Has anyone been able too find out if free wheeling hubs will be available for the new Hilux? How do you shut the seatbelt and key buzzers off, on the farm shooting from job to job the buzzer drives me nuts and also the key buzzer, i.e. if I am working with the door open to listen to the radio you have to have ingnition on not on accessories? Other than that a good vehicle done only 4000 kms and happy with it
Cheers

Mate pop over to Newhilux.net forum and there is a post under the technical section on how to fix them up. It was one of the first things I did as they do drive you nutts.

Claudie,

There is no chance of FWH on the new Hilux.

There are fixes for the seatbelt and key buzzer on NewHilux.net as well as instruction on how to switch off the ADD (auto disconnect diff) so you can use low range 2wd.

Cheers,

Steve.

Why do you want free wheeling hubs fitted?

It seems a lot of extra work for hardly no gain.

Regarding the buzzer removal, yes it can be done and there is a mod on the "New Hilux" forum.

Might be easier to put the window down and close the door.

The buzzer will only come on is you exceed 10 Kph, after that speed it will go out after about 3 to 5 minutes of driving over 10 Kph.

I take it you have an SR5.

Why do you want free wheeling hubs fitted?

It seems a lot of extra work for hardly no gain.

The SR series have manual locking hubs but the SR5 has auto disconnecting front diff controlled by an electronic actuator.

No mate a hilux ute
re buzzer as above, thanks and bugger the buzzer I dont want it I just want to not have the damn thing in my ear all the time. It does go off after you have driven a while then you stop and have to put up with it over and over, on the farm I dont use a belt OK for city folk but not here!!
I have followed previous posts to the hilux forum and have deactivated both buzzers which is great.
Cheers

I fix the seat belt buzzer by sticking a credit card into the slot. Any plastic card can be cut down to fit.
