Now the same lights are on, the 12v doesn't work and the remote door locks don't work. This happens several times while I'm driving vehicle. However if the car is at an incline there is fuel where the filter fan sucks the vapors which instead pulls in the liquid into he carbon filter, thus destroying the ability of this system to work correctly. It never happened on my 2005 and 2006 Sienna. The dealer believed the problem was the yaw rate sensor.
Anyways, I used a friends scanner also only reads engine codes and I got P0037. There is obviously a quality control issue with these that Toyota does not want to be on the hook for. The vehicle was not repaired. There will be a code in there for the misfiring. Toyota has many complaints about this and they need to recall this problem before someone gets rear ended on a highway.
But my rear tire bounced me off the median and into the vehicle. Afterwards, while driving between 30-40 mph, the contact depressed the brake pedal and heard a loud thumping noise. This is the first time this happened and I am a little worry about safety. Replacing the carbon filter and emptying the suction lines usually fixes this problem. I called Toyota, they gave me a case and told me to take it in to the dealer. At the same time, a warning bell sounds and the vsc and abs lights come on in yellow. They said the lights might come back on and they have on and off for the last year.
If this many are having this problem, then there's a problem. I was drive My Sienna and all above three lights came on at the same time and vehicle was running perfectly fine. The manufacturer was investigating the failures. These lights start coming on but runs fine code says 02 sensor or bad cat. I have been reading about similar cases for this model and do not know what to do. When we left the resort it was snowing very heavy. Ignition coiI is a high voltage output and contamination can leak out these voltage.
Not sure how this will affect my vehicle in the long run. Sam's club told me last year that I needed to replace the same battery. Good luck and thanks to all contributors. If the lights are off, I have learned to prepare for the sudden braking. The window would open when the vehicle was being driven, when it was stationary or even while it was unoccupied.
They assured me the system works fine and that it has something to do with the computer module. The only way to clear those false messages is by taking the wire out from the battery. I have found a lot of complaints on the internet by owners having the same problem. Lights then came on again and he replaced all 3 in front even tho he said they were testing as fine. While driving 65 mph there was a loud thump in the right front passenger side wheel area, automatically the right front brake was applied.
Oh ya when the lights come on the cars exhaust stinks more than normal and when I clear the codes they go away. The car occasionally thinks that we are skidding out of control and begins pulsating the brakes. . I began to research this problem on line and it seems there are many cases of this on 2001-2003 Toyota Sequoias. Com, there were a number of people with the same problem.
. Toyota, the manufacture, or the local dealer would not take any responsibility for the parts and that it wasn't faulty parts. Again I researched and found there to be a Toyota recall on 2003 Sequoias only for the same problem that has been affecting my Sequoia! If I understood him right. The contact was unaware of the repair needed to remedy the failure. This is the only vehicle we have to drive our severely disabled 10 year old daughter and cannot afford a new vehicle.
Not sure how to proceed without any codes to work with. I let off the brakes and tried to miss the vehicle in front of me by going to the left side of them over a small median as there was no traffic coming towards us in the intersection. The technicians replaced the translate computer, the ecu, the transmission temperature sensor, and the brake power booster. It was also the only vehicle that would start last year when the temperature was way below zero F. This problem began occurring in the winter of 2007 with the vsc, vsc trac, and abs warning lights all coming on. This started after the wife filled up the tank and parked on our declining block. It is back in the shop for the 4th time for the exact same reason.
The local dealer knocked off 25% of the price. She was able to get it back home safely thank goodness. The vehicle was taken to the authorized dealer for diagnostic testing. I took it back to a Toyota dealer and again they could not duplicate the lights turning on or find any computer codes concerning the problem. I let off the brakes and tried them again to no avail. The issue was later discovered to be a communication error between the skid control and the ecm.
