2005 Toyota Land Cruiser Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2005 Toyota Land Cruiser based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The power windows and mirrors stop working because of a problem with an electrical junction block—where power from the battery is distributed to that system.
Drivers may hear a loud noise, much like a vacuum cleaner, coming from their engine on cold starts. This affects the 2005-2007 Land Cruiser V8
The noise is from the secondary air pump, which sends hot air to the catalytic converter when the engine is cold. This allows the catalytic converter to clean exhaust better, and lower emissions while the engine is warming up.
Pump failure may result in:
- Check engine light
- OBD trouble code P1445
- Smog test failure
Fixing the issue involves removal of the intake manifold, and replacement of the secondary air pump.
A loss of power on the freeway may due to an internally leaking fuel pulsation dampener. This commonly occurs on higher mileage vehicles.
