  1. I can use it without major trouble but still would like to have the light, just to know if it's on. Local Toyota service said that it's ecruise which is after market but had been installed by official Toyota here. It has separate led available to purchase for ~25€ but all I would need is the installation instructions they say that it's only a led with plus and minus cable.
  2. Hello, I'm buing a car, that I think had retro fit cruise control. It works just fine, it turns on, i can set speed and get back to set speed and adjust set speed. I just don't have any light at the dash. I have seen someone having a separate led for it, but this car had none. Would the dash lights be able to turn on from techstream or wire a new led for it, or leds if I can get ON and SET lights for it?
  3. I have to say that this problem still exist on my car but not as much. It is ecu mapping issue and would need optimization to get real figures. Car always learns it wrong and gives too much fuel when under vvt revs and therefore stuggles to accelerate. One guy in Finland did the optimization cost 580€ so it is not cheap way to get rid of the studdering. Also one bought flexfuel set for the same engine and got the ethanol sensor with the installation. It also ended all the studders. Short them fuel trim settings were changed to some better values.
  4. That is true that you have to let it close from decent height to get it really closed. Otherwise you'll be travelling with only the wind catch.
  5. I have here in Finland one car body painter who also does the welding. We have idead it already but didn't have time to leave my car there. It should stay in 500-600€ cost range but it is much for only repairing doors. In the shop they have only said that be careful when opening doors so it won't crack more.
  6. Hello. My friend said that you can't directly install backup camera to the wires or base for the backup light on t27 2009 tourer, or it will messup the system. Is this true? I need it rarely, and was thinking about installing a wifi camera so I could watch it from my phone the times I do need it.
  7. Bonnet is normal. I have heard that if there is something between it wont immediately cause problem to the metal. The seal should still fill the gap and it won't fly open even after you have pulled the switch inside. There is still the latch that you have to open manually. On the door hinges there is no workaroung for them. You need to know some good welder who can make it stronger. My local welder said that you will probaly break the bolts while getting the door off.
  8. It's more of a simply more wear and tear the back takes. It's the same with VW products I have had for a work car(Skoda and Seat). When new you wont see the difference in Toyotas.
  9. First every polish for this car and wax on it. Shines like new 😎
  10. I know there might be a discussion about this done before and I have 2009 1.8 fuel engine where ecu has been updated but still the issue remains the same. Under 3500rpm there is hesitation. At Toyota service they say that it is caused by engine not measuring the amount of ethanol in Finnish fuel. To cut to the chase what is the sensor measuring that from fuel? I get best performance if i unplug the battery and ecu loses the learned timing. It works well for few days after that.
  11. I haven't opened it but when my 2009 got new fitted toyota service said that there has been two updates made on facelifts for it so there might be differences on different versions.
  12. Big thanks. Then this should be effortless thing to do.
  13. Big thanks. Only AVC Lan vs BUS seems to be non replacable to new connector. This might work.
  14. I think the old one is 86120-02260 and new is 86120-12880.
  15. That actually is the problem. He is moving back from aftermarket to get the consumption and temp back in the game. So I would actually need diagram of what are the pins for the computer side of player.
