My Car Engine Started On Its Own After Being Turned Off. I Went Shopping At Walmart And Parked My 2016 toyota highlander Xle In The Parking Lot. I Put The Car In Park And Pushed The Engine Start/stop Button To Turn Off The Car. My Family And I Exited The Car And I Used The Keyless Entry Pad To Lock The Doors. We Shopped For Approximately 45 Min. When We Returned To The Car, I Used The Keyless Entry Pad To Unlock The Doors So I Could Put Our Purchases In The Trunk. As I Got Close To The Vehicle I Heard An Engine Running, But Thought It Was The Car Next To Us. I Bent Down And Listened Under The Front End Of My highlander And To My Surprise, I Realized My Car Engine Was Running. When I Opened The Driver Side Door And Looked At The Dashboard, I Noticed A Small Triangular Yellow Caution Light Was Flashing But I Don’t Remember What The Message Said Other Than Caution. If My Car Randomly Starts On Its Own While Its In A Garage, It Could Cause Toxic Fumes To Fill My Garage If Left On Long Enough, And Could Cause Harm Or Death To Someone Who Breathes It In. After Reading About The Brake/hydraulic Recall On Some 2015-2016 highlanders, Coupled With The Recent Issue I Had At Walmart, I Am Nervous About Driving My Car. I Wish I Had Read About These Issue Before Buying My Car 30 Days Ago. I Thought I Had Done My Homework And Read Several Websites Before Buying The Car, But I Will Read Recall Reports Before Buying A Car From Now On.

I Parked My Car In The Garage And Several Hours Later I Happened To Need Something Out There. When I Entered I Heard An Electric Motor Running Even Though The Car Had Been Turned Off For Several Hours. Crawling Under The Car I Found That The Sound Was Comming From A Motor Near The Rear Axle. I Reported It To My toyota Dealer And They Advised That It Was A Motor That May Run Hours After The Car Is Turned Off To Purge The Carbon Canister. They Advised That They Found That Information In Their Service Manual, But Not The Owners Manual. One Time Our Lawn Mower Decided To Leak During The Night Resulting In Heavy Gasoline Fumes In The Garage. My Concern Is That If Something Like That Should Happen Again I Do Not Think Any Electric Motor On The Car Should Be Able To Unilaterally Decide When To Run After The Car Is Turned Off. *tr

Hello, I Would Like To Get Nhtsa’s Help Because toyota Won’t Provide Any Remedy For This Problem. On 4/17/2015, I Bought A toyota 2015 highlander Le Plus From toyota North Brunswick (nj) And Noticed Buzzing Sound After Driving Only ~30 Minutes. Buzzing Sound Comes From Dashboard Area Constantly, ~once Every Minute (in The Beginning Of Driving) To ~every Second (after Driving An Hour). The Noise Is From The Air Blend Servo (related To Ac) As Acknowledged By Local toyota Service Dpt, But toyota Keeps Saying That The Noise Is Normal No Matter How Often It Happens Because The Regional toyota Field Technical Specialist (fts) [xxx] Said So, I.e. toyota Can’t Help You. (note: He Hasn’t Even Checked My Vehicle In Person.) I Think The Noise Itself Can Happen From Time To Time, But The Problem Is Frequency, Just Like Sneezing Every Second Is Not Normal Even Though Sneezing Itself Is Normal To Human. A toyota Technician Told Me The Other Day That Replacing Air Blend Servo Is Pretty Expensive Because The Whole Dashboard Needs To Be Taken Apart. I Suspect toyota Won’t Fix This Under Its Warranty Unless This Problem Becomes Life Threatening, I.e. Too Expensive For toyota. My Family And Friends Ask “how Can You Drive With This Crazy Noise?”. The Noise Is Almost Like Sleeping W/ 100 Gnats In The Same Room. I Am A Drive With Over 20 Years’ Experience And Have Always Used New Vehicles, But Never Experienced This Kind Of Problem With New Vehicles From Other Manufacturers. Please Help Me With This Problem. Thank You. P.s. I Also Found More People With Same Problem And Frustration: Http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/333-3rd-generation-2014/1077937-weird-vibrating-buzzing-noise.html. *tr

