Re: WTK -Hard starting when engine is warm

ok kamikaze.
Let me see if I can simplify this.
Use the phrase " ATTEMPT TO START THE ENGINE BY TURNING THE KEY TO START POSITION AND HEARING THE ENGINE TURN OVER" instead of the word "crank" in my previous post.
Maybe you can solve the issue.

Re: WTK -Hard starting when engine is warm

This is a problem that I am living with for almost 4 years with my Fielder. On mornings.......one crank and the engine starts. Once the engine is hot, and was left off for about 10-15 minutes, it takes 2 or 3 cranks to start. If you switch off, then immediately re-start, no problem. Once the engine ...

Re: Toyota Aqua / Prius question

Once the battery in the smartkey is low or dead, the smartkey has to be placed near the Start/Stop pushbutton for the sensor there to communicate with the transponder in the smartkey. The lit key symbol on the dash is normal for that. The hybrid system and its ancillaries are different from a gasoli...

Re: iradium plugs

Because copper is the second most conductive metal (between silver and gold), relatively cheap and pretty corrosive resistant, it makes for a good electrode.

Underwashing the vehicle should not be a problem. All HV cables are well insulated.
Immersing the car in water, ( read: driving the car through floodwaters) where migration of water into the cabin is a possibility is asking for trouble.
