2011 Alphard 2.4 Petrol Intermittent dash warning lights.


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

Hoping someone can help.

Currently experiencing intermittent dash warning lights and message check VSC system , comes on every journey after approx 10mins of driving.

All local garages contacted so far have been unable to provide a fault code scan , I purchased a ODB scanner however this will not connect.

 

Can anyone advise of a garage or a forum member local to the Bournemouth area who might be able to do a fault code scan?

 

Many thanks, Bryn.

What model make obd scanner did you connect? Get decent one, cheap ones are paperweights (things that use to exist..). Let me dig the obd scanner recommended to me 

 

By the way how old is your car? How many miles?

Ypou need the Icarsoft scanner, here is a link to one on amazon
https://www.amazon.co.uk/iCarsoft-i905-professional-diagnostic-diagnosis/dp/B00P0YKMJK

 

I had one and worked great. Solved the issue and sold it on. It even does live scanning too. 

 

These are easy to resell on

 

You will find that you need JOBD as a lot of european OBD scanners will not work on Japanese imports.

Probably find it's just a sensor, MAF, Lamda sensor etc. Do you have LPG installed??

 

BTW Bryn, I am local, shame i no longer have the scanner.

Much appreciated Admin , I did have a look online for the scanner you suggested but it appears discontinued . Looking into the suitability of the following which is from the same manufacturer

No I don't have LPG , my gut instinct says its a faulty ABS sensor  but only a scan will confirm one way or the other

That's low milage. Bit of a tangent but did you import it yourself / got the mileage verified? Possible the odometer was tampered?

Imported from Singapore through Algys . Interior and exterior very clean almost mint although the roof had been scraped and had to be resprayed. The speedo was changed by IVA at Southampton. I contacted the selling garage and the Singapore MOT people but both were unhelpful. They do not have a system of MOT mileage checks.

Even though it has VSC warning doesnt mean its anything to do with that. I had same warning when i had a lamda sensor go on my series 1. 

Also that scanner looks good, it lists Alphard 

May see you about town sometime, i have a black 2008 20 series, i have only seen 2 others in Bournemouth so far, white and black.
