
If you need snow tires, select tires of
the same size, construction and load
capacity as the originally installed tires.
Do not use tires other than those mentioned above. Do not install studded tires
without first checking local regulations for
possible restrictions.
CAUTION
Do not use snow tires other than the
manufacturer’s recommended size, as
this may cause dangerous handling
characteristics resulting in loss of
control. Otherwise, an accident may
occur resulting in death or serious
injuries.
SNOW TIRE INSTALLATION
Snow tires should be installed on all
wheels.
Installing snow tires on the front wheels
only can lead to an excessive difference
in road grip capability between the front
and rear tires which could cause loss of
vehicle control.
When storing removed tires you should
store them in a cool dry place. Mark the
direction of rotation and be sure to install
them in the same direction when replacing.
CAUTION
D Do not drive with the snow tires
incorrectly inflated.
D Never drive over 120 km/h (75 mph)
with any type of snow tires.

Replacing wheels
WHEN TO REPLACE YOUR WHEELS
If you have wheel damage such as
bending, cracks or heavy corrosion, the
wheel should be replaced.
If you fail to replace a damaged wheel,
the tire may slip off the wheel or cause
loss of handling control.
WHEEL SELECTION
When replacing wheels, care should be
taken to ensure that the wheels are replaced by ones with the same load capacity, diameter, rim width, and offset.
Correct replacement wheels are available
at your Toyota dealer.
A wheel of a different size or type may
adversely affect handling, wheel and bearing life, brake cooling, speedometer/odometer calibration, stopping ability, headlight
aim, bumper height, vehicle ground clearance, and tire or snow chain clearance to
the body and chassis.
Replacement with used wheels is not recommended as they may have been subjected to rough treatment or high mileage
and could fail without warning. Also, bent
wheels which have been straightened may
have structural damage and therefore
should not be used. Never use an inner
tube in a leaking wheel which is designed
for a tubeless tire.
CAUTION
Do not use wheels other than the
manufacturer’s recommended size, as
this may cause dangerous handling
characteristics resulting in loss of
control. Otherwise, an accident may
occur resulting in death or serious
injuries.
Initial adjustment of the tire pressure

NOTICE
z Be sure the hybrid system and all
accessories are off before performing maintenance.
z When checking the battery, remove
the ground cable from the negative
terminal (“−” mark) first and reinstall it last.
Hold−down
clamp
Ground cable
Check the battery for corroded or loose
terminal connections, cracks, or loose
hold−down clamp.
a. If the battery is corroded, wash it off
with a solution of warm water and baking soda. Coat the outside of the terminals with grease to prevent further corrosion.
b. If the terminal connections are loose,
tighten their clamp nuts—but do not
overtighten.
c. Tighten the hold−down clamp only
enough to keep the battery firmly in
place. Overtightening may damage the
battery case.
z Be careful not to cause a short circuit with tools.
z Take care no solution gets into the
battery when washing it.
During recharging, the battery is producing hydrogen gas.
Therefore, before recharging:
1. If recharging with the battery installed
on the vehicle, be sure to disconnect
the ground cable.
2. Be sure the power switch on the recharger is off when connecting the
charger cables to the battery and when
disconnecting them.
CAUTION
D Always charge the battery in an un-
confined area. Do not charge the
battery in a garage or closed room
where there is not sufficient ventilation.
D Only do a slow charge (5 A or
less). Charging at a quicker rate is
dangerous. The battery may explode, causing personal injuries.
NOTICE
Never recharge the battery while the
hybrid system is operating. Also, be
sure all accessories are turned off.

Checking and replacing fuses
Good
Blown
Type A
Good
Type C
Blown
If the headlights or other electrical
components do not work, check the
fuses. If any of the fuses are blown,
they must be replaced.
See “Fuse locations” on page 348 in Section 7−1 for locations of the fuses.
Good
Blown
Turn the hybrid system and inoperative
component off. Pull the suspected fuse
straight out and check it.
Determine which fuse may be causing the
problem. The lid of the fuse box shows
the name of the circuit for each fuse. See
page 386 in Section 8 for the functions
controlled by each circuit.
Type B
Type B fuses—When any of the fuses are
blown, contact your Toyota dealer.
371
2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
Checking the fusible link
Type A fuses can be pulled out by the
pull−out tool. The location of the pull−out
tool is shown in the illustration.
If you are not sure whether the fuse has
blown, try replacing the suspected fuse
with one that you know is good.
If the fuse has blown, push a new fuse
into the clip.
Only install a fuse with the amperage rating designated on the fuse box lid.
If you do not have a spare fuse, in an
emergency you can pull out the “RADIO
NO.1” or “PWR OUTLET” fuse, which may
be dispensable for normal driving, and use
it if its amperage rating is the same.
If you cannot use one of the same amperage, use one that is lower, but as close
to the rating as possible. If the amperage
is lower than that specified, the fuse
might blow out again but this does not
indicate anything wrong. Be sure to get
the correct fuse as soon as possible and
return the substitute to its original clip.
It is a good idea to purchase a set of
spare fuses and keep them in your vehicle for emergencies.
If the new fuse immediately blows out,
there is a problem with the electrical system. Have your Toyota dealer correct it as
soon as possible.
CAUTION
Never use a fuse with a higher amperage rating, or any other object, in
place of a fuse. This may cause extensive damage and possibly a fire.
If the headlights or other electrical
components do not work and the fuses
are O.K., check the fusible link fitted
on the “+” terminal of the 12 volt battery. If the link is melted, it must be
replaced.
If there is an overload in the circuits, the
fusible links are designed to melt before
the entire wiring harness is damaged.
The battery is located in the right−hand
side of the trunk. See “—12 volt battery
location” on page 369 in this Section.