Takata Recall-this Past Sunday My Car Had Been Parked In The Drive Way For A Few Days And When I Went To Drive My Car And There Was A Strange Noise Under The Hood, I Backed Out Of The Drive Way And When The Car Shifted From First To Second It Jurked And Was Not Smooth So I Parked The Car. I Looked Under The Hood And There Were Mouse Dropping On The Engine. I Called toyota On Monday Morning And They Said To Have It Towed So I Did Monday Night. Today Wednesday They Called And Said There Were A Lot Of Wire Damage And Something Else But They Still Not Able To Find The Problem. They Said At This Point It Was Going To Be $500 Maybe More. And Not Under Manufacturers Defect Warranty. Which I Think If They Are Going To Put Something In The Wire Casing That Rodents Love Then They Should Correct Any Problems As A Results Of The Product Used At No Cost To The Customer. My Car Is A $45,000 Car And I Have Only Had It A Few Months. This Is Bull.

Two Or Three Times Now, While Paused In Traffic, I Look At The Radio Instrument Panel And It Has Completely Shut Off And Reboots, It Then Causes All Previously Programmed Information In The System To Be Changed. In Addition At The Same Time, The Steering Feels Like It “pauses”. I Checked My Vin It Is Not In The Recall But I Will Be Taking It To The Dealer As Soon As Possible. Once The electrical Radio/entertainment System Rebooted While Traveling On The Highway, I Only Noticed It Because The Radio Shut Off. I Did Not Notice Anything At That Time With The Steering And I Thought It Was A Fluke, But Now After Three Times, I Am Bringing To The Dealer

I Was Driving 80 Mph On The Interstate When The Engine Light Came On And A “check Awd” Display Appeared. At That Same Moment I Lost The Ability To Steer And To Accelerate. I Managed To Get The Car Off Of The Interstate. The Car Came To A Stop. I Did Not See Any Smoke, Or Smell Anything And The Engine Temp Gauge Showed Mid Cool So I Decided To Start The Car Again. When I Tried To Start The Car, The Engine Light And The “check Awd” Display Came On Again, And Then Seconds Later A Temperature Light Came On With A Loud Alarm. Smoke Started Coming Out Of The Front Left Hood. I Shouted For My Daughter And Her Friend To Get Out Of The Vehicle. I Grabbed My Phone And Ran To Her Door To Help Her And Her Friend Get Out. By The Time We Were Running Away, Flames Were Coming Out Of The Hood. Within Minutes My Car Was Completely Engulfed In Flames.

The Power Liftgate Closed On My Head When I Was Putting Stuff In The Trunk. It Was Open Like Normal, But Then It Suddenly Dropped Without Warning. Before This Happened It Was Having Problems Closing Completely. It Is Still Having These Problems. I Took It Into The Dealership To Get Fixed And They “reset” The System But That Didnt Fix Anything. It Is Still Not Closing Completely Sometimes. It Will Seemingly Open Fine (although Im Afraid It Will Fall On My Head) But When I Have To Close It Will Sometimes Close And It Will Sometimes Close Almost All The Way And Then It Will Beep Twice And Open A Bit Again And Sit There. I Will Have To Hit It To Open And Close Again And Hope That It Works. Sometimes I Get It In 2 Tries And Sometimes It Takes 4 Or 5 Times To Get It To Close.

Door Lock Actuator Has Been Replaced 3 Times Within 12 Months On The Vehicle, Twice On The Same Door. The Internet Has Many Complaints About This Defect. The Failure Rate Is Far Too High For This Actuator. This Is A Safety Issue Because, Due To The Design Of The highlander, If You Exit The Vehicle With The Engine Running The 3 Passenger Doors Do Not Respond To The Key Fob Or The Exterior Manual Unlocking Mechanism. If The Driver Door Actuator Fails During This Scenario You Are Effectively Barred From The Vehicle With The Engine Running.

