Re: Steering Angle Reset... How To??

Good centres should have a inclinometer on steering wheel; to confirm straight-ahead, then adjust toe into spec - whilst maintaining steering wheel position.

Re: DAB reception

Yeah, they said software was up-to-date, so assumed it was due to my uploading of the latest Sat Nav and software package before it went in.

Re: Flat battery!

Couple of things to do/check:- 1. Make sure car setting to search for key signal is reduced from 5 days down to 2 or 3. This can be done at dealer. 2. Switch off fob signal after every trip ( saves fob battery ) 3. Make sure dash cam switches off when power turned off. 4. Make sure both battery term...

Re: What is the best driving mode?

I use Normal in winter and Eco in warmer weather. Eco reduces heating and A/C output and possibly a few other items. Normal gives me some decent heat into car ( which is not the best of systems in the first place ) faster.

Use sport when I need some standstill response.

If you have sensors on bumper, you should have the audible beep. If no sensors, not beep. If you do have sensors, dealer can check volume for you.

Sat Nav also did not come with Icon spec. Just use a Garmin or Tom Tom system.

Re: What are "battery service hole cover" and "service plug grip"?

You may lose some of your presets etc, but just make sure you don’t short anything! My previous Lexus the AA tried a jump start and blew a main fuse - then wouldn’t touch it.

Negative cable removed first and re-fitted last.

Re: Rescan DAB channels ?

I’ve just left my local dealer with reference to DAB reception. They indicated Toyota ICE is not the best.........which I agreed with. However, following a lengthy discussion regarding the fact the car should have consistent DAB signal ( and company car I drive is faultless on DAB - Kia ), they have...

I thought the sensors were all at the top of the windscreen behind the rear view mirror.
No, radar sensor is behind grille badge. Camera at top of screen is for RSR and AHB.
