Now I have the same check engine code as before. Remove the Phillips screw at the upper front under the small round trim cap. In any case, it was above my comfort zone for a subwoofer that I probably don't really need. Last week failed and could not close door. Additionally, model year 1998-2003 Siennas were recalled as part of safety recall 10V-160. I think that's all the screws.
The rear amplifier is located under the center console. Redesigned for the 2004 model year, there's a lot to like about this version of the Sienna. Remove oil filter filter wrench may be needed. That cost is ridiculous for a van. You may need wire strippers and electrical tape better: heat-shrink tubing or liquid electrical tape - more on that shortly. A year after its release, the Sienna faced new competition from the redesigned minivan, which was larger and offered a V6 like the Sienna.
Slide the screwdriver slowly along the bottom and both sides, and pop out each connector from the door. When you pull out the factory thermostat, there is a rubber gasket that I took off and put on the new thermostat to seal the connection. However, when the weather gets hot, the weather stripping starts falling again. Crutchfield recommended a speaker, additional amplifier, and a wiring kit at a little more than I wanted to spend. Car would continue to drive straight if the driver let the steering wheel jerk right when brakes applied. Our smog this year failed trying to register the vehicle. Toyota flatly refused any help or to stand behind an obvious poorly designed power door.
The arm rest has two clips one at front edge and one about three inches back. Carefully pry underneath the trim in both of these location and twist the screwdriver to pop off the clips. Toyota continues to offer all wheel drive in the Sienna. To be honest, I can't recall if there's a proprietary one-piece connector on the end or not. If this was a wear and tear issue, I wouldn't be too upset, however, it is a design defect which they would provide assistance for a limited number of years. I think they are 10mm bolts. Once that is off its just a matter of lifting the whole panel up until it unhooks from the top of the door.
The Modified Life staff has taken all its Toyota car radio wiring diagrams, Toyota car stereo wiring diagrams, Toyota car radio wiring schematics, Toyota car wiring diagrams and cataloged them online. Broke again less than a year later. Toyota hasn't been able to figure out. If it were me, I would try to get an aftermarket speaker with as close to the same rating as possible and try to get it to fit. It can be resolved only after turning off the car and restart.
The Sienna is stable on the highway and easy to keep on course. Toyota dealer repair shop replaced compressor. Flushing transmission didn't solve problem. Acceleration from a standstill is eager and energetic, coupled with relatively prompt and effective responses for passing and merging. Don't use a screw driver! The source proved to be the passenger side sliding door that fell out of alignment. Went to Pep Boys and they diagnosed that a bushing on the shocks needed to be replace.
Be careful here and look behid the panel first to see where they are and where to pull the panel. The front and rear tracks are each nearly 4 inches wider, yet the 2004 Sienna has a turning radius more than 3 feet tighter than its predecessor. Pry off the plastic mounding around the door handle and lock. Dealer acknowledged problem, said had seen often, but no recall or redress available. Dealer said they were 99% sure that was the problem.
Your panel should now be completely loose on both sides and the bottom, held on only by the top lip that is supposed to lift off and the door handle trim. My Sienna is 13 years old and has over 200,000 miles on it. One of the most time consuming tasks with installing an after market car stereo, car radio, car speakers, car amplifier, car navigation or any car electronics is identifying the correct color wires for a 2004 Toyota Sequoia. At the edges and along the bottom underside of the panel and the latch end you will see some plastic plugs. It was designed at and engineered at in Ann Arbor, Michigan and Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan.
Once the two clips are loose the arm rest flips towards you which unhooks the back two prongs. The door check was a known problem on many of the vans. The dealer only replaced the compressor. If the door won't close automatically using the buttons , yank it closed manually a few times, reopen the door using the buttons, and see if the latch and sensor will link back up. Onve you unscrew all panel screws, pull it towards you and slide it towards the dash qt the same time. Make sure the door panel is in the same position it was before you took it apart or the bolts won't line up and the whole thing will rattle.
