#8670 of 8984 Sequoia Door Handles Break
Sep 06, 2005 (10:53 am)
I have a 2002 Sequoia and at 37,000 miles the drivers side door handle cracked and then broke off. Now at 40,000 miles the passenger side door handle is cracked and will break off the next time some tries to use the door. This is frustrating for me as a Real Estate Agent. I have people in and out of the car often. I hate to have to tell them wait a second don't open that door! They then ask about the problem and I explain I have not had the time to go in and pay $110.00 for the repair. My first vehicle was a Toyota and have owned them ever since. This one issue has troubled me for many reasons including safety.
Has anyone else had this problem?
#8671 of 8984 Sequoia rear window non functional

My rear window does not roll down either with the key, remote or drivers switch. I can't find which circuit or relay controls this function. Anyone know?

I don't know but I had same problem wiht my rear window. Turned out it was the rear window regulator gone bad. Toyota dealer replaced it under warranty. Check the regulator first - located inside rear hatch. GOOD LUCK!

we have an 02 Sequoia. two of our inside handles have broken. both were replaced under warranty but I learned how to do it on my own and could do it if it happened again.

Mine did not work for a while much like yours, no matter what I did it would not move. I ended up giving the control button on the dash a few short rapps and it began working. Go figure!!

Hey sequoiasoon! Love your flag symbol! I'm new to this group but your post about getting the Sequoia Service Manual on CD on eBay really caught my eye. I have a 2000 Camry and got a Service Manual for it on eBay. It's great!
I have an 02 Sequoia SR5 and want a Service Manual for it on CD too. Please get in touch with me. Thank you.

As I type, my 2002 Sequoia, 45K miles, is having the driver's side interior door handle replaced. I asked the service advisor if he's seen many, ha said a few, and added, "it's just plastic, you know." I've been told it's about a $30 part and and hour (aka $80) to replace, we'll see. If anyone hear's of a warranty or good will adjustment, pass it along. Thanks.
#8678 of 8984 Sequoia issues

I have been on this board since Dec 2000, and own an '01 SR5 2WD Sequoia I purchased Dec 12, 2000. This truck now has 62K miles. In its 4+ years of ownership, I have had to replace 2 things - the front brakes at 25K miles (TSB recall), and the radio head unit within 100 miles of ownership (warranty replacement). Other than basic wear and tear - tires (2X already), brakes (2X already), alignment and balancing (2X already), that has been it.... And this is the first year of production truck. We may have been lucky, seeing and reading that some of you seem to be having some recurring problems with yours. That is disturbing, and I hope that your dealership(s) helps sort all these issues out. My post is simply to show that there are other owners with much less worry or issues than others, even some of us owning the first year of production truck.

I agree with oac I have been around since 2001 when I bought me 2001 limited 2wd. This has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. Other than my rear window not working for a while I have had no repairs other that regular maintaince (97,000 miles). Second set of tires, still have 15-20K left on them, three sets of brakes plus the TSB recall. Some problems were my own fault (leaving parking brake on whilw driving).
