  1. It seems that without any further attempt at repair it seems to be fixed, or at least to have returned to normal, the only thing I can think of is that about a month ago I had to remove the small right hand glovebox to retrieve a lost parking permit, while reaching in through the wiring to the relays there I would have disturbed the wiring to the wiper relay, unfortunately I don’t remember if I had to disconnect them or not. It might help you fix your fault if you were to try disconnect the relay and check the wiring.
  2. Haven’t got near it since, in fact I’d forgotten about the wiper fault till your post.
  3. I didn’t think about the legality of them, just thought they would be a replacement for the crap projectors in the original headlight units
  4. Check out these guys, they’re American but I imagine they would post worldwide you’re probably looking for projector retro fit kits, all you need is to follow their instructions and you should be able to do the work yourself
  5. I bought a new avensis 2.0d in 1998 , by the time I’d done 30,000 miles I was back to the garage numerous times complaining about it using coolant, they couldn’t find any problem or leaks. I found the leak myself by chance, when the engine was fully warmed up a tiny pinhole appeared in the top hose, it was spraying coolant into the foam panel under the bonnet. As the car was a taxi, my best guess is it was always hot so the leaked coolant dried into the foam as I was driving

    Same fault has returned, a quick check with the Autel scanner returned the same code. if the 5th injector housing is blocked would it put up a fault code ? anyone got instructions on cleaning the 5th injector housing on the 2.0 d4d ?? I will get the car for a couple of weeks so hoping to clean out as much as possible. I’m thinking of trying a dpf cleaner such as Liqui Moly which can be done without removing the dpf, or, removing the dpf to get it properly cleaned by someone such as Also, has anyone removed the complete egr unit for a full clean? I’ve cleaned some of it in the past ( I think the harder to remove part is the acceleration control unit which I didn’t touch) and the plastic manifold at the same time, both were covered in a dry soot but not blocked
  7. Brake fluid level might be a bit low which would put on the light

    Thanks Devon Aygo, I followed your instructions and got the regen done, on the way back on the motorway the accumulation ratio went up to 12% in about 15 miles, don’t know if that’s ok or not.

    Thanks very much for the reply, I think you’re correct about the failed regen, I think the reason is because couldn’t clear the codes. The next time I get at it I’ll follow your instructions, hopefully it’ll work. Is the high differential pressure code the fault at all I wonder

    T27 2.0d4d 160000mls, my ex taxi is now being used by my daughter, she drives short distances 3 - 5 miles at a time with the occasional 30+mile trip. all warning lights are on with the fault code P244B,according to techstream the fault is dpf differential pressure too high . tried doing a regeneration using the techstream and about 50 mile hard run on the motorway but still can’t clear the fault a few pictures of the techstream, does it look like the dpf is blocked or would it be a faulty sensor ? the car is in what feels like a half limp mode
  11. So, as it’s my daughters car now (my old one) I got a look at it today, checked all the fuses etc all ok but her description of the problem was slightly wrong. The wipers do work on the normal and high speed but don’t work on intermittent or self cancel park, I tried disconnecting the rain sensor but that made no difference so my thoughts are that the relay is the problem, local dealer gave a price of €167 + vat !! he hasn’t sold any so I’m not sure if it’s a common problem, has anyone here had similar problems with the relay
  12. Thanks for the replies, I’ve a neighbor who has a 2009 model who might let me swap a few bits to see what works, unfortunately he’s away for a few days
  13. If you have a fix for the problem then please share it, there’s so many cars with the same fault including myself
  14. I haven’t taken anything apart yet but I did see somewhere that if the sensor is disconnected then the auto headlights don’t work but the normal intermittent works , hopefully I’ll get at it over the next week or so
  15. Car is a 2012 t Spirit 2.0d4d with 165000 miles done. Wipers will only work on high speed, no auto function, intermittent or slow (normal)speed and don’t “park” when turned off, any ideas as to the fault? Thinking maybe the relay, I think the rain sensor should be ok as the auto headlights work ok
