  1. New vehicles can be left in storage at UK import centres for quite some time with batteries still connected, the models with easy access to battery usually gets the negative battery lead disconnected but most hybrid vehicles are left connected and although the ‘dome’ fuse is not fitted over time the battery will discharge especially in the colder months, if the battery is left in a discharged state it will deteriorate to a level where even if charged will never be a ‘healthy’ battery. Also vehicles fitted with a factory alarm if armed for a period of weeks can slowly discharge the battery and if the battery is not in tip top condition could reach the point where it’s unable to start the car.
  2. Do the sensors need to be re-activated in the settings menu ? Perhaps all settings were lost when the battery discharged.

    Radio swap

    Thanks again flash22, The unit ending 020 is the 2011-mid 2014 and the unit ending 160 is mid 2014 > the early head unit used navi ending 331 which I think is the one in your photo , the later head unit I believe used navy ending 334 . I think I’ll just whip the radio out and see what we’ve got. cheers.

    Radio swap

    Thanks flash22, I’m from the UK but my area is not listed, my daughters 2014 registered (2013 model) Yaris trend has the head unit with the cd slot at the top (020 ?) but the navigation unit is not installed but have the chance to purchase a 334 navi unit but not sure if this unit will work with the 020 head unit, the other option would be purchase the 160 head unit which I believe will work with the 334.

    Sat nav issues

    The antenna position was moved about 6” to the left of original position, did hear of some navi units fitted upside down !
  7. Been driving these lately and very nice too , I believe the 2.0 is 182 bhp ! ( battery in the boot on 2.0lt)
  8. Have a look on Autotrader and see what similar models are being advertised at, the car you’re looking at has a pretty impressive MOT history and if service history is good should be a very good buy.
  9. Heidfirst, starting the Rav would silence the alarm but when the key was removed from the ignition the alarm would reset and sound when the door was opened, many of the Toyota range ‘auto arm’ which can be annoying.
  10. I used to fit the alarms at Toyota but other than disconnecting the siren which in the case of the rav 4.2 is under the battery tray and the siren also contain batteries to sound even if vehicles main battery is disconnected luckily my siren batteries were shot so I disconnected the main battery for peace and quiet ! The alarm ecu is tucked up in the left hand side of the dashboard, take glovebox out and small panel at the end of the dashboard next to the passenger door (open the passenger door and look at the end of the dashboard) there is a 10mm bolt that holds the ecu bracket and maybe some sticky butyl tape, the plug in the ecu is covered with a pop riveted cover for security so you would need to drill out The rivets to remove the plug, I don’t know if removing the plug from the ecu would affect the door locking as the alarm loom connects to the locking loom behind the L/H kick panel.
  11. Ok guys all sorted, it was the lock actuator unit which lives behind the rear left hand panel ( behind the fuel flap )
  12. Hi Guys, had a unexpected problem with the Rav today, pressed the unlock button on the remote and nothing ! Doors didn’t unlock and no flashes from indicators, tried a couple of more times but nothing. The red light in the fob was showing well but tried our other key with the same result no response from locks or alarm as this was 5.30 am I didn’t try opening the door with the key as I knew the alarm would go off and panic my family and neighbours ! Left it a few hours then opened the drivers door and the alarm sounded i quickly started the car which silenced the alarm but did notice only the drivers door unlocked the other doors remained locked, toggling the lock switch on the drivers door unlocked all the doors. The alarm will not turn off using the fobs and just resets to sound again when a door is opened. We checked for blown fuses under the bonnet plus the fuses under the steering column but all seems ok we then checked for power at the door lock actuator inside the left hand rear panel where it showed approximately 12v but pressing the lock/unlock buttons on the fobs didn’t seem to show any reading on the ‘outgoing ‘ side of the plug but I have purchased a secondhand actuator to try when it arrives. We tried re-programming the keys which went well with the locks going through the cycling process but no response with the final hold of lock/unlock buttons. 2005 Rav xtr 5 door. Any ideas guys ?
  13. If set over sensitive microwaves can pass through the glass so any movement close to the car could set the alarm off such as a person walking past, the glass breaker picks up vibration such as the breaking of a window.I don’t think there would be anything recorded that a OBD scanner could read as the alarm has its own ecu and connects through the indicators and to the siren.
  14. Hi, your model probably has a microwave sensor which is adjustable for sensitivity and will probably be behind the dashboard accessed through the glovebox,empty the glovebox squash both sides inwards and drop the glovebox down, the microwave should be visible to the right towards the radio, make sure there are no windows down a fraction also movement close to the windows can set off a over sensitive microwave (moving branches of trees etc) the white tubes you mention are probably the drain tubes from a sunroof.
