Toyota Highlander QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Back story: I bought my 08 base model highlander at a reputable lot 7 months ago. I love this vehicle! Only 72,000 miles on it. Three days after I bought it, it wouldnt start one morning after pumping gas. Car lot towed it back and replaced the battery. Everything worked fine and had no notification lights on. I work out of state and left the vehicle in storage (outdoor but securely covered) for about the last three months. I was home every other weekend and would crank it up and circle the block in it.
Current issues: The last week since Ive been back I noticed that the check engine, vsc, and traction lights are on....also....I can crank the vehicle and it will start right up but immediately shuts off. If I try to crank it again right away it starts up and stays on with no problem. This happens EVERY time I go to start the car. There are no odd noises, ticks, or vibrations. The only other symptom is realized when I try to accelerate quickly. The RPMS rev up but its almost like the transmission may be slipping because the car doesnt shift and speed up. I am still able to accelerate and drive safely. If I slowly accelerate, the transmission shifts with no problem. Had the codes checked and out of 8 hits only two were "confirmed". One mention low positive input
Question: What is going on???
Rotors have been changed, not the problem. Brakes are fine, tires are good.
Car stops well, does not pull to the right.
Acts like ABS has a dry cylinder.
They have not been replaced in 2 years.
The noise stops after a few moments
I do not park under trees and have never had a sunroof leak before
When I start my car, I hear a really loud ticking sound similar to a belt falling off or slipping. The car performs fine, but I don't know why I'm always hearing this sound.
I can't find the button.
I have 75,000 miles on it now.
Do I have to use premium grade?
In my Highlander, the check engine light stays on 24-7. Why is this? Even when nothing is wrong, it will not turn off. It makes it difficult for me to know if something is actually wrong or not.
Antilock brakes engage on highway if I lift brake Petal up with foot then fine for a while vib very bad when happens
through all the gears. I believe that it is only shifting to 4th gear. The transmission is a 5 speed automatic. The vehicle is all wheel drive.

Tachometer was working fine until I was about a mile from home, abs and brake warning lights both came on at the same time and fuel gauge needle began fluctuating. This was all simultaneous. Turned the car off and restarted abs and brake lights both turned off but tachometer still not registering. Aliens or?

Which terminal should l disconnect first?
Where can i find lamp failure module in 2002 toyota highlander? My right rear brake light doesn't have power, i tested on the terminals without the bulb and housing. The park light terminal has power, but the other terminal (brake) doesn't have power even when brake pedal is pressed. Do you happen to know where exactly can i find or how to reveal the brake lights junction (presumably somewhere between the fuel filler lid and left brake light housing)?
Check engine light came on. Purge valve for a 4 cylinder car was ordered and placed inside a 6 cylinder car. Will problems occur or not since the wrong purge valve was installed?
And it has no power and I need to change the plugs so what should I replace and how much should someone charge me to do both ?
have already had both catalytic converters replaced.
What started out as a low hum has progressed to a loud whine or roar accompanied by a vibration in the floor. I have had the front bearings replaced and numerous things checked or fixed. The latest opinion is that it could be the transfer case, but he's not 100% certain and won't be until they get to the transfer case and take it apart. It's an expensive repair that I don't want to do if I don't need it. Is this a common problem? Thanks
