Question about Cars & Trucks
There should be sensor that push in on all your doors. Similar to a drier door there should be a switch. I would start there seeing if they are making contact with the door. It may be out of allignment

SOURCE: Changing clutch in 05 Scion xB
For $20 US you can access the Chilton service manual here:
I personally prefer hard-copy and have either Haynes or Chilton for each of our vehicles. One or the other (probably Chilton - Haynes doesn't yet list the Scion line) will be found in just about any auto parts store and cost between ~$17-$30 US. The two lines are owned both by Chilton and I wouldn't be without one or the other. They are both based on a complete rebuild and have info on anything you can do at home and more.

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.

To reset your maintenance reminder system (even if the light hasn't
come on yet), you'll need to turn your key to on (but don't start!) and
make sure your odometer is on TRIP A. Then key off. Press and hold the
Odometer/Trip button. While holding down on the button, key the
ignition to on (Don't start the engine!) The display panel will count
down from "------" to "-"Continue pressing the button until the Trip A
is displayed. After this step, you are done.
Here can find one video about this procedure: Youtube vj7kK5i2tPc
I hope helps with this (remembe rated this help) Good luck.

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!
