  1. Ive had the car about 8 months and the batteries were in both fobs then .The remote locking and unlocking seems to work ok. Is there a de-activation switch for the smart system? and if so where is it located on a 2013 Yaris ,could I have switched it off? or ,unless both of my key fobs have batteries that are failing...……….co-incidence. Thanks for all the replies and help. Changed the remote batteries and all is now ok ………..it all works again!!!!!! Thanks again .

  4. My little 2013 manual petrol Yaris(non Hybrid) has a problem. Just fitted a Garmin 55 dashcam with parking mode (which is turned off) .It's hard wired in using a switched live ,a permanent live (for the parking mode) and an earth. I've found that the battery keeps going flat even though the red light on the dashcam goes off with the ignition . The cars battery is only a few months old ,so hopefully it isn't that .The other knock-on problem that I now have is I no longer have the Smart door opening/closing function ,or the ability to start the car by just dipping the clutch and pushing the Start button ,I now have to use the blip function on the key to open and close the doors and have to lay the key over the start push button to start it . Would the depletion of the cars battery have caused the smart system to stop working? ,and how can I remedy it. I know there are some very knowledgeable owners out there ,one of whom helped when I was removing the trim etc to gain access to the fuse board and earth points etc. Thanks a lot.
  5. Thanks for all the info . Just removed the fuse box cover under the dash, apart from having to crawl in on your back I can get to all fuses in that box no need to remove the glove compartment ,just got to get a meter on the fuses and find my switched and perm live , hopefully both should be in that box. I'm not to bothered that the box cover will no longer fit ,i'll just keep it in the glove compartment. Once I get the trim off i'm hoping that the rubber door trim is joined under it and it pulls off nice and easy, I know that I've got to be careful with the trim re clips etc . I've just fitted a next base Duo in the wife's Focus that was quite an easy job ,fuse board easy access ,earth point about six ins from box and a built in parking mode . I bought the Garmin 55 as it gets a very good write up and has a few handy toys on it...... like ,lane departure ,speed cameras and a few others that i cannot think of . Regards Ray
  6. I'll be using two piggy backs and an earth .The paring mode cable and box (I think) has a built in sensor that if the battery gets low turns the dash cam off .Are the cars fuses called low profile fuses ?. Regards Ray
  7. Thank you for taking the time to reply to my question ,the pics and advice should help me through. Does the switched battery thing make it easier to install a dashcam?,if so ,where can I get one. Thanks
  8. Please forgive me if this topic has been covered ,but I wanted confirmation before I fit my Dashcam. I've bought a Garmin 55 dashcam with the Parking mode wiring kit .I have a few questions that i'm sure owners will know from past experience . Where is the fusebox within the car ,the manual says it's under the passengers side glove box / instruments is that correct? ,only I've seen a video of a dashcam being fitted to a Yaris and the fuseboard was in the footwell left hand side under the trim. .With the Garmin wiring kit I have three wires ,Ignition feed ,permanent live and earth .What i'm trying to ascertain is what fuse can I use for the permanent live and the Ignition feed ,hopefully , there will be an earth point somewhere local to the fuse box within the car Thanks for your anticipated help.
  9. Thanks for the reply Peter. My dash cam is a Garmin and needs two supplies ,a switched feed and a feed that is always on for the parking mode sensor .
  10. I bought my little 2013 Yaris back in October 2018 ,at that time I didn't notice ant paintwork problems the car looked mint inside and out. I noticed a few days ago that the clear coat right near the bottom of the window O/S/R just under the rubber surround for the window,i don't think there is a miracle cure for this ,I may (once I know how the rubber comes off) have a go at seeing if I can fix this myself before I consult a body shop . I have two questions ,how does the window rubber come off? .Second question ,I want to hard wire a dash cam in and have conflicting info on where the cabin fuse board is ,is it under the drivers side panel near the pedals ,or, is it on the passengers side on the left of the foot well ,if it is there how does the trim come off, is it just held on clips only I don't wat to break any if I can help it. Many thanks
  11. I know that this is probably on this site but ,can anyone tell me where the cabin fuse box is located .I want to hard wire my Dash cam and havnt got a manual. Thanks
  12. I'm about to remove my battery from my 2013 Yaris ,which i'm sure will loose my radio pre-sets etc .Will I need a radio code in order to get back in to the radio? ,if so how do I get the code . Regards
  13. I'm quite new to the forum and have another question .Does anyone produce a workshop manual for a 2013 Yaris .I've had a look around and cannot seem to locate one only one for earlier cars . Thanks
  14. Yes ,have recently bought the car not from a main agent ,i used a small dealer .
  15. No ,the car is a 63 plate and is out of warrantie so any repair is now down to me.
