  1. The problem was that the screen would flip back to the home screen after 20 seconds when displaying the DAB radio screen. It did not do that on FM. Turns out that there is a setting in Setup...General...Auto Change to Screen. From the manual... Auto change to screen Select to set automatic screen changes from the audio control screen to the home screen to on/off. When set to on, the screen will automatically return to the home screen from the audio control screen after 20 seconds. I set it to off because the home screen sat nav section is irritating. But why does it affect the DAB radio screen and not the FM radio screen? Another bug maybe.
  2. I don’t know how different tyres affect the RAV4 4x4 system but it was a big no no on my BMW X3s The 4x4 system detected different grip characteristics on the different tyres front and rear and would hesitate and shudder on acceleration. Could the 4x4 system on a RAV4 do something similar.?
  3. Could you share the phone number here please. My Touch 2 keeps going back to the home screen from whatever screen I am on. I noticed that the satnav goes back to north up in the home screen as well so maybe some kind of reset. It happens every few minutes. I am also not getting traffic announcements. I noticed it was only set for DAB announcements so turned that off and set FM announcements on but still no announcements.
  4. Hi, a good tip from an owner in Montana on the USA forum. When driving in snow or ice, turn off LTA , Lane Tracing Assist- Lane Centre and Steering assist I could imagine they may cause problems in slippery conditions. Not had any snow in Fife yet but sure to come as I am 500ft up.
  5. If you search the RAV4 forums there is information on DAB traffic announcements in the U.K. Basically there aren’t any if I am reading the other topics correctly From FROSTYBALLS on another top is entry...”As far as I'm aware the only traffic announcement service on DAB in the UK was closed down in 2011 due to cuts in the Highways Agency budgets. Nothing has replaced it so far. ” reading some other stuff on Google, they suggest turning DAB announcements off and FM announcements on. Then listen to DAB and see if you hear announcements. If not then turn both on and see if that works.
  6. Ok, checked my car and the DAB traffic announcements are ON and the FM traffic announcements are off. I cannot remember ever hearing a traffic announcement in the car. If I had heard one I would be looking for where to turn off irrelevant info.
  7. Suffering with bad man flu so will look asap
  8. There is a setting to turn on/off DAB traffic announcements in Radio Options....DAB
  9. Is this any use? http://manualespurdy.cisdigital.com/Toyota/Rav4Aug2010/rm1322e/MANUAL.HTM/rm1322e/repair2/html/frame_rm000001rlu004x.html
  10. Part numbers are on partsouq above. 2019 RAV4 parts do not appear to be on Japan-parts.eu
  11. I contacted Toyota Customer Relations and received the following. Much the same as other replies. We should all keep the pressure on. Thank you for your email regarding the availability of Apple CarPlay. After the successful addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the Toyota AYGO last year, Toyota have been working hard on adding this to the rest of the current Toyota range however at this time we don't currently have any information as to when it will be applied to the Toyota RAV4 but it is a matter of importance high on Toyota's agenda going forward and I feel certain that there will be further information regarding this very soon. Once a confirmed date of implementation is confirmed by Toyota Japan we will of course provide information to all of our customers advising on when both operating systems will be implemented on the full Toyota range and also if this will be available as a retroactive update to current vehicles and how this would be carried out. I apologise that I cannot confirm an exact date in this email but I would suggest keeping an eye on both the Toyota website and the official Toyota blog and also maintaining contact with your Toyota Centre.
  12.

The emblem part number is in the attached image as item number 6 for my AWD Excel

  14. I guess they should do the same in the UK and give us a free upgrade to the 2109 RAV4s Here’s an overview of Car Play for those who haven’t seen it. https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/carplay/
  15. So is this a software update for the £500 or a replacement unit? i was told it would be a free upgrade so if it is just software it costs them nothing to upgrade existing customers.
  16. How did your windscreen replacement go? Was Autoglass a good company?
  17. This is the part number for the 18 inch chrome wheel... 4261A-42140 Just order it by part number. I don’t think Toyota should be dictating whether you can or cannot have a full size spare once you have purchased the car. It’s sold as having off-road capability so should have a full size spare anyway.
  18. When I spoke to Autoglass they told me the camera doesn’t need calibrating. It does of course. Make sure the parts I mentioned on the diagram are replaced. If they remove the top trim from your old screen and refit it, it may not look good so I would advise checking that. The parts at the bottom of the screen cannot be seen (I think) and some screen fitters have left them off, so you could ask to see the old parts. Good luck. Let us know how it goes.
