#3034 of 3844 2006 Toyota Corolla Breakdown Question
Dec 17, 2007 (10:38 am)
A year ago, I purchased a 2006 Toyota Corolla Sport that had about 17,000 miles on it. The car now has about 34,000 miles on it and has had regular maintenance. Last Friday as I was driving home, my car suddenly decelerated and the check engine light, battery light and the oil pressure lights all came on and I had to coast over to the edge of the road. I could not immediately restart the engine but after a few minutes it started and I drove about 1/2 mile and it stopped again with the dash lights coming back on.(When the car was running, all lights except the check engine light disappeared.) I stopped and started like this 6 more times before I finally just had to have it towed to my home. I had 3/4 of a tank of gas that was purchased the night before from the station I always buy gas from. I have added a product to remove water from the gas line just in case that was the problem but the car still stalls and the dash lights still come on. I want to note that prior to this problem starting Friday, the car never acted sluggish, or displayed any problems. Does anyone have any idea as to what the problem is?

I would guess fuel pump or fuel pump relay. The dash lights normally come on when a car stalls, that doesn't mean anything. You should have the codes read with a scanner and see what that says.

If you have less than 36k miles and 3 years, it is under warranty. It also has a 5 year, 60k mile powertrain warranty.

Has anyone had to replace the computer in their car. The check engine light came on and the car was sluggish one minute and racing the next. Local dealer said the computer was bad and relaced it while under warranty. The car has about 17000 miles.

im having the same problem on 12/21/7 and have it narrowed dow to the door control under the driver seat i think. Has anyone else resolved this annoying problem of the doors continually trying to open even when they are already open. this car will sit in the garage and click open w/o the igntion even on. I have di-electric all contacts in doors etc. with no evail.

do you have remote/keyless auto unlock? if so, it's possible a FOB nearby (in a drawer with someone pressing on it, or in a pocket, or just a FOB that has a button that is worn out) is causing the system to try to open the vehicle.
another thing that comes to mind is a door lock with a bad (i.e. shorted) contact that is tricking the module into thinking you are requesting door unlock with the key.
or there is a bad unlock button in one of the doors.
or the module is bad.

2002 corolla door locks continually trying to open. I have di-electric the plugs in the two front door. taken the battery out of the FOB. unplugged all the plugs in the door control module and it still tries to open. this can can be in the garage and off and it still clicks. anyone have this problem on any toyota and how did you resolve this? thanks.

do you have more than one fob? it wouldn't be the first time...
look, if you've pulled all the plugs in the door control module (is that the thing that receives the signal from the FOB?), perhaps its possible the solenoid for one of the doors is constantly receiving the command to unlock, either through a broken door switch (and I mean this could be the keyswitch in the door), or the lock/unlock button on he door or some short downstream of the control module, but upstream of the solenoid itself.
you need to determine if its the remote system or one of the switches.
i don't think you've ruled either out at this point to narrow down your search for a root cause.
