Try the truly wireless QuickVu(TM) Wireless Backup Camera. The camera has no (zero) wires, so it installs simply. The receiver and monitor mount easily on the dash, or if you have an in-dash screen with an RCA input, simply run a cable from the receiver to the screen. Buy direct from the manufacturer!

take a look at www.strutmasters.com for replacement suspension kits for that vehicle. it is going to be expensive to swap it in, but once you have that stuff taken out you won't have to fix it again and again and again.

What is the inquiry / problem

The hydraulic system that operates your brakes will not work if any air has gotten into it. Check your resevoir , if it is still full , then I would guess that the brake Master Cylinder is worn out.
The system can be refilled , and the air bled out of all the lines , however , if there is a leak in the system or the master cylinder is bad your problem will not be solved.

1. Remove the battery wires and thoroughly clean all connections with a wire brush, that may take care of the problem.
2. If it doesn't, check to see if the charging system is good. You will need a digital voltmeter for this. To check the charging system, place one lead on the positive terminal, and another on the negative, with the engine running and lights off. You should get at least 14 volts. (You may need to have a helper accelerate slightly to get the 14 volts.) If not, the charging system is bad. Take the alternator off, and have the auto parts store test it before buying a new one.

This is the anti theft function working as it should. Your husband needed to override it with the key. The command told the car to lock down. Because the key was not in the car the anti theft set off the alarm and locked down the engine as well.
This is exactly what you would want the car to do if you left it locked on the street with your windows down while shopping. Otherwise someone could reach in the window, unlock the door, slide in and start hot wiring the car.
These lock functions are programmable and can be changed at the dealership.

Pull the wheels off the back of the car. remove the rubber plug on the rotor hub and rotate the rotor to where the hole is on the bottom and look in there. you should be able to see a sprocket. take a long flathead screwdriver and move it up or down until the rotor does not freely move. then turn it two times in the opposite direction. do this for both sides then you should be good to go! good luck!

Put the car on a level ground, with the transmission in PARK. Lossen the nuts of the tire to change. Chuck back-tires if changing front, or chuck front-tires if changing back-tires. Jack up the car enough to raise the concerned tire off the ground. Remove nuts, and pull out the tire. Put in spare tire.
Hand tighten the nuts a considerable, but you might use the wrench to tighten a bit because this is a big/heavy car. Lower the car, and again tighten the nuts securely in a diagonal pattern with the wrench- two grunts used to be the rule of the thumb.

More than likely the starter contacts or solenoid are going bad which explains the intermittent staring problem. You can take out the starter and see if you can replace the contacts or replace the starter entirely. Since this is a starter problem a diagnostic scanner will not be able to pin point the problem. I would recommend replacing the starter altogether. A rebuilt or used one can cost appr. $300 and another $400 labor unless you can DIY.

Perform steps 1-3 first to inspect whether you have the access doors or not before ordering filters!!!

Did this little project this evening. Figured I'd write it up.

5 Easy steps:

1. Remove glove box door by removing both screws at the bottom of the door.

2. First pop the the little flap with a fuse/relay out of the black plastic shield in the upper portion of the glove box opening. Next push it back behind the shield through the opening. Next remove the 3 screws holding the shield in place. Don't pull this shield out yet!! Read step 3 first.

3. Gently pull the shield out. Be careful because the glove box light is still plugged into this part. It is located on the right side of the shield. Once it is pulled out slightly, unplug the bulb from the harness and now you can fully remove the part.

4. Now you can see the vertical cover where the air filters reside. The cover is about 5 inches tall and about 1 inch wide. It has 2 tabs on the upper portion of the cover. Squeeze these tabs towards each other and pull the cover off.

5. The filters are now exposed. They are stacked on top of each other. Pull the first filter out then lift the next filter up and pull out. Put new filters back in and reverse the procedure.

Parts needed:
2 Cabin air filters (Toyota PN 88568-60010 if you drop CDan a pm)
1 Phillips screw driver

Time needed:
No more than 15 minutes

There is a plastic tab that a screw goes through. Into the top corner of the headlight, closest to the front marker light. If the screw and or tab is missing, it was broken off at some point. There are three points on the backside of the marker light lens. That hold and secure the fixture. With firm pressure you must pull the marker light lens straight forward, out of its fixed position. Plastic trim removal tools make removal easier. You can pry on the rear edge of the lens without damaging the paint on the fender or the lens itself. I could not find a video for your specific model but I found a similar model with the same removal procedure.
