There is a reason flooded vehicles are always a total. The ECU is likely toast. Replacing that may or may not get it going. If it does, it is only a matter of time before something else fails. You will be chasing electrical problems on this vehicle until the day you sell it or push it over a cliff.

It sounds like the carb. float is set to high and /or the needle and seat has some dirt in it allowing to much fuel inside the carb.. This will allow to much fuel into the engine.It seems the carb could use a rebuild and dont forget to replace your fuel filter.I hope this helps.

I would say you have either a bad seal on the windshield or the seal on the passenger door opening.

SOURCE: In my 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado there is a

That is to show that the alarm system immobilisor is on. Shut everything off, close all the doors,windows etc. Lock the car. Then open the car using the remote handset or key and try to start the engine, if it still does not start , then you may have to take it to the dealer to check and reprogramme the system. BTW, did you disconnect the battery prior to this fault ? this would explain why the system is immobilised. Hope that helps

Anti lock brakes are disabled. you need to have the car scanned to see which ABS sensor is causing the problem. you can check all the wheels and see if the abs wire going to one of the sensors was ripped out by road debris or ice chunks. you have to look behind each wheel to do this. easier with the wheels off, just follow the wiring and inspect for problems.

SOURCE: Tire pressure monitoring light on my 2008 Toyota highlander is displayed on dashboard

First make sure all tires including the spare have 35 psi, if that is the only problem the light will go off, there may be a reset switch on the lower part of the dash, it says "set" on it, push the button and hold it in, turn the key on and wait for the light to flash three times, release the button, if the light comes back on there is a problem with the system, possibly one of the sensors is not sending a signal, this will require going to a toyota dealer to correct.

Where is the location of the main computer for the 2008 4 runner

Are you saying the car was in a flood or immersed in salt water? If it was how high did the water get? First pull the spark plugs and drain the oils out. Vacuum out the car, put Drizaires in the interior. Do not try to start it. If you do you will short out the computers. All electrical needs to be cleaned and dried. Flood vehicles are a pain but can be fixed. Lots of work, though.
I have dealt with flood vehicles quite a bit and the best surviours are the older non computerized ones. I have limited sucess with the computered ones.
Hope this helps;

Red flashing light under passenger airbag sign.

The flashing red light that looks like a car is the "Security Indicator". This flashes when the vehicle is switched off, to alert potential theives that the 4Runner has an Anti-Theft system installed. Do not worry about it, the flashing is quite normal, and the bulb is really a Diode, and it will not drain the battery.
I hope this has answered your question.
Thanks for choosing FixYa to anser your question.