Since The Problem Occurred At Speed And Infact While Making A Turn, A Near Collision Occured. The Problem Occured Multiple Times In Succession And Was Also Intermittent With Much Time Elapsing Between Episodes. Two Other Types Of Related Occurrences During This Timeframe Were The (1) Vehicle Also Cycling Off And On And (2) Would Also Turn On Itself If The Key Was In The Vicinity Of The Vehicle. toyota Of Seattle Experienced The Issues When The Vehicle Was Brought In And Diagnosed The Issue To Be A Loose Bolted Connection Of The Negative electrical Wire From The Battery To The Frame Of The Vehicle. Though The Vehicle Has Experienced Similar Issues Since Tightening Of The Negative Wire Bolts. Ongoing Issues Include The electrical System Cycling Off And On While Driving Including The Navigation And Front Console Display. The Vehicle Was Bought In September 2014 And Had Less Than 25k Miles As Of April 2016. On Two Prior Instances electrical Issues Were Identified And Documented To toyota Of Seattle And The Vehicle Was Kept For Testing. The First electrical Issue Occured With The Adaptive Cruise Control Failing And Thereby Requiring Passenger Intervention To Avoid Collision. This Cruise Control Failure First Seemed To Occur In December 2015. toyota Of Seattle Did Not Find Any Fault And Sent Me Away. The Second Prior electrical Issue Of The Battery Prematurely Failing Occurred In March 2016.

Stationary Vehicle. Power Rear Lift Gate Will Open Or Close On Demand Only Sporadically. It May Begin To Open Or Close And Move Just Several Inches, Or Perhaps A Foot.

The Entune Radio Has A Bug That Causes It To Reboot Randomly. I Have Had It Happen While Driving And Relying On The Navigation System For Directions In Heavy Traffic.

I Have Three Issues With The Electronics In My 2014 highlander Starting In June 2017 (right After My Warrantee Expired): 1. The Electronic Liftgate Is Non-functional. When Opening, It Takes Multiple (5-10) Attempts To Get It To Open All The Way Up. Same With Closing The Liftgate. Vehicle Is Stationary. 2. The Electric Passenger Window Will Not Close All The Way Until You Try To Close It Multiple (5-10) Times. It Goes Up About 3/4 Of The Way, Then Opens Again. I Found That It Works Quicker, After 2-3 Times If The Engine Is Shut Off. Vehicle Can Be Stationary Or Moving. 3. The Bluetooth Connecting My Android Phone Stays Connected For About 2 Weeks And Then I Have To Initialize It Again To Make It Work. Vehicle Can Be Stationary Or Moving.

The Rear Trunk Door Of My toyota highlander Is Not Functioning As Expected. The Motors That Power The Actuators Of The Trunk Door Are Not Working And We Have To Manually Open And Close The Trunk Door. Sometimes We Do Not Realize If The Trunk Is Closed Or Not Which Creates A Significant Safety Concern. toyota Was Having Similar Problems In The 2008 To 2013 highlander Models But The Same Issue Still Persists In The 2014 Models Also. I Took The Vehicle To The Dealership At Irving, Tx And They Advised Me That The Motor Powering The Actuators Will Need To Be Replaced And toyota Covers It As Part Of Warranty. Since The Vehicle’s Factory Warranty Expired In This Year They Advised Me That I Will Have To Bear The Cost Of Repair And Parts.

