The back rear window goes up and down ( within the tailgate that lifts up).
It is stuck in the up position per se., as I just bought it and the previous owner said, not to make it go down as it would not go back up, ( then how did he get it up ? ).,, hope this makes sense. Thank you very much.

To take off the old and put on the new, to
get at it, do you have to take the bumper off or can you get at it without doing that ?

I feel this single "thud" or "clunk" under middle of the chassis when coming to a stop at a light, but only occasionally. This won't happen right away but maybe a second or two *after* coming to a full inertial stop. When it happens, it's not subtle. I have the 4WD SR5. I've felt similar noises in other older (high mileage) 4WD/AWD vehicles but never got a precise diagnosis for those either.

Any ideas? Is it serious?

Also 12 codes came up until he plugged it in. Now only my O2 sensor is showing up. I'm still having acceleration problems but not as bad.

The key will not turn over so the vehicle will crank up

but still the car can not move and the new gear would not select. whats the possible problem?

From my research I am pretty sure that it is the downstream (after cat) sensor, but cannot tell if it is right (passenger) or left (driver) side.

Just had a full tune up. Spark plugs are new. Brand new radiator etc

Off is there some type of Spenser that makes the pump click off?

It was working fine and then I noticed the light blink and the air wasn't cold anymore. The fan works and when I took it to be serviced they couldn't at a Valvoline. Same thing happened with my 2003 Camry. I fixed my 2003 Camry with a relay that was advised for me on line and it works great to this day. Anything like that on the Sequoia? Where would the relay be please? It was so easy to fix the camry and cost only $58.00.

I have a rear window in my hatch back on my Sequoia and it will not open with a key or by pushing the button inside the car

Is there a way to open the back door latch broken from the inside

Guy at repair shop says the box inside my car isn't receiving a signal - needs to be replaced. What does this mean and how much$$

vibrates in the rear

Changed TPS sensor on SUV . SUV turns over but goes to a high RPM and then shuts off . Reinstalled old TPS and does the same .Sequoia was running ok right before the switch .Does sensor need to be configured ?


We just came back home from vacation (7hour drive) and parked. Everything seemed fine. Walked outside 10 mins later and lights were flashing. Very bad storm going on now with a lot of thunder and lightning. I'm wondering if it was hit by lightning.
