I changed the camshaft position...
I changed the camshaft position sensor and my Sequoia still will not start. If i pull spark plugs out I can smell fuel when I try to crank it so I know gas is getting into it. And the battery is charged. And I out on a new fuel filter so the fuel should be clean. When the filter was off fuel will pump when I try to crank so the pump is working. So now I'm lost

No security light. Just check engine, battery, VAC Trac, and Trac off

is there a little red light on the dash anywhere? near the radio or somewhere else?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I do not see any red light on the dash
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Just the battery

again, what about a little red light on the dash somewhere, possibly by the radio?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I sent pics of the cluster. She is double checking and taking a pic of the entire dash but I did not see a red light last night

there has to be a theft light of some sort on that vehicle

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I can see where the light is in the cluster. The car shape with a key. But it is not on. In the picture you can see it in the dial of the speedometer but it is not on

does it come on when the key is turned to the on position(not start)

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Last week my wife was driving it and it literally died while in motion. My wife coasted and stopped on front a business and the tow truck brought it to the house. The gas tank is full but it sounds like it's out if gas.

no, does the key symbol come on with the rest of the light when you turn the key on.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No. It does not come on at all.

ok, so you have an immobilizer fault. standby

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
How do I do that?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Will that cause it to die while driving?

hows it going?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
