  1. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hello, I have a 2008 Toyota Camry XLE 2.4L (non-hybrid), U250E Transmission. I replaced the exhaust manifold gasket on it and accidentally touched the positive lead on the alternator to the exhaust manifold gasket, needless to say, it caused a spark and scared me. I was happy because I fixed a...

  3. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    2000 Toyota Corolla VE, Automatic. 156k miles. Howdy, so the other day I went to start my car and when I turned the ignition, it sounded like the engine stopped short suddenly. I thought I just didn't keep my key cranked over for long enough. I tried again and engine started fine, but I had...
  4. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    We have an '06 Highlander Limited V6. It's been a fantastic vehicle with no issues until this week when my wife left a window down in the rain. We had pretty significant storms all night and I did not see that the window was down until morning. The vehicle has since dried out, but we have...
  5. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hi, this is a Japanese Domestic Market 2006 Toyota Corolla Runx (full details at the bottom). The AC no longer blows cold air. Bought the car last summer it was working fine, owner mentioned they just recharged the AC too (might have been a bad sing in retrospect). A couple months ago when we...

  7. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    When my '91 4cyl is in park, I can hear the shift lock solenoid switching back and forth randomly, sometimes rapidly. I usually need the shift lock override button to shift out of park, but occasionally it will be unlocked. Any diagnostic tips? I can't find the shift lock solenoid in any of the...
  8. Cressida Forum
    Hey everybody after a few weeks of on-off trying to get my 82' Cressida sedan running I'm stumped. I know it's an electrical issue I'm just having a hard time pin pointing it. I do have some ideas however. Let me bullet point what I know. -I bought the car about 2 months ago and drove it an...
  9. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hi, I have a problem where my brake lights stay illuminated brightly (both sides in the rear and the third brake light in the rear window) whenever my automatic headlights come on at night. So whenever I drive at night, my brake lights are always on, not just the dim running tail lights. I did...
  10. 4Runner 3rd Generation (1996-2002)
    I have a 2001 4Runner. It will not start unless I jump it. I can drive it for 30 minutes or so but then the check engine lights, battery, VSC, ABS lights all come on. The next morning the car won't start and I have to jump it again. My mechanic says it's not the battery OR the alternator. What...
  11. Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Hey Toyota Nation, here's a curveball for you. I run full size derby cars and thought it would be fun to try a Enduro race I bought a 1996 Avalon with a v6, it ran great, fast little car. I was about 90% done with the build and had to cut the eyebrow off of the instrument panel to fit my safety...
  12. Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    Howdy y'all! I'm new around here and have been searching for an answer to my problem. I've got an '02 Avalon XLS with the split bench (131K), and the interior dash lights do not go into "night mode" when I put the low-beams on. They stay in "daytime mode". All the other lights go on when I go...
  13. T-100 Forum
    I have a t100 I just bought I got it home and tried to start it. It will start, run for 1-2 seconds, then die. The fuel pump does NOT operate unless the engine is cranking. But builds up pressure 45 psi and holds 42 psi for over ten minutes what's wrong?
  14. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    I have been scrubbing through these forums looking for fixes to my driver and passenger seatbelts. These are the ones that are supposed to move back and forth on a track when the car starts and the door is closed. I tried winding them manually by turning the little knob under the kick panel but...
  15. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    To those that have added switches in the blank spots (by the traction control button): Did you simply cut out the empty slots or do they unscrew/pop out from the back? Looks to me like they're part of the mold so probably need to cut them out... just wanted to check before messing something up.
  16. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I recently replaced the alternator on my 01 2.2 Camry and after doing so, the car seems like it has something draining the battery. The alternator is definitely working and the battery turned a year old in December 2020. Should I be looking for a parasitic draw somewhere or is there something...
  17. Tacoma 3rd Generation (2016+)
    Hi first time posting here, we have a couple of issues and are in need of some input...ready? We bought the truck in Sacramento, CA Dec 27, 2017 and after 4 months the truck had a loss of power and seemed to eat through the fuel, the reason we got the 4 cylinder was the gas mileage (we commute...
  18. Prius Prime 1st Gen (2012-2016)
    Hi fellow Toyota owners! I'm the new owner of a '21 Rav4 Prime plug-in hybrid. It is a truly impressive car. I've so far owned Lexus, then a BMW and now a Toyota hybrid. I'm a hybrid fan, even though it means that there are other hybrid-related glitches and some issues. Comparing the Lexus...
  19. Highlander 2nd Gen - Hybrid (XU40/2008-2013)
    Hey! I've been lurking on this community for about a year now trying to absorb as much knowledge as I can. I figured it was about time to jump all the way in. Things I've been researching: I have been battling the dreaded "insert map dvd" error message on my jbl nav stereo. After trying and...

    Hi there, New to the forum. I drive a 1999 SR5 4Runner, semi-new to me! Have had no electrical issues until this week when both of my headlights went out without warning. The highbeams, running lights, and turn signal lights work. All functions of the signal arm/light switch seem to work...
