2011 Toyota Sienna Long Term Road Test

2011 Toyota Sienna SE: Turn Signals? Maybe.

October 14, 2011


Last night I jumped in the Sienna to come home and was less than a block from the office before I noticed the turn signals didn't work. Either of them. Hit the stalk either up or down and nothing happened. No blinking on the dash. No blinking outside.

It was dark so paranoia immediately hit. If the signals don't work, do the brake lights? I can testify that it's quite diffcult to observe brake lights from the driver's seat. Even at night. Eventually, I satisfied myself that the brake lights were functional. And then, just to see what would happen, I punched the emergency flasher button, which miraculously resurrected the signals. After that the stalk worked as well. And they worked this morning.

Weird. Unnerving.
