Warning lights help


Recommended Posts

Hello 

 

Had our hybrid 56 plate Alphard for quite a few months now and had these lights come in recently and then the hybrid system stops working.

 

Has anyone got any recommendation/ help 

Thanks

These lights came on our Hybrid today (2.4 2006) turned it off and turned on again and all fine.   Have you found out any more about why it happens?

When you say the hybrid stopped working, did the car stop running?   I have been told that the car is useless if the hybrid doesn’t work.  I’m interested to know if it means replacing the hybrid battery and/or the inverter.  How have you fared after these lights have come on?

We have tried second hand inverters but not worked. Our hybrid specialist has another to try.  We changed the cooling water pump. It’s an ongoing project for us at the moment!

My 4 lights came on after reversing the car a bit. 4WD, VSC, ABS and the red car alert came on. The hybrid is off but the car can still be driven. The car slows down once I reach over 60kmh and accelerate again to 60. It's a Alphard 2008 ATH10 hybrid car too. 

 

Using diag pin 4 short to pin 13 on ODB2 socket and switch on engine (without starting the car) codes revealed as follows:-

  • ABS code: 94, 95 (95 is lost com, to yaw sensor(lateral acceleration sensor) and 94 is lost com. to ABS control module.)

     

  • VSC code: 62, 63 (62 Abnormal battery voltage VSC sensor) (63 Malf in booster pedal force switch)

Any suggestions?

Check your tyre pressures are equal across all wheels.

If ABS ecu detects a large enough delta measurement between wheels, it will throw an error.

 

The fact you have ABS, VCS (Skid control) coming on seems related, do you have standard 16/17" wheels?

Thanks Chris. I did that before I gave up. Finally I got it fixed from a good mechanic I know and he replaced with a 2nd hand HV Inverter (ODBII read the error P3125) The 4 lights came back soon after we took it for a spin so he reseted it. The only light that remained on was the red car with the exclamation mark. Once again he took in for another check. This time he replaced the cooling pump for the HV inverter and it was gone. It's day two now and so far did another 100km drive

Hope this helps someone.

Hiya Taifansi,

I have the same warning lights but I can't find a garage in Cardiff that is willing to sort it. They do imports but not hybrid or hybrid not imports.... think I'll take it back to Scotland as they think its those parts also, I've lost faith with the Welsh ☹️

Hi, Somebody recommended "a garage in Exeter" to me recently, I've had a look and think it may be this one https://www.hybridrepairservices.co.uk/contact , however I haven't had a need to check them out yet.

 

Regards Chris, (2003 Hybrid)

 

Hi Sunny, get in contact with Mark at the Hybrid Repair Service - he travels nationwide and came up to Herts from Exeter to refurbish my hybrids battery.

It's also an ecocamper from campers Scotland 🙂
