2001 Toyota Highlander Problems

When changing the air filter, it is easy to knock off a hose on the air filter housing, which is part of the emission control system. If the vehicle is driven with this hose disconnected, the Check Engine Light will illuminate.

A problematic center airbag sensor can cause the airbag malfunction light to illuminate.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate because a component of the oxygen sensor stops working. As a result the engine computer is unable to determine the proper ratio of air to fuel for the engine. Replacing the failed oxygen sensor should correct this concern.

I've bought my Highlander new and it is the best and my favorite vehicle that I have ever owned (4 previous Hondas over the years).
