SOURCE: stick auxiliary box lid

This is a known failure item. Take it to a dealer & have them replace it under warranty. I personally have changed 20 or so. The replacement boxes seem to have been upgraded, and do not display this issue any longer.

Where is power steering fluid on toyota sienna 2011 located
2011 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.5L V6Our research indicates that your vehicle has an electric power steering system ("EPS" or "EPAS"). These systems use an electric motor instead of a hydraulic system and therefore do not have any power steering fluid to leak. Electric power steering typically require less maintenance and are more fuel efficient.

Is oil pan "sump location" REAR or CENTER on Toyota Sienna 2010 XLE V6?

Usually Rear and Center sump locations are used in Street use (center location) rear use (racing). from what I can see with the stock replacement oil pans the one your looking at is either a higher capacity oil pan or one that can be used in racing as I don't see a configuration change in the stock model. if you are ordering from a reputable parts dealer I would call or email them just to be sure when placing your order.

the noise you can hear is the lock/opening actuater, have to strip out door panel and see if the actuater mechanism is intact, and operate as before and look to see what part is trying to move, it may just need lubricating but be prepared to have to have new lock actuator

I have 2011 Toyota sienna. When i go to speed 50 & above, The back door sign starts flashing. can Please let me know how can i fix. I went to the dealer but he said to go to the body work. He fixed it...

I think I can help. When you drive your car down the road, you are moving a lot of air, and especioally in a van or suv, you are creating a vacuum behind you. This is creating a suction that is attempting to pull your back lid open. Obviously, the door switch is so sensitive it is registering as "open" when you go fast. You need to adjust the door switch, or have someone ride in the rear ( at high speed) and check and see if the rear door is actually not sealing properly. ( Like if the car had been hit in the rear.)
Be blessed.

2005 Toyota Sienna XLE - Automatic sliding door not closing.

This may or may not work depending on exactly what is wrong with the door, I cant tell what is wrong without looking at it directly however:
You can try starting with all doors closed and unlocked, keys in hand disconnecting the battery and letting the vehicle sit for 2 min or so, then reconnect the battery. Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the on position but do not start the van. Next press the button to disable the power sliding door for the drivers side, then manually open the door fully, wait 5 seconds, then close it manually fully. Press button the button again to re-enable the power sliding door, then try to use it with the automatic feature either by pulling the handle or using your remote, this may or may not work depending on if the door has somehow become de-initialized (it should work now) however if something is broken inside the door closing mechanism or door closed/open sensors, the door will continue to malfunction.
