SOURCE: Warning lights won't go off.

You need to have a code scanner hooked to the car to find out why the lights are on, if there is an auto zone or advanced auto near you, go there and ask them if they can hook one up, or call around to see who can do it.

SOURCE: How do I install alt. belt on 2005 scion xb?

I just looked at my '04 xB. It looks very straight forward.
loosen the bolt that holds the alternator to the bracket.
carefully slide the alt to the bottom. (Also be aware of the plug and wires on the alt.They should never hold the weight of the alternator. You dont want them breaking prematurely.)
Pull the belt off, remove the belt from the crank shaft pulley.

Do the reverse, and you will have replaced the belt.

Make sure to check the belt in about a week or so.
New belts will stretch over time. Make sure you keep the tension tight enough to work correctly, but not so tight that the alernator shaft is warped.
I usually place the new belt on both pulleys and give a good "medium" pull on the alt while tightening. Find the middle of the belt and squeeze them together, depending on the type and length of the belt, there should be about 1/4" of flex on both sides.

SOURCE: my scion xb will not start up. when i try to start

Yes, it could be. If it is the original, it is 5 years old.
Before I bought a new one though, I would remove the negative battery cable, then clean both battery terminals and the clamp that goes on them. With the battery negative still disconnected, you should trace both cables to their terminus, remove those and clean them too.
If that doesn't help, you can have your battery checked at any chain auto parts store. Their tester will tell you quickly if the battery will accept a charge and function as it should.
BTW: If you have a password protected stereo or alarm system, you will need that to get them working again.

SOURCE: my 2006 scion xb vsc,traction, and check engine

I had the same problem. The cause (at least on my box) was a bad charcoal canister and the valve going to it. These go bad on the boxes fairly often. If you "top off" your tank, the overflow spills down into the charcoal canister and it will not function properly. IE: Engine, Trac, and VSC lights come on. It doesnt hurt it to drive with a bad canister, but you will lose mileage and that light will be staring you in the face every time you drive. The parts are pricey, dealer only parts and the canister is about $400. I found a totalled xb with a good canister and nabbed it for $40.....solved my problem. Hope this helps!

No tai lights or dash lights in 2004 Scion xB fuses good no power at rear plugs. Brake and blinkers do work. So frustrated.


Did you look at a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in those circuit's ? The fuse is GOOD ? 10 amp tail lamp fuse is good , but is there Battery + voltage there ? With a volt meter or test light check for B+ voltage on both sides of the fuse . Both the dash and tail lights get B+ voltage from the head lamp switch . You can find a wiring diagram here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html How to Use Multimeter to Troubleshoot Common Problems

2006 Scion Xb - The battery light came on and all the lights slowly got dimmer until the car stalled - Any suggestions


How old is the battery? Most batteries, are good for about 5 years. If you get a battery from Walmart, that is not the wisest choice, they are second-hand / bottom of the barrel type batteries at Walmart and Kmart. Get a reputable brand like from Napa. That's where I would start. Check your doors, make sure there is nothing keeping a door open and your dome light on.
