2012 Toyota 4Runner ProblemsKeyless entry stopped working
My keyless entry stopped working. The remotes have fresh batteries and I've already tried the reprogramming list or opening/closing etc. Ideas?
If the car will not start, the most likely problem is worn or corroded solenoid contacts in the starter. Usually, these parts can be replaced without purchasing a new starter.

2012 Toyota 4Runner RecallsAccessory Exhaust Tips Protude Creating Possible Burn Injury
The accessory exhaust tips installed by the Southeast Toyota Distributors may protrude from the rear and allow contact with people, possibly causing burning and injury. Dealers will install a redesigned exhaust tip that is smaller in diameter and more recessed behind the bumper free of charge to resolve the concern.
Vehicles that have had accessories added to the seats such as seat heaters, seat covers or DVD headrests may not have the occupant sensor system of the passenger seat calibrated properly. This can affect passenger air bag operation in a crash. Dealers will test the sensitivity of the occupant detection sensors and recalibrate them as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
