The code actually has another character in front of it, most likely a P (Powertrain) code as they're most common, although it could also be a B (Body) or C (Chassis) code. So it's likely P1442 and it's description is Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected. That code is specific to Toyota vehicles, although it seems nearly identical to the generic code P0442. This error pertains to the emissions system in the car. You now have the choice of either taking the car to a qualified technician or you can try a few troubleshooting steps yourself. If you're not mechanically inclined, I would recommend you change the gas cap to a brand new Toyota one (not a cheap aftermarket one), reset the code and see if it comes back. If the code returns there are additional steps you can take. Take a look at this P0442 article for other ideas.

Hi there,

If manual window winder

Your driver's window glass may have come off the regulator mechanism.

If electric window control

The glass may have detached from the regulator or the regulator cable has unwound itself off the mechanism (ie tension during upward motion, but loose when motor stops winding).

Your driver's door panel will need to be removed to inspect your window regulator operation.

when was the last time you ha your oil and filter changed? Did you use 5w30 or 10w30 during the change? If you check your oil dipstick, is the oil a decent (brownish) color or is it jet black?
If you have had it changed recently, and used the wrong oil type (10w30 instead of 5w30 ... or whatever is listed in your user's manual) then you might have the wrong weight oil. This can cause hard starting, but would resolve itself as the engine heats up -- a 10w30 oil is thicker at room temperature than 5w30 ... but both have the same consistency at the normal running temperature of an engine. If you have not changed it recently (and have not checked your oil level) it might be REALLY dirty ... in which case the extra friction of the dirt in the oil can also cause a hard-starting issue which you might not notice while driving.
An oil that is too thick could also cause a clicking in your engine -- which would stop as the oil coated the engine parts properly. If you have the right oil, and it is not dirty ... you might have an issue with your oil pump getting weak. I would have that checked. I don't mean to harp on the oil system, but I have had engines do what you describe due to oil problems.
I doubt that your starter is having issues ... being that it Does start up and (I assume) even when the vehicle is having a hard time starting all the way up, the engine is still turning (or at least trying to). If you don't end up with NOTHING happening when you turn the key, it's probably not the starter.
It could be that you have dirty or worn spark plugs, but I don't think this would cause a disappearing click. Before you go spending a lot of money on repairs you might want to check these out. If none of this is working, your best bet is going to be to take the vehicle to a mechanic and have them look at it. If it is possible to leave the car for a few hours or overnight so it will have the same starting / clicking issue in front of the mechanic, that would be VERY helpful when he goes to diagnose the problem. Good luck!

Your security system needs reset. consult your manual or call the dealer for the specifics on your vehichle. They may reset after a while and you can try using your key FOB to turn alarm off after battery is connected.

You have to know what code is stored to fix the problem. Toyota's will generally display a Check Engine light, VSC and TRAC light all at the same time, even if it's a simple problem with an oxygen sensor (for example). You can disconnect the negative battery cable for a few minutes, even though you should a scan tool should be used, to clear out the code.
