Hey everyone, I’ve got an 04 GX 470 that I recently did a t-case swap on. Long story short, the old case had the common problem of leaking at the o-ring seal and the thing was dry when I got it from the dealer. That, or they just didn’t refill the case when they drained it. Regardless, it damaged the case and I swapped it with a used one in my garage.
However, now the center diff won’t lock on the new case. I’ve read around that if there’s oil in the actuator the thing can’t engage correctly. It’s also possible that it sat for a long time and froze. I still have the old functioning actuator. Do you think the car has to relearn how to lock it since it was disconnected, or is it a faulty actuator?
I installed a Rutech bypass and block off plates and my initial check engine light went out. A day later I get the P0418 error telling me relay A is bad or there is faulty wiring etc.
Does anyone know where the SAIS relay is located for P0418? I have been searching to the point of insanity. :)
2006 Gx470 4.7l
Have an GX470 that has been a trusted companion for 8 years with 190k. Has worked for my wife and three kids. Was hoping to get the last 18 months of use until my last kid went to college, but the rear air suspension system is totally gone and the dealer quoted me $5,200. Dealer came back and offered a “kit” that would convert to a standard suspension that would be $2,200, but the car still has another $2-3k of other repairs to get it back to “normal”. I put Almost $1,500 into the air conditioning system a few years ago and promised that would be the last major investment. I was surprised that the blue book value still says the car is work $10k. Should I repair and sell, donate or just call it a day and sell it for scrap? Not sure if I could sell it in its current state. It’s an “extra” car and no longer needed, but sucking up too much time and resources. Any recommendations or thoughts about next steps? Thanks
I just purchased a 2004 GX470 today with 125k miles. First thing I want to do is add bluetooth to the kick !Removed! (Mark L) stereo in this thing. Also, I wanted to see if anyone has been able to change the front monitor with the newer high quality gps?. The gps on the 2004 is so outdated. I look forward to talking with you all!
