  1. I think it's to do with the emf. Some people call it electro motive force or electro magnetic force. These force's are given off with every electric motor at some stage. Take the old electric milkfloat, if the speed was excessive going down over a hill the emf given off would actually be enough to stop the milkfloat very abruptly by ripping out it's propshaft.🤤
  2. Hi guy's. For any sort of damage to occur to the battery it would either have to be submerged so the Top connectors would short out. If not submerged the water was enough to splash across the Top connectors or maýbe the connecting hybrid electrical loom connector got contaminated. If serviced by main dealer I think this would have been picked up at some point. If there was constant water in the boot surely it would have caused constant condensation in the cabin. Personally I would go with frostballs suggestion try for a goodwill contribution. Good luck Tom.
  3. Hi Emlyn. Possible speed warning.
  4. Hi Jon. Had the same problem with my Auris. When the car had its first mot this month I mentioned about the steering and the dealership carried out the adjustment free of charge. It was only a minor adjustment. Cheers.
  5. Thank you Mark for your assistance.
  6. Hi Everyone. Has anybody got any info on what customisation might be achieved on my Auris Hybrid Business Edition 2016 when using a Carista unit. Thank you.
  7. May I ask why you would want to disable a safety device, as once the belt is engaged the warning sound stops.
  8. Hi. As we all know a battery is also a power storage device. Even when fully charged and not doing anything there will be natural drainage from the battery. When fully charged the Toyota system might show that it is still charging the hybrid system. This of course is correct but the input would be greatly reduced to a trickle charge until a larger input is required.cheers
  9. Hi Keith. I think you are right. A fully charged battery should be showing 12.80 volts. If it has been left for a while, say a couple of weeks it should not drop below 12.64 volts. Any readings below this would cause a on going problem especially during any cold weather if and when it arrives. Get your dealer to carry out a voltage resistance drop test, if they cannot do it there are lots of battery sales companies that carry out a free check. Cheers.
  10. Hi. I to purchased a nextbase from eBay brand new complete with a hard wire fitting kit. I fitted myself into the fuse box behind the glove box and concealed the wiring behind the doortrim rubber. It was a really easy straight forward job taking approx 15 to 20 minutes. Total cost £59.99.
  11. Hi Steve. Would it be possible to borrow your dog.🤣🤣🤣😂
  12. You are right Dave. I am soooooo embarrassed that I now actually put my head out of the drivers window and shout beep beep.🤣
  13. Give the dealership three strikes to repair. If these symptoms persist I would be inclined to return the car as not fit for purpose.
  14. Hi. I think that you will find that they just pressure wash the outside and vac the interior.
  15. I think you will find your fuses behind the glove box. Very easy to get at.
