My Toyota App/Website problems


Recommended Posts

Hello! I have recently purchased a Yaris Launch Edition (2021). This appears to be a very nice car, though the same cannot be said for Toyota's apps/services.
The dealer wanted me to sign up with the My Toyota app (on iOS). I can get as far as being emailed an OTP, but when I paste it into the app it does what's shown in the attached image.
The website says that my account hasn't been confirmed and offers to send me a confirmation link. When that eventually arrives and I click on it, I get the following JSON:
{"status":500,"message":"Error occured when activating the user","service":"TAAS"}
I.e., a failure of some sort has occurred on Toyota's server.
I filled in a form on Toyota's site requesting assistance, though this didn't really offer much space to describe the problem, and they have yet to reply.
Has anyone here encountered similar issues and, if so, were you able to solve them?

I emailed cr@toyota.co.uk when I had an issue with my app. It took a few days, but they got it sorted out.

Thanks for the info. I'll perhaps try that in a day or two if I don't get any response from their web form or mytoyota@toyota.co.uk.

Do you have an account on the Toyota UK customer website? The MyToyota app links to the login details and the car registered there.

That's the site mention above, where I get a JSON-formatted internal server error when trying to register. 

So, I can use neither app nor website.

Sounds like the garage has not logged the details of your purchase.

Thanks. I've contacted the garage to ask them to look into this.
I did have one response from Toyota yesterday morning, which was a request to click on another conformation link to see if I got a different sort of error message (it was the same one, unsurprisingly).

See if you can get the order number from the Dealer. This should be to letters followed by four numbers. When you need to contact Toyota again, they will need this, along with your email address.

So far I've only got as far as the following from Toyota:

Our support team are investigating this issue, I'll be in contact once I have communication of resolution.

So I guess I'll have to wait to see if they need more information (quite a while, probably).

Is this user account required to get information on when a service is due, or is the car capable of tracking that itself and displaying a countdown on the dashboard as required?

If I remember correctly, the Yaris has a countdown on the dash and lets you know how many miles to the next service.

As for Toyota, it took about a week for them to respond to my query about the app, so hang in there.

You can just press repeated short presses the trip button/reset button until service miles is displayed.  Note long press resets trip counters

I think it also displays when you first switch on just its short so you can miss it.