  19. Check this video, particularly at 6 mins 36 secs. This shows that 5 sensors can be programmed. This is on a 2015 Tacoma but RAV4 probably not much different. Can also register different sets of wheels.
  20. My wife’s Lexus has the same flexible plastic on the steering column.
  21. Mine is like that but I didn't notice it until I saw this post. It folds as the steering column is adjusted in and out or up and down. If the steering column is right out and up (for long legged drivers like me) it is taught and not so noticeable. If the column is right out and right down there are some large gaps at the sides. I haven't see anything like that on any car I have owned (mostly BMWs). Toyota could have done better with the design in that area. I had a survey for the new RAV4 from Toyota (through some other company) yesterday and completed it online. Shame I hadn't noticed the flappy bit or I would have commented on it.
  22. I have written on another topic on this forum regarding the replacement of the windscreen on the new 2019 RAV4. My RAV4 was 2 months old when a stone hit the windscreen on the 11th August causing the usual damage but also cracks across and down the screen. One crack was in the drivers view which means the police could charge with dangerous condition. If you are involved in an accident the situation would be a lot worse. The windscreen companies that Saga uses are Auto Windscreens and National Windscreens. Both have poor reviews on TrustPilot which are much worse that Autoglass. I was pushed into Auto Windscreens (AW) carrying out the work. So today, the 10th September, 1 month later the dealer completed the work. Here’s why.... 11/8 .. Damage registered with Saga on their windscreen damage phone number who is actually AW call centre. They found that they had to use a genuine Toyota Windscreen as no other companies make them. I checked with the dealer and the screen was available (~£275) on 2 to 4 days delivery and in stock in the UK. AW gave me an appointment date of 20th August. It takes them 9 days as the screen has to come from their central office in Birmingham and they source the screen through a Toyota dealer, then send it to Scotland. 20/8.. I took the car to the depot and received a call 20 minutes later to say collect the car as they need a trim for the top of the screen. Then given another appointment for 30th August. Again because of AWs logistics system sourcing the part through their system, Toyota dealer and Toyota logistics. 23/8.. I checked with the dealer on the availability of this top trim part (£140) and found it could be sourced in 2 working days. AW take 10 days. The dealer advised that it is not only the top trim that is needed as there are a number of parts which Toyota define as not reusable. See the attached diagram with the parts highlighted yellow and note the legend in the bottom left of the diagram. So rather than let AW discover they need more parts and waiting another 10 days, i ordered the parts (£120) and informed AW that I would take them along. AW manager advised they would remove the other parts from the old screen and fit them to the new screen. That is not possible! The dealer advises that some Toyotas have been I their workshop with the parts needed for the bottom of the screen missing after a screen replacement (screen fitters unknown). 30/8.. Took the car to the AW depot for screen replacement and TSS ADAS camera calibration. Went to collect the car, screen replaced but they said it doesn’t need calibration as the option does not show on their diagnostic gadget. The fitter drove it around and it recognised white lines and speed limits and said it is ok. The fitter actually didn’t have the software or it was out of date. I looked at the trim/ seal from the bottom of the screen and it was wrecked and total not reusable. I booked the car into the dealer straight away for calibration but as on holiday for a week booked in for today, 10th September. 10/9.. The dealer calibrated the camera. Time taken 1 hour so cost was 1 hour labour. So be warned if you have a broken windscreen. Make sure all the relevant parts are replaced by the fitter and use a reliable fitter or the dealer. Ask the insurance company to use a genuine Toyota screen and make sure the camera is calibrated statically. It isn’t dynamic calibration on this car by driving it about for an hour or so.
  23. Here is a fix for unable to set memory seats from a US forum... https://www.rav4world.com/threads/drivers-seat-memory-not-working.295595/page-3 Here is how to make your memory seat work on 2019 Rav4 1. move your seat forward much as you can. 2. move your seat higher much as you can. 3. incline your seat much as you can. 4. hold the set button and press 1. 5. move driver side seat to the desired seat position. 6. hold the set button and press 1.
  24. I purchased a full size spare, which fits in the well fine after removing the space saver and it’s packing pieces. The space saver is alloy, powder coated black. It is languishing in my garage, never been used and 3 months old. If anyone wants to buy it then make me a reasonable offer by direct messaging. I think someone mentioned they are £400 from the dealer but I can do a lot better than that. The jack etc won’t be included.
  25. This site may be interesting regarding ADAS and calibration. Not all sections are up to date for 2019 RAV4 https://rts.i-car.com/oem-calibration-requirements-search/calv-3101.html It refers to DTC and MIL, diagnostic trouble code (DTC) or turn on a malfunction indicator lamp (MIL).
