Question about 2008 Toyota Highlander
I recently had the differential repaired on my 2008 Highlander. Immediately afterward I noticed that it was harder to shift the auto transmission into "drive". I can get into drive, but I have to give the shifter an extra nudge to get it into drive. Now I am being told that the shifting problem is being caused by a lengthening of the auto transmission cable, and that this is unrelated to the differential repair. All I know is that the shifter was working fine before the differential repair and now it isn't. Can a differential repair adversely affect an auto transmission cable?
I AM A AUTO REPAIR MECHANIC NEVER SEEN THAT HAPPEND TO MY EXPERIENCE NO I DONT THINK THAT WOULD COUSE IT BE HARD TO SHIFT IN TO GEAR DONT SEE A REASON FOR THEM TO MESS WITH SHIFT CABLE TO FIX REAR END NOW BEST THING TO DO TAKE TO DIFFRENT SHOP AND GET A SECOND OPINION SEE IF WHAT SHOP IS TELLING YOU IS TRUE THAT CABLE IS BAD LET ME KNOW IF NEED MORE HELP THAT WHY IM HEER FOR VIC

-You never know. If the repair man disconnect the cable
before work on and reconnect it but not on good position. it will cause that. This can be adjust.

the overdrive button on your automatic transmission is for cruising on the highway basically like having another gear for better economy careful not to use it when your not on the highway because lugging the car in overdrive when its not needed will cause higher fuel consumption other than that you should have no problems just get out on the highway and push and away you go

I took my 05 matrix in to the dealership today because my srs airbag light had been coming on and off for the past month. After the dealership tried charging me $90.00 to diagnose the airbag problem(which i refused to pay and won) they gave me obd code B1660. I googled this code and came up with a website matrixowners.com(this site for some reason doesn't open) but on the preview it does show. "They found code B1660 CK SYSTEM and found a bad passenger air bag indicator which is part of the clock assembly. They want 3 bills plus labor for the clock. ..." my only conclusion is that I just figured out why my clock has been coming in and out for the past year or so. I suggest if you have this clock problem you should check your air bag system and don't pay the fee to diagnose the air bag system. Your car should not have a malfunction if the air bag system if it has never been involved in an accident or modified. It is a safety issue and the air bag system should have a lifetime warranty.

This is like a check engine light for your transmission. Something is slipping or out of its values. Get it checked out with a code reader.
