Asked by Oct 17, 2014 at 09:09 AM about the 2015 Toyota Sienna XLE 8-Passenger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2015 Sienna, purchased less than a month ago, had had two instances where it won't start.  Message on the dash says to check the charging system.  A few minutes later, the car starts with no trouble.  I have had it in for service, but they cannot find anything wrong.

Did you find what was the issue? We leased a 2015 Sienna a week ago and had the same issue yesterday. It didn't start with Message on the dash says to "check the charging system" and then it started after a few minutes. Please share if you found what caused it.

The dealership checked the charging system (including battery) and found nothing wrong. Then, a few days later it happened again. In a short time, the dealership gave me a new battery, even though they couldn't find a problem with the battery. Since then (3 or 4 months ago), there has been no problem.

I had the same problem last night. A month ago, there was an issue with my spoiler and trunk "suspension"--I have had my van for about 2 months and have experienced some alarming concerns.
