Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
2005 Toyota Tocama,Auto, Brake lights work,but it won't come out of Park.Flashers work,but the signal lights do not.Heater stays on hot even when you turn the dial to cold. Air conditioner and recirculate buttons don't work.The lights that show the Park,reverse, drive,etc, don't work at the shifter or in the dash. This all happened at the same time. Do you have any ideas where to start?
No aftermarket assessories,except for phone charger, and GPS which both plug into lighter holes. Weather has been very nice the last few days.
At times the charger,and GPS will go off,but all I have to do is twist the connections,and they will come back on.
Do you have a digital voltmeter or a 12 volt test light? Does the cruise control work?
I do have a voltohm meter. I have not tried the Cruise control. I now have the consol apart, but I can still go check and see if the cruise light will come on....I started the truck and the cruise light will come on,but I would have to put the consol back together to actually see if the cruise will work.
i'LL GO SEE IF i CAN TAKE IT FOR A DRIVE
The Cruise light will come on in the instrument cluster, but the cruise will NOT set while driveing
How is the brake supposed to read? I have 12V on 2 of the connectors. I can bridge 2 of them on the same side and the brake lights burn,but when I bridge the other 2,nothing happens.I don't know what the other 2 are for.
Sorry it took s long,but I couldn't get the meter leads on the switch while the switch was in the truck,so I had to take it out. Anyway,The 2 larger prongs are N/O and close when the switch is pushed. The 2 smaller prongs are open and when the switch is pushed the meter gives an erratic reading and then goes to open again.
I just replaced the brake light switch( It took 2 days to get it), and It DID NOT fix any of the problems. Any moore Idea's?
No signs of water
Truck is still not fixed. I will put a new transmission rotation sensor on it this evening,and try that. The check engine light is on and when you check that,it says that the trans rotation sensor is bad.
I don't know what the code # XXXXX I took it to Advance auto to have it read. The guy at Advance said it was the Transmission speed sensor,so I bought one for $144.oo and it did not fix the problem.The Transmission will not downshift manually. It stays in drive no matter what position the shifter is in. I have the dash apart now as I just took the Turn signal relay out,and will replace it tomorrow if I can find one.
I did not clear the code. I have ordered a signal light flasher,but have not received it yet.I'll let you know what happens. Answer this back so I can click on the link when I get the flasher installed
Installed a new signal light flasher.Nothing changed. Had check engine code read. It said P0504,brake light switch, andP0705 Transmission range sensor (park/reverse/neutral/drive/low imput).Reset codes. Installed new trans. range sensor on left side.drove about 2mi. and check engine light came on.Checked light code,same P07605 Put the trans range sensor that I took off of the left side,on the right side.cleared codes. drove about 2 mi. check engine light came on again.Checked codes,and it says P0705 Trans. range sensor (park/reverse/neutral/drive/low imput.Still need help.
Still waiting for a reply
4-wheel drive with the V-6
No. It will only start in Park or Neutral.To get the transmission out of Park,I have to push down on the button below the little tab beside the park indicator light.The transmission shifts hard sometimes,and sometimes it shifts OK.
Tell what time that you will be on-line so that I can be sure and be here. This truck has been down for 3-weeks,and I need to get it fixed.
Relist: Other. I've been working on this truck for 3-weeks,and still have not fixed it.I need someone that will help me.
Is any one going to respond to my Problem. If not please sent me an e-mail and just tell me that you are not going to help me.
I sure would like to hear from someone.
do I need to retype all the problems,or can you read what I have already posted for the other expert? Anyway the truck is still not fixed.
Thanks for the reply.It looks like you know what you are looking for.It will take a little while for me to take the consol apart again and make those checks,but I'll start on it now. Please reply back to this ,so I will have a reply menu to get back to you when I get done...Thanks
OK solid PINK lead did NOT have 12vdc with key on.
solid GREY did have 12v with key on
solid BLUE did have 12v when brak pedal was engaged.
Continunity check on white w/black strip to ground is good.
That seemed to fix all the problems.I haven't driven it yet to make sure thr trans shifts properly. I am sure that you have a schematic for this vechicle. I have tried to get one but couldn't. Where did you get it? I wll put the consol back together and take it fr a drive.
Thank you very much. I wish I would hve gotten you first,it would have saved me alot of time and money. I took the truck for a drive and the trans shifts good as well. May God bless you.