Adding washer fluid
Replacing light bulbs—
If the washer does not work or the
message “LOW WASHER FLUID” appears on the multi−information display,
the washer tank may be empty. Add
washer fluid.
The following illustrations show how to
gain access to the bulbs. When replacing
a bulb, make sure the hybrid system and
light switch are off. Use bulbs with the
wattage ratings given in the table.
You may use plain water as washer fluid.
However, in cold areas where temperatures range below the freezing point, use
washer fluid containing antifreeze. This
product is available at your Toyota dealer
and most auto parts stores. Follow the
manufacturer’s directions for how much to
mix with water.
The stop/tail lights and high mounted stoplight consist of a number of LEDs. If any
of the LEDs burn out, take your vehicle
to your Toyota dealer to have the light
replaced.
NOTICE
Do not use engine antifreeze or any
other substitute because it may damage your vehicle’s paint.
If two or more LEDs in a stop light burn
out, your vehicle may not conform to local
laws (SAE).
CAUTION
NOTICE
Only use a bulb of the listed type.
The inside of the lens of exterior lights
such as headlights may temporarily fog up
when the lens becomes wet in the rain or
in a car wash. This is not a problem
because the fogging is caused by the
temperature difference between the outside
and inside of the lens, just like the
windshield fogs up in the rain. However, if
there is a large drop of water on the
inside of the lens, or if there is water
pooled inside the light, contact your
Toyota dealer.
D To prevent burning yourself, do not
replace the light bulbs while they
are hot.
D Halogen bulbs have pressurized gas
inside and require special handling.
They can burst or shatter if
scratched or dropped. Hold a bulb
only by its plastic or metal case.
Do not touch the glass part of a
bulb with bare hands.

Important information about your Toyota
Hybrid system on your vehicle
Occupant restraint systems
Your vehicle is a hybrid vehicle. It has characteristics different from other conventional vehicles. You must understand the characteristics of your vehicle very well and handle it carefully. Read this manual and follow the instructions. Section 1−1 explains the characteristics of the hybrid system.
Toyota encourages you and your family to take the time to
read Section 1−3 of this Owner’s Manual carefully. In
terms of helping you understand how you can receive the
maximum benefit of the occupant restraint systems this
vehicle provides, Section 1−3 of this Owner’s Manual is
the most important Section for you and your family to
read.
Section 1−3 describes the function and operation concerning seats, seat belts, SRS airbags and child restraint systems of this vehicle and some potential hazards you
should be aware of. These systems work together along
with the overall structure of this vehicle in order to provide
occupant restraint in the event of a crash. The effect of
each system is enhanced when it is used properly and
together with other systems. No single occupant restraint
system can, by itself, provide you or your family with the
equal level of restraint which these systems can provide
when used together. That is why it is important for you and
your family to understand the purpose and proper use of
each of these systems and how they relate to each other.
iii
2007 CAMRY HV from Oct. ’06 Prod. (OM33749U)
’07Camry hybrid_U (L/O 0610)
The purpose of all occupant restraint systems is to help
reduce the possibility of death or serious injury in the
event of a collision. None of these systems, either individually or together, can ensure that there is no injury in the
event of collision. However, the more you know about
these systems and how to use them properly, the greater
your chances become of surviving an accident without
death or serious injury.
In order to be effective, the SRS airbags must deploy with
tremendous speed. The rapid deployment of the SRS airbags makes the SRS airbags themselves potential sources
of death or serious injury if an occupant is too close to an
airbag, or if an object or some part of his or her body has
been placed between the occupant and the airbag at the
time of deployment. This is just one example of how the
instructions in Section 1−3 of this Owner’s Manual will help
ensure proper use of the occupant restraint systems, and
increase the safety they can provide to you and your family in the event of an accident.
Seat belts provide the primary restraint to all occupants of
the vehicle, and every occupant of the vehicle should wear
seat belts properly at all times. Children should always be
secured in child restraint systems that are appropriate for
their age and size. SRS (Supplemental Restraint System)
airbags are, as their names imply, designed to work with,
and be supplemental to, seat belts and are not substitutes
for them. SRS airbags can be very effective in reducing
the risk of head, chest and knee injuries by preventing
contact of the head, chest and knee with interior portions
of the vehicle.
Toyota recommends you to read the provisions in Section
1−3 carefully and refer to them as needed during your time
of ownership of this vehicle.

Event data recorder
D SRS airbag deployment data
D SRS airbag system diagnostic data
Your vehicle has computers that monitor and control certain aspects of your vehicle. These computers assist in
driving and maintaining optimal vehicle performance. Besides storing data useful for troubleshooting, there is a
system to record data in a crash or a near car crash
event. This is called an Event Data Recorder (EDR).
If your vehicle is equipped with a vehicle stability control
(VSC) system, its Electronic Control Unit (ECU) may contain another EDR. There are a variety of driving situations
which include activating the VSC under which the VSC
EDR will record certain information. The VSC EDR may
record some or all of the following information:
The SRS airbag sensor assembly contains the EDR. In a
crash or a near car crash event, this device may record
some or all of the following information:
D Behavior of the vehicle
D Steering wheel angle
D Vehicle speed
D Engine speed
D To what extent the accelerator pedal was depressed
D Whether the brake pedal was applied or not
D To what extent the brake pedal was applied
D Vehicle speed
D To what extent the ECU controlled the condition of
the 4 wheels
D To what extent the accelerator pedal was depressed
D Position of the transmission selector lever
D Vehicle stability control system diagnostic data
D Whether the driver and front passenger wore the seat
belts or not
The information above is intended to be used for the
purpose of improving vehicle safety performance. Unlike
general data recorders, the EDR does not record sound
data such as conversation between passengers.
D Driver’s seat position
D Front passenger’s occupant classification
