Question about 2004 Toyota Sequoia
We bought a used 2004 Toyota Sequoia. When the front doors open, the interior lights do not come on auutomatically. They work when switched on, but we can't find a way to have them come on automatically when the door opens. Did that year/model have that feature?

The ground circuit for the driver side door switch is compromised, or the door switch is bad. Try this: Remove the black rubber cover from the door swich. Using a 10 millimeter wrench or socket, loosen & tighten the switch retention bolt. See if the dome light flickers. If so, the ground on the switch is bad, & just needs cleaned up. If not, remove the switch, and touch the wire behind the switch to the body,or the bolt hole. If the dome light lights, you need a door switch. Your problem is entirely in the door switch/ground/wiring. Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Dig out the broken bits of door handle, then on the right side insert a
flat head screwdriver diagonally up and fish around for the release
Push up on the screwdriver handle to manipulate the release lever down and your tailgate will open.
Remove the interior panels by unbolting the 10mm bolt behind the strap and pulling off the interior pieces held on by plastic pop fasteners.
Remove the 10mm bolts around the perimeter of the interior cover plate and let it hang by the harness.
Remove the license plate.
Remove the license plate trim panel (multiple push fasteners from behind and a few 10mm around the lock)
Replace the handle.

The problem is in the sunvisor light. You will have to take the light assembly off and you will find wires have become disconnected.

You may find that this porcess is with your GARAGE DOOR opener and not the car. Rolling code technology units require that you press a button on your opener motor, (get a ladder and a light, get up there and read it, have an assistant in the car to press). what you do is press the button on the opener, to accept input signals, then you press the button in the car. Usually you get a flash on the opener's lights, then that sender (car) is accepted.
