Hilux fault code diagnosis

Submitted: Friday, Feb 24, 2006 at 20:20


Hi all,

Can anyone help me with extracting the fault codes from my 12/98 3RZ-FE 2.7L petrol dual cab hilux? The ellery manual says that I need to short terminals TE1 and E1 in the check connector but my vehicle's check connector only has wiring to terminals +B, E1, AB and Tc - no TE1! I assume that I need to short E1 and some other terminal but without knowing whcih one I am reluctant to give it a go (and end up in a cloud of smoke...)

I have the codes so when I extract them I am all set - but first I need to extract the codes.....any help appreciated.

This unit could help you


I emailed them and they were very prompt in replying and shipped it here for no extra cost.

Took about 10 days to get here, most of the time probably in AUS customs but it wasn't opened.

Thanks Kargar - it worked and I have recovered fault codes 24 and 41. My ellery manual says these relate to the intake air temp sensor (24) and the throttle position sensor (41) - does this agree with your gregory manual (I am starting to lose faith in the ellery manual)?

Problem is they say that it should have an intake air temp sensor in the base of the air cleaner box and there is definately nothing down there so I have no idea where (or if) this sensor exists - does your manual give any idea where this sensor may be?

I have found the throttle position sensor and will check that one out soon.

Many thanks for your assistance - by the way what is the product code for your gregory manual?
