#2 - Warning Light On problem of the 2008 Toyota Highlander
The vehicle involved was a 2008 Toyota Highlander. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is JTEES41A38_. In June of 2013 I went to mccarthy Toyota in sedalia, mo for an unrelated recall. Some work was done, but I was told to return in a week or so because an additional part had to be ordered. During this week, the red air bag warning light appeared. I had never observed this warning light before. When I returned to the dealer to complete the original recall work, I inquired about the warning light. The service manager informed me that my model Toyota sometimes had a problem with the spiral cable and I was one of the unlucky owners! he informed me that I no longer had functioning airbags, but he had the necessary parts to rectify the situation and could do it immediately. The cost was approximately $500 and was not covered by any warrantee or recall. I decided that I would have to take my chances in a vehicle that now had non-functioning airbags, since $500 was just too much money to pay. A friend recently informed me that I should file this complaint. This warning light on issue occurred 06/05/2013.
#3 - Warning Light On problem of the 2002 Toyota Highlander
The vehicle involved is a 2002 Toyota Highlander. The VIN of the problem Highlander is JTEHF21A82_. The air back dashboard light blinks intermittently in temperatures below 20 f. Dealer says to bring in. Trouble is we need the car for hours before they open and by that time the car has warmed up, the car has been turned on and off several times during errand running. After which time, the warning light is not showing. 1-trouble is we are not assured this is just a warning light issue which means it's okay to use while light is flashing. Nor do we know if this means the air bags may be defective and not work in any conditions!? 2-the dealer claims to not be aware of this issue although a simple search of the internet shows the same issue--their answer? "we didn't find any codes when we tested it". 3-this issue showed several times while our car was covered under the platinum warranty at the time they first "tested" for problems. This issue happened on Thursday, Jun. 15, 2006.

#5 - Warning Light On problem of the 2008 Toyota Highlander
The car is a 2008 Toyota Highlander. VIN of the vehicle was JTEES42A78_. Air bag warning light comes on intermitently but frequently. Dealer has replaced parts twice but failed to correct the problem. Toyota USA sent a safety recall notice (interim notice) appoximately 10 months ago which seemed to describe the problem but said Toyota was working on the remedy and a second owner notification would be sent when the remedy is available. The notice also said that when the air bag warning light comes on the air bags could deploy inadvertently and that the vehicle should be taken immediately to the dealer. The warning light comes on frequently but when the vehicle is taken to the dealer, he says that he cannot do anything to correct the problem until Toyota issues the final recall. I have contacted Toyota USA who state that they cannot give any date for when they will have a solution to this problem. Please help. The failure date was January 30, 2009.

#7 - Warning Light On problem of the 2002 Toyota Highlander
The vehicle was a 2002 Toyota Highlander. The VIN of the car is JTEHF21A82_. Airbag warning light illuminates in freezing temps and blinks at different rates. Once the temperature warms up, upon restart the light no longer blinks. I'm not sure if this will cause a problem if I need air bag support in colder temperatures. This has happened in the past several times as well. This warning light on issue occurred 02/09/10.
