The Toyota clock uses 4 springs to make elictrical contact to the clock circuit, the springs are wound to loose to make good contact with the pins. for my clock, I took out the springs and soldered 4 short pieces of 30 gauge wire to the circuit board and no problems since. Please note that the pins are pressed thru plastic, you will need to provide a heat sink and solder quickly to make a good connection without melting the plastic. Good luck and boo to Toyota for a lousy circuit design.

Problem solved. The brake shop sanded the brake pads and the squeaky sound is gone.

I think what you are feeling with the brakes is related to the brake assist feature that is standard on this vehicle. I noticed the same thing myslef and I've only had it 2 days, but it made sense to me because the owners manual talks about the ABS and brake assist.

The noise is a pop that comes from the thigh adjuster under the seat. There is too much play in the device and this causes it to pop when moved. There is no fix for the problem, and toyota has never acknowledged that it is a design flaw in the seat. I have been complaining about this since 2004....good luck!

I think mine has more vibration than others. I complained with Toyota headquarter and later the dealer replaced the brake master cylinder. Now I still feel the vibration but alot better than before.
#1786 of 2607 95 Toyota A/C works only while engine is cold
Jun 02, 2006 (4:42 am)
My '95 Toyota 6 cyl. 2 wheel drive, 105,000 miles, developed an A/C problem:
1. -while the engine is cold, the A/C works fine for 5-6 minutes, then the air warms up while the compressor is running;
2. -re-starrting the engine and turning the A/C on/off, does not help.
It has been serviced only by Toyota; a month ago they tried to put more refrigerant in it, but it doesn't help. They told me they never heard of such a problem!
My colleagues think that the refrigerant is gelling (?), because the A/C was not turned on during the winter. Any suggestions?

sounds like a classic expansion valve malfunction to me.

Thanks for your timely response!

I am going to take my 97 2WD in for a 120K service. I have previously replaced the timing belt and replaced the water pump. In addition to the dealer's recommended items, can any one think of items that should be done? Thanks.....
