  1. Thanks alot everyone to be fair the Avensis has been a good car since ive owned it over the last 18 months , just this now is an headache , especially when its used to make me money with being a taxi driver , the guy I dealt with today seems a nice guy and is going to speak with Toyota tomorrow and see what they can do on the price , problem is if id of known what I do now id of been aswell as paying the cost at the beginning and that way I wouldn't of lost over 2 weeks wages . Just hard to justify paying so much money on 10 plate Avensis thats done 150k Toyota said the Actuator I got from a breakers was programmed to another cars VIN so would not let them add it to my ECU Surely not everyone has had to buy a brand new module , anyone on here used a 2nd hand one without any problems after fitting it
  2. Not been able to work now for over 2 weeks as im a taxi driver , Toyota are diagnosing it as a faulty Handbrake actuator , £1500 they want to repair it , the car is not worth much more than this my heads done in with it , Toyota are saying they I wont be able to fit a used one from a breakers because it will be registered to the original car and my car will only allow for a new one to be fitted ????
  3. Really having a nightmare with this now , bought a replacement actuator for £300 from a breakers , had a local garage fit it but its now showing : zero point calibration of clutch stroke sensor undone zero point calibration of g sensor undone
  4. Think ive found the problem , took my car to have the fault codes reset but still couldnt remove or reset them , jacked the rear of the car up and watched the cable functioning and the passenger side sticks and releases , probably the reason the passenger rear wheel has been slightly binding for a while , just been to a breakers and picked one up for £300 , garage is going to fit it tomorrow then hiopefully everything should be okay
  5. Tried a few fault readers but no luck , showing needs caliper calibrate , just read on here somewhere about joining a piece of of wire in obd port 4 and 12 , anyone else done this as I dont want to make matters worse
  6. Any recommended independent Toyota garages up on the North West area Thanks
  7. Thanks Konrad ive tried above what you have said but still no luck , ive noticed once the handbrake has been released to put it back on you have to turn the ignition off then back on for it to apply ? Is it a special fault reader , who would have one would it be Toyota main dealer only
  8. Had a problem with my passenger rear brake slightly binding , checked brakes and both rubbers had split badly on both of the pistons , I bought 2 brand new rear calipers for £60 each and fitted them with new pads , all fitted okay but now im getting check parking brake fault , and to apply the handbrake I have to turn the car off then it applies , any idea how to solve this Thanks
  9. Got 2 faults showing up on my 2010 Avensis 2.2 D4D T Spirit which is putting warning lights and Airbag lights on saying check VSA Parking and Parking brake etc Fault Code on my mini tester was P0488 Exhaust Gas recirculation throttle control circuit A range performance ( car when sluggish so I cleaned all Egr it was full of soot , was okay and picked up loads better but engine light come on again a few miles later with same fault Both Fault codes underneath came off a local mechanics Snap On Fault computer : Fault Code B1826 Open in side squib ( left hand circuit ) guess this is the problem for the airbag light staying on Fault code C1201 Engine control System Malfunction Anyone fixed these faults or know whats causing them Thanks Gaz
  10. Do Toyota or anyone do a repair kit to strengthen this up
  11. Just noticed both my drivers and passenger doors are cracked too , my car is 2010 and done 83,000 miles with full Toyota main dealer service history , Its out of warranty but surely this is a manufacturing fault
  12. Hi can anyone advise me on how to de activate the Hijack central locking kicking in at 20mph , im a private hire taxi driver and its quite annoying having to keep using the button on my door to let people in and out after each journey , my car has the push button engine start , had a quick look through the manual but cant see anything Thanks
  13. Picked car up earlier , drove 150 miles home , I'm made up with how it drives , dealer said they will be getting key off previous owner so hopefully I'll receive it in the future
  14. It's only got 1 black key , the dealer said the previous owner is going to send it to him but that probably won't happen so I'll just not have to lose it , how much is it to get a spare key copied of the original key
