#485 of 574 Toyota Corolla CE 2007 - malfunction light/ engine stalling
Jul 04, 2009 (7:34 pm)
Two days ago my cruise control stopped on its own, I reset it and its been fine since. Tonight my car engine stalled and I pulled off the road and restarted the car, the malfunction light was on. When i put it in drive it felt like the transmission had jumped. I could drive at a normal speed but the light was still on. I pulled off the road again and unscrewed the gas cap and reapplied it. The malfunction light turned off and I was able to drive normally. Has anyone else had similar problems and is this a one off or should I expect it to happen again?

Get your error codes read from the car computer, then look them up on the internet.

Sounds like it's much more than just a gas cap issue. Follow #485 suggestions.

Hi I read your note on the forum and just thought I'd ask how you made out since it was wrote. Our letter would go much the same way with our 09 Corrola! I tried the dealer, I tried Toyota Canada and they said it was my baby as it isn'nt a defect! Itold them I thought it was a design defect. Our problem is from the cabin air intake. Our service manager was quoted me 400.00 plus change to fix this nothing wrong problem. It burns me on a new vehichle that we even bought xtended warrenty,and they say we are sorry but it isn,t a problem! Toyota Canadano is 1 888 869 6828 Goodluck! Snow Gopher

Okay, so let me get this right, mice in your vehicle and you think either Toyota or your dealer is responsible for this? Hmmm! Maybe they just threw a $400.00 number out there just so you would go away? Don't get me wrong, I do understand that rodents and /or squirrels in a vehicle can wreck havoc, but how in the world could it possibly be someone else's fault? Don't you think an exterminator in or around your parking area can go along way in solving your problem? "09"'s have cabin air filters, how are they getting past the filter?

Bahhh, it ended up being the electrical panel, I was 4,000 km's over my warranty, so the dealer said no go on covering it, brought it to the garage that my office uses and he did the work for 1300.00. Ticks me off beyond belief that Toyota knows its a defect and does crap to cover it. I'm very disappointed in them and will never buy a Toyota again.

So was there a $1300.00 problem that allowed mice into your Corolla throu the electrical panel or did the mice chew the wires on the electrical panel to cause $1300.00 in damage?

Toyota knows its a defect and does crap to cover it.
A MOUSE DEFECT ?
Not sure how many Toyota vehicles made and sold over the years, but yours is the only one with a mouse problem and you claim Toyota is covering up some sort of defect.
Wow what an ego

hold on, I didn't have a mouse problem, I replied to the question asking what happened after my car stalled a few times. No ego here, just an empty wallet.
