  1. Unlock before locking?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Nothing happens if I hit it again. But if I hit unlock, it does the unlock thing (with two beeps) and then it will lock as expected.
  2. Unlock before locking?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I will try the other fob and/or swapping the battery in this one. As a quick followup, I've parked and locked the car twice since starting this thread. The first time, it worked fine. The second time (a few minutes ago) was as described above; non-responsive at first, but fine after unlocking...
  3. Unlock before locking?

    Battery in the key fob? Possibly. We've had it for about 11 months now. But once I hit unlock it works just fine so it seems like the battery is okay.
  4. Unlock before locking?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Hi all, I've just started noticing some odd behavior when locking the door with the remote. As far as I can tell, this is a new thing... As I walk away from the car and hit the lock button, it doesn't always lock. I'm not sure if this happens every single time (need to pay more attention, I...
  5. Crossbar options for 2014 Limited

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Keep in mind that the height of the crossbars is necessary for it to clear the antenna fin on the rear of the roof. If you had shorter bars and tried to mount something like a long cargo box, the antenna fin would be in the way.
  6. Rear Seat Entertainment System SD Card [Solved]

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Any idea if other converters can create the Panasonic BluRay format? Just wondering if it might be possible to find a more user-friendly workflow. But hey, this is a HUGE step forward.

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    This is great info. Any further updates or insights would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Accuracy of mpg estimates?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    A site that I follow recently posted a graph of hand-calculated mileage estimates vs. the computer estimates that the Highlander produces. Yup, they're correlated, but I was surprised to see such a good fit between between the real-world estimates and the computer estimates...
  9. two questions about cargo area

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    On mine, it just attached to the material right on the back of the seat, which is sorta fuzzy so the velcro sticks. Hope this helps.
  10. two questions about cargo area

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    The cargo mat attaches to the material on the seat backs with velcro discs. Not sure about the "tool box" though.
  11. Adapting 2nd row captain chairs for a dog

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Love that site. And this one, too, of course. As for that diy seat-between-the-captains-chairs earlier in this thread... Cool! Nice work, mooster.
  12. Headrest uncomfortable?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I like them, but I'm tall -- 6'5".
  13. Where to stick the Chrome University Auto Emblem?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Interesting point. Hopefully Phil has debadged his Highlander. Otherwise he's been driving around in a car decorated with a symbol of uselessness. What's next? A letterman's jacket and a neck tattoo?
  14. Rear A/C controls

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    The auto button refers to the fan. If you crank them temp down on a hot day, the fan winds up to a higher level until it approaches the desired temp. And vice versa, turn the temp up closer to ambient and the fan backs down. I would assume it works the reverse in the winter with the heat on.
  15. 3rd Gen Highlander. Why I prefer the bench.

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I'm with you, dooper. Our kids are older, but the seating restrictions on the Limited kept us at the XLE.
