On my last trip I had an EDS connected to my 2010 landcruiser ute. When a wire was damaged to the crankcase sensor there was no reading for an error code and yet when using a mechanics scanner it showed the error. I reconnected the EDS still with no result. I have sent 3 emails to the EDS supplier with no reply as yet.(over 1 week). Has any one used the particular brand and been able to find any error codes.

Thanks Sludgie

Can't quite see what this reply had to do with my post. I owned a 75 series troopy for 15 years, however would take the v8 over the 6cylinder any time.

Hi
Scan tools /diagnostic tools donot at times serve an accurate answer up to the operator.
Typically gives u an area to first start looking . They cannot be 100% relied upon . Many times there has been a symptom and cause .
Try and tell a dealership there diagnostics are not registering at crank speed and the injectors are not firing in a Direct injection diesel ute to start vehicle . That cannot be tru ha ha ha

Hi there Swampy, this sounds like an issue our friends have at presentbwith their ute. It cuts out when they stop at lights etc and then wont start unless they get out and manually pump ip the fuel. However now has refused to start at all and is currently parked up waiting for Monday to go to a dealer for a diagnostic. Any ideas would be very helpful. The issue has been on going for a while now. Not fun when towing a large van which is their home.

HI
Internet considerations aside but, I had an idle motor [petrol v6] go open circuit at traffic lights and engine stopped , yet u could idle it all day in a workshop . The cause was heat soak [the spike in temp] that occurred after driving .No workshop manual or diagnostic tool could pick that up .

Sounds like fuel solenoid is dying or dead .All the basics must be ticked off first ,clean tank clean fuel ,tank breathers ,fuel leaks ,bypass remote filter housing [letting air in by plunger ][temporarily fit clear line and inspect ] fully serviced ,owner and crash history .

Hi Sludgie, I have just encountered the infamous "check VSC system" message in my 200 series cruiser. I scanned with a bluetooth OBDII tool with android app and found nothing. I purchased a techstream and mini vci cable package from Ebay ($30) (the program Toyota dealerships use) and found the error codes immediately. More and more manufacturers are making it harder and harder for anyone apart from them to maintain their products. I took it to my mechanic who fixed the problem with my ABS for $210. Any Toyota dealership were going to charge $160/hr just to find the error codes. No wonder they lose all their business!!!

Thanks for the info Andy, I may be doing the ebay trip myself. Most dealerships seem to think that we drive on bitumen and are within cooee of a town or mechanic. This does not help when we can't get the car started to get to anyone and I am bloody sure no mechanic is going to travel 200 or so kilometres across bush to find me.

When you say you reconnected the scanner and no error code, do you mean
you read for any error codes and didn'y get a result?

What brand is the scanner?

Yes ,that is correct. The scanner at no time showed any error code even when I set the scanner to find the problem .The scanner is the one being promoted by Berrima Diesel.
