1997 toyota hiace regius intermittent wiper not working. When calling for wiper fluid the wipers dont operate although fluid is sprayed on the windshield. The wiper motor has been replaced in the past with a motor from another toyota and the wiring didnt match. the mechanics cut and spliced another conector so the wire colors dont match. An original replacement has been re-installed but as you can see its not fully functional. I am wondering if there is a control module for the wipers that may be bad and also looking for the wiring diagram for the wiper function. Can you help?

Hi, i have a toyata hiace 1999 model that had a problem of overheating when climbing hills. i bought a new engine and still has the same problem. what could be the problem?
make sure the cowling is put back infront of the engine fan,check if u a not losing water in the radiator,change the rad cap coz a slight drop in water levels can cause this when climbing hills.after replacing engine if problem is still there then it is not in the engine vusumuzi moyo from Zimbabwe

Why does my dashboard oil light (Yellow with Exclamation mark on top) come on. I just changed the oil and filter 3 days ago.
Just check the wiring on the unit to see if the contact is firm or you take too long to change your engine oil and oil in side unit be comes tarry so the internal contact stuck together. Theron Smith from Jamaica

My fan runs constantly, it does not cut off. as soon as I start it the fan comes on and continues to run non-stop. what could be the problem? I cleaned the Water Temp. Sensor, but no change.
I am not aware that Toyota Hiace use electric fan, this could be a conversion. There is a rad fan temperature switch some place, look carefully. Theron Smith from Jamaica

1993 hiace fuel pump relay location please my van runs for about 10 to 20 mins then it is switching the fuel pump
I am trying to understand your posting. The fuel pump has a fuel stop solenoid attach to the body of the fuel pump, when then ignition switch is turn to the off position, this solenoid stop all fuel entering the inlet port of the fuel pump. This solenoid could be intermittently breaking down, try to substitute it to see if it is your problem,best wishes . Theron Smith from Jamaica

Hey, i have a 2004 toyota regius Ace (KDH200) with a 2KD engine from Japan. When i am at idle with the vehicle the engine shuts off and give problems to start again unless the engine gets a little cooler. I scanned the vehicle and the crank sensor showed up fault. I replaced and still having the same problem. What do you think the problem can be? thanks .

Hi, what seems to be the problem with the automatic transmission when it does not shift properly or not shift at all whenever the engine temperature gets hot? I've checked the ATF level and it is good. checked the cable too, by changing the shifter to different positions. i think it is working properly. i haven't changed to fluid yet. Thanks.
Change the transmission fluid and filter , or vacuum the transmission is even better. Theron Smith from Jamaica

Over on the passenger side, there is a lid when lifted you gain access to the engine below,this lid has a rubber Lind the entire lid, if it doesn't seated properly when closed you will get heat coming up from the engine. Theron Smith from Jamaica

The bottom track for the sliding door is sunken where the bearing rests when the door is in a closed position. what is the best way to treat with this problem? why is this a problem ?When the passenger cracks the door handle the door does not slide readily because there is a sticking point on the sunken part of the track where the beating rests.
Remember the door step is above this area, it could be excess weight cause stress on the fraim below. Theron Smith from Jamaica

My venerable 1993 Hiace 2.7 diesel camper is still going great at 145,000 miles but whenever I have been driving it hard, 80mph or up a long hill, another fan switches on. The sound of this fan seems to be coming from under the driver's seat. (this is the mid engine version where access to the engine is gained by lifting up the seats). I've searched many times to find this fan to no avail. Does anyone know where it is and how to get access? Thanks, Clive.
Clive, I have EXACTLY the same question, have you found anything else out? At least its not just my hiace, i was beginning to worry. Could it be a an oil pump? Mark from Bristol
To begin, only one fan afixed to these Hiace . if the fan is the clutch type you are likely to experience the above symtumn . because of the load going up a hill the fluid in the fan sence it, therefore the fan has to spin a little faster to cool down the engine. Theron Smith from Jamaica

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

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.

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.
If your hiace have ECM change it, if the ECM is hot it will go off making you feel like the fuel pump is bad. Top Gbayero from Nigeria
