    Wanted

    I have a genuine Toyota Air Con kit for your car for sale if you are interested. Still boxed and unused. Cost new was £1200.
  3. Has probably lost all its refrigerant gas through lack of use. If the air con is used regularly, no oil circulates in the system, the seals dry out and the gas slowly escapes. When the gas reaches a certain low level the pressure switch prevents operation to stop damage to the compressor. Try pressing in one of the vavles located on the air con piping under the bonnet. A quick press should result in high pressure gas escaping (watch your eyes!). However if the gas fizzles out rather weakly the the system is low and requires a recharge.
  4. As a Toyota Technician I have a couple of possible reasons for this problem. 1/ If the battery is draining while the vehicle is left sitting then, this will cause the alarm to sound when a low battery voltage is detected. This will sound the alarm and prevent starting. However the battery will appear to be flat or nearly flat when attenpting to start the battery. 2/ If the battery is not flat, the Carina alarms were particularly bad for water entering the alarm siren unit (located at the lower inner wing area, remove lower covers to access). This can all sorts of alarm problems. If you disconnect the siren it will sound as it has a battery back up, but car should now start OK and either let the siren battery run flat or replace the unit. Please note however that the Carina E was fitted with several alarm types over its life and the above info apllies specifically to the last of them (ones with a green centre to the siren and a black and red button (or two black buttons) on the remote.
