    Baie geluk Coenraad!!!

    Jy koop n droom kar. Dis nog net twee weke en my glimlag is breed!!!
    Was die naweek Potch toe en het so 9.2L/100km gekry. Die pad is nie wonderlik nie en dwing mens om so tussen 90km/h en 100km/h te ry. Dit lyk of die twee tenks (180L) lag lag 1200km gaan doen. Baie tevrede daarmee. Dit sluit bestuur in die dorp in.

    Onthou om fotos te laai anders glo ons jou nie

    As jy so mooi ry gaan jy selfs meer kan kry. My beste sover was 1340 km tussen vulstasies.

    Sjoe 1340km! Dis baie goed.

    Ek het so paar keer met die cruise control aan gery. Maar n opdraende is nie n cruise control se vriend nie. Soek vinnig vir die laagste rat en gee hom gas. Mens moet seker maar die pros en die cons van cruise control opweeg en dan self besluit of dit die moeite werd is. Ek gee nie om, om meer petrol te gebruik om die cruise te gebruik nie, maar dit maak mens ook seker bietjie lui. Hy gebruik verseker meer. Ek het die naweek ook n knoppie op die ratkas gesien. "Shift Lock". Wat presies doen dit? Het hom n paar keer gedruk en niks het gebeur nie. Dis nie dalk soos n overdrive nie?

    Doesn't the 'Shift Lock' hold the transmission in the selected gear? Must check the manual...

    Nope, it releases the "locked" gear stick. I've had issues with my prado idling to low and this caused it to stall in low range. Also happend once where I parked on a steep decline where the gear stick "locks" in park.

    The shift lock engages to prevent the shifter (gearstick) from accidentally being knocked out of park or drive without the brake being depressed. The shift lock button disengages the shift lock in the event that it becomes stuck or stall in gear. I believe the second start button can also be used when it stalls in gear but have not tried it.

    anyone know how to turn the VSC off. Does it go off in low range only. Apparently it should be turned off when driving in thick sand. Its quite annoying when the VSC kicks in while driving in sand. I prefer to to have full control in these situations.

    I think the newer 120s (post 04) have a switch below the climate control. Can someone with the 5spd auto confirm this? Krouxsa? Coenraad?

    I think the Traction control works on the ABS sensor. If you remove the abs fuse, the traction control will not function. If this works, you can install a switch to turnoff the abs when you want to disengade the traction control.

    Will try it when I get my van back. Currently at the stealers to replace rear main seal which desided to spring a leak.

    Lock the centre diff when driving in sand. That switches off VSC.

    Due to a short on my trailer coupling I had a blown fuse on the brake lights (can't remember whether anything else was involved), but this also caused the gear stick lockup. In order to get going again I used the "Shift Lock" button to disengage the lock. To remind me of the blown fuse all the VSC ABS etc lights were lit up like a Christmas tree...

    Yip, the VSC off light does come on when engaging CDL. Dont think you can switch the TC off.

    Thanks jkRSA. Seems TC cannot be switched off as in the FJ and 150. Will try the fuse trick when I get mine back.