The Power Lift Gate Actuators Only Worked Intermittently And Caused Us To Close/open By Hand. This Occurred While Parked. This Eventually Lead To A Leak In The Driver Side Actuator. A Review Of The Nhtsa Website Showed That Of The 54 Complaints Listed 14 Concerned The Power Lift Gates. That Is About 25%. I Had To Have The Dealer Replace Both And They Said There Was Not A Recall. They Suggested I Call toyota Directly. toyota Rep Said They Could Not Reimburse Me After The Repair Was Complete. No Suggestion As To Replacing My Car While It Waited In Shop For Action From toyota. However toyota Did Pay For Half Of The Repair ($1000) And Stated That If A Recall Occurred At A Later Date We Could Revisit The Cost Of The Other Actuator. Since There Are So Many Complaints Re This Problem I Hope This Notification Might Lead To Other Documentation Of Similar Issues And Maybe A Recall. At This Time I Would Also Like To Add My Complaint Re The Radio/entune System Going Black And Then Turning Back On, This Seems To Be The Most Frequent Complaint.

At Totally Random Times, After A Few Miles Of Driving Or 100 Miles, Vehicle Hesitates When Accelerating. Most Annoying And Dangerous Is The Way It Doesn’t Respond To The Accelerator For A Few Seconds After Stopping At A Stop Sign Or Stop Light. Took Vehicle To toyota Dealership And Of Course Vehicle Ran Fine For The 4 Miles They Drove It. Tech Checked For Any Trouble Codes And None Were Found. This Seems Like A Rear-end Accident Waiting To Happen. For Ten Days We Have Gotten Nothing But The Run-around From The National toyota “case Manager”. (at First We Thought This Hesitation Occurred Because The Vehicle Was New, But After 8,000 Miles, We Are Still Experiencing The Same Issue.) *tr

I Bought My 2013 Brand New 9/27/12. Shortly After I Received It I Noticed Songs Would Skip Or Start Over On The Ipod As Well As The Cd. A Few Months Later The Radio Station Would Changed Channels For No Reason. These Things Happened If I Was Backing Out Of A Parking Space, Going Over A Slight Bump Or Just Driving Normally On A Regular Road Or A Freeway. I’ve Gone To Two toyota Dealership Who Can’t Find Any Problem And Because The Problems Are Intermittent They Say They Can’t Diagnose It. I’ve Had Two Caseworkers At toyota Of America And They Say There Is Nothing They Can Do. In The Past Month When I Pulled In The Garage The Headlight “sometimes” Turn Off When I Turn Off The Ignition. Other Times They Stay On The Normal 30 Seconds. I’ve Also Had A Couple Of Issues That Other highlander Owners Mentioned On Your Website Mainly When I’m At A Stop And The Light Turns Green A Couple Of Times When I Step On The Gas The Car Engine Revs A Few Seconds Then Lurches Forward. Also Recently The Dashboard Lights Dim Or Brighten For No Reason At All. My Concern Is That It Seems Problems Are Increasing And I Just Don’t Know Exactly What Steps To Take Next. *tr

I Purchased A 2013 toyota highlander From Cabe toyota, A toyota Dealer In Long Beach, California, On March, 2013. I Always Use Cabe toyota For The Maintenance Of This Vehicle. I Brought This Vehicle To Cabe toyota On July 5th, 2014 For 20,000 Miles Service And Replaced The Cabin Filter As Per Their Recommendation. I Realized The Acceleration Of The Vehicle Were Slower When Entering The Freeways After The Service. The Performance Was Even Worse When The Vehicle Going Uphill And The Top Speed Stays On 40 Mph Even When The Acceleration Paddle Was Fully Engage. When I Was Vacuumed The Vehicle Yesterday, Sept 26th, 2014. I Noticed Some Electric Wires Were Unplugged, And One Set Of Them Was Cut Off Completely. I Am Not Sure This Is The Result Of Manufacture Failure Or Maintenance Problem. Therefore, I Would Like To Obtain Information For Independent Inspection Center In My Area From You, So That I Can Bring My Car To Have Complete Diagnoses. Thank You. *tr

Furthermore, There Is Nothing That Prevents Something From Crawling From The Outside Into The Cabin Through The Engine And I Believe That To Be A Manufacturing Defect.

