  1. When I get the tyre shop to change out my aftermarket sensor it stop the low tyre message straight away, without driving it at all.
  2. You are right after all, that sensor did not work, at the end the the £23.99 is what I used to solve my problem. https://amzn.to/2ZEPLE1 Autel Programmable Universal TPMS Sensor Dual Frequency (315MHz + 433MHz) I also find out that if you press the pressure reset button it will start the ECU initiation, this will stop TS to communicate with the ECU hence you will not be able to code. I left it overnight and tried it again in the morning and I can code again..... Headache to do it yourself and once I have the time I will make a guide for the forum as it is a ball ache to nav through all the information on the net. I now have to coding pad so I am happy to code sensor for anyone needed etc. Benson
  3. I have one of my sensor stopped working, there is check system warning on the dash, when I took out the sensor and try to replace the battery it was all corroded inside so have to be replaced. Before throwing that in the bin I connected a new battery to it and it does not work. I had a cheap VCI cable which let me read the TPMS ID etc and I know which is faulty as it has no signal reading. I bought a AUTEL USB pad to write code to AUTEL sensor with the ID4 OEM code which did not work, Still check system error. I then bought this £10 sensor from amazon https://amzn.to/2Lk20kg and tried to code that to the car. the software with the VCI cable will not write code, giving some ECU communication error. After lots and lots of research on line I found out that VCI cable have firmware and cheap cables all have 1.4v and that will allow reading off ECU only. Slightly more expensive cable have different chip and with 2.04v firmware. A few cable purchases later I managed to get into the coding function. For some reason the AUTEL sensor with orginal code now decided to work, I then try and write the code of the £10 sensor into the ECU and it worked too...... A bonus tip from me and I guess I have to wait and see how long it will stay working is that the £10 sensor is in my glove box with a big metal clip clamped onto it and it show 300kbp, this stop the check system without having to install the sensor into the wheel. This is not well documented and took me weeks of researching online to find a thread on toyota forum for Pirus cars. I hope this will help anyone who don't want to pay the hundreds at dealers. A youtube video will be uploaded soon Benson
  4. I have one of my sensor offline according to techstream, thinking of replacing the battery as it is easy to do. Would this from the bay work? knowing my luck the nut and valve must likely stuck to the rim and break when I touch it 😛 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PMV-C010-For-Toyota-Scion-Lexus-315MHZ-TIRE-Air-PRESSURE-SENSOR-TPMS-Monitoring/173924102967?_trkparms=aid%3D1110001%26algo%3DSPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131231084308%26meid%3D581570aed1f84ba9a9fadc8e7542f019%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D312534234161%26itm%3D173924102967%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109 Benson
  5. Went to dealer today and installed a second hand compressor, air con works again now 😉
  6. Thanks for the info Herbie! I will keep looking for a place to fix it
  7. Hi all, I have been to Lexus twice now and the latest news is that the air con compressor is faulty. The cost of repair will be £3142 as the compressor cost new £2800, I am trying to get them to fix it with second hand part but so far no news about that. My usual local garage would not take on the work due to unfamiliar with Hybrid system and the special lubricant required to charge the system. Is it difficult to change the compressor? can normal garage do that? Many thanks
  8. Been there today and waited 2 hours to get on the ramp. Once I got on they found that my Blitz Nur Spec - R exhaust sit too low for the jack on the ramp since they don't have the tyre I need Jim is going to call me back tomorrow for the price of the tyre and I will return there next week and may have to take off the back box while on the ramp China
  9. I am heading there now to have a look and see what equipment they have. Most likely I will get it done there next saturday as they need to order the F1s. Will post the print out here too. China
  10. Hi, I have uneven wear on the rear tyre, the inner edge is bald. I am planning to put some Eagle F1 on it but I don't want the same thing happen to it six month down the line. Goodwin which is 1 mile from me can do full geo and rear camber adjust and I think thats what I need. A lot of ppl heer recommand Tony in Watford? 98 pounds for geo check and all adjustment 4 wheels if needed. Eagle F1, 255/40/17 for 100 + Vat each sounds good? BTW I have a Toyota Supra TT China
