Thank you for this information! Our 2001 rear door handle just broke and its 25deg. outside. Now that I know what this job is going to take I can plan for it. Thank you for sharing!

I have owned my 01 for a year now. I bought it with the following problems;
1. no bright light indicator
2. no D indicator light
3. window in tailgate will not operate
As I read these posts, I see that all 3 of these problems seem to be prevalent in the Sequoia. I am going to try and address these issues with Toyota. I will keep everyone informed as to my progress or lack thereof.

#1374 of 2179 CD player problems
Dec 27, 2005 (10:47 pm)
I have a 2004 Sequoia Limited with the in dash 6 disc changer. I tried to load a cd in the other day and it acted like it got jammed. The player then read error 3 on the face. I tried to eject but nothing happened. I read in the owners manual to try this, but it didn't work. It said if problem exists to contact my dealer. Is there another fix I can try before I have to go to the dealer or do I need to take it in? Anyone else encounter this problem? If so, was problem fixed in a day, or do I need to get a loaner? What can I expect? Thanks for the help

My leak was lower, but the issue is that the tailgate is designed to take on water. I would not be shocked if your issue is the same problem I had. Remove the plastic trim in the area surrounding the leak. The trim is held on by plastic 'clips' that have a small rubber washer/gasket. When these washers get a little worn, it leaks. Go to the hardware store and get some similar rubber plumbing washers and put them on the clips and re-install. It is easy and dirt cheap. I would give that a try first thing... nothing to lose. Good luck.

We just recently brought our 02 Toyota Sequoia (We bought it new) into the dealership to have the recall on the front ball joints taken care of and asked them to look our rear window because it has not been working in over a year and also our D indicator light has been out. We also needed them to fix our gear shift because it was real loose and not going into park very well. They said the rear window motor needs to be replaced. We had them fix the gear shift which they said was broken (cost - $450), but did not get the rear window fixed because it was going to cost about $550 and that seemed to be about double what we thought it might cost. (we rarely used the rear window anyway, but it would be nice to have it working) They said it would cost $100 to fix the D indicator light, but we didn't have them do it, but after they fixed the gear shift, they said they moved the bulb from the L position up to the D position, so now our D light is on, but we don't have a L light. Anyway, your email caught our attention. We would like to find a rear window motor and install it ourselves if that is the problem.

We also had a problem with our gear shift being loose and not going into Park very well. Took it in and they said it was broke. They replaced shift sub assembly. Cost us $450. We have an 02 Sequoia with 97,000 miles on it.

I just recieved a diagnosis on my VSC trac/trac off light that had come on during a drive to work but has since not come on again. The dealer said it was a swith on my brake booster that would effect the performance of my brakes in emergency breaking situations. The switch cost is $900 then more for labor. Has anyone had this problem or can offer help?
