Re: Can I drive my 4x4 temporarily as 2wd?

Don't drive it with just one disconnected drive shaft! If you apply torque to just one front wheel, the effect on the steering could be dangerous. Certainly, if you had an accident, your insurance company would have an easy option to decline any claim. Having only a 2wd Granvia, I'm not familiar wit...

Re: Please help, won't rev in drive or reverse

Welcome to the forum Liz - I hope someone can help you. What model of Regius do you have? The Regius shares many of the components with the Granvia including engines, transmission, suspension, electrics, etc. If yours is the 3litre diesel, then it sounds to me like a problem with the ECU (engine con...

Re: Puzzled

Hmm, I think you're going to have to be a little more specific! Any chance of a photo? Granvias in Japan were fitted with all sorts of kit, from boxes up on the roof to "black boxes" plugged into the wiring loom under the dashboard. Most of them would only work in Japan, such as the TV &am...

Re: A smashing time! (reposted)

...the MoT is due in October and I don't think the temporary plastic rear screen would be acceptable.

Why not? Convertible (soft-top) cars have flimsy plastic for their rear windows!

Re: A smashing time! (reposted)

Carglass made the comment that it was a pity it wasn't the front screen that needed replacement as the Hiace screen fits. It may fit, but does it have the brown/grey smoked band across the top of the windscreen? When Autoglass tried to replace my windscreen a few years ago, they insisted that it be...

Re: Advice Please - Dash Warning Lights

My contribution to the speculation: Multiple warning lights on the dashboard would suggest either: - low voltage from the battery or alternator. Check the voltage at the battery terminals with the engine running. See postings elsewhere on what the readings should be (~13V). The problem could be poor...

Re: Remote locking on a '96 Granvia?

Yes, several forum members have installed non-Toyota remote locking. Do a search of the forum postings looking for 'remote locking' or 'central locking'.

Re: moon roof

Comet, welcome to the forum! There is no fuse location in the Granvia documentation* which controls the windows or the moon roof. Forum users have reported that there is a 10A fuse near the air conditioning controls in the roof of the rear passenger compartment. However, if you are having problems o...
