Toyota Corolla Problems
The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an evaporative emission (EVAP) system fault. Our technicians tell us these EVAP system faults can be difficult to diagnose but it is not uncommon to find a failed charcoal canister or a loose or worn gas cap.
If the engine will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter. These will tend to go out at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.
There are occasional reports of daytime running light problems.

I pulled speedometer cluster out of a junked 1 zz I just don't know I have the basic corolla ve speedo & it's a 5 spd the corrolla I took it off looked like it a 98 & it was a automatic would have many headaches & wouldn't my miles displayed change ?
While driving, the car doors unlocked themselves without the unlock button being pressed. I pressed the button to lock the doors back and less than a minute later, the doors unlocked themselves again. This has happened twice before and both times I was in the car alone. Super weird.
Toyota Corolla Recalls
The driver's side power window master switch may lack enough proper lubricant to protect the sliding electrical contacts of the switch. This can cause a short circuit of the switch, leading to overheating and melting of the switch. Dealers will inspect the switches and apply lubricant to them if no abnormality is found. If a problem is found, the switch circuit board will be replaced. These inspections and repairs will be performed free of charge to resolve the concern.
When deployed due to a crash, the passenger side air bag can deploy abnormally, or with excessive force. The inflator may come apart, causing debris and fragments to strike and injure occupants. The dealership will replace the passenger air bag assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
The airbag control module can fail prematurely due to electrical noise beyond the tolerance it was designed for. As a result the front airbags, side airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners could deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated, increasing the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. Dealers will replace the airbag control module and front and/or side impact sensors as required to correct this concern.
