oh boy yes i have and u must be pulling your hair out over this, I bought a 2002 sequioa and had everyone and there brother try to change the mode from 1 to anything, the problem with this was located on a lexus question site, and your answer my friend on how to change this to any mode is, turn it to on position for the key,(you dont need the parking brake), and hold the door lock button for "exactly" 5 seconds (use a watch), tada, it will quickly unlock and lock and your mode is changed to whichever you want. I dont have any idea why toyota says to hold the button for at least 5 seconds, it should say only 5 seconds and not 1 less or 1 more second...... Good Luck and rogaine should grow back the hair clumps that im sure you pulled out already.....

I would like to change alot of the items you listed in your above thread, but how do you enter this program to change these codes? the only thing in my users manual that came with my sequoia was how to change the automatic locks, and that was a chore to figure out that you needed to hold the lock down for exactly 5 seconds and not at least like the manual stated.... any information you have for where to find out how to change each of these options would be greatly greatly appreciated.
#8950 of 8984 Re: Sequoia exhaust manifolds warp
Aug 10, 2009 (2:30 pm)
This is a known problem and I have taken two different earlier model Sequoia's to the dealer where both were diagnosed in less than 10 minutes with having a warped exhaust manifold. This could be a potential life threatening problem as the exhaust gases could get into the passenger compartment and kill the passengers. If sufficient number of complaints are raised,with DOT a recall could happen.
#8951 of 8984 Toyota Sequoia & Tundra exhaust manifold warpping warrants a recall
Aug 10, 2009 (2:47 pm)
This is a known problem to all Toyota dealers. I have taken two different earlier model Toyota Sequois to the dealers where both trucks were diagnosed in less than 10 minutes with having a warped exhaust manifold.
At the onset of problem, there will be an increase in the level of engine noise (promindue to the leak in the exhaust manifold).
As the manifold warps further and the leak increases, the check engine light would come on as the level of Oxygen the Catalytic Converter Bank-1 will drop, and OBDII code of P0420 would reported.
All those who have had this problem should report this problem to the sites listed below, as well as to Toyota US, Toyota Canada, and Toyota Mexico
This could be a potential life threatening problem as the exhaust gases could get into the passenger compartment and kill the passengers. If sufficient number of complaints are raised and registered with the following organizations, a recall may happen:
Depart Of Transportation
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration(NHTSA)
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)
Please note that fixing this at the Toyota dealer will set you backup $3000+ for each side of the exhaust manifold when using Toyota parts, then the manifold will warp again in a year or two!!!! You can try buying after market parts where the manifolds sell for $200 and the oxygen sensors sell for about $100, plus labour (a hit in the pocket of about $1000).

I have a 2001 Sequoia 2wd with 39,500 miles of mostly local driving and a couple of trips from Los Angeles to San Francisco and L.A. to Las Vegas. The local mileage is 10 mpg and the best mileage on the highage being 17 mpg. I should count my blessings that so far I haven't had some of the problems that the other owners have had except the lousy gas mileage and the broken liftgate handle. Do I have to contact Toyota about the TSB bulletin on the brakes?

If you are a Toyota owner and interested in sharing your reaction to the recall with reporters, send an email stating the vehicle you own, your telephone number, and the best time you can be reached.

#8954 of 8984 2009 Sequoia light not shutting off
Feb 07, 2010 (1:09 pm)
Has anyone had problems with the interior lights not shutting off after 20 mins (as per the manual).
The dome lights and headlights all shut down after 20min but if the kids leave a reading light on the batt is dead in the am. Plus the courtesy lights (the little ones on the bottom of the doors) do not shut off either .
The dealer seems to think this is ok... I don;t think so... the manual states the to preserve the batt life all the light are supposed to shut down after 20 min.. Batt has been dead about 6 times in the last 3 months.
It has an auto starter installed and I have asked them to check to see if this is interfering...
