TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 01, 2006.TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . warning lights began coming on around 60,000 miles or so. started with the low tire pressure light & now has progressed to the vsc on, vsc off, abs warning lights being on all the time and the low tire pressure light is still on. i have taken this vehicle into 2 different dealers to be fixed for 40,000 miles or around 3 years which amounts to multiple trips to the dealer, waiting while they work on it or going without a vehicle for days at a time while they try to figure out what is wrong. they have replaced abs sensors, engine computers, brakes, speed sensor wires, reset computers, ordered new valve stems for the tires. i can get online & find thousands of complaints regarding the same issue in toyotas & lexus vehicles since at least 2001. the dealerships look at me like i am the very first & only person to ever mention these problems. the solutions online have ranged from defective master cylinder/brake booster assembly, faulty ignition coil, o2 sensors, vsc computers, catalytic converters & brake pedal switches. also problems with the exhaust system & acceleration module under the console was listed as fixing these issues. why has this issue not been addressed and/or fixed in 8 years ? there have been times when my brakes did not work, times when they barely worked, times when i put the brakes on & it abruptly pulls to the left or right & a couple of times when my vehicle would not accelerate as i was pulling across traffic. as i read of these "freak" accidents lately with toyotas, i have to wonder if they really are "freak accidents". i do not want my family or myself to be one of the toyota fatalities this year or anytime. when is something going to be done ? how many more innocent people have to die ? *tr.Mileage was 60000 miles.

TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 23, 2010.TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . i have a 2004 toyota 4runner sr5 v6. i have a constant issue with pistons on the front brake caliper seizing. this lowers the effectiveness of the brake system, and causes uneven wear on the brake pads. i have been able to dislodge the piston using a c-clamp and find that i have to replace the brake pads about every 6 months rather than the 2,3 to 4 year intervals on all other cars i have driven (including an older generation 4runner) this has been happening ever since i bought the car brand new in january of 2004. i found this website while searching for answers to my issues which i also found out that countless other toyota 4runner owners are experiencing. i have been diligent with my constant brake pad replacements as to not cause further damage or safety issues. i believe that toyota should step up and resolve this problem with these vehicles as they have with all of the vehicles in their new mass recall problems. they know it is an issue and even came up with a replacement caliper but it is not covered and is a $1500 job. *tr.Toyota 4runner 2004 problem was reported in GRANADA HILLS, CA.

TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Mar 23, 2013.TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2004, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . i experienced a terrifying "acceleration problem" this past week as i was parking my car at a local store. i'd already slowed down to almost a halt, but as i put my foot on the brake to come to a complete stop, it suddenly lurched forward with shocking speed. i instinctively threw the gear into park; it stopped as it crashed into the steps leading to the store entrance. the cause had nothing to do with a floor mat (i don't have any) nor "sticking" gas pedal (the car had already come almost to a halt before it suddenly accelerated). the brakes were useless and felt like they were disengaged; acceleration may have occurred after depressing the brake pedal (this is still cloudy in my mind). i bought the car new, in 2004. this is the first time i've had any problem. i wondered what i might have done to cause the problem after so many years without any. i realized i'd never used the cruise control feature, until recently, only in the past few months. i was not using the cruise control feature when the incident occurred, but the sudden forward surge felt exactly like what happens when the car is on cruise control and drops beneath the speed at which it's set; it surges forward, on "its own." i believe there's a causal relationship. my concern is two-fold: fixing a potentially deadly problem in my own toyota, and helping identify the cause of the problem so it can be fixed by toyota before another tragedy. *tr.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 50850 miles.

TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2004 car safety problem was reported on Aug 06, 2014.TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2004, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . 8/6/14-started my 2004 4-runner to leave work and a high-pitched alarm sound started and the vsc, abs, and other dash light symbols came on. i reversed out of my parking spot, and braked, and nothing other than those things was out of the ordinary. i pulled forward and pulled into another spot and called my husband to let him hear what was going on to see if he knew what it may be. he asked me to reverse, pull forward, and see what else i heard/saw, so i did so driving a short distance (about 5 parking spaces away) attempting to exit the 4th level of the parking garage i was in. i started to brake to turn left and no brakes. i pushed the brake petal as hard as i could with both feet and nothing, so i pushed the parking break and as it came to a stop, i panicked and threw it into park. i was within 1 foot of the concrete wall 4 stories off the ground. got it to a local dealer and told them i just got new brakes 6 weeks ago, could they have possibly gone bad? they called and said it was the abs module that needed replaced and the used part and labor is $3000 and the new part and labor is $5500.00. this is not normal wear and tear. others have had this issue and are being told "rare defect". this "rare defect" could have barreled me through a concrete wall or worse. thankfully no one was in the parking garage with me at the time and i was at a minimal speed. i was leaving during a lunch break. had i been leaving and this occurred after work, i would have hit someone. what will it take to get toyota to fix this "rare defect"? i have a call into them and of course, no call back yet. so, i'm currently stuck with a vehicle that had a recall for an acceleration issue and a "rare defect" for a brake issue. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 121000 miles.
