  1. Gonna get a new Supra. Decision made. Its time to be silly before I get too old and boring. Has anyone managed to negotiate a deal to get a discount other than the 'throw in the waxing' or a 'free service'? Thanks in anticipation.
  2. Afternoon all. I purchased a S/H secondary fusebox with a view to fixing a central locking issue (located behind the glove box). The good news is that my central locking now works again but only with a physical key. I can't get the proximity key to pair back with the locks. As there is no lock barrel in my 2010 Avensis (it is push button start only), I cant try any of the pairing fixes listed on the forum. I have various versions of Techstream but non have the Avensis listed in the drop downs. My knowledge of Techstream is very limited and I dont want to try and reprogram the keys in case I lose the ability to start the vehicle. There is the nagging feeling at the back of my mind that the ECU in the replacement fusebox may be at fault but I am not prepared to pay for a new one at £700 for a car that is 10 years old. Can anyone offer advice please?
  3. Thanks for the response. I am working on it. I have the lead and software. Unfortunately, the version I have doesnt have my car as an option in the dropdown. I think the Avensis was Europe only. My version of Techstream must originate from elsewhere in the world. If anyone has the relavant version, I would be eternally grateful.
  4. I have partly resolved the issue other Toyota users have experienced with their central locking failing apart from the boot. This issue lies within the secondary fusebox located under the glove box. Totota quoted £700 for a replacement. I have picked up a used one on eBay for £20. My central locking is now fully functional again. However, I can only gain entry via the emergency key blade within the fob. Can anyone explain how to re pair the remote with the car. The ignition is fine and Dandy. My key is the proximity type and car is push button with no key barrel. This makes it impossible to follow the instructions posted that involves opening and clossing doors etc with the key in the ignition.
  5. Its an old much visited subject.... I have an Avensis 2010 with smary key entry and touch button ignition. Does anyone have the proceedure to pair the key with the central locking please? I can get in the car and unlock using the key blade. As there is no physical lock barrel its not possible to follow the suggestions within the forum. The car starts fine, I just cant lock and unlock the doors with my remote. Thanks
  6. Hi Pete. Thanks for the rapid response. The jump start always fixes the problem. However, as I mentioned, the car was stood in the open for 5 days while we were away and thankfully started first attempt. The dealer insists the battery was checked and OK. I do have a nagging feeling that you are right. Just out of interest, do you know if the battery is covered in the 5 year warranty? As you would expect, dealers don't want to offer anything unless they have to. A final thought. Would there no be something on the dash display along the lines of 'check battery' when the fault occurs?
  7. Hi All. I was wondering if any members have had a similar experience to me or can offer advice. About 6 weeks ago I tried to start my 2010 Avensis. All the lights and fan etc kicked into life but the engine didn't start and there was a high frequency rattling/ vibrating from within. The display said Check VSC. I then jump started my car without any further issues for a couple more weeks. The problem then occurred a further 4 times over a period of time. I finally took it into Moons in Wigan yesterday. After 4 hours, I got a call to say they couldn't find anything wrong with the vehicle. The computer log hadn't recorded any fault. To add insult to injury, they also suggested I took it away and when it next happened, call the AA!!!!!! To say I was upset is an understatement. Especially when I have been a loyal customer for over 10 years. Moon's have quite happily taken my money for new purchases and annual servicing. I understand that intermittent problems are the hardest to trace. They have now agreed to keep the car for a few days to see if the problem surfaces again. I asked if they had run a check on the battery and was told it was fine. I suspected that this couldn't be the cause as the car had been left standing for 5 days and started first time. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem? Thanks in anticipation.
  8. Hi All. First time posting on the Toyota board. I am currently driving my fourth Avensis and until about six weeks ago, have never had any issues. I now have a fairly serious problem that my local dealer is trying to fob me off with. I will post the details on general forum with a view to getting some feedback and advice. Thanks in anticipation.
