Toyota Previa gs will not start

Hi Ken, Is the vehicle cranking (the engine turning when the starter is engaged or does nothing at all happen. If its the latter, I believe you have a problem with the battery. Get a friend to help with an jump start (Positive to positive and negative to negative) and then crank and it should start. If the engine turns but fails to start, when the ignition is turned on, do you see the engine check light with all the other warning lights. If not open the hood and replace the ECU fuse nod then try again. If you see the light, let us know and we can go on from there. Regards John

My 2003 Toyota Previa (diesel, with ABS) brake warning light on dashboard lights on after pressing brake pedal a couple of times and when it lights off pedal goes slowly all the way down to the floor. In...

Sounds like there is a fault with the vacuum pump not generating enough vacuum for the brake booster assist, or a leaking vacuum hose. Try pinching off all the vacuum hoses to see if the problem goes away. Could also be a leak in the brake vacuum booster itself

Previa 2001 i change the oil (5w30 with aditiv )cooling liquid ,filtrs,sparks,service for 145000km the engine is running very well gas test ok but after 1000km a light on board show failure engine ....

Hi, this is very normal the chances are your O2 sensors where ok and it was just the cat causing the problem, if the cat is giving the wrong gasses out then this will cause the O2 sensor to seem as if they are faulty, so the warning you get is bad O2 sensors but the fault may well have just been the cat, get the cat changed and you should find you will have no further problems.
Plus as you have changed the sensors then this would rule out them causing you problems in the near future.

once the cat has been sorted the sensors will pick up the correct mixture from the cat and this will then stop the warning lights coming on and it will also make your car run a lot smoother and use less fuel

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Hi where is the rear fog light switch on an n reg lucida cheers

It can be absolutely anywhere. Rear fogs are not required in Japan, and the Lucida was a Japanese-only model. When they get exported outside Japan to territories like UK/Europe where rear fog lights are compulsory the importer or retailer usually just fits a cheap rear fog light kit and mounts the switch almost anywhere as long as there is a warning light visible to the driver.

Better quality conversions will replace the Lucida's lighting stalk with the one fitted to the Previa; this has a rotating collar which acts as the fog light switch and sometimes the job is done even more properly and the instrument binnacle from a Previa is also fitted. This then means that the warning light is with the other instruments as per a Previa and if you're in the UK/Republic of Ireland the speedo in is mph.

I have a toyota previa gx 1996 orange light seems to stay on

not to many local independent repair shop will have the right equipment to test or do correct diagnostic. same way if you have bone problems, you want to go see the bone specialist not an eye doctors, Engine service light could mean one or many things, I would recommend take it to Toyota Dealer and have them do proper diagnostic, Will cost you 70 to 85 bucks, its lot cheaper than guessing and buying parts and hope that will be the right one. Once they do diagnostic they will tell you what it need and you can do the work replacing the part your self. good luck

When you say "warning light is on", I assume you are not talking about the oil pressure gauge...
If not, here is your solution:
What you have is a very common problem: The oil LEVEL sensor has failed. Previas have 2 sensors; pressure & level of the oil in the pan...What you need to do is replace it, Toyota part number : 89491-28030.
BUT...This part is $380.45. Not cheap; Sorry but true.

Warning light

the red light indicates low oil pressure, check your oil and add as necessary, if it still comes on you have some type of restriction in an oil passage somewhere. the reason it only comes on when turning is because when turning the fluid level shifts in the oil pan and if it is low it is moving past the pick-up tubeand you only pumping air
