20 Most Recent 2006 Toyota 4Runner Questions & Answers

The last couple of times I have seen this complaint, the "Lock" button on the master (driver's door) switch had been depressed. Unlatching the lock button (pushing it again) solved the problem. On most cars, when the lock button is depressed, the windows can still be operated by the driver, but prevent the windows from being operated by the passengers. Toyota is different. If the lock button is depressed, nobody, including the driver can work the wndows.

What they are talking about is the cables that move the sunroof open and closed, these have plastic pieces that can break so I suspect that this is what the problem is. The reason that it's so expensive is that the headliner has to be removed and then the entire sunroof assembly so it can be taken apart and the cable assemblies that go into the guide rail can be replaced. It seems a little high at the dealer which is understandable, try checking around in your area for someone that can do the labor, the parts are around $400. You should be able to get someone that knows how to do this for around $800 or so labor.

It's probably just in the design between the two year models, check the cabin air filter behind the glove box these sometimes get clogged up and reduce fan air volume.

ahh, you meant hack? RIGHT.
not fix it.
let me guess, why must I?
lost all keys,
or the 1 and only 1 key owned is dead
IMMO angry lamp,
so then you ask how to hack it not fix it ,right>/?

then failed to scan it and see if its:
1: communications errors.
2: key bad.
3: key transponder bad.

you, cant. hack it.
one guy did, but you dont know how to hack
EPROMS do you. I do, but I'm not doing that here.

also you can call key shop
and some do house calls.
and they reprogram the key for you on the spot.
Call them and ask,
my local shop here in town does.

you fix cars i see
all this is just boring OLD HAT to all mechanics.
at least in USA, are you?

This code indicates a lean condition on bank one of the engine. Possible dirty/defective MAF sensor/vacuum leak/low fuel pressure on bank one/ defective 02 sensor. The best thing to do would be to monitor live scan data and see what may be causing this issue before tossing unneccessary parts at the vehicle

The drivers side seat does not fold forward, it will only go to vertical.

Just curious, does it blow faster at higher rpms and slows with lower rpms? Have battery-- battery cables-- charging system tested.

Of course there could be other issues? I'd have to do testing when issue is ongoing, as far as voltage and ground for the blower and the blower motor, itself. Try to be sure what is going on before replacing anything.

There is nothing to adjust on the rear because it is a solid axle, most dealers and alignment shops do a 4wheel alignment anyway and they don't charge less for a two wheel alignment. A 4wheel alignment also reveals any possible bent suspension components or frame misalignment..

well the blower work on HIGH>?
if the blower i dead on high , replace the fuse. called blower
if the fuse is good, then the blower is bad , the controls to it are bad
the FSM covers all the tests.
if not DIY person, take it in for service.
or look on alldata.com (online, almost FSM)

im going to.
i did and xxxxx

if radio and nav codes are not backed up , they will die, after battery pull.
the operator guide warns of this.
if driving a A/T slushpump autotranny, it will need driving sessions
to learn you car mass and your habits.

on some cars, (read the FSM) there needs to be idle recalibration
and throttle by wire recalibration, and,, and.... they get richer.
depends on engine, and country sold,,
my 2008 has 14 on board computers. keeping them all happy is a ROYAL PITA. (even with full FSM in hand all 1700 pages)
