I have a 2007 FJ Cruiser approaching 150k miles. In the past 2 years I have had to replace the alternator twice. What could be the cause of that? I have also replaced the battery twice in those 2 years.
My speedometer stopped working and get error code p0500. I replaced vss 245 after the code and still have same error code and my speedometer still doesn't work. What now? Please and thank you!

Radio was working fine before battery change. Replaced several fuses. Passenger side seat sensor not working. Any ideas how to reset?

FJ starts but idle goes up and down. Getting code P2118, c1201, and C1290
I took the car for a wash, then the next day while driving my dashboard signals handbrake light on.
Also the abs and slipping light on followed by a 1 min alarm beep. Afterward it goes all clear.

It just stopped and the horn is the only thing I can find that does not work.
I turn the key over and it starts up for all of two seconds and then immediately dies, like its not getting fuel. I have replaced the fuel pump twice, thinking it may have just been a bad pump the first time. After changing the pump the second time, it sounds as if something is shutting the fuel pump off. I have also tried replacing the mass airflow sensor, only resulting in the same issues.
I took my FJ to the dealer with a Cam senser problem on bank one and after $900 diagnostic and finding the problem they recommende to have the timming chain replace at a cost of 3678 on top of the 900. Killer.Thinking of taking it somewhere else.
The FJ Cruiser which is a great vehicle overall has cheap plastic parts on the end of the bumper and other places too. Toyota should be ashamed for adding these cheap junky parts on the end of the bumper. Anyone know where to get these parts cheap or an alternative to going back with them. I am considering throwing the entire bumper out and getting a real aftermarket bumper instead. These stock bumper clip on pieces are as bad as the left foot rest that breaks off and gets stuck under the brake pedal.
Part numbers Driver side T01005174 & passenger side T01004174.
Every time. Not balance or alignment. One said transmission. Another said no. What to do?
