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.

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"

I don't think 2000s have a TPMS sensor in the wheel, IIRC prior to 07 they used the ABS system for the TPMS.
#403 of 460 '03 Sienna engine noise when cold
Jan 25, 2010 (6:24 pm)
I have a 2003 Sienna CE that I bought in January '03. It was about the last '03 they had before the '04 started showing up. It now has 115k miles, and it has been an excellent car overall.
Here is an issue that cropped up at least a couple of years ago:
On cold mornings, when the transmission holds 2nd gear until 35-40 mph, the engine revs to ~ 3000-3500 rpm. At that time, there is a noise from under the hood that sounds like a rattling heat shield or like pinging, depending on who you ask.
I can reproduce the noise with the car parked and the hood raised by grabbing the throttle directly. The noise appears to come from the front cylinder bank. My mechanic suspects the VVT mechanism, and I suspect it'll be spendy to fix. It also doesn't seem to be too big a deal, as it's been going for around 30k miles.
When the car is warmed up, the noise disappears.
Recently I was biking home from work and was passed at close range by another l Sienna with exactly the same noise... except louder.
So I thought I'd ask: Is anybody else experiencing this noise? Has anyone had it fixed, and how? Advice and comments are much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

That is correct, I got an 07 and read about that new feature when it came out.
