Mark Posted July 28, 2019 Share Posted July 28, 2019 Like an idiot i found a cheap alphard 2.4l e-four hybrid with issues i thought i could fix engine management light was on as was red engine light with ! throught it found a fault code reader for £100 iCarsoft i905 Fault Code Reader Toyota / Lexus / Isuzu works a treat .Anyway the hybrid system didnt seem to charge and then had burning smell coming from under passanger seat , pulled the hybrid socket and disconnected the battery , went through YOUTUBE looking for hybrid battery repair didnt look to hard so off i went ,seats out centre console out seat bracket out finally got to hybrid batttery anyway to cut a long story short one of the 30 batteries had go bang and blown a small hole in itself and slightly damaged the one next to it no probs ordered two replacements no probs refitted it back together leaving seats and frame out just in case and gingerly turned the key everything to my surprise worked checked everything all good cheap fix for the first problem only £48. the next problem is MOT failure with high emissions ive changed o2 sensor fault code of P1346 vvt camshaft sensor, changed this as well, the orange engine management light comes on after a few minuites after start up and goes out after the ignition is switched off .Could there be an underlying problem with the camshaft or the wiring loom im running our of ideas , thinking of putting another cat in to help reduce the emissions just to get it throught the MOT my patience is wearing a bit thin its a lovely motor and all i want is it on the road hopefully someone out there may have some ideas Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
