  1. Thank you Mike for the advice, the warning light is still off after using the car today. Yes, if it comes back on and I get it sorted, I will report back :) Thanks everyone for the help.
  2. Thanks Mike, well, I managed to find a local mechanic and he checked the battery voltage and it was perfect and the fan belt was OK too so, as you said above, he talked about the alternator too, but the light is off.....for now.
  3. The ones I would get to look at the car are closed, :( I started the car this morning and the light is off. If it comes on again I will try revving to see if it goes off. IS IT SAFE TO DRIVE ? Thanks
  4. OK, thank you, I will see if I can get someone to look at it, thanks just looked at the manual and it says "indicates a malfunction in the vehicles charging system"... if this is any help :)
  5. Hi, a large red battery image appeared on the dash to night. I've a 2014 Auris excel with 57000 miles on clock. Do I need a new battery? Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, I don't know if it was checked, all I know is, that it was re-gassed and was working fine after that, then a few weeks ago I turned it on and it didn't work. That's why I think it was leaking from the start, when the car was new, ...maybe not :) I don't use it often at all, only when the weather is warmer and I was told a few cars back, to turn the AC on from time to time. I had cars before with AC and had no bother using the AC from one season to another. Thank you.

    Is this running very hot dangerous? Wouldn't like Toyota to pam me off.

    HI Guys Its 4 years past now and I've been driving my Auris Excel since and still love the car, 43,000 miles on the clock now BTW :) Its still under warranty and I'm having two problems with it, so getting the car booked into Toyota for them to have a look at.it. I've noticed a burning smell inside the car and heard like a cracking sound coming from the engine. In fact I've seen smoke coming from it. This isn't the first time this has happened, I taken the car to Toyota before and they can't find anything. I wouldn't know what I'm looking at in the engine but there is a plastic cover with D4D written on it, This was roasting hot to the touch, so whatever's in there. The other query I have is about the air conditioning, I got it re-gassed at the end of May this year and now it isn't working again, I would have thought it would have lasted a lot longer than that, I think there is a leak somewhere. Any thoughts in why that part of the engine is so hot? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Guys, I've looked at the manual and cant find how to cancel a destination on the touch and go :) (NY14 Auris Excel) It keeps giving me directions I don't need :) Thanks in advance.

    Thanks guys for your thoughts. From memory, I think sales told me in order to get my 5 years warranty, it has to be serviced by Toyota, so I will have to go with that then. At the time I was dealing for the car, I asked for the first service to be free of charge, so they are sticking to that and I can get the other two years service at a discount price too, less than £300 for all 3 years, so I suppose that isn't too bad really. Thanks everyone for the advice, this is a great forum.

    Hi all, sorry for only posting now, just to busy with work. I went to get my Auris one day last week and I love it. We went for Zenith Blue, I wasn't a fan of the colour at first but now I wouldn't pick any other colour. I haven't had a chance to have a good look around it yet but there is plenty of time for that. Just want to say thanks to everyone on the forum for the advice I was given. I don't know if I should take out the three year service plan, sure, the car is under warranty anyway, whats the benefit of the service plan when the major parts are covered anyway? Any thoughts and thanks again.

    Am I right in saying that there wasn't any new colours added to the Excel model? Thanks in advance.
