#52 of 57 2006 Matrix FWD - Battery loses when off
Dec 19, 2010 (12:16 pm)
For a while, I have had a daily problem with a new battery.
With battery +&- attached, battery dies overnight.
With - disconnected, battery holds for work day but not overnight every time I test.
With +&- disconnected, battery holds overnight.
Good starts with jumps.
Everything is OFF when ignition off.
How do I diagnose further?
#53 of 57 Part # in case rear defogger light bulb goes out
Jan 25, 2011 (3:37 pm)
The light for my rear defogger that illuminates when turn the headlights on went out on my 2006 Toyota Matrix. The light bulb for when I activate the rear defogger was fine. I hated that the button just didn't illuminate, so I wanted to fix it. I looked online and found some website where someone asked what the part number was, but didn't get a response. Well, I ordered the light bulb, replaced it and am now happy. Replacing it was pretty simple. Can't find that website now, so in case someone needs the info: the part number is 90011-01022 description "bulb, w/cap".

My door open light makes a clicking sound when it flicks on and off
And I am sure all doors and trunk are closed.
This happens on more uneven roads. Highway is fine.
Any help ?

I have a 2007 matrix,that did the same thing,it was the back window over the trunk. Looked closed but was not,if you can open the window when the car is locked that's it. The weight of the window bumps the switch when you hit a bump.this worked for me,hope it works for you.

#57 of 57 Driver side head light issue
Oct 24, 2013 (10:04 am)
I have a 2005 matrix, upon my last car inspection, what I thought was a burned out light bulb turned out to be a smoldered connector. The plug where the bulb plugs into was charred, so the garage replaced the part. This was in June '13... 4 months later, the exact same piece is fried again... has anyone had this issue? I have complete trust in the garage that I use, therefore I do not think it is faulty work on their part. What concerns me about this is that I have a friend that had a matrix then, one day, just caught on fire (thankfully while not in it)....
The part is going to be replaced again... I am the original owner of this car and other than a recall that came in for a computer board, this has been the issue of significance that has come up.
I also want to mention, that the high-beams still worked, even though the driving light/low-beam did not.
