Try to check your battery for sufficient current. Can you hear the starter motor running? If you do then you may want to check the ignition.

There are workshops out there capable of diagnosing the Harrier using their portable/handheld computers. How long has it been since your last tune-up? Let me know of your email if you want to discuss this further.

Toyota Harrier is an excellent car as far as comfort, space, road holding and power is concerned.

I however wonder why most of them that I have seen have some light on the dash board showing as if the tail light is on.

What does this light mean?

In my car, it means a tail light or brake light bulb has blown.

Yes, I just bought a 3.5 4WD 2006. On the rev counter dial there is a permanent orange light symbol like a fog light. I can't find the meaning or source of it. TPH, NZ.

That is most probably your rear fog lamps, as I have the same switch on my Harrier.

Any rear brake light bulb failing will cause this alarm; the high stop brake light in the centre rear window usually gets overlooked; check out that one.

You need to use 10W30 oil. Castrol Syntec would do.

Secondly, check the mass air flow meter sensor; it is located just after the air filter box. Use brake pad cleaner or carburetor cleaner to clean it out. There are 2 thin wires inside of this small unit; when it gets dirty the vehicle loses power and acceleration. You may need to replace this.

And change the fuel filter, that should help.

My 1998 Toyota Harrier does not engage into fourth gear; instead of engaging, the transmission light switches on. What could be the problem? I love this car, I don't want to sell it.
