  1. Unboxing a 2017-2019 Toyota Highlander...Toy Model LOL

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    the little plastic stick that you found when you first opened the box, and you said "oh oh' this is not a good sign", was my first reaction also when I got mine. THINK I may have found its purpose...I use it to open the doors/tailgate/hood!

    Thanks for the info. Ironically, my dealership, Mark Motors in Stevens Point, Wi. just called me today to say they have ordered the JBL amplifier. Will call me when it comes in to set up appointment for installation. Hope there isn't a long backlog.

    Does anyone have the official Toyota TSB number for the JBL amplifier fix for this voice activation problem on the 2019 Highlander Platinum? And/or if so, would you also post a copy of it? Thanks, much appreciated!

    My story exactly Harleyrider, thanks for posting! To this, I add my Tracfone flip not able to link via Bluetooth to the screen inorder to use voice commands in order to call or talk handsfree. Oh it will "link" alright but very for a very short time only, after which the screen and all functions...

    Yep, replacing the head unit of radio did NOT solve the voice activation issue, kept my fingers crossed that it would. Had the head unit replaced due to a different issue that you can find under "Pairing phone?" on this forum. Tried to pair older LG Tracfone to my 2019 Highlander, as it paired...
  8. Pairing phone?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Thanks, thought about that. Wondering if you know if Toyota has changed bluetooth protocol since 2016? Even older LG Tracfone worked perfectly in 2016 Highlander Hybrid Limited Platinum without screwing up everything else in screen, and in previous 2012 Rav4 Limited also. So thought surely brand...

    Sad indeed.... that for what we paid for these otherwise fine vehicles, that there has to already be a workaround, with no apparent attempt by Toyota to rectify problem. At least the workaround allows the voice activation to be able to be used. Unlike an even bigger issue I have that you can...
  10. Pairing phone?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    2019 HIGHLANDER LIMITED PLATINUM: purchased 11/09/2018, now has 2750 miles. When I paired my older LG Flip Tracfone, after about an hour, everything on 8" screen in dash faded to being totally blank. Everything including audio, homescreen and apps buttons on L of screen totally inoperable...

    Hey Slitelytoasted, Sorry to hear the workaround I was made aware of by my Toyota dealer has not worked for you. Several other people on this forum have had success with it, so don't know what to say. Another one that I found by myself, before going to the dealer that also works for me and some...
  12. Head unit(radio, etc)?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Hey Harleyrider421...the thread to that voice activation issue can be found in the Highlander 3rd Generation(2014 +) Forum, subject to look for says: "2019 Highlander voice in guidance or navigation" Until they get it fixed, my dealership told me about a pretty nifty workaround. BEFORE you even...
  13. Head unit(radio, etc)?

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    2019 Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum 2100 Miles: on startup, the usual "Toyota" emblem appears in the screen, then turns to homescreen, as its supposed to....but, then keeps recycling thru that pattern and after about 10 minutes of doing that, screen turns to total black..all buttons(audio...

    Have to do this EACH and EVERY time you plan on using voice activation for any function at all. Doesn't matter if its navigation, linked phone, radio commands, etc etc.....Good luck
  15. Reversing the Auto Engine Off feature

    Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    omg you guys...for $65 I can push that little s/s disable switch on the dash an almost infinite number of times, right after I hit the heated steering wheel switch to turn it on. Matter of fact, I wish the heated steering wheel was an auto-on like the s/s switch, and a switch had to be hit to...
