Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Fail safe mode & ABS

Can the fail safe mode be turned off on my 2006 Toyota 4Runner SR5? I took it to the dealership because it wouldn't go past 40-45mph and they said the air pump, relay, and valves need to be changed. In addition, the brake actuator wasn't working (the reason for the ABS light). Is this important or can you get rid of the ABS light by adding a new fuse?

Look under the hood where the ABS unit sits.(on drivers side)

Make sure the engine is NOT Running and the key is OFF. Also check that the parking brake is Not Engaged at this time.

First unplug the two wire connector on the ABS unit. IIRC the wire colors for this connector are Red and Black, and they are of a fairly thick gauge.

The ABS/Brake light will remain on at this time if you start the motor, so skip that and look for a second connector on the ABS unit. This one has multiple wires and are much thinner gauge than the first connector. **Unplug this connector. With key OFF, pump the brake pedal 10-15 times. Start the motor and there should be no ABS or Brake lights illuminated on the dash.

You just completely eliminated the ABS Unit from your braking system and will only have NON- ABS power brakes from now on. The ABS unit will only act as an extended brake fluid reservoir and will not influence braking an any way...you will have to pump the brakes yourself if needed.

On my personal vehicle...also a '94 S10, I went one step further and fabricated an ABS pump elimination kit that allowed me to physically remove the entire unit and tie the lines back into the system using a simple valve found on many domestic master cylinders. I may fab up some kits if there is any interest, but it's really not needed...I'm just anal about my vehicles.

**NOTE: Some GM ABS units have two additional plugs besides the two wire connector, if so just unplug them both.

SOURCE: Stability control fail Jaguar XJ8

this may sound crazy but what sort of fuel are you running? Try filling the car with premium 98 octane and run it - if you are running inferior grade or dirty fuel the throttle body sensors will register a differential in the burn/energy and throw a fault. The bad news is that a faulty throttle body will cause the same problem and cost a fortune to replace.

I encountered the same problem, my engine fail safe mode light came on and shut the car down. I took my car to my mechanic and he found the solution to the problem. The car needed a throttle body cleaning and the fuel filter needed to be replaced. After having my truck serviced my mileage increased from 14.6 mpg to 15.4 mpg

On a 2004 toyota 4runner my check engine light, VSC light and my Trac Off light all came on at the same time, what is most commonly the cause?


The VSC and Traction system are basically using the ABS to work. The most common issue is a failure of one of the wheel sensors for ABS. Would think the engine light will probably turn out to be for ABS failure code. Most auto parts stores, and some shops will read codes for no charge - so take it and see if the code does show as a failure in ABS system. Some code readers can not read the actual ABS computer to give you a detailed code of what is causing the issue - but if you can read detailed code it may lead you to exact issue.

Can I dsiable abs brakes 2002 4runner


You can remove the abs pump fuse & see what
happens

The question is why?

You have conventional brakes until a wheel slips

I would command the hcu unit open & then remove the fuse

When you go to inspection, you fail, as the ecu/pcm/ecm, etc
won't be ready,it will be looking to run a test on abs every time
you start the engine or turn key on

92 Toyota 4runner truck was running perfectly fine Later in the day went to start and the alarm just started going off and wouldn't turn off. Truck won't start even with keys turned in igniti


The alarm system somehow got activated , this is usually because the battery becomes discharged or disconnected try doing this:
Remove the key from the ignition
disconnect the negative battery terminal
put the key back in and turn to ON
exit the truck and leave door open
reconnect the battery terminal
get in and leave door open, if the alarm horn stays off it should start.

4 wheel drive on 2007 4 Runner will not engage


There are several actuators on a 4thGen 4Runner. They are expensive to replace. The 4WD high and low and difflock MUST be exercised or the actuators will get gummed up and not operate. A good rule is to run the 4WD (all modes) for a while every month.
If they fail, they have to be replaced. The front actuator at a dealership may cost $700 to $800. The actuator on the transfer case that switches it to 4-Low could be as much as $2500 as the whole transfer case has to be taken out and rebuilt.
I *strongly* suggest having this done by a mechanic that knows what they're doing with 4Runers.
You've probably already found this out.

I have a toyota 2004 4runner and the abs is not working. Toyota dealer ask me $3,000.00 for the repair. He said i need to change all of the abs systems. One mechanic said that I need only the motor....


Dealerships can be tricky when it comes to parts.

1st, i would get more than 1 opinion on the ABS. The brakes on the 4th generation 4runners (2003-2009 models) and even the NEW models had one nortotious problem, and that's the brake calipers. They tend to "freeze up" as salt, dirt and grime can build up on the inside of the pistons that push the pads against the rotor to stop the car.

2nd, see if the dealership does or doesnt provide warrantee's on parts that they dont provide. Some places do, but most dont.

3rd, call around to 3-4 of the Toyota dealerships around you. Get quotes for the work and see who has the best deal. Then, call around and see if the others will beat the price.

4th, here's a popular new OEM parts site a lot of 4runner owners frequent:

Thanks __________________ RAV Report this post to a moderator | IP: Logged 12-31-2004 02:11 AM NoliWan Member Registered: Dec 2004 Location: San Jose, CA Posts: 34 Hey RAV, I got your PM-- Here are the instructions for programming the 99-02 4Runner Keyless Entry factory remotes: 1. Start with the following conditions: you are in the vehicle a. Key is out of the ignition b. Drive door is open ( all other doors are closed) c. Driver door is unlocked (other door locks don't matter) 2. Insert the key into the ignition (don't turn it) and pull it out. 3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds: a. Cycle the power locks 5 times. Use an even pace and try to go relatively fast. b. Close, then open the drivers door. 4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds: a. Cycle the power locks 5 times (same as before). b. Turn the ignition to ON then back to OFF. c. Turn the ignition to ON then back to OFF. d. Remove the key from the ignition. 5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should cycle (automatically) indicating successful entry into programming mode. Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point. 6. Perform these steps within 40 seconds: a. Press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously for 1 second. b. Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons, press the lock button by itself and hold for 2 seconds. Within 3 seconds, the door locks should cycle ( LOCK then UNLOCK) once-- indicating successful programming. If the door locks don't cycle, or cycle twice. Repeat steps 6a and 6b--this remote has not been accepted. c. Repeat steps 6a and 6b for EACH transmitter that will operate the vehicle. Including any old transmitters. 7. Close the driver door.