I Purchased The 2013 highlander New From A Dealer In Vienna, Va In July 2013. The Auto Started A String Of Engine Hesitancy To Accelerate Problems At Around 5,000 Miles Which Was Reported To The Dealer At The 5,000 Mile Check-up And Again At The 7,500 Mile Checkup. The Service Department Could Not Duplicate The Problem And Gave The Engine A Clean Bill Of Health. We Moved To Mn In May 2014 And The Hesitancy Of The Car To Move (accelerate) From A Stopped Position For Several Seconds After Engaging The Gas Petal Continues And Is Increasing In Frequency. The Car Has Been Taken In To The Local toyota Dealer On Three Occasions With The Same Answer That There Is No Problem With The Car. I Have Been In Two Near Accidents While Pulling Out In Traffic On To A High Speed Divided Highway And Consider This A Very Serious Safety Issue. It Happens Randomly, (three Times This Past Week), But A Pattern Has Developed – Most Incidents Occur While Idling At Intersections For Some Time Waiting For Traffic To Clear, Traffic Lights, Etc, And Then Making A Left Hand Turn Onto The Roadway. The Car Has Exhibited This Behavior Only A Couple Times While Making A Right Hand Turn From A Idling Start. The Sensation Is That The Engine Stalled And No Matter What Is Done With The Gas Petal Nothing Happens For Anywhere Up To 4-5 Seconds. With Traffic Moving At 60 Miles An Hour And One Is Attempting To Merge Into Traffic, A Five Second Delay Brings The On-coming Traffic Almost 450 Feet Closer To One Before The Car Starts To Move Requiring More Distance In Traffic Gaps To Overcome A Potential Stall In The Roadway. I Have Come Across Another Local Owner With The Same Problem And Note At Least 15 Other Complaints On The Web Of Almost The Exact Circumstances. What Does It Take For toyota To Recognize This As A Safety Issue? Updated 12/12/2017*cn

About A Week Ago My Right Rear Passenger Door Lock Started To Fail. The Door Would Not Unlock. This Is The Door My 5 Year Old Daughter Uses. I Took It Too A Dealer And Was Charged $638 Total To Replace The Actuator. The Service Tech Actually Misquoted Me, I Would Never Pay This Much To Fix This Part. Upon Reading Now I See That Many, Many People Have This Problem. My Car Is Still Under 3 Years Old. The Actuators Should Not Fail. I Have Never Had This Problem In Any Other Car. This Is A Severe Safety Issue If The Car Is In An Accident. These Cars Need To Be Recalled. I Will Be Contacting toyota Too.

The Complaint Has To Do With Computer Systems On This Vehicle. Some Of The Complaint Is Convenience, But Worrisome Because Other Systems Seem To Be Involved As Well. The Computer Screen Has Always Been Slow/hesitent, With Various “glitches”. Vehicle Has Gps Mapping Screen Which Occassionally “disconnects” And Resets To Blank Screen. The Bluetooth And Other Systems Have Also “disconnected” And Couldn’t Be Reset Until The Vehicle Was Stopped And Turned Off. The Headlights Sometimes Do Not Shut Off, Day/night Doesn’t Work Properly. Have Had Occassional Problems With Door Locks Not Working As They Should. Never Know When And Which Systems Will Be Affected. I Have Also Filed A Complaint About Intermitent Non-acceleration Issues, Which Maybe Related.

