Does the fuel gauge still work correctly? The short answer is that you should not routinely go below about 1/4 tank anyway, because the fuel pump is in the bottom of the gas tank and is cooled by the gas. When you get below three gallons or so (or 10 liters), the fuel pump runs hotter than it should, and if you do this a lot, you will seriously shorten the life of the pump. And that's an expensive repair.

Generally the light is designed to come on when you only have about one gallon (4 liters) remaining, and that is too low to cool the pump properly. So if you fill up when you should, you don't need to worry about this.

Both my tail lights are not working on my 2008 toyota Sienna. Brake lights work fine, just the running lights are out.


Your tail light/license plate light fuse is blown. Replace that fuse and you will have your running lights once again.

I changed rims and tires on my 2008 toyota sienna and tire pressure warn ing light came on followed by abs,traction control,and check engne, lights. what could cause this to happen? does anybody know how...


Sounds like they did not swap over your tire pressure monitoring sensors. They probably just used regular rubber valve stems. I would call and ask whoever put them on.

TOYOTA SIENNA MAINT REQD LITE CAME ON AFTER SCHEDULE MAINTANANCE


If the dealer/mechanic did the service early the light will come on when service is DUE. Go back to him and have it turned off. Search the web someone may have the procedure posted. Usually simple. Google "Toyota service light reset" or "Toyota Maintence light reset" Try this one
  1. With the car started (ignition on), set the LCD odometer readout to total mileage (not trip A or B).
  2. Turn the car off (ignition key to the OFF position).
  3. Push in AND HOLD the button/knob that switches the odometer
  4. Turn key to ON position without starting the car. You will notice the maintenance light blink and go out.
  5. Release the odometer button/knob.
  6. Turn key to OFF position.
  7. That's it! The "MAINT REQD" light has been reset to warn you to change your oil in another 5,000 or 7,500 miles or so.

Dashboard warning lights.


The warning light that looks like a pot or kettle with arrows is the "Low tire pressure warning light*" I found the answer on the Toyota web site by registering, logging in, entering my model and searching the owners manuals for warning lights.

If it's the ABS module, contact www.modulemaster.com and have them rebuild it - it's far cheaper (a couple hundred bucks) and they do a great job.
