  1. forget the dealerships test route ALWAYS take it on the roads you will be driving i test drove another car a few weeks ago i took it on the motorway a A & B roads i then found the car wasn't for me and walked away.
  2. i feel the dealership doesnt know what they are talking about in the uk there are dealer customisations that can be changed via the obd port and these can also be change on a handheld device i.e. phone / tablet if you lowered the threshold regarding how much charge you could use i.e. lowered it to 10% and increased the charge limit to 90% to enable you to get more miles in ev then yes i can understand their argument.
  3. what country are you living in ??? i cant understand why you could possibly lose any part of your hybrid warranty , you could be resetting the service light or a feature that is present in the system through the obd port maybe ask your dealership to make the change for you.

  6. i am sure on carista i have seen a volume setting for the flashers
  7. use in conjunction with a solar panel controller like the one listed below https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/26020161045?iid=303546341224&chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=303546341224&targetid=908661474856&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9046509&poi=&campaignid=10195651586&mkgroupid=107296210212&rlsatarget=pla-908661474856&abcId=1145987&merchantid=236013138&gclid=CjwKCAjw_-D3BRBIEiwAjVMy7JiRhYMligskwOlFTTyU1mxxFuP5Z4pav_XcPS3_H1UM8SmzihugHhoCUH0QAvD_BwE as the solar panel can take power from the battery when its too dark to charge the battery and discharge it.
  8. your car is still under the toyota warranty why not let them change it for you
  9. hi john & welcome to the forum try this link https://www.synetiq.co.uk/parts-breaking/find/TOYOTA/AYGO/

    DIY - Dent repair

    how did your wife manage to get a dent in that body panel if it where a bumper it wouldn't of surprised me 🙂
  12. i thought there may of been a fuse in the plug on the compressor but toyota have been tight as a ducks and not fitted one we carry a small non oem compressor and a can of tyre weld as the tyre weld is around £8 / can and toyota / lexus will be £50 ish for their can to fit on the oem compressor. if you do have to use the oem bottle keep it so you can use the compressor to inflate your tyres when you carry out your tyre pressure checks.

    DIY - Dent repair

    the hot glue pdr kits are ok if you dont have a crease in the metal and its more unlikely not to work with a creased small dent.
  14. good info but personally i dont like the use of silicone for the sealing of lights that should be removeable i would prefer to use a self adhesive foam tape like the following item https://shop.stormflame.com/self-adhesive-extra-thick-foam-seals-black-35-metre-3973-p.asp?gclid=CjwKCAjw57b3BRBlEiwA1Imytlrpidj11lqSCuxyClA4n2UxH9YlvJZDnZ5l-tQQciHRrWMYYsoCRRoCbzsQAvD_BwE
  15. it would be a good idea to post a picture of the guard / frame in question as it could be an aftermarket cat guard so most members wont know what you are talking about with it not being supplied with the car from the factory when new
  16. one of the reasons you pass your driving test is to have freedom so why would anyone want to be tethered to a plug socket every few days which technically gives you a second form of lockdown and losing your freedom again Hybrids everytime for me since 2013 we have had the following cars :- lexus Ct200h,honda jazz ima,2 x auris hybrids & 2 x lexus Is300h i have to say the honda is a mild hybrid and not as good as the toyota / lexus system nothing went wrong with these cars just changed because we wanted to.
  17. if the hybrid system wasn't reliable you wouldn't have prius & auris hybrids being used as taxis as already said the technology is 20years old and over the years has been refined to where it is today,
  18. have you checked the fuse hasn't blown for the12v socket
  19. how about this item the trigger wire is connected to your door switch https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DIGITAL-TILT-SENSOR-FOR-CAR-ALARM-AND-MOTOR-CYCLE-/282804208870?norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-153696-560033-8&mkcid=2&keyword=&crlp=355246904592_&MT_ID=&geo_id=&rlsatarget=dsa-764521878456&adpos=&device=c&mktype=&loc=9046509&poi=&abcId=&cmpgn=2033188068&sitelnk=&adgroupid=71572595973&network=g&matchtype=b&gclid=CjwKCAjw8pH3BRAXEiwA1pvMsezoQnPIHWIw23WgRkZveujJwO6JcPTO90gKf3Ohc1lLNzY4NCw4ehoCFvAQAvD_BwE
  20. i have seen tilt sensors that connect to the interior light circuit and trigger the alarm that way
  21. dont forget to put some side cutters in the boot aswell to cut off the cable ties as you may need to remove a wheel one day
  22. the torque value will depend on what size bolt you have and the grade of steel for eg if its an M6 bolt search for M6 bolt torque settings

    dont forget a usb socket gives out 5V and NOT 12v
  24. it may need a reset / re-calibration of the mmt ecu
