2005 Toyota Sienna Recalls
Southeast Toyota is recalling certain vehicles because the seat heater element may become damaged as a result of compression of the seat cushion. The damaged element could short causing burning of the seat cushion, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will disconnect seat heaters with copper strand elements and refund the purchase price of the seat heater accessory to correct this concern.
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.
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.
