  1. I have the 5 beeps back again. As the alternator had to be replaced. So back to the main agent, for the master boot up disc to be inserted.
  2. I had a similar issue, bought a 2017/18 sat nave disc for £15 (ish) on Ebay and loaded it in, worked straight away, with improved graphics to boot. This was on my 2007/8 T25 with 9010 unit.
  3. It will also be in the dealers hand book, listing VIN number, model and dealer etc.
  4. Could be in the boot. On the power lead from a Reversing light feed wire.
  5. I bought genuine Discs and pads for about £60 more than ECP would have charged me. So not really that much more for Genuine bits. (worth a good haggle)
  6. Hi Welcome, been to Malta a couple of times, love the country, love the people, love their love of old cars.
  7. Is it earthing OK? Getting power to it is one thing but earth is just as important.


    I am having problems registering with the celica-club.co.uk. I have tried several times but keep getting an error message as follows:
    Sorry, there is a problem
    Something went wrong. Please try again.
    Error code: EX1364
    I have also messaged several times but have not had a response. 
    Please can you help? Is there a technical fault with the site?
    Thank you
  9. Well there is the hard way to think about it. Cost over return. Sticking a $3k engine will make the car worth? And then there is the "heart" way, cost does not matter over the return as it's always good to have a back up car. that does not owe you a lot. Or "Break it for spares" or buy a similar model and swap your good bits over to it as and when needed.
  10. Mine do the same, I drilled small holes at the bottom of the light units on the underside where it cant be seen. The rubber seals seem to be the weak point.
  11. Hi Welcome The Merc unit should have a few more ponies than the 178Bhp Toyota gave it
  12. Checked the battery, 285 to 345 CCA, considering it should be 800 CCA that means it's a bit knackered. Removed the Map DVD, disconnected battery, did my checks on CCA, refitted battery connection, started car (with no problem considering how low the battery claimed to be 12.6V), reinserted Map DVD...………….same problem.
  13. Thank You Paul I will give it a try in the morning, I'm going to check the condition of the battery to see what CCA it has in the battery (although it did eventually start with no issues) Something to do on Xmas Day Morning. If no joy, I'll just take the Corolla out on visits.
  14. Would you believe it? It's happened again!! Car refused to start, like it had a flat battery, no dash lights. Turned key off and on again, car started the same as ever. But Stereo has once again reverted back to the 5 beeps, with the display of "Go back to dealer" Here we go again!!
