I suggest you take it to a local Toyota dealer as these are simple faults that should be easy to fix. They may just be a fuse has blown. I would doubt it is worth taking a legal approach to solving this as it will be cheaper to fix it yourself plus how can you prove they were working prior to the gearbox repair.

There is no way to test this at home, it is done with a factory high end scan tool.

Best to get a Toyota mechanic . read out fault codes and go from there . you could keep changing parts and get no ware . if you don't know were the fault is . and most times if the parts have been fitted you can't return them.

you need to get code reset for your receiver from the dealer or replace the receiver with an aftermarket one, Crutchfield makes good ones and will sow you which ones fit.

is lamp in the CLUSTER? (not on ours)
no other lights stuck on (warning?)
are you saying the IMMO lamp glows, key out of car>?
that is a relay stuck. (or bad ignition switch or short there)
what country, this is USA site, so no country and no engine stated.
means all answer are wrong. (guessing)

it has its own theft deterrent ECU. (has power all the time,)
and the Immobilizer to main PCM.
my guess is one of 2 relays bad. (or input key switch bad to relay)
IG1 relay
and ( EFI-EOD) relay. can fail if above is stuck.

that is a statement in fact but what is the question.
DIY or what? who to diagnose cars, or just want a wild guess.?
bad HVAC, heating and air conditioning system.
Those are damper controls.
and they are failing,.and on all cars the answers is the same.
the FSM covers this, got one(factory service manual, 2001 LC)
Thius car came with front and rear HVAC systems
ill guess front unit.
one of the most complex on earth (cars) RTM and see,!

1: controls not sending damper commands right.
be it (vacuum , cable or electric)
2: commands not reaching dampers.
3: stuck damper, or damper bad, bad sevor, or damper motor.
or if cable the cable fell off.
some cars use all 3 damper types. Vac, cable, electric motors.

get it serviced, or get the FSM and read the HVAC chapter.
all answers USA, nobody has ever said here, what country and
cars do vary greatly by country , big time.
so.... ill look the USA online page, for this car, alldata.com
ok back ....
its has 3 damper motors , all electric and expensive and hard to test
in the TOy dealer they can SCAN it and cycle parts by hand,.
that tells them what is bad.
in the FSM, it may show how to test the motors with out a scan tool.
Many dont.
each motor , (unit) works different in each car, so there is no way
tell you a test. by hand.
on my car the FSM has bench tests. or the motors.
here is your system.
the 3 red X are the motors.
the center is the brain.
making my 3 step tests, true. above.
bad input to controller
bad controller (nah)
bad damper. or its stuck.

Replace it. It has stretched enough to cause the sensor to turn the light on.

Hi, don't know if you figured it out, but I just (literally 10 minutes ago) calibrated the compass on my 2001 LandCruiser Prado by doing the following:

- Press the up and down arrows together until the inclinometer starts to blink.
- Then press the "Mode" button to switch to compass. The compass should start to blink.
- Drive your car in a 360 degree circle until the compass stops blinking.
- And that's about it.

Even though this is an old question I wanted to post the answer because I've been looking at this issue for a year and haven't found the solution online.

Please note that this page http://www.tlocuk.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?p=2302&sid=327bc81ab3b0160e82d7863b3e6417f5 pointed me in the right direction although the instructions there caused the inclinometer to be re-calibrated in my car. I had to tinker around and I figured out that if I pressed "mode", it switched to compass calibration.