While Parked At A Curbside, With Engine Idling, I Spontaneously Decided To Adjust My Tilt Steering Column (up/down) To See If There Was A More Comfortable Position To Drive. When I Moved The Column Down For The First Time (i Had Never Tried To Adjust The Position Previously, Since I Bought The Car One Year Earlier), The Car’s Engine Immediately Shut Off. I Could Not Re-start The Engine And All I Kept Thinking Was Thank-goodness I Was Not Driving, As I Had Lost Engine, Steering And Braking Power. The Recent Headlines About Gm’s Ignition Switch Problems And Drivers Suddenly Losing Control While Driving Made Me Realize That I Could Have Easily Been In A Similar Catastrophic Loss Of Control Situation, Because Of The Tilt-steering Problem I Encountered. I Thank The Stars That I Was Not Driving Or On A Highway When This Occurred. My Car Had To Be Towed To The Dealer For Repair. Apparently, An Ignition Switch Wire Somehow Became Detached Or Broken Due To My Single Tilt Action. Scary Indeed. *tr

2012 toyota highlander Limited Door Lock Actuators Began To Fail At About 40k Miles. The Initial Failure Began With Rt Front Passenger Door, But All Four Doors Began To Fail To Lock Or Unlock Intermittently By Smart Key Remote Or By Driver Side Door Controls (sometimes All The Doors Would Fail To Unlock). Emergency Access To Any Of The Passengers Would Be A Concern. At 47k Miles, Two Of The Doors’ Actuators (rt Front Passenger & Lt Rear Passenger) Had Totally Failed, And Are Being Replaced By Dealership At Owner’s Expense Of $900 Plus $125 Diagnostic Fee. Web Research Of Multiple toyota And Automotive Forums Have Revealed That Similar Door Actuator Failures Have Occurred With Other toyota Models And Years, Many Reporting Failures That Occur Immediately Following Expiration Of Warranty At 3yrs/36k Miles. Based On Other toyota Owners’ Reports On This Issue, We Are Concerned That The Other Two Door Actuators Are Likely To Fail In The Near Future. *tr

Door Lock/unlock Stopped Working About 1 Year Ago. I Was Told By The Dealer That I Had To Cover The Diagnostic Test. I Got It Done Today And Was Told That The 3 Defective Doors Have An Issue And Some Part Must Be Changed At A Tune Of $1700! If The Car Has An electrical Issue, The Manufacturer Should Cover It, Especially Because It Involves 3 Out Of 4 Doors. There Was Nothing I Did Or Could Have Done To Mess Up The 3 Doors.

There Are Two Issues With My 2011 highlander. I Purchased This Vehicle 1 Year Ago And Am Quite Upset About The Issues And The Money That I Need To Put Into It. I Am Actually Looking Into Trading This Vehicle As, After Spending 26k On It, I Shouldn’t Be Dealing With Or Paying For These Issues. toyota Has Been Nonexistent In Offering Remedies. I Have Only Ever Owned toyotas (2 Camrys And 1 highlander) And Probably Will Never Own One Again. Thanks toyota!!! – The Alarm Constantly Goes Off For No Apparent Reason. I Am Unable To Lock The Doors On The Vehicle Otherwise The Alarm Will Go Off Every 30 Minutes To 1 Hour. toyota Wants To Charge $130 Just To Look At The Vehicle. This Is A Known Issue That Presents Itself In Every toyota Forum. There Should Be A Recall On This. – The Bolts That Connect The Window To The Contraption That Rolls Up And Down The Window All Have Fallen Off. This Cost Me 150 To Fix On Just One Window. The Bolts Loosen By Themselves And Fall Off. This Too Has Been Listed On Many toyota Forums And Should Have A Recall. *tr

The Rear Door Sensor Keeps Indicating The Door Is Open When It Is Not. This Causes The Interior Lights To Flash, Door To Chime, And The Rear Display To Show “door Open”. This Began Happening When I Would Turn Left. When The Weather Is Really Hot Outside (90s And Above) It Is Worse. This Issue Causes A Bigger Problem, With The Vehicle Thinking That The Rear Door Is Not Closed It Does Not Allow Me To Lock/alarm My Vehicle When Out In Public. I Am Active Duty Military And Currently Live Overseas, So Keeping My Vehicle Locked/alarmed Is Extremely Important.

