Does someone in Pta East perhaps have an OBD Scanner or know of someone with access to one. I want to see why the airbag light on my D4D stays on.

Thanks

In the not to distant future, I might be selling OBD 2 bluetooth dongles that you can plug into your car and read error codes, reset some errors and view a lot of other nice stuff.

But unfortunately at the current moment, I cannot assist.

Ek het so irriterende mis op my daily runner.. die Picanto. Hy hardloop mooi maar as hy staan en idle of as ek in 2de rat weg trek dan wil hy mis. Ek wil nou een van die goete kry dat ek kan sien op watse injector die probleem le want ek het al al die ander alternatiewe na gegaan en vervang.

My familie het vir lank Audis gery en ek het OBD Scannersagteware vir hulle gekoop. Dit is van onskatbare waarde om foute te soek en het my oo die jare heen al hope geld gespaar. Die kabel wat ek het pas op die Toyota. Ek soek eintlik net die sagteware maar sal maar weer belê in die regte goed.

I got myself one of the cheapie chinese OBD2 bluetooth modules and a Google Nexus tablet with Torque. It has paid for itself already in terms of clearing codes and general readings. It is a bit of a hit and miss with the chinese OBD2 readers, but had mine for a couple of months and it is plugged in permanently.

Just an example, my Lumina threw a BCM error the other day. A big X pops up on the display and a note saying "take to dealer". With the error the temperature gauge and aircon stop working, which is obviously not ideal. Connected my tablet, let Torque search for errors, cleared error. Turned off car and started it again. Bam problem solved. If I had taken it to the dealer, chances are they would've wanted to replace the BCM which would have been around R4k.

Check the electrical plug leading to the airbag, 10-1 unplugging it and plugging back in will solve your problem.

Someone reported doing this recently and it worked for him.

Hy sal werk.As ek reg is moes alle karre na 1996 met dieselfde OBD2 connector uitgekom het. Dis net die kodes wat verskil.

Ek het myne online gekoop. Dit was so R350 omtrent. Die software was R400 op my foon. Ek het so 5 weke gewag om hom te ontvang. Daar is free software beskikbaar.

Danie... ek gaan dalk in die nabye toekoms van die goedte verkoop en dit sal seker so R300 uitwerk. Net besig nog met onderhandelinge en probeer samples kry om die kwaliteit te bevestig

Watter jaar model bakkie het jy Hendrik? Ek het die indentiese scanner nou probeer op my bakkie maar hy kan nie die OBD interface op die bakkie raaksien nie. Het twee verskillende modelle probeer en ook 'n USB connector, almal met dieselfde chipset maar hy kan hom nie optel nie. Baie frustrerend!

Onthou die bakkie moet gestart wees om genoeg krag deur te gee aan die OBD device.

My Kz gooi ook so nou en dan 'n engine liggie - Hoppy se ek moet Toyota probeer, maar hulle soek die trok vir 'n dag, en dit net vir 'n quote!

Waar kan ek die trok laat inprop, sommer vinnig?

Is jou bakkie gestart? Partykeer moet die voertuig gestart wees om genoeg krag deur te gee aan die scanner.

Ek het al van 'n hele paar ouens gelees wat reg kom met die bluetooth tipe scanners en veral met Android fone. Op my 2006 Hilux 3.0 D4D het ek nog geen sukses met die tipe scanners gehad nie. Ek het uiteindelik op ebay vir my die Techstream USB kabel bestel en Techstream afgelaai op 'n Windows laptop en dit werk reg. Toyota gebruik hulle eie protokol wat verskil van OBD/OBD2 in sekere opsigte.

Hy werk op die meeste karre so jy behoort nie te sukkel om hom verkoop te kry nie.
