Toyota Sienna 2010-2020 Owners Manual: Changing shift ranges in S mode

To enter S mode, shift the shift lever to S. Shift ranges can be selected by operating the shift lever, allowing you to drive in the shift range of your choosing. The shift range can be selected by the shift lever.

Toyota Sienna. Changing shift ranges in S mode


  1. Upshifting
  2. Downshifting

The selected shift range, from 1 to 6, will be displayed on the multiinformation display.

The initial shift range in S mode is set automatically to 5 or 4 according to vehicle speed. However, the initial shift range may be set to 3 if the AI-SHIFT has operated while the shift lever was in the D position.

Shift ranges and their functions

S mode

Downshift restriction warning buzzer (S mode)

To help ensure safety and driving performance, downshifting operation may sometimes be restricted. In some circumstances, downshifting may not be possible even when the shift lever is operated. (A buzzer will sound twice.)

When driving with the cruise control or dynamic radar cruise control activated (if equipped)

Even when performing the following actions with the intent of enabling engine braking, engine braking will not activate while driving in S mode and downshifting to 5 or 4 because cruise control or dynamic radar cruise control will not be canceled. (, 263)

If the shift lever cannot be shifted from P

If “S” does not come on even after shifting the shift lever to S

This may indicate a malfunction in the automatic transaxle system. Have the vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer immediately. (In this situation, the transaxle will operate in the same manner as when the shift lever is in D.)

AI-SHIFT

AI-SHIFT automatically selects the suitable gear according to driver performance and driving conditions.

AI-SHIFT automatically operates when the shift lever is in the D position.

(Shifting the shift lever to the S position cancels the function.)

WARNING

When driving on slippery road surfaces

Do not accelerate or shift gears suddenly.

Sudden changes in engine braking may cause the vehicle to spin or skid, resulting in an accident.
