Since My Scion XA is Made by Toyota I figure that there can't be a Whole lot of Difference in Motors. Same 4 Cylinder Toyota Motor that they use in yours. Does not have a Tranny Dipstick or Place to fill it. Dealer Service Item Only. I know it sucks.

i HAD the same problem.... first check the fuse under the hood labeled 'dome' should be a 7.5A it is blown for sure... also if you are good with wiring and at working on cars look at the drivers side doo wiring (between the inside door jam and the drivers side floor... its the wiring that goes through the door to the cabin.... anyway you have to take off the door panel and remove a small cover on the floor of the drivers side.... now remove the two connectors that go to the wiring harness.... you should now be able to loosen the grommet and pull the wiring harness through the door via the speaker hole (you should have removed the speaker already) you now must inspect the wiring which is most likely frayed and/or broken now fix the wiring with some new wiring and crimp connectors and heat shrink your work.... should be good as new... have fun getting the wiring back through the door... it will be bigger due to the crimp on connectors etc..... i did a quick write up of this so i hope it is understandable

Don't just test fuses, but probe with multi meter for power.

Alternate check is to run fused wired direct from battery and see how that works

If the left side is hit with a car you might have damage to the cables that run in the floor channels that are below the door when the door is closed the plastic that the door is on when the door is closed. Suggest removing the plastic and checking the cables are not touching other exposed wires or the car body. If they are get insulation tape and wrap on exposed wires.

this is for acura but it cant hurt to try it...
Open hood ensure new battery is disconnected.
Open main fuse panel cover under hood and remove horn relay (so you don't have to listen to the horn).
Use the key to lock the drivers door.
Connect the positive battery terminal.
Connect the negative battery terminal (security system will now activate, hazards lights will flash and horn would be going off if the relay was not removed).
Use the key to unlock the drivers door.
Get in, close drivers door.
Use the key to start the engine.
Security system will deactivate.
Get out of vehicle, reinstall horn relay, replace fuse panel cover, close hood.

That means you need the Oxygen Sensor, Knock sensor Camshaft position Sensor is usually on the outside of the timing cover which is a good thing. . Bank one simply means you are in front of your engine and you would pull the wire from the Number one spark plug and that part of your engine is bank one. The opposite side is bank two.

I would have the ECM (Engine Control Module ) checked. So many sensors going bad at the same time is just not normal. It's something that only a professional can do . Sorry about that. But to replace all those sensors one at a time would cost you not only money but a serious amount of time.
