Question about 2001 Toyota Highlander

1 Answer

My driver side brake lights are not working on my 2001 Toyota Highlander but the parking lights do...connection is only good on one out of 3 on both lights...changed bulbs and switched sockets so I know thats not the problem. Was told by another expert to remove and replace lamps due to connectors not connecting. Does this sound correct? I will need to do the repairs myself so how do I remove the lamps?

Have you probed the wiring to the bulbs to see if there is 12 volts makeing it out? Go from the switch out and check until you locate whwere the circuit is lost.

SOURCE: driver side wiper wont work

One side does not work? Can you move the arm with your hands? If so, look for a loose nut that holds the wiper arm on. Remove the plastic trim on the wiper arm base, and tighten the 12 millimeter bolt. Please advise if this helps.

SOURCE: How do I replace the Rear Brake light bulb of 2001 Toyota Sienna?

I have a 2001 Sienna and have had to replace most of my tail light bulbs.

The bulbs that are mounted in the fender (wrap arounds) have acess panels in the van's interior that easily pop out and expose the back of the light assembly.

However, the bulbs that are found in the lift gate are a different matter. You have to remove the whole interior panel to the lift gate to expose the light assemblies. Go to your auto parts store and get a tool to help pop out the plastic retainers from the lift gates metal frame. Don't force the retainers out. Go slowly and gently so that you don't damage the interior panel. If you are really gentle you might even get to reuse the retainers.

Good luck!

Lok in the trunk on the left side, behind the carpet for a small plastic box with a bunch of wires going to it. Look to see if there is brake light powe coming in with the pedal depressed. If so, and no power is coming out, you need to order and replace the "taillamp failure sensor".

How do i take 2003 highlander out of park when the engine doesn't start?


Hi! If you turn on the ignition and depress the brake pedal, the shifter should move whether the engine is started or not. If it does not release, have someone check to see if the brake lights work. If the brake lights do not work, you will likely not be able to move the shifter. If they do not, check the STOP fuse and see if it is blown. If you have NO power anywhere (no dash lights, etc) you can remove the small cover near the shifter (usually about10mm square) and depress the white button underneath. The shifter should come out of park at that point.

Having trouble removing rear disc brake rotor fron


This vehical has drum styal park brake shoes on the inside of the brake rotor so make sure the park brake isn't set and you can turn the rotor. If you can't turn the rotor you will have to look into this first if the park brake is set or sticking you won't get the rotor off if thats ok try spray with penting oil helps a little. I use a 4 or 5 lb sluge hammer and hit the rotor kinds close to the wheel studs about 5 times then hit the outer edge from the back side also works on the outerside. Don't be afread to hit hard I never broke one.

2002 Toyota highlander passenger brake light not working


RE: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2.4cyl. 4X4 Base Model

I am a Certified Technician and have basic knowledge with electronics in electrical wiring. I searched the web and discovered this is a common problem.

I fixed the problem and it was a simple procedure... The problem is with the reverse light socket at the side with no brake light. This socket functions as a hub to direct current to the brake bulbs.

Remove reverse light socket and re-seat bulb. Check for loose or broken prongs. Replace if necessary.

Swap the reverse socket with the other side.

2001 Toyota Highlander Windsheld wiper assebly problem


First check to see if the nut that holds your wiper to the shaft came loose. If it did, just tighten it. If it didn't , you'll have to look in through the access cover. Usually just a screen like cover at the bottom of your windshield. I'm not sure what the setup is on them, but most vehicles, this cover is just held on by screws. Remove your wiper/ wipers if necessary, remove the cover, and look inside. There should be a linkage bar that connects to your wiper motor. It may have come off, or be stripped. I'm sure you'll figure it out once you get that far. Good luck.

No brake light one side


It is likely that the bulb is just out as the left and right brake lights would be on the same circuit. Unless there is a strange wiring issue simply replacing the bulbs should correct your problem.
