  1. Hi Raichada, Does the sound come from the front? I own a 2014 Auris Hybrid and had some creaking noises, just like this: It has been fixed very easy:
  2. Hello, I'm using Carista on my Auris 2014 Hybrid and it's awesome. I'm using it to set my TMPS sensors each season (I know you can do that on Techstream, but for me Carista it's easier - you just have to install the app on your phone). Carista can be used on all vehicles for clear codes and customization. As Tony said, you can check and clear engine error codes with the free plan. This tool has been designed for private garages & services so the price is a bit too much. If you want to unlock customization options, you need to pay $9.99 for 1-week pass or $39.99 for 1 year pass. You can buy the adapter and they will give you 1 month of trial (no prepaid payment needed.)
  3. I followed @TonyHSD instructions and the creaking noises had stopped. A lot of dirt was stucked there. It's a really easy job since the lower suspension arm is easy accessible, everyone can do it. I've used WD40 Water Resistant Silicone Lubricant: https://www.amazon.co.uk/WD-40-Specialist-44217-Lasting-Grease/dp/B00KMRDEMW/ To access the right suspension arm, you have to turn the wheel max to the left. To access the left suspension arm, you have to turn the wheel max to the right. I have attached a picture where you should lubricate. Hope it helps.
  4. I have the same problem with my 2014 Auris. Got it to the Toyota Service and they said nothing seems wrong, they couldn't replicate the problem. @Gerg some months has passed, did the creaking dissapear?
  5. Vickybo, What I can tell is what you may already know: you have a short circuit somewhere and that's the reason for the blown fuses. AM1 seems to be a fuse that is in a circuit with the starter, ignition switch and accessory. Source: https://www.toyota-4runner.org/problems-and-warranty-issues/139437-am1-fuse-keeps-blowing.html You should go to an electrician to check it out because it's a circuit problem. Also, about the airbag recall: you should definitely go and do it. Airbag problems are no joke. Take care
  6. No, it does not. Also, it does not support 4G internet sticks, only 3G.
  7. I posted a message via alibaba where you can request specific products. Some seller contacted me and this is how I found it. Not sure if he sells online. From what I understand, he has a factory from which he buys specific media navigation. If you want, I can give you his contact details. Just let me know.
  8. I also recommend what Tony HSD said. Keep your car in Ready mode and you will not get a flat battery. When hybrid battery will be at 20%, your gasoline engine will kick in to charge it.

    Like Jonmartin said, is a speed camera warning from you GPS navigation. You can disable it from your media settings.
  10. I haven't tried the AUX cable as I listen music directly from the media (radio, spotify or youtube). Bluetooth music works well with my android phone, not sure about iPhone, haven't tested. When you turn on the lights, the screen dimms and buttons light up. Colour does not match with the dashboard, it's a different kind of blue. so I turned button lights off. Yes, it was extremely simple to remove the dash covers, thank to furtula's video link. It took around 30 mins all installation process.
  11. I have installed the media and I have to say it's fantastic. It's just like the one in the video I mentioned above. Everything works, and I'm happy: the hybrid information is displayed correctly; steering wheel control works as original car media; reverse camera image looks bigger now, thanks to the bigger display; sound seems slightly better than original car media; call quality is better; thanks to the 4 gigs and 8 core cpu, media is very snappy. cold starting takes about 2-3 seconds, faster than original car media; GPS lock is fast, around 3-5 seconds. Why did I buy it? Because I can use Waze, Spotify, Google Maps, Youtube and other nice Android apps without messing with my dashboard looks. The best thing of all? Installation can be made by anyone, it takes only 30 mins. No need to cut any wire, just plug in the existing wires into the media. Costs? Around 400 USD (~318 pounds): Android Media for Toyota Auris - 290 USD (~225 pounds) DHL shipping (3-5 days from pickup) - 40 usd (~32 pounds) Import Taxes - 70 usd (~56 punds) If there is somebody interested, PM me and I will give the seller's contact information.
  12. I also recommend it. It doesn't use a battery which it's a good thing. One of the reasons I recommend this camera is that it uses capacitors and not batteries. Here's a link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/VIOFO-Official-Channel-Wireless-Bluetooth/dp/B07F27F5CW/
  13. Of course. I'll update this topic after the installation process.
  14. Awesome video, thank you so much! About the adapter, seller said that he will sent a canbus box which will read information from wheel controls.
