Hi all,

I have a problem when I switch to my sub tank that the SUB light doesn't come on. I have already checked the globe in the instrument cluster and it is fine. Has anyone any suggestions or knowledge of any common failures in this area?

Hi Seto,
If it a current IFS model its is a comon problem. My 2003 failed last year. It actually still switches to the sub tank but you cannot tell. To fix the problem you need to replace instrument cluster. If the car is still under warranty Toyota will replace it no charge. If no warranty get ready for big $$$. But once changed they have not had any more fail.

Thanks for the response Paul - it isn't an IFS. Yes everything works with the switch except the light and no it's no longer under warranty so I guess I will either get used to it or rig up a separate light.

Hi David,

Yep, I agree, this is a common problem - happened to me - pi$$ed of the wife when she was running on an empty tank with a full indication!
Took the dealer about 2 weeks to get the instrument cluster in, then another couple to send it to the doctor to have the current K's wound on.
No problems since, although voltmeter seems to sit a bit lower, just under 1/2 way, 14V from memory, on this set of instruments.
Good luck, hope it's warranty.
