I have had exactly the same thing with my 1998 Sienna. I had the hub bearings replaced in Janurary and they now are telling me that my Axle bearings need to be replaced (only $350.00 though). Did you have this done? Did it fix the car? My car has 87,000 miles and had the transmission replaced at 45,000 (it was under warrenty and is a known problem that Toyota has acknowledged). I am just not sure how much longer I want to keep this car and if it is worth fixing.http://a332.g.akamai.net/f/332/936/12h/www.edmunds.com/media/townhall/webxicons/emo- torcons/emo_confused.gif
#3339 of 3687 Check Engine Light OBD Code - need help troubleshooting
Jul 23, 2005 (7:26 pm)
Have a 2000 Sienna LE with 62K, had 02 sensor on the firewall side replaced a few months ago after the check engine light came on. Has been mostly trouble free otherwise.
Check engine light came and these codes were read at the local Autozone store:
P1150 A/F Sensor Circuit Range/Performance (Bank 2 Sensor 2) (Toyota)
P1155 A/F Sensor Heater Circuit (Bank 2 Sensor 1) (Toyota)
P0125 Insufficient Coolant Temperature for Closed Loop Fuel Control
and am baffled as to what to conclude. Any assistance appreciated.

Have you fixed your problem yet! Any advice??
We have a 2003 Lincoln Town Car -- you have described our same anti theft alarm problem. We have had the prob for 4 years and have done what you have done.
Now, we lock the car manually, then insert key and turn to the right. That works for a while. Our manual said tht if the driver is seated in the car or something heavy was in the drivers seat the alarm would not go off - not true. We placed two heavy bags weighing about 100 pounds - the alarm went off. It happens a lot in front of our house at 1am or 3am. Yesterday, while having breakfast in a restaurant it happened continuously disturbing everyone! We were sort glad that we were with friends so they could see what we were experiencing.
One guy suggested we contact the purchase place and find out the model number of the factory installed anti theft system that came with the car -- where is it located in the car - and a schematic showing the anti theft system. I am going to
call the manufacturer tomorrow and anyone and everyone to try to find out how to permanently disarm this antitheft device.
Our first quest we were told it was a factory built installed system tied into the electronics of the car and we could not disarm it unless we locked the doors manually. That was 4 years ago.
Yesterday afternoon, the car was parked on a flat surface parking lot in front of the motel we and friends were staying at. The alarm went off again continuosly - we sat with the lincoln manual which describes how to lock and unlock but does not troubleshoot the antitheft device when it goes berserk! During the daytime it drove everyone crazy at the motel. Finally after locking the door's manually and turning the key to the right 4 times -- the alarm stopped. NOW, WE WERE WORRIED,
what if this thing goes off during the night when everyone WAS SLEEPING???
We prayed and we slept in our clothes, so that we could "run out" and handle this berserk alarm - thank goodness it didn't go off! That would have been a serious problem for us with the other guests at the hotel!
Does anyone know a fix for this? We were told because it's factory installed and integrated with the electronics of the car there is no switch to regulate or turn it off.

#3342 of 3687 Insufficient Coolant Temp. 2000 sienna
Aug 01, 2005 (7:49 am)
My Check Engine light came on with a DTC P0125, first occurence in five yrs and 64k miles. After resetting, light comes on again after a few miles. No other codes to narrow down my search. Everything else seems ok. This code indicates that Fuel Control is permanently in Open Mode. What could cause that to happen without triggering some other code?

I have a 03 Sienna LE with 63k and the transmission just went. The dealership just has already said we were out of warranty and there is nothing they could do. How did you get Toyota to pay for your transmission at 74k?
#3345 of 3687 Re: Sludge again [littlefawn]
Aug 03, 2005 (4:16 am)
IIRC the transmission warranty was for 98-01 MY vans. Better double chk.
Aug 03, 2005 (6:09 am)
What do Sludge and transmission problems have to do with each other? We have a 2000 XLE and we got letters from Toyota increasing our transmission and Engine warranties to 100k miles.I am not sure what the year limit was.

Aug 04, 2005 (4:29 am)
nothing. the sludge warranty is for 8yrs unlimited kms i think. The tranny warranty is probably the same time period but would have to double chk on it. It was primarily for the 98-01 MY vans. regular schudlued maintence is a must on these vehicles. Change the PCV valve.
