Did you buy this from a dealer? if so, you should have taken it back ASAP I dont know why you didnt have the Toyota Dealer fix the car, now your in the middle of a mess, getting 2 shops involved, and the car still has a problem. When you bought the car, whoever you bought it from, knew there was a problem, cleared the code and it took a while for the check engine light to come back on. So now you will just have to pay someont to fix the car. The trans shop told you it needed a converter and solenoid, the problem is still there, so make it their problem. I think you need someone who knows toyota . theres no recall that I know of. Recalls are free, anyhow. . ecm is warranteed 8 years or 80k miles. Have the dealer check it out. Have them Check Bulletin TC008-04 and T-SB-0378-08
Unfortunately there i no unlocking code that will work across the range and if there was toyota would never give it out, sometimes if you go to normal mechanic if they ring the dealer and give them the vin number toyota can give it out over the phone.
When the computer detects certain faults it will set the check engine light on along with the other lights you've explained. I've seen this on many toyota SUV's. Usually the codes set are oxygen sensor related. There really is no relation between the oxygen sensors and the traction control system but for some reason it disables it and sets the warning lights on. Have the computer scanned for codes at a shop or at a parts store such as autozone for free.
Try your local Autozone or Advance Auto Parts, it usually is sold there and it would say on the plastic or label for what year to what year is that fitment on it but to be honest there was one time that I bought one that didn't fit the car I was installing a radio hope so is not your case that its electric system has not been modified .....
give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your SUV wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.
The clock unit is just defective and needs replaced. It is pretty common on these 3rd gen (96-02 Runners) -they are not cheap so many folks have just given up on them. T4R.org is a good place to look for one or a local junk yard if you need to replace it. While you have the dash apart for the clock then ...
Your radio issue is likely in the unit itself-and replacing the radio head unit with a more modern unit would likely be around the same cost as any fix of the old unit. Since many car stereo outlets install for free your only limitation is how much you choose to spend or the features needed. I seriously doubt Toyota can fix your light in the old stereo for any less than a new radio itself....but of course call the dealership and ask to be sure before you go spending big money....
