Toyota Sienna Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Toyota Sienna

Models with electric sliding doors can develop problems with the door mechanism. The cable in the door becomes frayed, which will damage the electric motor.

Multiple cracks may develop on the upper surface of the dashboard. At this time, the only suggested repair is to replace the dashboard.

One or more oxygen sensors may fail resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light.

Southeast Toyota is recalling certain vehicles because the seat heater element may become damaged as a result of compression of the seat cushion. The damaged element could short causing burning of the seat cushion, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will disconnect seat heaters with copper strand elements and refund the purchase price of the seat heater accessory to correct this concern.

The shift lock system prevents the shift lever from being moved out of the Park position unless the brake pedal is depressed. These vehicles are being recalled because the shift lock solenoid could fail rendering the shift lock system inoperable. If the shift lever is moved out of the Park position when the brakes are not applied the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. When parts become available, dealers will replace the shift lock solenoid to correct this concern.

82 vehicles manufactured by Eldorado National-Kansas (ENK) may have a condition where the left rear shock absorber can contact the fuel filler neck. These vehicles are all modified versions of the Toyota Sienna. The resulting damage could cause a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire. ENK dealers will relocate the rear shock absorbers and add a spacer to correct this concern.

And before that the check engine light was on - O...
