Wow, my 2004 Toyota Highlander has been doing the same thing you mentioned in your Mar.17 post. I have an appointment tomorrow with Toyota but to have it towed 35 miles to the nearest dealership along will be expensive. I have not been able to drive over 25 mph before the brakes go on and the VSC warning alarm sounds. The "Low Tire Pressure" light has been on since I replaced a very worn front tire about a week ago. Yesterday, I bought 4 new Yokohama's tires (recommended by Toyota) and got the "Low Tire Pressure" light off but the brakes are still locking up and the alarm sounding. I read about initialization after new tires but now I'm really afraid to drive the car the way it is. Any ideas out there?
#2633 of 5315 VSC Malfunction
Apr 24, 2005 (6:33 am)
To clarify my post above (my first, sorry), "robert19" had mentioned the VSC light flashing and brakes locking while driving. Another individual had experienced the same thing. Both have 2004 Highlanders. A technician thought the problem might originate in the sensor of 2004 Highlanders. My VSC system is activated once I hit 25 mph and goes back off when I slow to less than 20 mph. Has anyone else had a similar situation and what was the solution? Thanks.

I looked at my wife's 01HL over the weekend, I have no idea how you can get into the ashtray. I checked the surrounding but yes, it's like a puzzle. I hope someone else will come up with an answer. Worst case, just forget it and setup your homelink. Good luck

FYI I have a '02 Highlander limited and it does lock & unlock doors automatically. They lock when you shift out of Park and they unlock when you shut off the car

tip you may be able to run the wire through the weather stripping to the front of the headliner, however removing the plastic on windshield pillars (AKA a-pillars) won't damage air bag, just don't shove screwdriver or anything sharp underneath it

#2639 of 5315 2001: noise, storage, and radio reception
Apr 25, 2005 (12:28 pm)
I just got a 2001 Highlander (34500 miles) and did a road trip from Boston to Ohio & back. I actually love this vehicle, except for a few issues.
Any solutions for these problems?
1- Radio reception
Radio picks up stations like the antenna is disconnected
I see the complaints here, no solutions. I'd taken it in for repair/check on this issue before the roadtrip -- no improvement.
2- no storage
No center console, no place to put change, cup holders waaaay down by the floor (useless).
Same old 'helicopter' painful noise when rear window is down, as listed here.
But, also the fast/wind vibrating/metal sound ...like exhaust manifold or fan-hitting-cowling sound by left/driver side. I assume its that TSB:nv012-01 thing?

Our 2002 did the same - just find the loose roof rack slide clamp and hand tighten.
Annoying wasn't it?
