Question about 2006 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

2006 Toyota 4Runner

I purchased used Toyota 4Runner from the Lexus of Seattle 2 months ago for $21,500.00
There are 2 big problems I was unaware of at time of purchase:
1) Horrible mildew smell fwhen using Air conditioner and heater.
2) everytime I wash my truck, there is alot of water in the back. How do I know if that is just needing Seal replacement.
The Lexus dealership has offered to take the vehicle back as a trade in on another vehicle. But I have already put on new tires and 2 oxegen sensors (covered by my extended warrently), I am not sure if I should spend money to fix these problems, IF they are fixable, (as I like the vehicle otherwise), or is this just a lemon and I will continue to have lots of problems.
Thanks Cindy

    same problem never got a clear cut answer. It is NOT a leak through to the carpets as it comes from the top vents not the foot vents

Good Day;
Sorry to hear about this for number 1) sounds to me that there was or is a leak from the heater core or the AC drain got plugged, and it's leaked back into the vehicle onto the carpet. With mildew you can try to clean it but I would replace the carpet..
2) sounds like it's the seal, good test is have some one pour water around the back were you thing the water is coming in at. and you can watch from the inside to see.
Now if the dealership is offer to trade it in you can ask if they would swap the tires around. But some time you just have to bit the bullet, and cut the lost of money and go into the trade.

Please let me know what happens and if you have any other info about these two problems.

Cheers

You should check your fuses inside and also the fuses under the hood if that's not it then its a wiring problem in the dash somewhere.

Does a 2006 Toyota 4Runner Sport need a 2 or 4 Wheel Alignment


There is nothing to adjust on the rear because it is a solid axle, most dealers and alignment shops do a 4wheel alignment anyway and they don't charge less for a two wheel alignment. A 4wheel alignment also reveals any possible bent suspension components or frame misalignment..

98 4 runner MAF problem. Was replaced 1 year ago with after market MAF. Check engine light would come on every 3 months. They would clean it and clear code. Now it only lasts 2 weeks. Took it to Toyota -...


Make sure that there are no leaks, on your duct hose..where the MAF is located..because if you are getting too much air..the MAF, will try to adjust to it, and it will throw your injectors out of wack, and then you will have a code...stating that you are running too rich, or lean, and then your plugs will foul out, because of too much gas, or not enough...and then it will trickle down to your O2 senors..it's a big chain reaction when it comes down to the MAF sensor...but check your Duct....

Thanks __________________ RAV Report this post to a moderator | IP: Logged 12-31-2004 02:11 AM NoliWan Member Registered: Dec 2004 Location: San Jose, CA Posts: 34 Hey RAV, I got your PM-- Here are the instructions for programming the 99-02 4Runner Keyless Entry factory remotes: 1. Start with the following conditions: you are in the vehicle a. Key is out of the ignition b. Drive door is open ( all other doors are closed) c. Driver door is unlocked (other door locks don't matter) 2. Insert the key into the ignition (don't turn it) and pull it out. 3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds: a. Cycle the power locks 5 times. Use an even pace and try to go relatively fast. b. Close, then open the drivers door. 4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds: a. Cycle the power locks 5 times (same as before). b. Turn the ignition to ON then back to OFF. c. Turn the ignition to ON then back to OFF. d. Remove the key from the ignition. 5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should cycle (automatically) indicating successful entry into programming mode. Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point. 6. Perform these steps within 40 seconds: a. Press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously for 1 second. b. Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons, press the lock button by itself and hold for 2 seconds. Within 3 seconds, the door locks should cycle ( LOCK then UNLOCK) once-- indicating successful programming. If the door locks don't cycle, or cycle twice. Repeat steps 6a and 6b--this remote has not been accepted. c. Repeat steps 6a and 6b for EACH transmitter that will operate the vehicle. Including any old transmitters. 7. Close the driver door. Hope this helps you, it did me greatly-- Good luck, NoliWan __________________ 2000 SR5 4Runner 4WD ____________________ TRD 2nd Gen. Supercharger / TRD Headers / TRD Cat Back Exhaust / TRD Trans.

Cycle the power locks 5 times. Does this mean lock/unlock 5 times? I am really unsure. Here is some history: Actually, I didnt buy a new remote. Mine stopped working. I have an 02 T4R. Last week I noticed the *chirp* sound wasnt working any more. Over the weekend... the Keyless Remote stopped working totally. So I radio shacked a new battery in the remote... but it still does not work. I tried these reprogramming instructions, but they do not work either. "Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should cycle (automatically)" This doesnt happen. So I am wondering if I am doing the cycle correctly ... Any Advice would be appreciated.

If you were doing this and the vehicle wasnt doing the automatic cycle thing, then there must be a problem with the computer and not the remote. quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I can't do the steps with out setting off the car alarm, specifically the close and open the drivers door step.
