    Hi, Thanks for the reply. If you don't mind me asking what make and year was/is your vehicle? How long ago was it when you took your car in to be fixed and it hasn't had any problems since? If you have a 2005 corolla they may not give me a hard time about looking up the #'s you gave me, but if it is a different make/model/year...I'm sure they'll give me a hard time like they did last time. I have made a print out of your email so I can take it into the dealership.

    My 2000 Corolla is having problems with its seat belt light. When the belt is clicked in properly, and is in its normal taut position, the Seatbelt Light comes on, but the light disappears if you pull the belt lightly to give it slack and make it slightly loose. Nothing seems out of place with the belt, and during normal driving, everything seems fine with the belt. The light however won't go away, unless i pull on the belt and keep it loose. Can someone offer me any advice on this. Thanks.
  • I have a 2005 corolla S with the same engine. I had the same problem and was very frustrated. I took the those TSB#'s to the dealer and they gave me NO TROUBLE AT ALL and took the car right away. I've had NO TROUBLE since then. I THINK the reason why they gave me no lip was beacuse they had no knowledge of the fix for that particular problem and saw it as a relief. I too had the famous "couldn't duplicate the problem" from the dealer, until I found these TSB's. Also, click on this link and enter your Model/make/yr and it will give all the TSB's on the corolla: Office of Defects Investigation Good luck!

    What kind of noise is it. It could be an exhaust leak.

    I have been having the same problem. The code readers all come up with a message that it is running lean on bank 1. I was told that the problem was the main oxygen sensor - replaced it but it didn't help. Also told that the throttle body was dirty - had it cleaned but it didn't help. Also have found the fuel pump does not seem to be priming the system correctly - but can't locate the problem (relays test okay ).

    The fuel pump doesn't have a prime. The repair manuals like haynes aren't right. Toyotas dont prime. The fuel pump should hold about 21 psi after shutoff so the engine can start easy. The fuel pump only runs if the engine is cranking or running. If you get lean codes, here are things to check:::: Fuel pressure, intake leaks, vacumm leaks, MAF sensor, ECM... Check those first.

    I'm also having problems with my standard am/fm/cd stereo system. I've brought my car to the dealer 3 times with the same problem, the stereo will randomly turn on and off (the faceplate looks like the stereo is on, but I get no sound from the speakers. I also hear a popping noise by my rear speakers when I turn the radio on.) I have been repeatedly blown off by the service dept. at the dealership, because they are unable to "recreate the problem." I'm about sick of this car and it only has 16K miles on it. Is anyone else having problems like this?
  • I have a 1999 Toyota Corolla CE. For two years I have been trying to solve this noise problem. I first heard it coming from the inside the car on the passanger side dashboard where right against the window where it meets the hood. It does it randomly when I am driving and idle. It does it a lot repeatedly when idle and when I get out of the car I hear it coming from under the hood. When you put the least bit on pressure on the hood the noise stops totally. Take pressure off, it starts again. It is like a load clicking noise/pinging and/or loose noise. It sounds like it is coming from the top left part of the hood where it right before the wiper cover meets the windshield. I've taken it to Thompson Toyota in PA repeatly for 2 years and they have no idea what it is. They ripped apart the dash, insulated the dashboard plates, tightened up the dash clips, realigned the hood, sprayed and tightened the latches in the hood, taped wires up...and NOTHING. It still happens! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh and there is also a crackling noise coming from the center of the dash which I believe has something to do with the air vents.

    Try a higher octane gasoline. Just a guess. Roger

    If the check engine light was on before you drove the car and the code was cleared that would have put the light out. Once the computer sees the problem again it will put the check engine light on again. I am guessing this is probably what happened to you. Some vehicles will hold a history of codes in there memory, you might want to ask another dealer if this is so with the corolla, and if so take it to another dealer to have the history checked. It is also possible if the battery was disconected that all history would have been cleared from the computers memory. Good luck . Roger.

    Try relacing the motor and transmission mounts. Those are probably causing vibration.

    My VSC indicator light on my 2006 Corolla does not go on when i turn the ignition Key. I do see the Letters VSC in my console when the sun is shining on it. All the other indicator lights go on. Does this mean I dont have VSC or is there a malfunction?? Thanks :confuse:

    The CEL (Check Engine Light) comes on and off these days, I found out the error code is P2716 "PRESSURE CONTROL SOLENOID "D" ELECTRICAL", someone said it is relating to the transmission, could anyone tells me what is the real problem?

    I want to bring the car to the dealer, please advise if they still can computer out the error code in case the CEL does not come out by the time they have the car?

    Need advice for the above ASAP, thanks a lot.

    The vehicle should still be under warranty (depending on the mileage). It likely has nothing to do with the transmission. The problem could be as simple as bad gas, a defective gas cap, or an 02 sensor problem. A reset may be all that is required. The repair should be covered. This is not new. Good Luck.
  • penizzlepenizzle Posts: 104
    You're wrong. That code does have to do with the tranny. Transmission solenoids are under warrrenty so dont worry about paying big bucks.
  • petlpetl Posts: 610
    The message should be referred to lime. I'm not the one with the problem. Until the dealer verifies it, no one knows what the problem stems from. That's the point I was trying to make. As we both stated it should still be under warranty.

    i don't think all models/trims have VSC.

    did the dealership provide you with the window sticker from the manufacturer? it should be on there.

    for the 2007's the specs are here:
    http://www.toyota.com/corolla/specs.html

    so if it is the CE model, probably not.
    for the 2006, maybe you needed to get the LE to get VSC.
    sorry, i don't know.

    there also appears to be an ownership link:
    http://www.toyotaownersonline.com/?s_van=GM_TN_OWNERSERVICES

    maybe if you register, you can determine this by your VIN number.

    Further to message #2584
    Thanks for the infos, I am going to bring the car to the dealer, I need to know if the error code will be stored as the CEL (check engine light) is on and off all the time, which means it might appear in the morning and disappear in the afternoon, or appear today and disappear tomorrow, I just afraid the dealer refuses to inspect the car in case the CEL is off by that time. Please give me an expert advice that if the dealer still can find the error code if the CEL is off? Thanks
