Question about Toyota Highlander

2 Answers

There is a "rattling" noise behind the dashboard (cd player, radio). It doesn't happen when we are just idling or moving slowly. If it's the speedometer cable, it's not affecting the speedometer at all.

Our 09 developed a loud rattle up toward the windshield. Turned out to be the plastic "cowling" that the wipers sit in which runs the length of the engine compartment. I think some servicing requires the cowl's removal so maybe it wasn't reinstalled correctly. Open the hood and along the seam where this cowling attaches to metal trim below (via snap in plastic links), squeeze a thin bit of weather stripping. I actually used a couple of plastic hose nozzle washers in the gap as a test and the rattle disappeared!
Its a cheap and easy test in any case.

How does the display on my CD/radio work?


Sorry to hear the display is blank even though the cd radio appears to function. The display is usually an LCD with back panel lights that makes the characters visible. Most likely the small rice globes behind the panel are blown. Usually needs some sort of desoldering and resoldering to replace. If you can take the player out from the dashboard and take it to the local audio repair shop you will save quite a bit of money to get this fixed.

I am assuming your CD radio looks something like this.

Rattling noise when I press the gas pedal or when the vehicle is running idle.


Hi,
Likely an exhaust heat shield. When the SUV is cold - after sitting for 4+ hours - crawl under the vehicle and see if any of the shields are loose that cover the exhaust pipes. If they are you can use sheet metal screws screwed into the shield and against the exhaust pipeto 'wedge' the shield so it doesn't move.

I get E-01 error of my cd changer


The fault is actually inside the CD changer, when one disc is selected the changer moves the gearing inside to slot from one CD to the other.
While this operation is happening the selection arm jams !!
Then giving an error at the radio display..

To fix the problem, disconnect the CD changer from the trunk of the car,
take off the top plastic slide cover,
with a small screwdriver slowly move the gearing so that the CD disc holder will move back to the load - unload position.

Pop out the CD holder.

Replace unit, reconnect the optic and power lead, switch on radio and the unit will work again,

grease the moving parts with light lubricant

Good Luck

Rattling noise coming from my 2005 mazda 6's engine. it only happens when i drive slowly such as going through kfc drive through


Good evening.
If this is a tinny type of rattle and it only happens at certain RPM's I would look for a loose heat shield over the exhaust pipes. Have someone apply the throttle until the rattles begins and listen under the car with a long screwdriver or a yardstick. Use the screwdriver to push on the various shields surrounding the manifold and pipes until the rattle stops. then use a hose clamp or two to tighten them up.
Also I see a lot of catalytic converters that become loose internally and rattle around inside it.
The only cure for that is to replace the converter.
If this rattle is an internal engine noise you should have an experienced mechanics ears give you an opinion.

Thank you for using FixYa.

1994 Corolla rattles when idling and at low speeds.


It amazes me that they didn't at least address the rattling noise, seeing how they probably caused it. If it is just a belt, that's an easy fix. Did you stop at another shop & ask for a quick diagnosis?
Could be something as simple as a heat shield , or something. Doesn't hurt to have a second opinion, and shouldn't cost anything, or very little, then go back & tell them what the diagnosis was.

DASHBOARD


Emissionwiz is correct, this is just a matter of getting everything lined up.
Regarding the stuck CD, try this: Remove the radio from the dash. UNPLUG all of the connectors behind the radio. Wait for 1 minute. Then plug them all back in. See if the radio "comes back to life". I encounter this situation quite often, 9 time out of 10 I can bring the radio back on, and then eject the CD. Also note that Camry CD players really HATE "burnt" or "copied" CDs. These types of Cds stick in the player all of the time.
