Question about Toyota Yaris

1 Answer

My check engine light is on I recently bought a Toyota Vitz (Ex-Japan) and have been driving it for the last 1 month. Yesterday the "check engine" sign went ON. I drove it despite the warning. Is there a danger in doing so? Should I have the whole Engine serviced or is there an easier alternative.

The easiest solution is to have a dianostic test done at a shop you trust. it will tell you why the light came on. usually just a sensor will need to be replaced. but the test can be exspensive, $75-$150.

Driving manual for Toyota Vitz model 2000 fully automatic


The name "Toyota Vitz" has been used consistently in Japan, with most international markets receiving the same vehicle under the Toyota Yaris name, or formerly as the Toyota Echo in some markets for the first generation.

Then, I just could send this link:

Good luck (remember to rate this answer).

What does "B" & "S" Mean on Vitz Automatic Gear Transmission?


I have recently bought a vitz/ yaris 2006 imported from Japan. Local dealers/ automobile mechanics have told me that S is for Speed i.e. you should ideally shift to this one when you cross 100 kmph. Another view on this ''S'' gear is for sporty driving overall when you can use a surge of fuel for higher acceleration.
'B' as I have been told is for driving in hilly areas on rather steep & continous inclines & declines.
Please do note that this information is from off the streets & cannot be authenticated from any toyota mannual yet. I with Toyota would itself offer english translationso of owner's handbooks online.

The most likely cause is that the wheel speed sensor wire got stretched during disassembly, and needs to be replaced not. If the wires arent disconnected from the hub, or strut during disassembly, they get pulled and yanked and the wires inside stretch to far, but you cant see it because the outside looks ok. Happens all the time.
