Changed from stock rims to 17"'s on my 1996. Had, in hand, a chart which indicated changing from the stock size to a lower profile (55's) would make less than a 2% difference in my speedometer indicated and my GPS real time speed. Well this is not the case. At 60 on the GPS, needle reads 40 in the dash. Think that's a tad bit more than 2%. Speedometer doesen't even start moving till about 15 mph.
In reading on-line, I thought the transmission, with the analog dash, still reads pulses thru the cpu but was told that this is not the case and, although, accessing the "brain" and actually (with the proper scanner) putting in the current tire size, adjustments can be brought back into line. According to a 20 year Toyota/Lexus tech, this cannot be done this way.
20 mph off is a big difference. Anyone who has had a similar problem and have come up with a solution and could pass along the best possible fix would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
I have a GX470. I heard a little motor in the back of my car running twice today. Then when I got home , we took my son's hockey bag out, and the door won't shut. The lock is stuck. I've tried disconnecting the battery, but that didn't work. All I did was remove the cables from the posts. After reattaching the cables to the battery, I just tried unlocking the doors. It didn't work. I can't lock the doors because of that one that is keeping the door open. Is there anything I can do to release the lock so that I can shut the door?
Need a little help.
It died on me last week. The flashy lights blinked a code 12, meaning a no rpm signal.
Suggesting a Crank Sensor replacement.
I am trying to get it out, its on the underside.
Problem is, it came up about 1 mm, then stopped and things broke off.
I am guessing I am not the first one having problems getting a 25 year old sensor out.
Is there a way to get it out by drilling ? Does the hole have a bottom ?
If not, when I drill it out, will stuff go in the hole and cause problems ?
