    Happy Birthday Timo!

  2. Nice to hear everything ok again. The serviceman was partly correct. There is a light sensor on the back of autodimming mirror, only thing is that it's only for the mirror. The mirror compares the reading on the mirror surface to reading from the sensor on the backside. If the difference is big enough, the mirror dims. Of course the backside sensor also detects if it's dark or not. If not dark, there's no point in dimming the mirror :) Yeah, I did know that. But the serviceman apparently NOT! He said, "We have 4 sensors here so we have some to take a look at". =D Then I corrected them ;) Toyotas have had those sensors for years in many models so they are not new. Thought anyone at Toyota would have known this but I was wrong... But anyway, good ending!
  3. The story continues... Went to my dealer again today about this sensor because it started to get on my nerves more than enough! Took a ride with another Verso with a lightsensor and it worked just fine. So tomorrow they'll take a look at it and probably change the sensor to a working one. So happy I got this sorted out. Just to let you know they usually work well and its really a good option... I'll be back tomorrow with last reply to this monologue ;) Hi again! They changed my sensor today but it made no difference. =( New service-time next wednesday! Hope they will find the problem. Had another Verso today when my car was at service and again, light-sensor worked just fine... Positive thing is that they made the gas-pedal recall service today so thats done at least =) FINALLY! =D They changed the sensor today and now it works just good! Last time they changed the auto dimming MIRROR because they THOUGHT the light sensor was in it!! That's why it didn't work after last service. Hmm, I had to point out for them that the light sensor is located in the rain sensor and that has to be changed! =D Get's me thinking when Toyota's own serviceman doesn't know where the parts are located on a TOYOTA! After all I'm pleaced now when everything works again. And gas pedal fixed also. A new inside rear-mirror also of course =D Over and out...

    Sat Nav

    Hi! Change the cd-player to the TNS700 unit and just take away the TNS310 unit under the seat. Don't know if you just can plug in the old GPS-antenna and speed-sensors in the new unit or if you need to install the new ones but thats no problem...
  5. Sorry slightly offtopic question. How do you like your car? Hi! I like the car very much. Very pleased with the auto gearbox and the space inside. I have two children and I like the rear seats that you can slide and customize for your own needs. A lot better than the Avensis in this specific point of view. It also feels very good to drive. I would say as close the new Avensis as you can come and it really feels smaller than it is. Sporty? No, but still quick and stiff enough for me. Finally I think it looks much better than the Touran for an example...

  7. Oh dear! ;) You have fitted the compressor-kit aswell! That's just so cool! Do you know how much power you have now? 210-225 bhp??

    Key Battery

    Hi! It will start with dead key-battery. You have to unlock the doors with the metal key and then use the start-button inside as usual. When the smartkey gets it signal from the button it will be able to send info back to start the car. Just like smartkeys in hotels etc... I think you have to put the smart-key very close the button with the toyota emblem towards the button but I'm not sure. In the new Verso (probably all cars with smart-key), the system will warn you when the battery is reaching the end of its lifespan. So it's not often you will be there with a dead battery...
  9. Yes, and it shouldn't work like that. You should also take it to your dealer to check it. I was sure it could work better because I had it on my T25 Avensis before and was very pleased with it as I wrote earlier. You can try the 4 other sensitivity-settings first and see if it gets any better...

  11. Look here; http://cgi.ebay.de/TOYOTA-TNS700-Multivisi...1#ht_9503wt_941
  12. Pioneer, Alpine and all the other big makers have their own cables so your not out of options here. I'm not sure about the "disp" button on the steeringwheel but the audiocontrols do work. You can try an 3rd-party cable aswell as they often are programmable so youn might get the other buttons to work. Here's an example of these; http://www.caraudio24.de/Zubehoer/Lenkrada..._3767_4266.html
  13. Of course you'll find a steering wheel cable that works with your steeringwheel-controls. I've used Pioneers and Alpines and they work fine! Just ask your local audio-dealer for price! They are around 100€...
