My 2001 Highlander has 2 issues. If I start the engine with the heater on it squeals like a belt issue. Soon as I turn heater off it quits. Sound like a belt? I have an sound similar to an exhaust leak, more like a loud hum. Irritating if sitting in the back seat. A quick check does not appear to be exhaust. Noticed it quiets when turning wheel to the right. Could this be CV? Anyone with a similar problem that's been corrected that could shed some light. $ are tight, trying to avoid unnecessary service call.

Hear humming sound in the rear. Change rear brakes and rotor still hearing humming sound

I had a very small accident where I cornered and the tires slid on ice. I stepped on the brake very hard trying to stop the slide before hitting another car. I still hit the other car with only minor damage to my bumper and none to the other car. I had a very strange problem with the brakes after that. Sometimes the brakes would stop the car with no problem, but the pedel action felt squishy. Other time when the pedal was depressed it was like the brakes were studering and the brakes would sort of grab and throw you against the seat belt. When I took the car in the repair guy told me that I could have damaged the brake pedal pressure switch. I have looked online and can't find a switch by that name. Can you help with any suggestions? I had the pads replaced and now the car stops normally all the time, but my VSC and Trac Off lights on my dashboard stay on all the time. In talking about the lights he came up with the pedal pressure switch idea. Thanks for the help.

My daughter was involved in an accident in her 2007 Highlander. The policeman estimated the speeds at collision at about 30 and 45 miles per hour. She was cut off by someone merging onto the highway at 15 miles an hour. She hit the back of him causing almost $7000 damage to her car. The other car took off when hit so I don't know how much damage was done to his truck. My husband and I are concerned that at those speeds her airbags did not deploy. Thank you so much for your help!!

The driver's side windshield works but the passenger wiper does not move, are these individual motors or are they connected by a common linkage?

The water pump on my highlander needs to be replaced. What is a fair price to pay?

Only occasionally first thing in the morning without warmup there is a strong vibration apparently from rear of auto within the 1st 1/4 to 1/2 mile. It stops after that. It is, however becoming more and more frequent.
