Did you change the coolant recently?

An air pocket many be trapped on the top of the coolant sensor.

Try to locate a small air purge bolt near the coolant temp sensor.

If you can not find it then just back off the sensor and let some coolant to come out.

Please have container and shop towel to catch the coolant.

The goal is to purge the air pocket.

Please make sure it is level and engine is cold when you do this procedure.

First Of all you have new light bulbs (click here Aliexpress Homepage for cheapest prices if you don't have one already)
The first two steps are to open the rear cargo lift gate and then locate the square plastic access panel on the underside of the lift gate.Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver into the notch at the top edge of the panel and gently pry it out. Set the access panel aside in a safe place.
Rotate the light grey plastic license plate light bulb socket 1/4 turn counter clockwise and pull it straight out of the housing.Pull the old light bulb straight out of the socket and push in a new 2825 bulb.
You may also any other miniature wedge base bulb such as # 168, W5W, 194 or a compatible LED unit.
Tip - If you are installing LED bulbs and they don't work at first, try pulling it out, rotating it 180 degrees and pushing it back into the socket. Some LED bulbs are polarized and will only work when installed in the correct orientation.
Insert the socket back into the rear of the reverse light housing and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.
nsert the bottom edge of the access panel in first and then gently snap the top edge into place.Test the new license plate light bulbs by turning on the headlights.

Automatic Transmission
The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is located on the right side of the transmission near the output shaft.

Hardly the fuel pump if the engine isn't even turning over. If there is no immobiliser the fault is likely starter/battery/starter switch related.

I have this same problem, and I removed the interior door fascia to examine the cause.
As mentioned, the moving, plastic part of the door handle has a recess that houses the return spring. Under stress (under too little stress, if you ask me), part of that plastic that surrounds the spring ruptures (tears), and the spring can no longer exert sufficient force to get the handle to retract flush against the car.
There is no way to fic that plastic part--you have to replace the entire handle. Searching for "Toyota Echo Door Handle" will find you a number of on-line sites that sell BLACK handles for under $7.00! The dealer wants something like $50-$70 for an OEM part, with the right color.
I have the service manual, and replacing these things is a *****! You have to use a TORX bit to remove the actual latch in the door, to get it out of the way.
There isn't actually any fixed linkage between the handle and the interior latch mechanism. When you pull the handle up enough, a plastic cam on the handle strikes a metal lever within the car door, forcing the latch to release the steel hoop. So once you can ACCESS the handle, swapping it out looks straightforward. The problem is, accessing it is a pain. Make sure you have a magnetic grabber handy for the hardware!
I have yet to find a cheap source for SILVER handles on the Internet (none of the Internet Junkyards have responded).

I would not call that hooked up. You might as well take that bic lighter and go ahead and set the truck on fire.

have a brake mechanic check out the brake booster for a leak. If there is a leak then there will be an extreme lean air/fuel ratio mix that will stall the engine
