Toyota Sienna, Van
#392 of 460 2002 Sienna P0440, P0441, P0442, P0446
Oct 05, 2009 (4:31 am)
I had these 4 codes show up on my 2002 Sienna, 145,000 miles, coincidentally, about a week after a timing belt change. I verified the hose and electrical connections in the engine compartment, and under the vehicle, and they were all fine, then proceeded to diagnose the VSV valves on the EVAP system. All the valves were freely clicking, and letting or stopping airflow, as required. I didn't find any vacuum leaks in the system, or malfunction of the canister. So, what next, I wondered? The fall-back in the service manual is to replace the charcoal canister, so I did. It worked! My readiness monitors are all completed, and there aren't any codes pending or set (whereas previously, codes set on the first drive pattern cycle). My van now makes a very robust swoosh when I open the gas cap.
If you're reading this, you probably have these codes. Search the internet, and you'll find many similar problems on Toyotas from this era, fixed the same way. If you can't find a stuck valve, or holed hose, or failed gas cap, the canister is a likely culprit. My canister cost $229 on eBay, thru a Toyota dealer in Vandalia, Ohio...
Good luck, Pete
#393 of 460 LH Turn signal and Flasher out
Oct 20, 2009 (1:18 pm)
On my 04 Sienna the LH turn signal and left side emerg. flashers do not work. The right side works fine. The dashboard L turn indicator does not light. Both front and rear blubs appear to be good. Dealer wants to troubleshoot either turn signal switch problem or electrical problem. This usually means big $$$. Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks

There is a single fuse for the entire turn signal and emergency flasher circuit. The right side works, the left side doesn't. Thanks for your reply
#396 of 460 rear blind spot
Oct 20, 2009 (4:11 pm)
has anyone had a problem with the middle row, passenger side headrest blocking their view out the passenger side back rear window?
i cannot see anyhing and have to remove the headrest in fear of not seeing traffic.
i even tried putting the low profile middle seat headrest there but it will not fit.
love the car and am a fan of toyota but there are a few things that make me go: huh?

No big deal to remove it if your kids are not that tall. You want the top of the seat to reach their ear level. When they outgrow it, put it back.

#399 of 460 2010 battery drain?
Oct 29, 2009 (11:48 am)
i have seen a few posts re mid 2000 siennas and the battery draining if you leave the rear hatch open because "the computer is talking to the open hatch"....has anyone had this happen with later years?
i park my 2010 le in a garage and usually leave the power doors and the back hatch open...so far, so good but i do not want to do it if it will drain the battery.
thanks for any feed back.
#400 of 460 Tire pressure censor.

I have a 2000 Toyota Sienna. How do i reset the Tire pressure censor?

not sure about a 2000, but my 2010 sensor came on after a 270 mile highway trip in cold weather... i just filled the tires up to the correct pressure and the light went off by itself.
i think you can also press and hold the small round button on the drivers side dash....it is one of the switches by your knees(2010), but if the tire pressure is still low it will come back on.
and "baba-booey to you all"
