When the check engine light comes on, the VSC light come on along with it by default.  I don't exactly know why, it just does.  Fix the problem with the air/fuel sensor and reconnect the battery, should take care of the problem.

Remove lower dash panel, remove screws holding cluster to top of dash, remove middle dash panel around steering wheel. this will expose additional screws holding cluster in place, when all screws are removed the cluster will move forward a bit. THEN you must reach behind and release the speedo. it wil either be plugged in or a spring clip holds it in place. push the spring clip toward the rear of the vehicle, while keeping no tension on the speedo cable, while it is fully depressed, gently and firmly pull the speedo cable away from the cluster. Two harness connect to the cluster, each has a pressure clip, just squeeze and pull back on harness connector to remove. When released the cluster will be freed. With the cluster face down, the bulb with remove with a counter clockwise turn, just confirm whcih one you want to change. I'd recommend changing all! check that all bulbs fuction before resecuring all pieces.

Your radiator fan stopped working maybe a blown fuse bad relay or radiator fan switch.When you drive the car get air and cools down when you are in park the fan is supposed to provide the air if needed but its not working. However the fan itself could be burnt out and may need to be replaced. Good Luck

Make sure the electric cooling fans are coming on. If they are, you could have a bad thermostat and gasket. If the fans aren't coming on, you probably have a bad coolant temp sensor. Also, check your fuses, if the fans aren't coming on.

Sure, I would sell you the same parts, IF I was interested in robbing you, BUT, I have no interest in having dissatisfied customers...So, here is what I need you to do: Call this number: 1-877-517-LOCK
This is my local locksmith,and he is cool...Tell them that I gave you this number. He has a machine, on his truck, that will reprogram your key to match the ECU/barrel combo in your car. Now, I do not expect you to have him come to your location, but, he may give you the info that HE has, his machine, and then you could call local locksmiths to see if they have the same gizmo that he has, to solve your problem. Secondly, there is an ECU exchange program from Toyota, that your dealer ssomehow neglected to tell you about, but it would cost you about 700.00 to get you going. Call the locksmiths first, and get back to me if my guy won't help you. This is the best that I can do, up to this point. Hope this helps. Advise of what transpires.

Please advise what was done to justify the $1,000 charge. What exactly was done, and do you have the current codes for why the light is back on? If not, go an AutoZone & they will scan if for you. Get this info back to me so that I may assist you better.

It is under the dashboard, driver side. White, oblong female connector. One row of pins not as long as the other.

Are the OTHER remotes working properly? If so, there is no wiring issues. It is rare that wiring can cause the remotes to be inoperative...Sadly, I have observed many remote/fobs that simply fail. I would advise both of you to take your fobs to your local Toyota dealer, and have the Service Dept check the RF output from the remotes on their hand-held detector. This is the only way to determine if the fob/remote is indeed working. No RF = no lock/unlock. All Toyota dealers should have this box, it is a required special tool. The part number for the detector is 00002-09001-01

Take it back! If you bought it as is do this. Retrieve radio code and any other preset. This is called a "hard reset" and will return all modules to their factory settings, disconnect both battery cables and touch them together for 30 or more seconds then reconnect and see what happens. I would be interested to see how this turns out. I hope this helps. Take care. If you have more questions for me or want to let me know how you turn out use testimonial and it will show up in my email.