Several Times Since We Purchased The Vehicle, The Front Driver’s Window Will Come Off Track And Not Allow To Roll Up The Window. This Really Is Not A Safety Issue However One Time The Window Did Not Come Off Track However The Door Would Not Open From The Inside. We Had To Roll Down The Window To Open From The Outside. This Was Very Scary Since My Wife Drives The Vehicle And Transports Our Children And Grandson. I Was Afraid If She Were In An Accident And The Power Window Did Not Work She Would Have To Find Another Way To Exit The Vehicle. Since The Vehicle Has Been Out Of Warranty, We Found Another Place To Fix The Issue. We Still Have Issues At Times With The Window. Another Issue Is That The Rear Door Sensor Constantly Indicates The Door Is Open When It Is Not. When This Happens, The Rear Display Stops Working And Says Rear Door Open, The Overhead Lights Flash, And The Door Chime Sounds. I Consider This A Safety Issue Since It Causes A Distraction While Driving. With The Door Chiming, Lights Flashing, And The Rear Display Showing A Message, It Takes Our Attention Away From Driving. *tr

In January Of 2013, I Took My highlander Into A Dealer’s Service Department To Diagnose A Problem With My Driver’s Side Front Automatic Lock, Which Had Completely Stopped Working At Around 46,000 Miles. This Means I Had To Physically Press The Lock As Not Even The Key Would Work. I Had To Open The Passenger Side Door, Crawl Across The Seat, & Unlock The Driver’s Side Door In Order To Get In My Car. I Was Told By The Dealer That The Problem Was The Door Lock Actuator, Which Went Out, & It Was No Longer Under Warranty. Rather Than Paying $575 At The Dealer, I Found A Mechanic That Ordered The Part & Replaced The Actuator For Less Than $400. Less Than Three Months Later, At Just Over 50,000 Miles & Only 2.5 Years Of Owning The Car, The Front Passenger Side Actuator Went Out. Needless To Say, I Had Some Words With The Dealer, & They Agreed To Do A One-time “courtesy” Fix, Replacing It At No Cost. Over The Next Few Months, Both Of The Rear Door Actuators Went Out. Not Wanting To Spend $800+ To Replace The Actuators, I Decided To Live With Risk & Annoyance This Caused, Hoping There’d Soon Be A Recall. Well, Here We Are In March 2015, & At 87,000 Miles, Guess What? The Front Driver’s Side Actuator Is Going Out Again. Searching The Web For This Issue, I Found Hundreds Of Similar Complaints From Other toyota Owners, Over A Variety Of Models & Years. This Is A Huge Safety Issue & toyota Needs To Recall All Affected Vehicles. I Can Come Up With At Least A Dozen Scenarios Where This Issue Could Cause Serious Harm To The Car’s Occupants. If I Can’t Get To My Child In The Back Seat Because I’ve Been In A Wreck & Door Is Locked; If I Am Car-jacked B/c The Door Wouldn’t Lock; If I Have To Enter Through The Passenger’s Side To Unlock My Door And X/y/z Happens… I’ve Already Locked Myself Out Due To This Issue (car Thinks Doors Are Unlocked & Won’t Warn Me My Keys Are Inside)!

Information Center Is Flashing Overheadlights, Audible Warning Bell, Visual Warning Lights Flash On Drivers Display, Unable To Lock Vehicle. This Is Alll Due To The Tailgate Registering As Open When In Fact It Is Closed. If You Unplug The Sensor, It Will Not Allow Access Into Or Out Of The Rear Door. It Has Now Started To Not Allow The Vehicle To Be Locked – Saying There Is A Door Open (rear). If You Go Around And Independently Slam Doors One At A Time And Then Try To Lock With The Remote After Each, It Will Eventually Allow U To Lock After Slamming Pass Ft. Door. The Is A Notable Problem For This Series And Is Becoming Quite Prevalent . Dealer Says Don’t Know What Is Causing It. Independant Mechanic Say It Is Door Actuator – Which Is Extremely Expensive.

