Ecu Light

Recommended Posts

seems im full of problems lately

anyway - ecu light comes on, when i 1st start car, or if im sat a while in lights, if i flick ignition off and back on, light stays off till i next stop

took it to Toyota, they read it as... 'Intercooler'

but couldn't tell me wot they needed to do to fix it (very helpgful :rolleyes: )

i know its a long shot, but any ideas wot could cause this? (car dont even have an intercooler, it has a charge cooler)

ps - it runs totally fine even with the light on, but i dont wanna kill the engine or the turbo or anything

cheers

Drew

Intercooler fault normally indicates low intercooler coolant level.

You need to check (and top up) the coolant level at least once a week.

Note: The ECU will need re-setting as it will be limiting the power output (drops about 30-40 horses). Disconnect Battery for at least 30 seconds - or see previous threads on similar topic. :thumbsup:
