This morning I put the crusier into a country Toyota dealer for a service. As a after thought I asked them, to turn off every beep that was allowed by law. Nothing like being in a camp spot and waking everyone up at 2 am by opening the tailgate.

Luckly I arrived back at the dealer, just as the tech was plugging in his computer. Being a nosy bugger, he let me peep over his shoulder and watch. He was good enought also to give me a demo of what it would do. The engine was running and the computer could tell the volume of air going through the air intake, the flow of each of the 8 injectors. It also had a read out of any problem it had since new. Very impressive.

To my surprise you can turn off the seat belt warning tone as well. Not advocating not wearing one of course. They also did the A/C recycle air problem for dust as well.

Ilove country dealerships, much better service than the city.

I have had 2 dust problems.

1, The AC fan when put to recirculate will after 5 minutes (I stand to be corrected by a more imformed member) switches to bring in air from the outside.This allows dust to enter the car when on a gravel road.

2, Under each door are 4 water drain holes that allow dust to enter the doors. Also the rear light (indicator / brake) housing allows dust to enter as there appears not seal.

I found on mine that if you open the tailgate only using the left hand edge of the latch there is no alarm. It will make a noise if you use your hand spread across the whole catch.

Don't know who invented that idea????

Hi Alan,

I rang toyota about that.

They asked if your caravan was a "bushtracker". If so, this is a common thing with them. Kedrons do not have this facility it appears.

I hung up disappointed

I don't understand where Bushtracker (yes it is Bushtraker in my photo) comes into it or Kedrons for that matter.

I was referring to the beeps made opening the tailgate of a 200 series and the fact that no beeps occur if the lefthand side of the tailgate catch is used.

Hi Alan,

I thought that I had been sparing with you about Bushtracker and Kedron caravans some posts ago.

My apology, it was not you but "Motherhen". He too has a Bushtracker.
