#10981 of 10987 2013 Navigation/Audio issue
Dec 20, 2012 (7:36 am)
Has anyone experienced their navigation/ audio system-shutting off (by itself) while in use and then rebooting? Just picked up my 2013 Highlander limited yesterday. Have driven about 400 miles since pick up and have had the navigation/audio system shut down and then reboot at least 5 times. It has done this both when there is a destination set and when there is no destination set. In all situations the system was connected to my iphone 4S via bluetooth and music was playing via bluetooth
any and all help will be appreciated!

I had the same issue on my 2008 HL Sport
After much investigation I found it to be the rubber gasket on the lip of the hood directly above the grill.
The way the HL is designed, when you go to open the hood to release the secondary hood lock you naturally stick your left hand under the hood to lift it to release the secondary latch with your right hand. By doing this over time the rubber gasket in this area comes loose because there is a plastic clip in the underside of the hood that comes undone. I pushed it back in and the noise went away. The analogy here is like blowing air between a blade of grass in your fingers, The resonance point is between 40-45 MPH. To help ensure a good seal, I added a piece of foam weather stripping (black) 7/16" x 3/4" on the top of the grill between the grill and the gasket on the underside of the hood.This makes a better seal in this area. Nice and quiet (and now so is my wife!!!) :rofl2:

Does anyone know if the 2013 Highlander is made in Japan or the US. I've seen different web sites list both.
Also, any one know why Toyota would put a 6 speed A/T in the 4 cyl and downgrade to the 5 speed for the 6 cyl. Doesn't make sense. Thanks....

Wikipedia says most are made in the US but "some" are made in Japan. Maybe supply just outreaches demand?

My daughter has a 2003 Toyota Highlander and the other day the blower started making a funny noise and would not produce any air. Later she started smelling something like a dead animal. Her husband took the filter and fan out and found a dead baby opossum in the fan compartment. My question is how did he get in there and is there a remedy for future animals getting in the area? I looked under the hood for a vent pipe but did not see one thinking I might be able to put a screen over it.

05 Highlander, 88k miles
I am the original owner of my HL and was wondering about the power steering fluid. I checked it recently and it looks dark brown. My manual doesn't say anything about this. It is supposed to look red.

I have 88k miles on my 05 HL. Isn't is just safer to just replace it at 90k vs risk more damage later on? How do you know when it is time to replace the timing belt. I live minutes from work and sometimes I drive long distances, but not often.
