Get the codes read asap. This is an indication of a problem. It could be a bad speed sensor, torque convertor, etc but driving it like this can cause more damage and money quickly. The computer is not letting the transmission shift into overdrive for some reason. Of course this affects your fuel consumption negatively as well.

My dash is ticking and the dome and door lights are flashing; what could be wrong?


the ticking noise will be from a faulty relay and will not be covered by codes. At best you will have to locate the clicking relay and replace it . IT will have something to do with the interior lights ,door switches and may be the light control module.

Check engine light comes on...flashes sometimes. engine misses periodically.


Take it to a repair shop, any time
you get check lights on the dash

You have trouble codes set and vehicle
system problems, that need to be resolved

Don't continue to keep driving it that way

When you press the shift on the fly button s on the dash for 4 wheel drive the light keeps flashing but after 2 or 3 flashes it is suppose to stop. It seem like the 4 wheel drive isn't fully engaging.


If the light is continuing to flash the 4X4 is not engaged, most likely the motor that engages it on the transfer case is either stuck or defective.

Flashing light shows a car and a keyh inside


Thank You Very Much for The Maintenance Required Light Info, as far as the flashing car w the key inside. I'm not sure what key we have? When we bought it it only came with one key so we tried to make a duplicate, which ended up not working because we later found out it needs a chip (or probably what I hear as the smart key?) If the light is supposed to be on (and normal) why does it need reset?

The Maint Reqd light blinks after 4,500 miles, and stays ON continuously after 5,000 miles. This is to remind you that you need an oil change. Give the info from you about your key, you do not have a smart key. You have a transponder key. Off topic, but, FYI, a Toyota dealer can program a transponder key for you.
Back to the Maint Reqd light. Here is how you reset it:
Turn the key on.
Make sure that the odometer reads "ODO", and displays the total mileage traveled...If it displays trip a or trip b, push the black button by the odometer to make the display read ODO.
Turn the key off.
Press and HOLD the black trip reset button until advised to release it.
Turn the key ON. (keep holding th reset button down)
Observe the odometer display.
you will see 5 dashes, 4 dashes, 3 dashes, 2 dashes, 11 dash, followed by five zeros, and the total mileage you started with will re-display.
Release the button.
Turn the key off.

Regarding the flashing light with the car & the key: This is the indicator to show potential theives thatyou vehicle has a sophosticated security system, and it CAN NOT be started by "hot-wiring" it. The flashing light is normal, and consumes no battery power. I hope that this helps you understand these two items better. Thanks for choosing FixYA, and the graciousness of a FixYa rating for my solution to you would be greatly appreciated. Glad to be of assistance; please feel free to call upon me anytime. Have a great day.
