Question about 2008 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Red flashing light under passenger airbag sign.

I've rented a 2008 toyota 4runner from Alamo and have driven from Chicago to Lafayette, Indiana and have just noticed a red intermitent light flashing under the Passenger Airbag sign on the dashboard when I switch off the ignition. I haven't noticed it before could you give an idea of what might be the problem - I haven't a handbook and I have phoned Almo and they said I shouldn't worry?!
Many thanks for any help you can give me

The flashing red light that looks like a car is the "Security Indicator". This flashes when the vehicle is switched off, to alert potential theives that the 4Runner has an Anti-Theft system installed. Do not worry about it, the flashing is quite normal, and the bulb is really a Diode, and it will not drain the battery.
I hope this has answered your question.

Remote Start on 2008 Toyota 4Runner will not start truck

Is it a Toyota remote start, or an aftermarket remote start? If it is a Toyota remote start, make sure the hood and doors are all closed. press lock twice, then press lock a 3rd time and hold it for 3 or 4 seconds. It then should beep once, and a few seconds later start up. OR the lights will flass once, twice, or etc. Usually this means there's something wrong and the number of flashes is a diagnostic code of sorts. If this is the case, take it in to your dealer for further assistance. This part should be covered under the 3/36000 warranty.

If it is an aftermarket system, it will probably be a similar situation. It may be a misadjusted hood pinswitch, or even some blatent mistake the installer made installing it.

Airbag alarm

This should be for the passenger side airbag. If an adult is sitting in the passenger side seat and there is a light that says airbag off then you have a problem either with the passenger side airbag or with the passenger side seat detector. Start up the car and sit in the passenger seat, buckle the seat belt and make sure the light now says airbag on. If this does not happen take car to dealer. Dealers have correct computers to enter the airbag modules to read and diagnose the fault code.
