Hello to all, I am trying to install a reverse camera in my 11 corolla and cannot figure out which of the 2 reverse light wires is +12v and ground for camera power from research. I get conflicting results with some saying that the "green with yellow" is +12v and "white with black" wire is ground yet the wires on the corolla are only solid green and white. On youtube most videos show a red and white reverse light wiring further adding to the confusion as they are american models of the car. I've already done the annoying part of running the video wire and would greatly appreciate some help on this, cheers
The battery light in my 2008 Touring came on tonight so I headed home in case I got stranded.
The battery tested 11.8V with a multimeter and no change when I started the engine.
I'm assuming that the alternator has failed but is there anything else I can check myself to properly diagnose?
A previous post on this forum mentioned to check earth cables and the serpentine belt but mine seem to be OK.
What could I expect to pay a mechanic to replace the alternator?
Depends on your definition, there was an Atara SL in the XV50 series that was built in Australia (XV50 so same generation as the RZ), the Atara name was dropped when they moved to the Jap-sourced XV70 series in late 2017.
Hi novice, apologies for the late reply. I've got spark plugs on hand ready to change but havent done it yet, TPX019 tri power iridium plugs. 0 info online about them so i'd could use some clarification as to whether they're any good, seems to be a wesfil owned brand. Previous owner told me he had already changed the plugs along with the oil at the time of purchase (only got it in january this year) and he used toyota branded 10w-30 oil. What is the best viscosity for a 2zr anyways? I personally always use 5w-30 on all toyotas i've owned that call for it, but the manual even allows for 0w-20. After cleaning the throttle body I noticed a massive change in how the car idles, before it would drop to what seemed like only a couple hundred rpm and the whole car would shudder - it idles now before 1000rpm with no hesitation. Since I got it i've been filling it with 91 from wherever is cheapest be it metro or speedway etc. Only been about 2 times that i've even filled it, and never to a full tank just 30-40 dollars worth due to the obvious bad economy. Changed the air filter and cleaned the MAF too.
All the air hose connections are fine, tightly put on and the brake pedal is also fine, 4-5 pushes and its rock hard + drops when starting. I've been checking the dip stick every now and then and the level has not dropped a dot since purchase.
This tank now currently has 95 from metro and is mixed with liqui moly fuel system cleaner, i'm about 138ish km in and only 1 bar has dropped from full (levin zr digital gauge). I have high hopes that I may have fixed the issue and if not then the new plugs are going in.
Rundown of whats been done
- Cleaned TB
- Cleaned MAF
- New air filter
- Fuel system cleaner
- Almost brand new continental tyres at 36 psi
- Cabin air filter (irrelevant)
I noticed that I havent mentioned the full specs of the car - its a levin zr hatchback with a 4 speed auto with 153,000 ks
I will report back with my results after this tank is almost empty, cheers to all once again for the help

Definitely buy genuine DENSO brand sensors. Suggest that you contact this eBay seller and provide your VIN number.
