I don't think the 100 Series has an OBDII diagnostic port - it's some other protocol, so a Scangauge won't work.

Nope - just checked at the Aus distributor's website (

Frank is correct. Your vehicle has 2 diagnostic connectors, one in the engine bay on the drivers side, the other just above the brake pedal. Both of these work on a Toyota vehicle specific protocol often called MOBD. If you join LCOOL there is a lot of information there about this.

There is a product Autel JP701 which is like the scan gauge and will work on your vehicle. I have one. It will read and reset error codes but does NOT do live monitoring and graphics. It will do this for a fully OBDII compliant vehicle. I have found it useful but would much prefer that TOyota had made things fully compliant. The link is below.

I have no connection with this company etc.

I bought it from the local guy as per the web link I gave you. It is a home run business but they seem quite efficient and keep things in stock. The young chap seems to know his products and answers email questions quickly.

I am sure you could buy ex China if you looked but I just took the easy way and paid just over $200 from memory - some time ago now.

As well as using it on my LC100 I have used it on a recent OBDII compliant vehicle and it worked as advertised. The graphics are perhaps a bit small but all the data is there. It helped one person sort out their injection problem on a V8 cruiser. I sorted an ABS problem on my vehicle so I consider it as having paid for itself. Much more convenient for reading error codes than counting lights and looking up the tables. I used to be happy doing that but too impatient nowadays - nothing to do with increasing age!!
