Hi, we were just wondering if you are still having trouble with your 200 series going into limp mode ?  If not, how did you fix it. ? Our car is doing it  & 2 dealers are unable to tell us exactly why.  They say the codes are coming up that it is the turbo, but a turbo specialist (hasn't seen the vehicle yet, over 4 hrs away)  has asked us details about the turbo & what it is & isn't doing.  The car isn't showing any signs of a problem, but just goes into limp mode when it feels like it.  One dealer thought they had fixed the problem, but 20kms down the road it did it again.  Tried to contact the previous owner to see if they had any problems, but no luck.  We phoned the dealer who had done all the previous services, but were told due to confidentiality, they couldn't help us. We asked questions before on this site, but didn't get any real comebacks.

The car was traded with fault still in it as toyota could not fix it They were leading to a us turbo 10k plus  As a gut feeling l first would check all extras especially the tow pack are correctly wired to toyota standards The rear harness should go through a controller which talks to the main computer  I believe it is a computer glitch
