#1198 of 2179 Toyota dealer secret?
Jul 22, 2005 (2:14 pm)
I checked on my 2002 Sequoia and it has theft deter. system but no keyless remote. I checked on factory manual and located the wireless door lock control receiver is installed. I tried to program it but with no response from the car after step 7. (pull out the key after on,loco,on,lock). Any one know what toyota dealer secret? Since it has the hardware in the car, could it poosible the need to plug in one unhook wire? Someone who works at toyota dealer service deparrtment can tell me this. Please

We've had exactly the same scenario. I am a woman with a little hand and usually open the door with two fingers. The handle cracked right in half. Have you had any luck getting the dealer to pay for this repair? It might as well have been built by Mattel.

Update on vibration. Toyota regional rep (central atlantic) came to dealership to see the truck and determined that rear diff was heating up and causing vibration - rear diff and rear bearings replaced and vibration and humming sound have been corrected. I know others have experienced this (and regional rep indicated at least 3 to 4 others in region) - thought I would pass the "fix" along, as dealer (and I would admit me as well) was convinced that the problem was either front end or transmission.

#1202 of 2179 Stereo/DVD problem
Jul 27, 2005 (11:21 am)
I just bought a 2005 Sequoia LTD with the JBL E7006 Sound system w/NAV and rear seat DVD system. When the ignition key is in the ACC position, the system operates great. However, when I start the vehicle I get very little sound (when I turn the volume to MAX I get a small amount of audio). Also, the DVD system does not work when the vehicle is running (again it works fine when ignition is in ACC mode). The head unit does not seem to sense that a DVD is in the player because when I hit the "disc" button on the head unit, it says "no CD". When I do this when the ignition is on "ACC", it works fine. The dealer just ordered a new amp, but they can't assure me that is the problem. Any ideas???

The dealer reset the computer that controls the transmission and they believed it helped. I drive the car and it has not helped. I think this is an issue with the new 5 speed transmission or the logic that controls it. I also think they know there is a problem but Toyota has not come up with a fix. This also happens on my daughter's 2005 SR5.

I just had to have my terminals cleaned as well. It was preventing my Sequoia from starting one morning. They gave no explanation either.

Got the vehicle in to the Toyota dealership last week. They found a short in the driver's door. Everything works normal now. Thanks for your responses. BTW do you know of a store with an inexpensive set of floor mats and cargo mat for the 2002 Sequoia?

I HAVE A 2001 SEQUOIA WITH 65,000 MILES ON IT. IT RUNS LIKE A CHAMP AND HAULS LIKE ONE TOO. ANYWAYS, I HAVE NEVER CHANGED THE FAN BELT ON MY TRUCK, SO WHEN DO I NEED TO DO THAT...THANKS

There is one serpantine belt that drives all your accessories. I don't think there are any hard/fast rules about when to change it. Many repair places suggest you replace them every three years.
Inspect it to see if it is cracked, brittle or damaged. If it has never been replaced, then It may be a good idea to replace it before it breaks and leaves you stranded. Many Toyota truck owners I know replace their belts with Goodyear Gatorback belts.
