my central locking system locks intermittently , it even continues to try and lock after I have parked up and locked it . As you drive the system locks the doors , then everything will work properly for a time then start again . Could it be a relay problem if so where are the relays . Thanks

HELLO FRIEND I BOUGHT A TOYOTA HIACE CAMPERVAN 1997 SOME MONTHS AGO, I LOVE IT, BUT THE BACK DOOR WON,T OPEN, NOW, AUTO WINDOWS, I WENT FOR LONG DRIVE THE OTHER DAY AND I REMEMBER I WAS FIDDLELING WITH THE WINDOWS UP AND DOWN, WHOULD THIS HAVE ANY THING TO DO WITH THE BACK DOOR NOT OPENING, ANY BODY OUT THERE, PLEASE ..... JEAN
Have you tried the manual button inside the back door? Raising this enables the inner handle or outside doorhandle to be sued. The auto locking might have failed. DerekM from South Yorkshire

The current to the injector pump is short. There's no fuel pumping to the nozzles.

My 2002 Hi Ace had all the symptoms of a blocked EGR valve, as in losing power, engine stops when I slow down, check engine light coming on and sometimes backfiring when this is happening. I found out today that this model does not have an EGR valve, It does it on LPG as well as petrol. Does anyone have any idea what it could be? It does seem to happen when the van has been running all day for 8 to ten hours It is a courier van.

Hi. The driver's seat in my Hiace is shot and trying to find a replacement is as rare as finding hen's teeth. Does anyone please know if you can use seats from other models of Toyota. Would prefer a straight swap with the minimum of modifications needed. Many thanks, Chris.

The engine management light comes on occasionally and when it does the engine stops when you slow down or stop. I can then start up again and keep on going till it comes on again.It seems to happen in the afternoon when the engine has been running all day as I am a courier.So is it because it is running too hot even though the temp. Gauge stays at normal.I have replaced the coil,the distributor module,rotor button,plugs and plug leads ,tidied up all the wiring around the distributor .It runs on LPG as well as petrol but the problem happens on both fuels.The whole gas system has been overhauled so now I am and so are many mechanics and auto electricians scratching our heads as to what is causing the problem.Hopefully someone out there has had the same problem and sorted it out. Each time I had someone look at it it appeared to be fixed but then it happened again and again,so frustrating. One answer I have just read here said it may be the EGR valve.So please I will be happy to receive any suggestions or solutions. PS.The van itself has travelled over 712,000 kms.The engine has done about 220,000kms.

what is the fuel consumption of a 5l toyota hiace engine
Bit confused by 5l engine. Hiaces - late nineties onwards in UK - usually have 2.5 D4D engine. Our 100 bhp campervan does 33-38 mpg depending on how its driven - that is 'sensibly' to 'frugal'. Thrashed its around 30. DerekM from South Yorkshire

I have a toyota hiace super custom limited 1996 model that I drove home during rainy day and suddenly the engine got cut out. I thought fuel was the problem and refueled but couldnt start again, it only cranks with no fuel going through injectors. I replaced the fuel pump relay, replaced the low pressure fuel pump from the tank and replaced the fuel filter but still no fuel going through the injectors. Thanks

Hi there, I have a 1994 Toyota Hiace van. When I start the van the radiator sign is constantly on. Temper gauge is normal? Is it something that needs replacing? I also noticed that my sliding door had a bit of trouble opening and closing any ideas where to fix this or what I need to replace? I have checked all sliders and the middle one seems to be noisy and has trouble sliding? Regards Stu

How do i eliminate warning lights after renewing alternator / battery light, handbrake warning light, engine oil change light +timimng belt warning light Thank you.
Caroline, get it plugged into diagnostic and reset.. then verify that the faults have been rectified... or your warning lights come back on and you may damage the engine R Evans from Caerphilly

hi guys i have a 1999 hiace super GL with a 3L non turbo Engine the vehicle was idling uneven , plumes of smoke and no power .when i drive it it could hardly do 120kmp/h and could not reach 4th gear. i then had injector pump and injectors reconditioned , its idling 100% better but there is still a problem with power when driving on the open road. i battle for the car to reach 100km/h and the when your accelerate it feels like 3rd gear does not have enough power for the car to start pulling . From what i understand about diesel cars is that if there is little bit black smoke on acceleration there should be power .Please correct me if im wrong . your help is greatly appreciated
Errol.. your understanding of diesel engine is not strictly correct.. there can be a little black smoke on acceleration which is due to turbo lag.. this can be normal but doesn't necessarily mean there should be power. What could be causing your black smoke could also be causing your lack of power.. the egr valve.. over time the valve slowly clogs with soot and can block it completely or the EGR valve can fail. You have had the injector pump and injectors reconditioned.. while you have not changed them for different ones, it may be worth telling the ecu to re-learn settings for both components via diagnsotics. The diagnostics may also show that there could be something else causing your problem R Evans from Caerphilly

My Toyota hiace will crank but cannot start, fuel pump relay replaced and fuel pump coming on but no fuel going through the injector nozzles. I can hear fuel pump coming on but seems weak and the injector solenoid clicks when key is turned on. Thomas Datz from Papua New Guinea
If you've changed the high pressur fuel pump then you'll need to connect to diagnostics and 'tell' the ECU that there's a new High pressur pump.. if it's low pressure pump then there may be airlock, blockage or fuel filter may need changing. R Evans from Caerphilly

does it require that i keep engine with turbo running for few minutes after i switch I park
Ronny, no it doesn't.. well, not necessarily. It depends on how the vehicle has been driven just before the stop... if the vehicle has been driven hard then it is a good idea to let it idle for a minute to allow the turbo spin speed to slow down.. IT spins at ridiculous speeds and with the engine off, there is no oil lubing the turbo and it will eventually fail.. but normal driving, you come to a halt usually after manoeuvring the vehicle at relatively slow speeds.. by the time you stop, the turbo spin speed has dropped enough to switch off.

I have a 2008 Hiace D4D 2500 Diesel. Sometimes the OIL lamp, Battery sign and T-lamp come on together with no warning. The Alternator is no longer charging the battery. The engine won't cut out as its diesel but the lights go dim on a long ride as the battery drains and I cant use AC or fan to save electricity. More recently it drives OK, even for long drives, but an hour later when I Start u[p the lights go on. If I accelerate hard they may go off for a second. The next morning everything is back to normal. What could be causing such behavior? Adam
Ask a auto electrician to service your Alternator, thereafter you good to go. Theron Smith from Jamaica

Hi , I had some issue with air intake noise. Look like noise is came out from front bonnet. Loose air hose or broken hose or air filter is blocked. But I did open it and took air filter out then start an engine but the noise still remain same. Is EGR valve is blocked? Some turbo issue...? The fan motor that mix blend cold and hot air broke down..? I will very appreciate it if you can give some advice or guideline. Thanks
