Thank you for using Just Answer for your needs.
Are you sure that this is a 2005 year Sienna PoS?
skip letters PoS
just 2005 sienna
Ok. I am showing no Technical service bulletins listed for any updated software on this year and model. What code did you get from the check engine light?
do not know the code. had it serviced at a toyota dealer.
Maybe the receipt would have the code listed on it?
Maybe it was a P0420 or P0430 code?
i don't have handy. sensor was replaced.
Thanks. Most likely the code was either a P0420 or P0430 Catalytic converter inefficiency code. How many miles are on your Sienna?
That's a good thing because you catalytic converters are covered by Toyota for 8yesrs or 80,000 miles. The Dealer should replace which ever one is bad under warranty.
even though i only have a 5 year warranty which is now expired?
All Toyota's have several warranties. The first is the 3year 36,000 mile Bumper to Bumper. The second is the 5 year/ 60,000 mile Powertrain warranty. The last is the Federal Emissions warranty which is for the Computer and the Catalytic Converters and that is 8year/ 80,000 miles.
ok. i have copied and pasted the conversation in case toyota fails to comply. they have not been good to work with.
Have you tried going to another Dealer?
i have tried working with toyota usa and local dealers. this vehicle has been a problem since i purchased in 2/05.
I am sorry to hear that.
i will call tomorrow and set an appointment.
Thank you and I hope all goes well.
that will be a miracle given my experience with toyota. Thank you.
