Hi. I've had my 06 tC for 2 months now. I bought the Scion security system and had it installed at the dealership where I bought the car. When I went to take the car home, the turn signals, the passenger and driver's side windows, the lights on the dash board and the heating system did not work. I immediately too the car back to the dealer and they fixed it. No problems for a month until one night I go to get in my car and the same thing has happened again. This time, they put a high amp fuse in(went from 5 amp to 10 amp). On my way home from the dealership, the same thing happened-same options not working again. I took the car back and they rewired the entire circuit to spread it out so that the fuses would stop blowing. I have had the car back for less than a week and I am having the same exact problem. I read another post on yahoo about someone having the same kind of problem after the alarm was installed. Does anyone know if the 06's have electrical problems? I really would like to know what is going on with my car...

They keep messing up the install. No system should keep popping fuses like this. They must have crossed a wire somewhere.

Does the lemon law apply to something like this? This is the 3rd time...

Maybe take it to another dealership?

No, they do not have electrical problems. You need to take the car back to youe dealership and tell to stop screwing around fix it right. I would go ahead and call Scion Corporate as well. 1-877-70-SCION and tell them whats been going on. There is no reason for this problem.

I don't know if the lemon law applies to electrical stuff per se, but it does apply if the problem makes the car unsafe to drive(no turn signals), so technically, I could have a claim with that. any ideas on what to do on that avenue? I made an appointment to go back and get it looked at again and I'm sure you're right that they have crossed a wire somewhere even after the rewire, but I'm really tired of spending all of my time at the dealership. Anyway, thanks for the info.

You need to look into the lemon law in your particular state. I'm not sure whether it would apply to something that is a dealer-installed option.
