Toyota Yaris Problems

truck lock

i cannot unlock my trunk using the original operator key (not valet key). Now the remote release inside the car will not work. Please help. If I could get a visual of what it should look like that would help.

Check Engine Light With Code P0713

The Check Engine Light may illuminate on vehicles with an automatic transmission, with code P0713 stored. This fault code is related to the transaxle fluid temperature sensor. Our technicians tell us a revised transaxle wire harness is available which should correct this concern.

Vibration Due to Damaged Engine Mount

Vehicles with a manual transmission may develop an abnormal vibration type noise, most noted when accelerating from a stop or shifting gears. This is generally caused by a faulty engine mount. Damaged engine mounts will require replacement.

Load Carrying Capacity Label Incorrect

The vehicle certification label may indicate the improper load carrying capacity rating for the vehicle. This is because accessories were added to them after the vehicle was built, changing the available load that the vehicle can handle carrying. Vehicle owners will be provided a corrected label and dealers will aid in installing them free of charge to resolve the concern.

Driver's Door Power Window Switch Overheats And Melts

The driver's side power window master switch may lack enough proper lubricant to protect the sliding electrical contacts of the switch. This can cause a short circuit of the switch, leading to overheating and melting of the switch. Dealers will inspect the switches and apply lubricant to them if no abnormality is found. If a problem is found, the switch circuit board will be replaced. These inspections and repairs will be performed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Headliner Not Compliant With Safety Standards

The headliner inside the vehicle does not comply with federal safety requirements, and may not protect the occupants of the vehicle from injury in a crash. The dealership will replace the headliner free of charge to correct the problem.

Since this last summer was weak, the dealership stated they couldn't find anything wrong. Now that it is winter, the automatic transmission doesn't want to shift into the last gear even while on freeway speeds. The RPM's will rev over 4K and it will not down shift. Once the car is w...

Ive also driven my car to Vega...
Just found this site and wanted to crow about my 2007 Yaris 4-door sedan, bought new out of desperation after my 2002 Intrepid DIED. Hadn't heard of these before going to the dealer. No bells or whistles - manual windows and door locks. I drive 150 mile/day round trip to work - mostly expressway and paved county roads. LOVE this thing. Just turned 327,500 miles. The only non-maintenance work do...