Safety Hazard – Beginning In Mid 2014, My Driver Side Door Lock Started To Give Me Problems Not Locking With The Remote. I Changed The Battery Several Times To No Avail. Soon, The Other Door Locks Stopped Working One By One. Eventually, None Of The Locks Worked With The Remote Or By Pressing The Power Lock Buttons On The Doors. When This Problem Initially Started, I Noticed My Radio Station Information Would Also Disappear Or Be Illegible. When I Took The Vehicle To The Dealer, It Was Over $1,000 To Have The Actuators Repaired, Since They Had “gone Bad”. After Researching A Bit, I Noticed Several Makes, Models And Years Of toyota Vehicles Are Also Having These Problems. My Vehicle Only Had $50,000 Miles At Most When All This Started, And I Maintain The Suggested Maintenance. I Think toyota Is Well Aware Of The Faulty Parts They Have Installed But Don’t Want To Make The Necessary Repairs Due To The Cost. This Is A Major Safety Issue If Someone Thinks They Have Locked Their Vehicle And Could Be A Victim Of A Serious Crime Or Other Safety Hazard.

The Door Ajar Indicator On The Dash Is Lit Up 100% Of The Time Even Though It Appears That All Doors Are Closed. This Problem Started Approx. 2 Years Ago. In Addition If The Car Sits For More Than 1 Day, It Drains The Battery And The Car Has To Be Jumped. When Making A Left Hand Turn Or Start From A Stopped Position, The Warning Sound Dings. And The Key Fob Cannot Be Used To Lock The Car. My Mechanic Discovered That It Is The Rear Hatch Sensor That Is Faulty. Maybe The Sensor Is Faulty Or Maybe I Think The Hatch Is Closed And Latched And It Really Isn’t Or It Is But At Any Moment, The Latch Could Release And The Hatch Fly Open. After Doing A Google Search On This Problem, I Discovered That There Are A Lot Of Other People Are Having The Same Issue With Their highlander….i Have Attached A File That Contains Screen Shots Of Others With This Issue. I Stopped Cutting And Pasting After 17 Pages. This As A Safety Issue Because It Compromises The Quality Of The Battery And There Really Could Be A Door Ajar When You Think The Warning Light On The Dash Is Just From The Faulty Hatch Sensor.

I Was Driving My Car On A Secondary Road And Warning Lights Started Going Off At The Same Time(abs,precollision Warning, Engine Light,etc.) My Husband Drove It To The Local toyota Dealership. The toyota Service Rep Advises Me That The Engine Wires Have Been Chewed By Rodents. He Also Advises Me That This Is Not A toyota Problem So My Bumper To Bumper Warranty Would Not Cover It. He Advised My Auto Insurance Would Have To Pay For It. The Problem Is A toyota Problem. They Have Started Using Plant-based Material To Cover The Wiring Which Attracts Rodents. There Is A Class Action Lawsuit, But Not For My Model Of Car. Also, This Is Going To Get Someone Killed, Because You Can’t Hardly Keep The Car On The Road After It Happens. I Don’t Have Any Paperwork Yet, Because My Car Is Still At The Dealership.

3 Times The Collision Prevention Stop Working While I Was Driving At The High Way. You Have To Turn The Car Off And Then Turn It On To For The Collision Prevention System To Work Again. And This Is So Dangerous. The Transmission Sometimes Glitch And Not Working Properly And Shifits Like Crazy. I Feel It Sometimes That Car Sounds Not Right Because It Should Shift Smoothly. Air Condition When It On Cold The Fan Can Give Good Air Streem Which Is Good But When It On Heat The Fan Is So Slow And It Doesn’t Give Good Air Streaming. I Was Trying To Find A Way To Report This To Generate Recall But I Didn’t Know How Until I Found Your Website.
