Question about 2005 Toyota Matrix

1 Answer

TOYOTA MATRIX PROBLEM

I just bought a 2005 Matrix 4wd automatic that has been in a previous accident but my machanic said it checked out clean however in the past 24hrs drivers side airbag light has suddenly turned on and stayed on and I hear a new high pitched tick coming from the drivers side near the front wheel but only when i'm going slow (w/ no pattern or obvious cause). *Question w/ the airbag: I realize w/ a previous accident there could have been deployment but why wouldn't the airbag light be on before now and what cheap but effective fix is available if it isn't deployed?
*Question w/ the tick: Could this possibly be from something as simple as the 4wd adjusting itself, can they do that even, and should I be able to hear it?
What suggestions might you have?

Airbag: with an OBD II reader, check the status of the airbag and reset it. If it continues to turn on, there is a defect in the replacement airbag.

Whine: bushings, bearing on the wheel. A common wear item in FWD cars. Need to be serviced.

Tick: a common wear item is a loose or worn bushing on the suspension. Not critical but annoying. Was a service item released as a Technical Service Bulletin.

2005 toyota matrix running lights don't work


Hi Kolby, I guess you've checked the fuses? They are normally inside the cabin and behind the small locker for licences and small change. If the instrument panel lights are also defective that is where I suggest you look. If that is not the problem they are operated via a relay, which may have become defective. Regards 'John
