#2671 of 3858 Seat Belt Flashing Problem
Oct 03, 2006 (9:35 am)
I recently replaced the dome light bulb and now my seat belt light constantly flashes. I took out the light bulb and the flashing stopped. I called my Toyota dealer service department to ask if this was a problem with my model of Toyota (a 2000 Toyota Corolla sedan) and they said that I should bring it in for them to look at. I don't want to spend the money for a service check. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this problem. Has anyone else had this problem?
#2672 of 3858 Electrical issue
Oct 03, 2006 (11:16 am)
I have a 2000 Toyota Corolla LE with about 70,000 miles. I just replaced the bulb in the overhead light and the seat belt light started flashing. It didn't stop flashing until I removed the overhead light bulb. I called my Toyota dealer to ask if this is a problem with this model. Naturally he wanted me to bring in the car for a checkup. I always do the intermittent checkups. All I wanted was an answer to my question. Has anyone out there had the same problem? What have you done, if anything, about this problem? Right now my dome light isn't working and I plan on leaving it that way if that is my only issue.
#2673 of 3858 Rattling Noise in 1997 Toyota Corolla
Oct 03, 2006 (11:17 am)
Hi! I have a 1997 Toyota Corolla with 180K miles. When idling (such as at a stopsign or stoplight), there is a rattling/shaking noise under the hood. If I were to shift the car into park, the noise stops. It doesn't make the noise at any other time while driving, and seems to make the noise less when warmed up. Anyone have an idea?
#2674 of 3858 1991 Toyota Corolla NOx emission problem
Oct 04, 2006 (1:47 pm)
I have a 1991 Corolla. It failed the emission test for NOx. The CO and HC readings were fine and well below the maximum allowed. The "check engine" light has never come on and there are no error codes stored in the computer. The vacuum hoses are all good and fastened tightly and vacuum gauge readings are all normal. Spark plugs, wires, cap/rotor, and timing are all good. I tested the O2 sensor with a meter, and it fluctuates as specified between 0.3 and 0.7 volts indicating that the computer is consistently mixing the correct fuel/air ratio. There is no EGR valve, MAF, or O2 sensor after the converter on this engine (a 4AFE 1.6 liter), so that wouldn't be the problem. The car drives fine with no hesitation upon acceleration, although it idles a little rough at times and I get an amazing 36 mpg on the highway even though the EPA estimate for the highway is 29 mpg. I don't know if this is because of an overly lean conditon, but like I said, the O2 sensor is reading correctly and there are no computer error codes coming up. The car has 55,000 miles on it and this is the first time it hasn't passed the NOx test. (however,it passed 2000 miles ago) Has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know what the problem could be? I'm thinking converter, but I'd like to verify this with someone else who has had the same problem.

I have had a similar problem with my car. It has been serviced 6 times for this issue and they have not discovered the real cause. What was the outcome? My car is a 2003 and the first issue began at 30,000 miles.
#2676 of 3858 Question for Corolla "S" owners
Oct 08, 2006 (6:09 pm)
I was wondering if any one has had any problems with the lower body trim on the S model. I see that it has a rubber gasket between it and the car which is the same type of gasket that gave me trouble on my Tacoma overfenders. Is the trim staying tight against the vehicle?
#2677 of 3858 1993 Toyota corolla Transmission problems
Oct 09, 2006 (6:24 pm)
My son is having problems with his Toyota. When he stops at a stop sign he has to put his car in low then wait till it gets to 10 MPH to shift up to high. This is an automatic transmission. Someone said it sounded like the sensor. If so where is this little thingy at and is the possible answer to the problem . Need help in a big way here.
#2678 of 3858 2007 corolla arial base fix/repair????
Oct 14, 2006 (1:31 pm)
Garage door malfunctioned and the aerial and the threaded nut(?) was pulled from the base of the roof mount. The dealer is 100 mile trip away. Does anyone know what would be involved with fixing the problem? The two people I talked to at the dealer did not know what was required to do the fix. Can the nut(?) be put back into the base? Can the base be changed without changing the the wire lead to the head unit?

Greetings,my daughter's earlier model Corolla had the same symptoms---very frustrating finally undone the earth wire on the body/inside mudguard cleaned it and re tightened.
Problem now gone.
Earth on this earlier car has two wires,1 to the engine,1 to the body---anyway if all else fails try this idea.
Bye for now,Normo1
