#1322 of 2179 Sequoia tailgate latch and window track rust
Nov 03, 2005 (8:02 am)
I have a 2002 Sequoia SR5 that I've had for just under 4 years. The tailgate latch is now inoperable (it does not latch) and appears to have rusted internally. When I removed the interior panels to see what was wrong I also found the window tracks severely corroded and the window will not raise or lower. I've spoken to Toyota customer service and they inform me they've not seen these problems. The vehicle is used in upstate New York where salt is used on the roads but the vehicle is kept clean and is garaged over half the time. Has anyone else experienced similar issues? The last vehicle I owned that had a tailgate this bad was a 1979 Jeep Cherokee. Also I just got my recall notice for the replacement of the front ball joints. Replies will be appreciated.

We have been fighting this same intermittent problem for a year. The computer finally pulled an error code and its the master brake cylinder pressure sensor.....

Its the master cylinder pressure sensor. The sensor is saying "NO Pressure" an is putting the vehicle into a protect you mode.

I have a 97 Camry and the driver's door handle broke. I think it was a $200 repair bill. My son has a 99 Camry and his door handle just broke. I am thinking there are a lot of these out there and because it is a several thousand dollar item isn't getting much attention.

what you have to do is take the screws out at the top of the dashboard console the black rim around dash then carefully remove to avoid scratches. Once this is done it should be a white beace with 4 screws remove those. Once this is done slide out dash and you shouls see 3 plugs going into back of dash remove center one. Once this is removed your gauges including speedometer will not work. You can slide everything back into place and drive and slide the plug 1/2 way in so you can stick your hand back to slide in too periodically check fuel consumption. This has saved me alot of headaches with Toyota and prolonged my warranty time. Any other ?'s let me know. Good luck and you may want too keep this info for a select few if you get my drift.

My 2003 4x4 Sequoia does the same exact thing! In my case, I've noticed that the "shifting/surges" typically occur right as you start to release the brake from a stop but before you give the truck any gas.
Problem is, it doesn't do it everytime and is not predictable. I've tried getting our service dept to investigate, but they can't find anything wrong and have never actually experienced it (despite me driving the tech around for 15min).
I had resigned to waiting for the symptoms to get worse, so they could identify the problem. Unfortunately, or fortunately (depending on how you look at it) the problem hasn't really changed in frequency or severity.
Has anyone else experienced this? Anyone ever fix it?

Hi ya! I have an '01 Sequoia, and I have the same problem with the forward surge at stops. I took mine in to the dealer, and the guy said it was normal for all of the Sequoias and Tundras. Unfortunately, I can't remember what all of the technical jargon was, but it had something to do with the rear-end springs and the load 'releasing'. He said it happened in his Tundra, too, and that it is nothing to worry about. Hope that helps!
