2010 Toyota Sequoia, never had an issue before this. Also cuts the power when they come on. Had rotors machined and brake pads repl, now ABS and auto LSD lights coming on Intermittently.
Hi my ABS, VSC, Brake, and traction control lights are on. Sometimes the abs will go into effect. Today I was driving and as I accellerated on the gas, I could feel the car breaking. 2008 Toyout Rav 4. Nad now it appears that the auto lsd isn’t working as well. Help please. I replaced gas cap with a generic make according to auto parts store
Mine is 2008 rav4, I just turned on the engine only to find out that the rpm, speedometer and the temperature Gage has stopped working.
Any help please
Speed fan knob is not working on Toyota RAV4 2008 . It does turn but air does not blow. Would like to know the cost for replacing this.
The car has selectable 4WD. The swishing sound is timed with wheel rotation, increasing with speed. It's not the tire (brand new), tire balance, or alignment (both checked when tires were bought). It happens when the car is in regular rear-wheel drive or in 4WD. There is no vibration in the steering wheel. What things could cause the sound? Could it be a worn ball joint or a tie rod or what? How do I check for the problem? The old tire on that wheel was very worn on both outside edges, but the pressure was correct. I thought new tires would fix the issue but they did not.The car has 110,000 miles. Appreciate any advice.
Transmission cost to repair
Loud clunk going into reverse. Seems to slip in forward on occassion. Problem is intermittent so hard to diagnose.
Especially happens when wet out. Doesn't happen most of the time. But quite often.

Any ideas?
After changing both front wheel bearings brand-new rotors on the front ,rotors shaved in the back and brand-new brake pads all around my car started to feel like the tire was going to come off a wobble if you will or like a knot in the tire but there's not you couldn't feel it in the steering wheel but now you canslightly feel it in the wheel and I can feel the wobble in my butt and my feet. It also feels like in my feet something is rubbing are grinding or hitting something underneath the car. I got up underneath there and discovered I need to change the swaybar because the boot was busted I changed it other than that the CVC shaft has a dent in it were metal was pulled back and it's pretty deep deep.

I just picked up an '08 Rav 4 to replace an old Honda CRV yesterday (purchased from care dealership). Tonight the VSC light, Brake light, ABS light and Slip indicator light all came on at the same time 30 min into my drive home. The dealership had put new brake pads and smoothed the rotors. From what I'm reading on here I need to take it somewhere (a dealership or even Autozone) and have them hook it up to a computer and tell me what's up? I have had a Honda for years and use their dealership for my maintenance - would they be able to do this as well or do I have to go to a Toyota dealership?
Thank you in advance!
This is a V6 base model
My fan only works on the highest setting then stops
On one site I read that Toyota covered this repair even though beyond warranty.
Is this possible? Another site said 2008 rav 4 doesn't have viscous coupling rather has electro magnetic something or other..?
