#882 of 2179 2002 Sequoia Limited Homelink?
Oct 27, 2004 (7:46 am)
I have a 2002 Sequoia Limited. My question is this. It has the home link system with 3 black buttons up on the console by the moon roof & rearview mirror which have white dots on them that are illuminated at night, 1st button having 1 dot, 2nd button having 2 dots and the 3rd button having 3 dots, meaning garage door 1, garage door 2 and garage door 3. When I purchased it new in 2002, the white dots on the buttons for the home link garage door openers were illuminated so you could see which button to push for whatever garage door you wanted to open. Over the past 16 months, the buttons are no longer illuminated. They have gone out 1 at a time. I know this for a fact because I drive at night and when I come home I would simply look up, see which button had the 3 illuminated dots on it and push it for my side of the garage to open. The dealership I bought my Sequoia at that also services it, has had no luck getting the buttons lit up again. I have been told repeatedly that they were never lit. They have called the factory and have looked at books and nobody can figure it out. Is it possible that the buttons may have had something like a "glow in the dark" paint on them and it has rubbed off? Did they only have the illuminated buttons on the 2002? This is driving me crazy since now I am opening all the other doors on my house but the right one because I can't see the little 3 white dots anymore! I also have a 2003 4-Runner Limited but the 3 buttons for the home link in this vehicle are grey rubber, no illumination, that is why I believe they may have taken this option out of the Toyota lineup. Any help would be appreciated! Sorry this post is so long, just very frustrated that I am constantly being told that they were never lit when I know they were.

I solved all brake problems on my 2001 sr5 by replacing the standard brake pads with ceramic pads. They cost a little more but they produce less dust, no noise and last longer than standard pads. Well worth the investment. I used Raybestos, but there are many manufacturers out there.

My 2002 Ltd never had illuminatd buttons for the home link.

NO, STILL DONT KNOW WHAT IT IS. DEALER HAS HAD MY SEQUOIA FOR OVER A WEEK NOW "WORKING" ON STUFF, BUT HASN'T FOUND WHAT THE STATIC NOISE IS. MY EXHAUST SYSTEM HAD TO BE REPLACED THOUGH. IF YOU HAVE "THAT SMELL" GET TO THE DEALER, THERE IS A TSB OUT NOW ABOUT THE EXHAUST SYSTEM AND THEY WILL REPLACE IF IN WARRANTY.
HAVE YOU FOUND YOURS YET?
Oct 27, 2004 (9:20 pm)
I never had a TSB done. I know now that there is a TSB on my 04 squeaky sunroof. My question is, how do I approach the dealer about this. Do I just tell them right away that I know there is a TSB out on it? Also, it seems like the squeak goes away when the dealer test drives it. Does the dealer have to hear it or can they jujst fix it regardless. Thanks

#888 of 2179 Potential problems 2002 2WD Seqoia? Please Advice! Brake?
Oct 28, 2004 (4:05 pm)
I am new to this site, owned new 2002 SR5 2WD Sequoia with only 10,000 miles. Because did not drive much, so far have not noted any problem (knock on wood) for my Sequoia. I have read there are many problems for the Sequoia on this site. I know very little about TSB. Noted that there are many redesign or improvement for the model later than 2002. Before run out of guaranty, Any one please advice all the potential major problems may occur to this model under TSB or guaranty that will be fix or replace by TOYOTA. How do I check or isolate the problems and approach the dealer to make them replace the redesign and new improve for this car. I am sure that definitely the brake issue needed to take care. What can I tell the dealer about the brake? Thank you very much.

I had an 03 Sequoia Limited,and now have an 05 Sequoia Limited and both home links were all illuminated. The E/M,1 dot,2dots,3dots,and the mode button. They are definitely lit by bulbs. I suggest telling the dealer to look at a new one on their lot. I can't believe they didn't already do this? Good Luck!!

Thank You very much! I am not crazy. I am going to the dealership and ask to sit in a new one myself, and I will wait until the time change this weekend so it will be dark outside and then maybe they can see what I am talking about!
#891 of 2179 Intermittent Fuel Gage Failure
Oct 29, 2004 (1:23 pm)
I have a 2003 Sequoia limited. Recently the fuel gage has failed intermittently at the empty position when I start the vehicle. After about 10 -30 minutes it starts to slowly creep up to the proper level (close to full). This has happened on two separate occasions. Has anyone else had this problem?
