Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1999 Toyota 4Runner Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 302010

4Runner 4 Cil

  • Automatic transmission
  • 140,000 miles


Some times when the vehicle has been used for more than 15 to 20 minutes and is turned off, it do not start again until 5 to 30 minutes (is not consistent). When trying to start the engine, the starter do not work and the interior lights get weak. Is like some problem with the alarm system even though it was checked and no problems were found.

The most incredible part is that the Toyota dealer checked the whole electrical system, changed several parts and after spending more than $500, the problem is still there.

Except for this problem, this vehicle is working very good. Please help!
