Do you know if the TSB we hear about was applied to your vehicle? Anyway, thanks for reporting your situation and if possible, let us know! I live in an area where temperatures frequently drop to -20C/-25C and even less sometimes and this kinda scares me to leave my wife and kids stuck. I specifically bought a Sienna for the reliabilityI also have a Canadian 2022 XSE AWD
Had the battery problem for the first time 2 weeks ago.. Jump started and recharged the battery.
Last monday, battery dead when I was going to job, jump started again and went to the dealer to check the problem.
They did a lot of tests with the vehicle but can't find a solution.
Technical advisor called me yesterday and told me that 2 Toyota engineers are coming Tuesday next week to check what's going on!
They told me that at this dealer, 3 people got the same problem as me so yeah..
To be follow!
This is very encouraging!Got a call back from Toyota this morning, they had my Sienna for 1 week to do some test and the best Toyota Canada engineer was at my dealer yesterday. They finally found the problem that some people here already mentioned (Kick sensors) Technical advisor told me that Toyota will release a fix in the coming weeks and for now they disabled all kick sensors. I will finally get back my Sienna this afternoon and waiting for a permanent fix!
I thought there was a bulletin already issued by Toyota to fix the problem. I would think all Siennas will be fixed easily?If Toyota is listening, then, I can tell them like the cops sometimes say on TV: "We can do this the easy way (Toyota fix the problem regardless of cost) or the hard way". The hard way is by toyota making this problem the customers problem, when it should be the companies problem, and forcing a class action lawsuit.
For any owners who are experiecing this problem, repeatedly, I recommend contacting a "lemon law" law firm, if Toyota cant/wont fix it satisfactorily, and it would appear they wont.
