Diagnostics On A Avensis 98

Recommended Posts

Hi folks got problems with my Avensis which I have posted previously just wondering if it would be possible to see the problem with the on board diagnostics and i have been told that if it is an immobilizer problem you can cross two pins for a few mins and that will reset it ??

please help as I'm totally confused with it ..?

And is the diagnostics plug is behind the coin holder ?regards meloned

Hello again. Yes your car can flash fault codes from the OBD by using a paper clip or earth wire to jump terminals 4 and 13 on the OBD socket. On the instrument panel, the EML, ABS, & SRS indicators will flash. The duration and the times are repeated, but if not constant will mean a code is stored.

The OBD diagnostics socket is behind the coin holder, just pull the holder open and out to remove.

You will find the fuse and relays, with the diagnostic socket just above.

I have not got a definitive faults list that includes the immobilizer, so you may have to check the forum or search the web for the answer.

If I find out more information I will post.
