Question about 2000 Toyota Sienna
Posted by Anonymous on
Not a fix, but it is simple to just buckle up even when there is no passenger - so you do not burn out the light or hear that annoying alert "ding".

Mine and a friend's 2000 Sienna have the same issue. The only way I've found is to cover the light with a sticker. It's not a fix, but it stops the distraction while driving. Good luck, and post back if you find a better way!

Ijust did the spark plugs and believe me the front ones are piece of cake, but the rear ones, let me tell you, if you know about mechanics, go for it. There is alot of stuff to remove, including the intake plenum, and those spark plug wires casing that is another story. My best advise is if you have a couple of hundred dollars, that is your best choice. As far as the timing belt goes, pay a car shop, there is probably twice or three times more work involved than changing the spark plugs. siennas were designed to be worked on once or twice every five years (major work of course).
I hope this doesn't dissapoint you
Good luck mate

These seats are hard to get in and out, especially if the receiver hook on the floor has any obstruction; so first thing is to clear out anything that may be interfering with the seat from properly seating in the front hooks.
This fix applies to seats that are stuck and won't come out as well as seats that won't go back in.
Each seat has two levers on their back, marked; one for 'tumble' and the other for remove. Problem is, if you press the 'tumble' lever when the seat is out it may not let you replace the seat without first holding BOTH levers up while pushing the seat back into place, then pushing the seat DOWNWARD to reset the mechanism for tumble. Then, push the seat down so that the locking mechanism for tumble (a black lever under and on the drivers side of the seat).
If the receiver hooks are clear and the seat retainer mechanism is properly set you will be able to push the seat in and press down on the back of the seat and hear a very satisfying thunk that lets you know the seat is properly locked in.
These seats can handle quite a bit of shoving and jamming, and you may just have to work it hard to get them back into place.

The problem is in the sunvisor light. You will have to take the light assembly off and you will find wires have become disconnected.

Try this.....Find the latch on the door, stick your finger in the hole, lift up and pull the door handle at the same time, the inside latch mechanism should go up, then try the door again. It would be nice if that's all it was huh? Sometimes they stick when they get too cold. If this works for you....spray it with some WD-40 or graphite. Hope this worked for you. Cheaper than the 2000.00 motor!

2004 Toyota Sienna- Driver's seat belt jammed and twisted. Dealership can not fix. Want me to replace the whole seat belt device for $500! There are two other cases filed with the NHTSA.gov.
Maybe this should be a safety recall!
