It looks like I am in the same boat with the compressor problem. My 2002 Sequoia has 52K miles on it and the dealer just gave me the good news that the compressor is seized. I'd appreciate it if you could direct me to the TSB site so I can keep an eye out for other potential problems down the road.
Do you have any suggestions on best course of action to try and get Toyota to help with the cost of the compressor replacement?

My 2001 Sequoia just shown this signal and immediately the brake pedal felt very soft and the distance to stop took much longer.
The dealer told me that they need to replace the Master Pressure Switch(Sensor) and parts and labors will be more than $1100.
is there anyone out there could help me out with this problem?
Thank you very much!

I don't know what happend? 2001 Model and just about 3 weeks ago I noticed that it was shifting hard at times just starting out. I mean around the 25 to 35 speed. Then, just out of the blew on father's day my wife is driving and it quits and will not go forward or backward. Nothing!! When you got it running it makes this sound like something is all chopped up... Now, it only has 67,000 miles on it and well that is over warrenty... Anybody got anything any help?

You probably have taken care of this since it has been 3 months since your post. But in case you haven't....I had the same problem with my 01 SR5. I bought the elec motor at the dealer and installed it myself. This process is easier if you have a Hayes manual.
You have to pop the inside plastic panel off of the back door and remove the trim pieces. Unplug the electrical connections that are on the middle of the door panel. Then you remove the left access plate (facing the rear from the inside). Next you have to use a star pattern screwdriver to remove the 3 screws. This is tricky because you have to reach in to the panel and there is not much room to maneuver. The only way I could figure out how to do this is to use a small socket and star screwdriver bit. Put the bit in the socket wrench and feel for the screws. It helps to look at the new motor to get an idea of where they are positioned. Also, be sure to save the screws because the new motor does not come with them. The receiver holes in the new motor are self threading so you don't have to worry about nuts (which is nice considering the difficult angle at which you are working).
Replace the wires and panels and you should be in business.

We just got a new 05 4x4 limited about a month ago. It has about 1200 miles on it and my wife informed me last night that on the way home form work, it did the same thisng you described in your posting. Have you had any resolution or discovered what the problem was?
Please let me know
#1166 of 2169 Brake Light On While Driving
Jun 29, 2005 (1:23 pm)
I have a 2003 Sequoia with 26K miles. Every once in a while (ever 2 weeks or so) the brake light will turn on when I am driving. I don't notice a decrease in braking ability, and after turning ignition off and on again makes the light go away. Has anyone seen something like this? I was going to take it to Toyota, but it's too intermittent...

It is probably needing a little bit of brake fluid in the resovoir. As the brake pads wear down, it takes more fluid to apply them. As this happens, the amount needed in the resovoir reduces. Next time you bring it in to get the oil changed, have them check it out. In all liklihood, this is all that is needed.
Hope this helps.

In my situation, adding brake fluid did not resolve the issue. I regard this as another one of Toyota's nuisance problems, e.g., VSC Trac lights.
#1169 of 2169 Sequoia Spark Plug Replacement Intervals
Jun 29, 2005 (7:42 pm)
I have 60k on my 2003 SR5 2WD. Manual calls for replacing the spark plugs.
My question is; has anyone changed over to the Platinum Plugs?
Any engine danger/damage by doing this? P.I.A. changing them every 30k miles.
Curious if anyone else feels this way, (expensive) and changed to the Platinum.
#1170 of 2169 Alternative to Toyota brake Job
Jun 30, 2005 (6:08 pm)
Has anyone found a good alternative to Toyota's service for brake work on a Sequoia? Toyota prices are extremely high and they offer no deals, at least in my area, please don't respond with, if you want the best service you have to pay for it, or I wouldn't trust anyone but Toyota to service my vehicle. I'm looking for a good alternative to paying for Toyota's overpriced service, especially brake work, because we all know that the brakes on the Sequoia are a problem. So if you have found a good alternative, preferably a national chain, please respond.
