Rear window and passenger windows will not
The last couple of times I have seen this complaint, the "Lock" button on the master (driver's door) switch had been depressed. Unlatching the lock button (pushing it again) solved the problem. On most cars, when the lock button is depressed, the windows can still be operated by the driver, but prevent the windows from being operated by the passengers. Toyota is different. If the lock button is depressed, nobody, including the driver can work the wndows.

My 2006 4runners sunroof is not working properly.
What they are talking about is the cables that move the sunroof open and closed, these have plastic pieces that can break so I suspect that this is what the problem is. The reason that it's so expensive is that the headliner has to be removed and then the entire sunroof assembly so it can be taken apart and the cable assemblies that go into the guide rail can be replaced. It seems a little high at the dealer which is understandable, try checking around in your area for someone that can do the labor, the parts are around $400. You should be able to get someone that knows how to do this for around $800 or so labor.

How do i reset 1 kz-te prado code 99 engine immobiliser
ahh, you meant hack? RIGHT.

IMMO angry lamp,
so then you ask how to hack it not fix it ,right>/?
then failed to scan it and see if its:
1: communications errors.
2: key bad.
3: key transponder bad.
you, cant. hack it.
one guy did, but you dont know how to hack
EPROMS do you. I do, but I'm not doing that here.
also you can call key shop
and some do house calls.
and they reprogram the key for you on the spot.
Call them and ask,
my local shop here in town does.

all this is just boring OLD HAT to all mechanics.

Interpret trouble code p0171
This code indicates a lean condition on bank one of the engine. Possible dirty/defective MAF sensor/vacuum leak/low fuel pressure on bank one/ defective 02 sensor. The best thing to do would be to monitor live scan data and see what may be causing this issue before tossing unneccessary parts at the vehicle

Car's fan blower randomly blows harder
Just curious, does it blow faster at higher rpms and slows with lower rpms? Have battery-- battery cables-- charging system tested.
Of course there could be other issues? I'd have to do testing when issue is ongoing, as far as voltage and ground for the blower and the blower motor, itself. Try to be sure what is going on before replacing anything.

Heater (fan) not working
well the blower work on HIGH>?
if the blower i dead on high , replace the fuse. called blower
if the fuse is good, then the blower is bad , the controls to it are bad
the FSM covers all the tests.
if not DIY person, take it in for service.
or look on alldata.com (online, almost FSM)

im going to.
i did and xxxxx
if radio and nav codes are not backed up , they will die, after battery pull.
the operator guide warns of this.
if driving a A/T slushpump autotranny, it will need driving sessions
to learn you car mass and your habits.
on some cars, (read the FSM) there needs to be idle recalibration
and throttle by wire recalibration, and,, and.... they get richer.
depends on engine, and country sold,,
my 2008 has 14 on board computers. keeping them all happy is a ROYAL PITA. (even with full FSM in hand all 1700 pages)
