  1. I have just called RRG Toyota Macclesfield here in the North West who are very clued up on these cars and have an excellent reputation. They sounded like they can help me out and i await there call back.
  2. So as i already said. If i was never supplied a PIN (used car) and i got the car from Toyota how do i get the PIN if Toyota cannot help me.
  3. its a common issue with the GT86. Toyota will replace it under warranty but from some reports i have read is that they only replace it with another of the same and the issue will persist. I am a mechanic and i replaced my defective battery with a different brand and is the biggest that will fit in the tray. I left my car standing outdoors in the very cold months for six weeks and it started no problem.
  4. I got my 86 from a Toyota main dealer. I was never given a PIN for the keypad in the glovebox and the dealer did not know how to apply to have it. The keypad was fitted to all UK models. I just hope i am never locked out by the immobiliser or i am in big trouble.
  5. Hs the vehicle got a keypad in the glovebox that might need the PIN code entering if it is immobilised?
  6. I have a 2015 GT86 and the TPMS warning lamp sometimes comes on when its very cold weather. I own a 50ltr compressor and garage type tyre inflator so check my pressures every week at home.
  7. I had read this too. I wonder if the value of the GT86 will increase as a result. I plan on keeping mine as original as possible and in mint condition too.
  8. Anyone been looking at these? My local UK dealer will shortly have one in and i will be taking a look.
  9. Are the sensors brand new? I assume the each contain a small battery? Could this be the issue. Also from what i understand is that some aftermarket sensors simply won't work.
  10. I have been pondering over what to get for mine too. Lots of choice out there.I want to get a slightly better sound but not a loud one. I was looking on eBay at a cat back system and seen a YT video on it but i am still unsure about it.
  11. I love my GT86 very much, it will be a shame if they will be no longer available in the Uk dealers. My only alternative is to get a Yaris GR4 as a next car.
  12. Why have they done that. I am that a new model is in the pipeline if there is any truth in that though i have no idea.
  13. My daughter has a 2017 1.2 turbo model and with me being a mechanic and MOT tester comes in handy. I have just carried out the first MOT on the vehicle and thought i had come across an issue. When switching the headlamps between dip and main beam there was no main beam functioning but the headlamp flash was working. I was not aware of the auto main beam that was activated so had to deactivate it to see it working in the normal manner. I am not really sure of the purpose of an auto main beam though!!
  14. As a result of unplugging it there will be a load of codes generated that need to be cleared to see what codes existed prior to it being unplugged. ALL OTHER control units will need to be checked for fault codes too as a result of it being unplugged. Just a thought but perhaps there is a relay at fault somewhere.
  15. Does the pump run constantly after you start the engine and do this before you even start moving. If it runs after you start moving it is possibly a wheel sensor at fault. Worst case is you will need a new pump that will cost a small fortune.
