so actually what happened? Did you mean the car will not response when you brake or it will fish tail when you step on it that make you believe the ABS is not working?

can you losen the thumb screw on the side of the bar to get it out? I know that's how you move it forward and back but not sure you can actually take it out. But I guess it should.

I notice my AWD sienna has a leak from the rear "gear box?"
it's kind of a clear fluid.
I used to own a AWD Town and country and I had the same problem. Not sure if it is common to AWD

Thanks for response.
The brakes totally fails, the pedal goes to the floor and it does not slow down, so I coast until I stop. However, when I release the brake pedal and then reapply the brake it works fine. The dealership is unable to finds error codes and brakes work fine when it is their hands. It has happen 3 times in 18,000 miles, I scared that the brakes will not work the next time I reapply the brakes.

You should document all the complaint and concern you have with your local toyota dealer. In case of an accident, you can always prove that you did contact toyota and you did try to address the issue with them. You may able to SUE them. Hey, we are in America

Thanks for your response. I prefer not to be DEAD right regarding the failure of the ABS system. The reason I posted the problem was two fold: first see if other owners had similar problem and how they solved it: second to let other owners beware of the issue, if their brake petal goes to the floor, it might be the malfunction of ABS system so try releasing the brake and re-appling the brakes again.

This sounds like a problem that was previously posted so you should search back a bit.
I was badly injured by a defective hatch on my 2005. The dealership and local reps denied problems. I filed an incident report to nhtsa and engaged them in some dialog. As it turned out, Toyota had issued a technical service bulletin for the problem 1 year before my accident. I would encourage you to file an incident report as it may help keep the automakers honest and us safer.

Thanks for your response. I was able to find that owners of Sienna 2004 had similar complaints, but no resolution was posted. Please other owners with intermittent ABS failure such that the brake pedals goes to the floor and you do not slow down, but when you reapply the brakes they work fine: let me know, since my dealership finds nothing wrong.
