After driving short or long distances, everytime I turn off the car, the rear speakers make this horrible screeching, ear-piercing sound. Toyota dealer service has not seen this issue. Anyone else have this experience, get it resolved and how and by whom? Greatly appreciate your advice if you had this same experience and an owner of the Toyota Sienna minivan.
FYI Toyota Dealer Service Center said they are going to replace the stereo amplifier

A few days back we broke the rear window on our van. After the autoglass guys came and replaced it, the rear door wont open. We dont have the automatic type. When we try to open the door, it makes a "servo" type sound but doesnt unlatch. Does anyone think the glass guys could have done something wrong or possibly just a coincidence that it doesntopen now.


I have several scrapes and dents from rubbing against a cement column. Location of the damage is the driver's side sliding door. The area is about 20 by 12 inches.

how many times should i service my toyota sienna 2008 model in a year

The heated seat light for the passenger seat indicates the seat heater is working, but there is no heat to the seat. This is a new problem.

The squeaking is not constant but periodic. The sound comes from the area on the left side down where all the belts are.

glass stuck half way

My 98 Sienna has a serious surging problem. I have had the Oxygen senson replaced, the idle air sensor, the fuel pump and a new computer (what it needed per the dealership $$$). Ran 2 months and now it has started again and is worse than ever. What could it be?

Check engine light came on at 116,800 miles. Had it checked and it was PO420. Took off bank two oxygen sensor and not really carboned. Took off PCV and it was clogged. Cleaned it out (rattle now heard) disconnected the battery and reset the PCM. Engine light has not returned. Went to move the van to a flat area to change the oil (two minutes of run time), and van would not stay started. Had to give it a "little" pedal, not floored. When van reached running temp. it ran fine and even re-started fine. Had several days of great starts and then the "low idle" stalling issue returned. IAC need cleaning? Throttle Body Cleaning? VSV issue? Help....

my side glass got broken last easily can it b replaced and at what cost?

The oil pump is conected to some type of crank that makes the oil pump work, how much would it cost to repair this crank or bearing?

I just recently had my van serviced after I crossed the poles when installing a new battery. They fixed it all or so I thought ..., lately my headlights will flicker off and on with the interior lights as well . I first noticed this when I was going from dim to bright..... After clicking the stick on the side of the side of the steering wheel and all lights( interior and headlights) will flicker off then on again. If it is just a fuse or relay I would like to change it on my own, what do you think?

I have a 2002 Sienna with just over 100,000 miles on it. I don't plan to keep it for more than a few more years. Given that we haven't had any problems and it runs fine, do I need to spend the $ to replace the timing belt?

Cost to replace drivers door? Restrainer/limiter component broken inside door.

the handle on the trunk door of my sienna minivan is broken. can i get a new handle at a junk yard? do i need to pay for parts and loabor at a toyota dealership?

i can't get it lose

I need to replace my middle rear seat belt (the strap was partially cut). The mechanism works fine. Does anyone know where I can purchase a replacement strap. The dealer is quoting almost $400 to replace.

when we go to start our van everything sounds ok. but the minute we put it into reverse or drive you can feel the van sputtering and a high pitch noise. when we put it back in park or nuetral the sputtering stops and the noise goes away. also the check engine light comes on and stays on or some times the check engine light just blinks.

any ideas?? thank you

Washer fluid light came on. Filled with fluid, light won't go out.

The van is running fine. The dealership first wanted to replace the exhaust manifold and the O2 sensor and now they want to replace the coverter. Im not doing anything until I am sure what the problem really is. COuld the bad converter be throwing the O2 code or is it a bad O2 probe throwing the converter code?

My Toyota dealer said that my rack & pinion is leaking and that it would cost $1200 to fix it. I can see no indication of any leaks on my garage floor. Could this be a scam?

I noticed that my ECTS fuse 10 amp was burnt I changed it but all I had was a 20 amp fuse , is it okay to run like this?

after changing my battery on my sienna my alarm will not shut off, I notice that i had the terminals swapped on accident. Now my car starts without my alarm sounding but there are multiple lights on such as ( ABS, BRAKE, check engine, and the tire pressure monitoring indicator) I think in reversing the terminals I may I have fried something , also when I press the gas there is barely any power... What is your opinion?

I changed my battery on my van, when I install the new one the alarm goes off. How do I reset?
