Question about 2008 Toyota Highlander

1 Answer

Possible to upgrade vehicle GPS system?

I recently purchased a Toyota Highlander with your GPS system. It works fine, but appears to be a model lower than our Garmin. Your system indicates the approaching street by distance, but I would like to have a system which names the streets. It is much easier to handle, especially in unfamiliar urban settings where streets are close together.

Is it possible for me to purchase an upgrade to your system in my 2008 Toyota Highlander?

Thank you for your help.

SOURCE: 19" FACTORY TOYO TIRES SHREDDING

Toyo®, Exclusive Tire of 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Limited Grade
September 20, 2007– CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – Toyo Tire (U.S.A.) Corporation announced today that the Toyo® Open Country® A20 is the exclusive tire of Toyota’s all-new 2008 Highlander Hybrid, Limited grade. In addition, the Open Country® A20 is original equipment on several other models of the 2008 Toyota Highlander, both hybrid and gas.

The Open Country A20 achieved exceptional low rolling resistance performance making it ideal for the hybrid model. The tires were also specifically designed to reduce noise and improve both wet and dry braking for added safety.

Based on the model and trim level of the Highlander, the Open Country A20 comes in two sizes: P245/65R17 105S and P245/55R19 103S.

Toyo manufactures and distributes a complete line of replacement tires for high performance cars, luxury vehicles, light trucks and SUVs as well as tires for commercial trucks, buses and off-road and construction applications.


I'm surprised if it's so good at braking that it has not ripped my entire tire tread off as technicians say the treat is separating well before its time!

SOURCE: I just had a few warning lights come on in my 08

Hello. Those three lights are all designed to illuminate when you have an issue with the electronic sensors on the engine. To properly identify the reason for the lights being on, you will need to get your vehicle hooked up to a scan-tool. AutoZone provides this service for free. Get the car scanned, and get the codes stored in the memory of the car's computer back to us for further assistance.

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Toyota

My 2004 v6 2wd highlander has the same battery, and I am just now replacing it. What is that 7 years? I found via google that it has 550 CCA. I think it would have lasted longer if not for kids leaving lights on every few weeks and an unusually cold winter for this far south.

Clock slow in 2005 highlander


This can be very frustrating, I know. Problem is that the clocks in later model vehicles are electronic. A low battery is not likely your problem. These clocks will operate correctly as long as your electrical system has the output of a flashlight battery, or even less.

I recently had the same problem with my new Silverado truck. It would lose about 4 minutes a month and it aggravated my to death trying to change it all the time. I replaced my radio with built-in clock and it works fine.

Not to say that you should go through such extreme measures, but it is sure nice to see the correct time.

How to reset 2011 toyota highlander low tire light


2011 Toyota Highlander. Had no luck finding the reset switch, HOWEVER, the warning indicator also includes the SPARE tire (there is a BT sensor in the valve stem which operators on a tiny battery which signals to the car as well). We had filled the 4 vehicle tires properly, and was still showing the tire pressure warning. Researched it and saw the SPARE is include with this monitoring system for the vehicle. Checked and filled the spare, the warning indicator turned off.

I just recently purchased a 2010 Toyota Highlander Hybrid (2 months ago). Toyota says there is noproblem with this model accelerating unexpectedly and sticking. It now seems to be happening yo Toyota Pruis...


Both toyota prius accelerator cases that I know of have been reported as flukes. the accellaration procces for the fuel and the hybrid models are completely different. plus the sticky pedal finding is a buy product from intense study from camry and the lexus version of camrys unattended excellaration probem, the sticky pedal will just not let of gas properly and also to be extremely rare not accelerating. Plus the hybrid versions are made in japan and if the did have the same pedal as a gas it would be made by denso the japanese pedal manufacturer, that has a heavier pedal it even has two more bolts compared to the american manufactured pedal that has been recalled. I personally build the highlander fuel version in Indiana It is an excellent vehicle i aswell own a 2010 that me an my family love youve got a great vehicle dont let abusers of a problem scare you of it.

2002 Toyota Highlander 2WD, 4 cylinder


Welcome to FixYa. I'll be glad to help you out.

Code P-1150 indicates an Air-Fuel sensor range/performance issue.

The air fuel sensor is similar to an oxygen sensor, but it does a different job.

Without in-depth analysis on a scan tool that can read the output of the A/F sensor, it is hard to tell you exactly what is happening, but prior experience indicates that you probably need to replace the A/F sensor.

You would do well to purchase a genuine Toyota A/F sensor, as the cheaper 'aftermarket' units do not perform well; your check engine light may remain on after you replace the sensor with an aftermarket

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice.

Turn off the tire indicated light on a 2005 toyota highlander


This can be annoying though you should not ignore it. You have done what i would have suggested but you might finally take the car for scan though it does not pose a treat.

Take care.
