Noisy Relays/ABS Actuator Pump
By Safari3006 on


2002 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


This truck has a major flaw. You will
hear the 3-clicking noise when you
first start it in the morning even if
you do not step on the brake. Drive
the truck for 10 minutes and make a
complete stop, and after a few seconds
you will hear the clicking noise again
for 3 seconds as if something is
engaging and disengaging. The local
dealer and the District Office of
Toyota Motors informed us that the
noise we hear is the ABS Actuator Pump
and it is normal so Toyota would NOT
replace it. This persistent noise can
be really annoying so buyer beware...

Best Features

Hood scope, front skid plate.

Worst Features

Would like Toyota Motors to recall all ABS Actuator Pump and replace it with quieter unit.
