  1. I know this is a long shot, is their fuel in the tank and is it petrol and not diesel!
  2. Might just need the freeplay on the clutch cable adjusting, get it checked at Toyota dealer.
  3. Mileage adjustment on cars under three years old can be a problem, due to PCP and lease finance with mileage limits. I find a careful check of the tyre condition and age is a good indicator of mileage and driving style on low mileage cars. If a car is on its original tyres and wear is excessive beware!
  4. Could be a fault on the selector cables, check to see if moving selector to drive position moves selector on gearbox.
  5. I have a 17" genuine Toyota steel Spare wheel, complete with wheel nuts, fitted with a part worn Geolander G91 225/65 R17 tyre. £80. Also a genuine luggage cover in black £50. both from my 2009 XTR.
  6. Fuel filler pipes prone to leaking due to rust,ask if it's been replaced.
  7. Could be to turn off reversing sensors when towing.

    17" Rav4 Wheel

    I have a Genuine Toyota 17" steel spare wheel complete with wheel nuts and part worn tyre,from my recently sold 2009 RAV4 available, if you still need one.
  9. The brake light switch on your rav4 sends information to various components in the vehicle, so it may still operate the brake lights, but still cause the problems you are experiencing. Perhaps a forum member with more auto electrical knowledge than me could confirm.
  10. If you look at the top of the brake pedal, under the dashboard you'll see it. If you want better access remove the lower dash panel, just fastened on with 2 screws.
  11. Check the brake light switch is working correctly,if that's ok is the battery voltage correct and car charging as it should. If no luck with that you need to get any fault codes read. How does it seem to drive oddly? Hope this helps.
  12. I would check all four tyres for signs of uneven tyre wear, if nothing found, have your wheel alignment checked and report any settings outside of manufacturers specifications to your Toyota dealer, and let them sort it out.
  13. Get the brake light switch checked out,faulty switch can cause curious problems,not uncommon on Rav4. If thats ok. get a competant mechanic to read any fault codes stored in the ecu and take it from there,hope this helps.
