  1. when you looked at the control valve was the filter clean as a blocked filter will throw this code.
  2. just glad you fixed the car with minimum cost,
  3. i would start by checking all the fuses again including the 100amp do not take the RAC word that they were all sound.
  4. Well after five years it was time to say goodbye to the T27,this was my third avensis and the most dissapointing in build quality, with the handbrake fault and the constant rattles and squeaks in the trim a change of manufactor was due so sitting on the drive is a 2014 Passat 2.0 tdi executive,i will still drop in to share knowledge but for now farewell.
  5. does the adjustment for the auto wiper speed have any effect?
  6. i also had radio trouble in a 2009 avensis where the display went funny once the dealer saw the photo the radio was exchanged with a new unit under warrenty.
  7. do you know when the fuel filter/air filters was last changed? also the egr may want removing and a good clean, without inspection its hard to give advise.
  8. something like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/400163569481?limghlpsr=true&hlpv=2&ops=true&viphx=1&hlpht=true&lpid=108&device=c&adtype=pla&crdt=0&ff3=1&ff11=ICEP3.0.0&ff12=67&ff13=80&ff14=108
  9. when i was in the trade we did not have all the tech help it was use your knowledge to cure the fault, the trouble nowadays is computer says NO!!
  10. i have to agree, i have owned toyota cars for over 20 years in the old days they were bullet proof but not now,the build and quality are not what you would expect from the largest car company in the world, when you look at how kia, hyundai and skoda have improved to be real contenders in the market and toyota just seam to rely on their name and not their cars.i am looking to replace my currant avensis but doubt that it will be another toyota.
  11. so your saying that handbrakes are failing and being replaced because we did not read the handbook!
  12. there was no code or warning when mine failed to engage but toyota were happy to replace the actuator without any argument so that tells me its more of a common fault than they will let on.
  13. hi vickster managed to get a couple of snaps of the avensis, i know it unwashed and only taken with my phone camera but it will give you an idear. as you can see i have the toyota wind deflectors on thew windows i do not know if this will be a problem or not.
  14. hi Vicky once i can get a photo in daylight i will post them for you, at the minute i go and come back from work in the dark so it will be the wekend before i can get this done.
  15. on the auto box it will not release due to safty reasons, my car is a 59 plate manual box and that will auto release even if you manually release it several times it will still auto release when you need it to,never come across a handbrake that can learn, i know cars are getting clever but come on!!
