#2240 of 3858 1991 toyota corolla gauge lights prob.
Dec 14, 2005 (8:31 am)
I'm having a problem with my 1991 toyota corolla, this car is all stock, and has had no previous problems. The problem is, in the morning when I start my car the battery light and brake light on the dash, stay lite for about 30 min, it has just started within the last week and I'm confused about what it could be, I just changed my battery eariler today due to a bad cell. I thought that this was the problem, but the lights still appear. anyone no what the problem could be thanks for your time.

Thanks for the reply to my fuel filter question. Sounds like crappy engineering to me. Why not just put the filter where it can easily be replaced?

Because it does not need to be replaced. The prior generation Corollas (pre '98) had ones that needed (per owner's manual) to be replaced every 30 or 60k miles. Most cars are like this now, and so far it is not causing any problems for Toyota. I cannot recall ever reading or hearing any problems associated with this type of fuel filter system. Saves me $ and time, and does not decrease reliability. Obviously, I completely disagree that it is "crappy engineering." It is a Toyota, after all!

My driver's side front window works intermittently on my '99 Corolla. Is there an easy way to find out if it's the switch or the window motor that's bad? I'd like to replace the bad part myself, but I don't know how to determine which part is bad. Since either part is considered electrical, I probably wouldn't be able to return either part, and both of these parts are fairly expensive. Also, where is the best place to order these parts? Auto parts stores like Autozone and Advance Auto don't seem to carry these type of parts and getting them from the Toyota parts dept. is extremely expensive.

Does anyone know why the '06 Corolla has 4hp less that the '05?
Here's the reason for my question: My '05 (20K Miles) is having the "INTERMITTENT NO START CONDITION ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 1ZZ-FE ENGINE" (TSB# 01805). If I take my car in to fix the prob and they (Toyota Dealer) reprogram the computer to '06 specs, will my car lose those 4hp?
Also, has anyone had any problem with slippage from 1-2 on the automatics? Thanks

My 2001 Corolla dashboard light that lights up the speedometer just went out--it's dificult to read the speedometer now. I want to know if anyone can tell me how to fix it.

I'm having the same problem on my 2001 Corolla. Did you receive any information on how to fix the problem?

Thanks for the explanation. It is annoying though.

Is it possible to connect a MP3 to the radio/cd (Creative, no IPOD, through the cd changer socket? is there an aftermarket device?

Dec 15, 2005 (4:11 pm)
The hp ratings of many Japanese cars were reduced for the '06 model year because of a change in the way the SAE [Society of Automotive Engineers] measures horsepower. Previous guidelines allowed testing the engine with no accessories running, and under conditions that encouraged a lot of optimistic numbers. The Japanese seemed most affected by the new procedures. Many American cars actually "gained" hp.
In every case, there is nothing really new - the engines produce the same power they did last year, but this is a lower number under the new testing guidelines. The '06s haven't "lost" anything - it just wasn't there in the first place.
Having the TSB applied to your car will change nothing in regard to its power output.
