2004 Toyota Sienna Problems

Problem With Door Mechanism in Electric Sliding Doors

Models with electric sliding doors can develop problems with the door mechanism. The cable in the door becomes frayed, which will damage the electric motor.

transmission died

We bought our 2004 Sienna new, drove it in town and on vacations. The transmission died at 250000 mms or about 155000 miles. It would have cost more to replace the transmission than the value of the car so it had no trade-in value. Toyota's usual reliability and resale value was sorely missing.

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Oxygen Sensor

One or more oxygen sensors may fail resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light.

2004 Toyota Sienna Recalls

Spare Tire Carrier Cable May Break

The spare tire carrier cable may break due to corrosion from road salt. Dealers will initially move the spare tire and relocate it to the luggage compartment free of charge if parts are unavailable. When parts are available, dealers will replace the spare tire carrier assembly with an improved one free of charge to resolve the concern.

The Shift Interlock System May Fail

The shift lock system prevents the shift lever from being moved out of the Park position unless the brake pedal is depressed. These vehicles are being recalled because the shift lock solenoid could fail rendering the shift lock system inoperable. If the shift lever is moved out of the Park position when the brakes are not applied the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. When parts become available, dealers will replace the shift lock solenoid to correct this concern.

Various Issues Due to Failed Crankshaft Pulley

The amount of adhesive applied between the inner and outer parts of the crankshaft pulley may be inadequate. If this is the case, the outer ring may become misaligned and/or not properly rotate with the inner ring, causing an abnormal noise and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light. In some cases, the power steering belt could come off resulting in a loss of power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the crankshaft pulley and replace it if necessary.

I purchased a 2004 Sienna five years ago. So far, the unscheduled problems have been for the 2 rear seat belts not working and sliding doors getting stuck. I had to make the sliding doors manual by cutting the cable so we can open and close them. I called Toyota about the seat belts but they said that the warranty has expired. Are the seat belts supposed to last only 36,000 miles?? Other r...
After having a Ford Explorer with problems I was hopeful that my 2004 Toyota Sienna would be a better choice for the family hauler. Boy I was wrong there. The quality of this vehicle is marginal at best. The list of problems I have had over the years includes: - Heated Seats stopped working - Radiator had to be replaced - Lights on overhead console are completely out - Sunroof is cons...
