    First time poster, long time lurker. I have learned so much from this forum so first- thank you! I bought a replacement driver side visor to fix the dreaded sagging visor and followed the instructions to replace it. In the process of removing the original visor I stupidly managed to pull out the...

    Just installed some fog lights on my 2016 LE. I’ve got everything wired up and noticed there’s a wire needing to be tied into the park lights. My question is does anyone know if it’s essential to hook up to the fog lights to the park lights? Or can I run them without tying into the park lights.

    Just bought a low mileage 2018 RAV4 LE. Last car I bought was a 2005 Honda Civic, so I am in electronic fix/computer shock as well as sticker shock. I have some questions that I am sure others here can help me with. 1) I need manuals beyond the owner's manual for doing things like adding...

    I am trying to hardwire a dash cam to my '11 RAV4 4WD v6 (Base model) recently, which requires one "constant/always on" fuse, one "ACC" fuse, and one "ground". and am having a bit of headache finding an "ACC" fuse (fuse which is only on when the car is on). I really don't want to use any of the...

    OK so I've been trying to get this issue on my girlfriends car fixed for months, 2002 rav4, and have lots of points I think could be hints, but have not figured it out myself. Any help would be SUPER appreciated, I'd literally pay some money at this point just to get an idea here, I'm that...

  8. 4.2 Faults & Fixes
    I am having a very similar issue to some other RAV4 owners on this forum. I have a 2003 RAV4, that is having a recurring electrical issue. Battery keeps dying. I took it to my mechanic and he thought it was the alternator. Replaced the alternator, but battery died just a few months later...

    Hi Everyone, I'm currently planning out a project for my 2019 RAV4 Hybrid in which I will repurpose one of the unused instrument panel switches that is to the left of the steering wheel. I plan on adding an RF transmitter that will be able to communicate with a garage door. I'm evaluating the...
  10. 4.2 Faults & Fixes
    Our 2003 RAV4 with 100k plus miles started having a weird electrical problem. I took a trip to the grocery store with no issues. When I went to start it in the parking lot on the way home, everything was dead including the accessories. I popped the hood to check for a connection problem, and the...

    I just bought a wolo bad boy Max for my 2015 rav4. I removed the old horns and attempted to wire it to the pair of wires directly. However, when I tried it nothing happened even after switching leads. Anyone have any advice on this whether it’s with this horn or any where you have to wire...

    2004 Rav4, I am currently having a very weird electrical issue. But the car does not quit running. What does happen is the dashboard lights, speedometer, Tachometer, odometer, gages, AC and fans, electric windows, and door locks all stop working or working intermittently. Many lights on the...

    Per suggestion, I’m reposting this in the 4.4 forum in hopes of having better luck. I’ve got a 2016 rav 4 hybrid and while driving home my electrical systems just randomly restarted themselves: computer, dash, and interior lights. It was like the car turned itself off and then back on, but just...
  14. 4.3 Interior
    I’ve got a 2016 rav 4 hybrid and while driving home my electrical systems just randomly restarted themselves: computer, dash, and interior lights. It was like the car turned itself off and then back on, but just the electronic bits. I still had total control of the engine, brakes, and steering...
  15. 4.3 Mechanical
    My 2008 Rav4 must have a ghost. The haunting started about 2 years ago. I've got 120,000 miles on it, and it drives great! I'm looking forward to the next 100k with this car. I always drive with the auto-headlights on, and the dashboard dial turned all the way up. Only once in a while, the...
