  1. Basically the issue is at night intermittently the dashboard lights dont come on straight away the headlights come on fine as normal however the dashboard (instrument lights) dont! The full beam light works however things like the speedo and heater, radio aren’t light up? They might come on 5 seconds later or it might be 5mins later. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this. I have checked the fuses and relay's etc they seem ok? Should I replace them?? Any advice would be a great help as im stuck with this one? Thanks. Oli
  2. Wondering if anyone can help. Driving to work this morning, suddenly out of no where TRC light on dash starts flashing along with engine light :( Engine still running ok and sounding ok but clearly not all is well as I pulled over as soon as i could and stopped turned it off and then a lovely trail of brownish water appeared from under the engine. I couldn’t quite make out where it was coming from didn’t look like the radiator but was just coming from the undertray. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone and they know or have any idea what it might be?? Any help would be massively appreciated. Cheers Oli
  3. Hi. Last month my power steering pump started to make a terrible squealing noise, it has got to a point now where the shame of the noise is getting to me and its time i changed it.. Its exceptionally noisy first thing when its cold, once its warmed up it gets better'ish.. Its definately the pump the fluid is A ok i changed that and there is no air in it for sure. Has anyone changed theirs or have any idea how much I should be looking to pay? There are used ones on eBay for around £30 - £60 or should I only buy new? Cheers. Oli
  4. Lovely start to the year, started my car fine then drove down the drive and cut out on me. Now the battery seems to be dead ive changed that, still it wont start seems as if there is no fuel getting to the engine and there is definately fuel in the car, also the security light keeps flashing and im not sure if it did this before? Any ideas on this one would be much appreciated. Cheers guys & Happy New Year!
  5. What's is the world coming to these days :D
  6. Afraid not, i took the cd player out and there were 7 discs crammed into the changer, I managed to remove 4 however there are 3 still stuck in there. Im planning on taking it out again and removing the last 3. However you seem to have to remove all power then the changer goes through a reset process reads all disks and you can then remove them 1 by 1. Seems the only resolution is to replace the OEM with a aftermarket one.
  7. I get 35mpg easily in a IS200 Sport manual, i get ridiculed for MPG but hay i wouldn’t swap my baby.
  8. Welcome to the OEM stereo hell, im in the same boat as yourself seems aftermarket is the only way. :(
  9. Stay away from CAT D's bad news, if you buy it you'll never be able to sell it. Ive seen it happen so many times.
  10. Yeah I thought the same to be honest. Yeah I know, seems the only option although I know, extra hassle with the amp by-pass lead and the fact i have Sat Nav as well.. Lovely job!! :D
  11. Hi, I was just wondering what do the little numbers actually mean? My stereo is a 13904 from a Xreg 2000 Sport. Does it mean i can only replace it with a stereo with the same number?? What numbers will work?? I know there is obviously a difference with the ones with a CD slot at the top and ones at the bottom. I’m so confused!! Seems the only safe way is an aftermarket CD player but im fighting it as I want to keep the OEM one. Cheers Oli
  12. Hopefully someone can help me, I am thinking about getting a private plate however i have noticed that the rear plate is larger than the normal size plates (front one). Has anyone or does anyone know where to get a rear plate from, i presume the Stealer (Dealer) is the only option i have? Im getting it through the DVLA do they supply physical plates or do i have to get them made myself? Cheers Oli
  13. Many Thaks guys as always LOC never lets me down. Have a good weekend all, cheers for the advice. :)
  14. I have been having a play with my sat nav however it seems once i have entered an poscode i cannot select another route. I select destination and the only opition to me is HOME everything else is "blue'd" out and i cant select it. Does anyone have any instructions for the sat nav? Or any ideas why this is happening? Many Thanks
