If memory serves, in a 2005 Scion xA, if you leave your key in the ignition, leave the headlights on, don't buckle-up, etc., there are audio alerts that should sound; I'm not hearing any for any of them. That being the case--and suspecting a blown fuse since _all_ those items are affected--I looked in the Owner's Manual and there's no mention (in the back) of a dedicated fuse for those items.

What should be next in the troubleshooting chain to find the culprit?
I went through water and light came on dashboard A/t oil temp
How long have you had this problem? 3 days

Cranck but won't start

What seems to make the problem better or worse? I feel the tank and start driving on highway not even 5 miles and all lights on dash board start blinking and die
My mechanic told me that my car needs new Brake Drums (front and rear) and Pads, so far. As I did more research about Brakes -it's a lot more than what I expected (there are more brake parts). However, I want to get an idea if the price is fair or they're just trying to rip me off (which I haven't got to that part yet the Estimate).
I know the parts prices vary and it all depends on which parts they use plus the Labor will rise up the pricing. My (2) questions are:

1. Let's assume my car need new Brake Drums (Front and Rear) and pads only. How much should I expect the whole jumbo be?
2. On the other hand, if it needs the whole Brake Replacement, how much are we talking about?
I appreciate it.

It now wont start. It wasnt gettin sparks from spark plug but i then had all 3 new sensors put on. It now spark plugs are sparking but it still wont crank on. Can someone plz help me and my mechanic have no idea what else could be wrong bc head gasket isnt blown?
My car is idling rough. It's more so when I keep starting it and turning it off. Replaced the spark plugs and ignition coils. The ignition coils did not have clips on them, don't know if that makes a difference or not. I put an additive in, helps it run smoother for maybe a day, clears the check engine light, but it always comes back on. Any ideas as to what's wrong? Sensor, vacuum leak? Something with the timing? Thanks

Scion Xb 2008 stopped in the middle of the road, wouldn't re-start. Connected to a scanner: Fault code P0117: low engine coolant circuit voltage. I added coolant, tried to re-start the car: Starter spins, cranks sometimes, but car won't start. Any ideas? Am I looking at a dead engine? The engine did not overheat, according to the thermostat in the car. At wit's end, thanks.

My car was broken into; passenger side window was smashed. I found out, that also the window regulator and the master switch had been damaged and needed replacing. The insurance only wants to pay Safelite window replacement rates for labor for all of it.

My battery died & replaced it , it starts but when it starts it loses power, I disconnected the black cable from the battery kept running ,
The rear seats and floor and getting saturated and smell like mildew and mold. I haven't heard anyone else with this car say they have this problem. Anytime it rains, I wash the car, and it snowed recently and the inside of my wind shield was iced over! Any ideas of where the water is coming from? Also where are the sunroof drainage holes? That could be a solution but can't find them.
Several months of this happening but Toyota Dealer seems surprised? I took the car in and of course it wasn't happening at the time and the "computer test" revealed zero. Is this a common issue with Scion or is it a bad fuse or?
