    Hello, I have a 2005 Toyota Sienna XLE Ltd. 2WD. Recently, I topped the coolant since the coolant reservoir looked (kinda) empty. Since then, I have noticed coolant on the driveway (not a terrible mess, but about 12 inches diameter spot). Upon examining, I see coolant traces on the front of...

    Have a 2005 Sienna LE. Our first Toyota in '11 and one of the best vehicles we've ever had. It suits our family fine overall. Probably time to move on/up. It has 265K miles and is starting to need some repairs. Wondering what ya'll would recommend moving to. We don't buy NEW and go in debt, so...

    I have read with interest the multiple fog light posts. A couple observations/givens and a couple questions: Given that the cleanest/easiest install seems to be using the OEM wiring (thus necessitating a simple [but not cheap] stalk swap, a relay and OEM-like lamps), and Given that the...

    Hi, I own a 2005 Sienna LE and I plan to buy a 2011 on the next few days. I would like to know: Does the cross bars are compatible if I moved them from my 2005 to the 2011 model? Same questions for the rims: same bolt pattern for 2005 and 2011? My rims 2005 size: 6.5JJx16 ET50, tires...

    Our 05 Sienna has been a beast for 300,000 miles without fail now but yesterday it started overheating when the motor is idling and the a/c starts blowing out hot air. When I drive it cools to the proper point but then heats up again when stopped. The fans are working properly and kicking on...
  8. TSB's, Recalls, Warranty Issues
    Hi I've seen and heard many complaints about problems with the 2005 Sienna anti-lock braking system (ABS). In our case, the ABS comes on whenever the van tilts the slightest amount. The system kicks in a activates the brakes making it extremely dangerous and unpredictable to drive. We cannot...

    I have a 2005 XLE Ltd and has been working fine until this morning when I went out to my car and noticed my wife's van ticking like a clock from under the hood. (van had been sitting in garage all night) It is over on the passenger side and will not start / no power from it. It ticks ~ 1/sec and...

    So I just purchased a 2005 Toyota Sienna LE with 119K Miles for $4500. The good is it just had the timing belt replaced and the thing drives like a dream compared to a piece of crap 2005 Town & Country I had before. The bad is it has cosmetic issues as well as some minor nuisances. One is that...

    I have removed the cross bars from the roof rack on my 2005 Sienna, but I did not continue to remove the side racks because I don't know of anything that can be used to fill the holes. Does anybody know of anything that works?
  14. Mobile Electronics
    Does anyone have some information regarding what is needed to utilize the OEM backup camera with aftermarket decks? I imagine I will likely try to just hardwire whatever backup camera wires to RCA and try to hook them into the rear port and hope it works. I seem to find a number of conflicting...

    Hi all, Have a 2005 Sienna LE and the ABS and brake lights are coming on. No check engine light. Jumpered the OBD II connector to have the ABS codes flashed and I'm getting code 21 and 31. I'm surprised at how little and consistent the info on ABS is but I've found this info. 21 - open or...

    Soooo.... replace the Alternator-A/C belt a week or so ago and the wife had been complaining that it still squealed like a banshee - and I've heard it a few times and it did! Checked belt tension, about 1/2 inch of flex -seemed about right. Decided to tighten up the tension bolt a bit more -...

    Just got a used 2005 Toyota Sienna LE. Instead of a front seat center console it has a folding shelf with 4 cup holders - 2 for front, 2 for back. I am interested in getting an after market console that actually has some storage. Does anyone know how to remove the shelf? Thanks for the help!!
