    P1249 Stored And Mil

    Hi again, So I bought a Delphi scan tool and it shows a different code... It is a P1251 - Turbo Regulator. I pulled out the E-VRV (VACUUM REGULATING VALVE) today. Checked the continuity with an ohm meter as specified in the Toyota repair manuals. All the numbers are good, the only thing is it looks like one of the ports is snapped off. Here's a photo how a good one should look: Here's how mine looks: As you see the little cup thing is missing. I am not sure if this would cause a P1251 appearing, however I was looking at a used replacement on eBay and it was also broken exactly like mine is :(

    Well I've read the codes twice and I swear it said P1249. When it comes on again I will double check

    Yes, P1249 for sure
  4. Hi all, My 2005 Corolla Verso 2.0 D4D got the MIL on. I scanned the DTCs and code P1249 came up. I can't really find much info about this code. Any ideas what it is? Thanks in advance
  5. When you attempt to close/open the window, does the motor make noise? To take out the window regulator, you will need to remove the door card. Then you will need to remove the small window beside the window that opens, there is a screw for that under the door rubbers right above the small mirror.
  6. I found another radio from a Yaris in a scrap yard for €20 (just the bare box with cassette and preset number buttons). Installed it and it works fine again. I've heard it's a common fault with the 99' radios.
  7. Hi, I bought a 99' Yaris but there is no FM station reception. AM stations work fine and so do CDs, but when scanning for FM channels, none are found. I tried putting in a few frequencies that I know, but I can just barely hear them with lots of static noise. I was wondering, does anyone know a specific fix? I took out the radio and everything seems fine with the wiring. I would be willing to do some soldering if anyone knows the exact problem. Thanks!
  8. Sorry for late replies. I don't have any pictures at the moment but I will get some if I'm taking out the radio any time soon. If you try to do this yourself, trust me it's much easier than it sounds. Before doing this I thought that I will need to solder wires and stuff, but it really was just taking out the old radio with fascia, putting new radio into the new fascia, connecting 1 ISO cable (Toyota cable to ISO converter for a couple of pounds from eBay) and then putting it all back together!
  9. According to my AutoData check, your car needs 5W-30 oil with CF/B1 or B3 specification so I think that the website is wrong.
  10. Hi people, I've decided to blank off my EGR valve to restore some of the power from the engine and stop the black smoke popping out of the exhaust all the time. From what I saw I will need to make a gasket for the 2 hoses here: http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a97/bigadz7/EGR%20valve/DSCF5077-1600.jpg Has anyone done this? I want to do it but I'm afraid that the ECU might show an engine fault error or go into limp mode.
  11. Hi, I installed the radio a long time ago. All that I needed was a Toyota to ISO radio connector from eBay. One end is black the other is the same as the back socket of the stock radio. You just plug it in and it works right away. No wire soldering or anything. Place the fascia back and it's good to go. Install time was about 30 mins.
  12. Alright, so I risked it and bought the radio. Now all I MOSTLY need is the wiring diagram that shows which wire is for what on the factory radio.
  13. Hi, I was wondering how hard is it to swap the standard radio for a double din touchscreen? I am able to take it apart and all, it's just the replacement method. Firstly I'll need a fascia with a hole in it. There are plenty on eBay but some don't have a cage in which the stereo sits in. Do I need the cage or not? Also some fascias come with some converter wires. Do I need those? Here's one with the wires: http://www.ebay.ie/itm/DFPK-11-11-S-TOYOTA-COROLLA-VERSO-SILVER-FASCIA-PACKAGE-SURROUND-STEREO-KIT-T18-/180780289123?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item2a17584c63#ht_1402wt_1082 Can I just solder the wires or something instead of buying adapters and all that stuff? Regarding the double din radio, I want to get this: http://www.dinodirect.com/touch-screen-car-dvd-player-system-gps-navigator-7in-sl-6735-gt-2-001-currency-EUR.html Also how do I find out which cable is which on the main radio cable that is in the stock radio? I know the main connector is the very right one which has all the speaker cables and 12V power. Does anyone know what wire colour is for what? Also I noticed, if the stock radio is not in the car, I cannot use the buttons that control the display on the speedo which shows mileage, fuel consumption etc. Is there any way I can fix this? If you have any tips or anything I've missed please let me know! Thanks!
  14. Hi, I've a 2005 Corolla Verso and there is a problem with the radio. Sometimes it works and sometimes the illumination goes out, it makes a noise in the speakers and radio stops working (no audio or light, but still controllable). I've heard this is a common problem but can't find any solution? Any ideas?
