  1. I think you are referring to the seat belt lights. They all come on when you switch on, they go off after a while. Unless there is some in the seat the light refers to, then it will only go off when the seat belt is buckled.
  2. I’ve just bought one of these, it makes a useful storage bin even more useful. Don’t know why Toyota don’t fit them as standard.
  3. My advice is, be gentle, but that can be difficult when concentrating on driving and the car is bumping about, due to crappy raid surfaces.
  4. It’s a two position switch. When you pull it up, to close, or push it down, to open, you will feel a slight click. So to open partially, press down gently and the window will open. When it’s opened as far as you want, release the button and the window will stop moving. If you push it down through the click and release it will open all the way. This obviously works in reverse to close the window.
  5. I’m getting the same problems, wheel spin at the drop of a hat. Would like to replace all the tyres, but too expensive.
  6. Not sure what happens if you get a call on both at the same time, they both certainly show as being connected. I’ve only ever received on one, that works well. It receives text well and will read them out to you.
  7. It works, bit scary and you must be aware of your surroundings.
  8. I had mine done at my local Halfords. Did a good job.
  9. I had the same question last year, my Auris had LED headlights and appeared to have a ‘flat’ dip. I did buy a pair of deflectors, but didn’t fit them, despite the instructions saying how to. I drove from Calais to Germany in heavy rain with my lights on and didn’t get flashed.
  10. The company I used was local to me ( Nailsea, North Somerset) not much use to you, I know, but I found them by doing a google search. They did a great job on one wheel with curb damage. It took about a week, as they had to take the wheel back to bare alloy, repair the damage and them powder coat and lacquer. Placed next to an original wheel, you couldn’t see which was which. It cosy about £95.I hope you find someone.
  11. Car has been checked and I’m told it’s fine. Got a bit close to cars on the way home and it worked. I did ask about it braking as I parked and they seemed to think that it doesn’t on my model.

    Fuel gauge

    The Auris, I recently owned, had a fuel gauge that would take at least 100+ miles before the needle even moved. Once it did start to move it would plummet towards empty, as if there was a hole in the tank. I got into the habit of ALWAYS having the display show fuel range, which was fairly accurate.
  13. When I had a VW, I did this same thing, so I’m guessing the window is shut ? First turn the on. Then, hold the button in the close position for 10 seconds and then hold in the open position for 10 seconds, let go of the button, then try to open it. It might not work straight away so repeat until it does. As I said this fix was for a VW so it might not work.
  14. I can find nothing in English for this, but from what I can make out it is a dashcam, and I guess the beep is it turning on. My Nextbase camera does the same thing.
  15. i don’t think asking for some form of proof that the PCS is actually working is too much to ask. It just might save a life sometime. And I would hardly expect the dealer to test it on the road. But what I’ve experienced so far, leads me to believe it’s not working, and if that’s the case then it needs to be fixed. And I need to know, and be shown this is the case, just being told that it’s fixed is not going to be good enough. It is a major selling point for the car and one which was high in my consideration when I bought the car.
