Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you
I see that you are offline. I will check back in shortly to discuss your three questions.
Is the vehicle close by at the moment?
hi, how are you doing? yes and no, I am in the office. lol thanks
I am fine, thank you.
question 1: Try to press and Hold the power rear door switch.
Question 2: This is normal
There is a sensor on the top of the dash that tells the system it is daytime or nighttime
Q1: the button inside the car or the button on the door?
they can sell em, but they cant tell you about em
Q2:so there is no way around this?
q1 button on the fob
q2. Sorry. no
q1: what is fob? (sorry)
Q3. THe recirculate feature moves on and off whilst the auto air is running it will admit fresh (colder or hotter) air to modify the temperature. It will shut off if you have the car in defrost mode.
You only use Recirc with the AC on
fob is the remote transmitter
Recirc and defrost, when cold out, will steam up all of the windows on the inside surfaces
q2:so it could happen again, if it does, i just press it on fob, then it will work? thx
q3:the problem is that even when the AC/FAN is off, it seems like RB(recir button) has its own mind
shoud be q1:so it could happen again, if it does, i just press it on fob, then it will work? thx
Press and hold. All Toyota products power rear doors are press and hold. Keeps them form opening if you bump the button
q1:that I know. I guess my question is it did not work when I tried to open the back door inside the car by pressing the botton on dashboard, it beeped twice. nothing happened. I had to use fob to open, then the dashboard button works again, is this normal? thx
As long as the auto air is active, the system is monitors the set (desired) temperature. The system does allow air to enter the car, with the fan off. this air is exhausted out of the rear of the car, in other words, new air is being routed thru the car whilst it is moving, prevents the air form being stagnant.3
Q1. Sometimes they can be a bit finnicky
THe rear door sticks to the rear door weather strip, that causes a balkiness in the opening, probably what you have going on
Q3:is there a way to have Toyota to set it to manual? if it is, what should I tell them when I get there? (they didnt seem to know what I was talking about..)
Adj the mep manually.
temp not mep
what is "mep"
thank you very much
sorry. Arthritis in right wrist... :-(
Hello again. Sorry to bother you, but I would like to provide you some additional information I neglected to post during our interaction on the power rear door issue.
Note that there is (albeit a bit 'hidden') a master over-ride switch for the power rear door on the instrument panel. This is a black switch, that is located on the left of the instrument panel, but lower down on the panel. This switch is not the release switch for the power rear door, it is a seperate switch to the left, and lower than the others on the left side of the instrument panel.
If the switch is depressed, the entire rear door system is deactivated, and, when you attempt to open it with the switch on the dash, or the remote, the system will beep twice.
I hope this additional information will prove beneficial to you.
Thanks for accepting my previous input, and an extra thanks for the Bonus.
I appreciate that gesture greatly.
Have a great day.
