2006 Toyota Land Cruiser Problems

Failed Electrical Junction Block May Cause Power Windows and Mirrors to Stop Working

The power windows and mirrors stop working because of a problem with an electrical junction block—where power from the battery is distributed to that system.

Check Engine Light Due to EVAP System Fault

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an evaporative emission (EVAP) system fault. Our technicians tell us these EVAP system faults can be difficult to diagnose but it is not uncommon to find a failed charcoal canister or a loose or worn gas cap.

Loud Vacuum Cleaner Noise on Cold Start

Drivers may hear a loud noise, much like a vacuum cleaner, coming from their engine on cold starts. This affects the 2005-2007 Land Cruiser V8 

The noise is from the secondary air pump, which sends hot air to the catalytic converter when the engine is cold. This allows the catalytic converter to clean exhaust better, and lower emissions while the engine is warming up.

Pump failure may result in:

Fixing the issue involves removal of the intake manifold, and replacement of the secondary air pump.

2006 Toyota Land Cruiser Reviews

Rated
based on 1 customer reviews
Fantastic SUV. We bought ours used 6 months ago with 50,000 miles on it. Have driven it across the country and have had zero problems. Gas mileage is not great but that is to be expected with such a heavy vehicle.
