    Default Hilux recall - IMV Combination meter

    I was on the My Toyota app making a booking when I just happened to click on the campaign button, just out of interest.

    I got a message that my bakkie has a recall for the IMV combination meter. My bakkie is a 2012 D4D d/cab 4x4 auto.

    A quick search on google revealed some recall for this on Priusís but nothing on Hiluxes.

    Anybody know anything about this? I am one of those Hilux owners where the fuel guage doesnt go down to empty before running out of fuel, so Iím hoping this would be fixed by this recall.

    I have the same message on the app.

    According to the MyToyota website the only/current recall is for the airbag inflators.

    Hi

    My 2012 Fortuner D4D 4x4 are being serviced tomorrow 7 Jan 2020, called the service agent at Toyota, it has to do with a wire at the back of the cluster for fuel, apparently some fuel gauges gave some problems. I have also found it on the app, wanted to book it for a service, both are being done simultaneously.

    Mine has the fuel gauge problem. The needle stops just below quarter tank, the light does not come on, the computer shows like 50km driving distance and then I find myself stuck next to the road without diesel.

    There will be a recall for the fuel gauge problem repair. Technicians went for training just before Christmas

    I got the same message on the app this morning.

    So Toyota is repairing 10 year old vehicles totally out of warranty? Impressive.

    My Fortuner was serviced 2 weeks ago. 2013 Model with 190k on the clock. (10k in 3 months...)

    They removed the cluster, did some welding at the back, and put it back in. Range and fuel consumption was zero`d, so it had to re-calibrate themselves for a few KM. Other than that, I saw no difference.

    When I filled up, i could only fit 57L into the tank. I tried everything. Jumped on the towbar, shaked the car left and right to check for airlocks. Nothing. The diesel remained on the pipe and didnt go down as can be seen on the pic below.
    This never happened before, when the gauge was on empty, i could normally fit approx 71L into the tank.
    I will be phoning Toyota tommorow to find out what can cause this.

    Mine does exactly the same. The other day it showed a range of 30km and when I filled it up I could only get 67 litres into the tank.

    And this after they replaced my cluster with a brand new one in May last year.

    Edit: the tank is 80 litres + 5 litre reserve.

    Not to bore anyone, But I phoned Toyota last time, and they said the cluster might take a tank or 2 to calibrate after the "fix"

    I decided that I will drive the car till the range said 0. Fuel Light only came on when the range was 5km? When I filled, I could only get 69L into the tank this time. This is a differnece of 10L since last fill up. If you say tank is 80+5, that means i stil had +/-15L in my tank? that will give me more than 100km if my range indicator says 0? Maybe I must fill a Jerry can and drive it till i run out to check theory. But with my luck I will run out in peak traffic.

    Mine still needs to go for both recalls.
    When I called end of January parts was on back order, never got called back.

    I'm not sure if mine has the faulty fuel gauge, never driven it past the quarter mark but I have a auxiliary tank as well so the range only works for almost 700km then stays on 0km for the rest.

    Bad idea to run a diesel empty
    Always think: Could this be sarcasm?

    Has anyone gotten the parts replaced through the recall? I've been trying to since January but dealership says parts are not available.

    There should be parts available again, There are thousands of these bakkies for the recall . We in Otjiwarongo must do over 250 of them, So parts supply is stressed a bit.
