  1. Hi all I am having trouble with my 08 kluger grande . Check vsc came up on the dash a good 6 months ago , scanner picked up bank 1 sensor 1 and sensor was changed. 3 weeks later lights came on again , same thing on scanner bank 1 sensor 1. So my dad had swapped the sensor to bank 2 . Lasted about 3 weeks again and lights came on again. Definitely same sensor so we have changed again for a brand new sensor and lights on strait away . Car is running fine , feel like it has traction and fuel consumption is between 11-14 which is quiet normal. Has anyone got any ideas on why these lights are coming on , sensor keeps blowing , car only uses 98 fuel . Dads a diesel mechanic so has an idea about cars . He keeps scratching his head and is getting fed up
  2. I own a 2007 Kluger, which has two wireless locking keys, and one Valet key. The wireless keys work as they should wirelessly, but do not open the doors manually. The Valet key and the wireless keys only open the luggage door at the back. This does not line up with what the manual says. Any suggestions? Jeff
  3. Hi All, Sudden noise the other night when driving home. Checked it out the next day and still persistent. From my googling efforts and reading forum posts, it seems like it is the infamous water pump. I am in Adelaide. Been quoted $1980 at one toyota stealership (typo) and $1468 by another for the replacement. The usual story is that it is engine drop and will take up to twelve hours. What are your experiences with this? Anyone had theirs done at a non Toyota Dealership? Please see video below that shows where the sound is coming from..
  4. Hi, just joined this forum. hoping the wealth of forum knowledge can help me with an intermittant problem with my 2009 Kluger Grande. this issue has only just started. The Alarm (sometimes) intermittantly goes off after 20 minutes or even 40 minutes after locking. all doors, hatch glass hatch lid etc are closed. has me confused. i was thinking a faulty door/hatch/lid switch but it does not show open on dash LCD unit? any one had this happen ?
  5. Hi, I have a 2013 Toyota Kluger which has developed an issue with the central locking. It started with one door randomly not locking / unlocking when either the key fob is used (both of them) or the door lock/unlock switches. After a while of this the door just doesn't respond. This process has now reached the fourth door and I think it will stop working over the next few weeks. The whole process has probably taken a few months all up. On its last service I asked the mechanic (dealer) to have a look. They have just said it's your door actuators which aren't under warranty. I have contacted Toyota to find out if they should only last a short time before failing. Toyota gave a standard response that it depends on the conditions etc and that I would need to take it to a Toyota Service Center (planning to when I can get a day off work). I don't believe it is the actuators but rather a fuse or relay as they have all gone in succession and from what I have read online about them. I can't believe that they would last for only a short period. I have had a 93 Subaru Impreza which had remote central locking fitted and it never stopped. I am wondering if anyone else has had this or a similar thing happen to them? If so what was the fix and did Toyota cover anything? Or know of any aftermarket central locking kits for the car? Thanks in advance for any advice and suggestions.
  6. Hi All, Recently a Check Engine light showed up on the dashboard of my Kluger. My scanner indicates that there is an issue with a downstream oxygen sensor. While looking for a replacement, I've read suggestions that Denso parts should be the first choice for Toyota cars. However, It seems like there is barely any auto shop in Sydney that would sell Denso parts. I was wondering if you guys can suggest what would be the best place to buy Denso parts in Australia?
  7. Hi all. I'm keen on replacing the factory stereo unit in my 2016 Kluger GXL. Looking at a Pioneer 8850BT & maybe upgrading the speakers (Maybe a hideaway sub as well), will be installed by a qualified person too. Has anyone put in an aftermarket unit in a 2014-2016 Kluger? Did you have any issues, like with the steering wheel controls, or any other electrical operations? Thanks in advance for your replys. Jason.
  8. 2017 Kluger just had first service at 6 months/10000km. The dealer noted an oil leak "between the engine and gear box" but are not fixing yet. Should I ask them to? There is a new (wet) drip (highlighted) but no oil on the carport floor.
  9. Hi - Hopefully I am not repeating an old post. I was just wondering if anyone has any tips on popular performance modifications? Tune up possibilities for the Kluger? I have the 3.5v6 and I am sure its possible to get more Oomph out of the engine with a bit of tweaking : ) Also - Is there any basic maintenance people recommend other than the usual servicing? I have a 2008 model. Its going great at the moment. I've seen 'engine sludge' mentioned on other posts though?
  10. Hi Everyone, Has anyone had a steering problem on their Toyota Kluger? My Kluger Grande AWD nearly killed me the other night when the steering completely failed. I could not turn left or right. The steering wheel just kept turning continuously and unable to control the car. The incident did not result in death or injury to other drivers or myself but it was the most frightening experience I have ever had driving a Toyota. Watch the video. 20170811_195341.mp4
  11. I recently built a battery box for the back of my 2012 Kluger kxr. It has a projecta Dc-Dc charger which needs an ignition signal to tell it when the car is running for the best charging. Does anyone know the best (easiest) place to pull an ignition signal from?
  12. Is it possible to install the Toyota Genuine Tow Bar and side steps from my MY13 Kluger to the new MY17 Kluger ?
  13. Hi everyone, I recently purchased a 2015 Kluger GXL and had some of the toyota accessories installed a week or so after pickup as they weren't ready yet. The accessories installed were front parking sensors, tow bar, roof racks and tinting. When i picked up the car, all the toyota link services worked fine (weather, fuel finder, local search etc), however after the accessories have been installed it seems that the Kluger can no longer use the GPS from my phone, so the services like fuel finder and local search just default to me being in Melbourne. I've taken it back to Toyota for it's 1000km service, and called the Toyota link hotline but there doesn't appear to be anyone who knows what the issue is. I've tried removing the battery for over half an hour, i've reinstalled the iPhone app, i've deleted all the personal data from the Kluger's media unit and setup everything from scratch but nothing has made any difference. Any assistance would be great. Regards,
  14. HI We are looking to convert our 2012 KX-S Kluger to LPG Gas. We have 102,000kms on the clock, we love the space and extra's the Kluger offers and don't want to swap to a new smaller car as we have teenage boys who are taller than us! However the Kluger loves the petrol and with all the city stop start driving it is costing us about $80 a week in fuel. Has anyone converted to LPG gas recently and what was the outcome?
  15. Hi all, My sister has a 2010 Kluger (Australia). It was run low an oil and is now making a nasty rattling noise which seems to worst at idle. It's been like this for a few thousand k's without getting noticeably worse. Toyota has said it needs a new engine. Although a 3rd part mechanic thinks he can replace the cam chain and tensioner and it should solve it for $3k but it involves removing the engine. Do you need to remove the engine to change the cam chain and tensioner in these? Is that an OK price to do it? Would you take the gamble?
  16. Hey there, I am new to the forum. I am looking for a used Kluger under $15000. I just saw a 2005 model, and it looked way smaller in the boot than my friend's 2009 model. Was I mistaken? Does anyone know whether they grew a lot in the later 2000s ? Thanks in advance. jo
  17. Hi, Looking at a Kluger AWD. We currently tow a 1.5 tonne Bayliner and hubby is concerned with the Kluger's ability to pull the boat in and out of the water. Does anyone have any experience with this? Was the Kluger able to handled it well? Thanks in advance!
  18. Just bought a new Kluger last week. The multimedia system prompts that an update needs to be done. Tried many times, the update is stuck at 82%. Anyone had the same problem? If there a fix for that?
  19. Hi guys, I own a Kluger Grande which I had driven for about 90.000KM already. I frequently use its built-in GPS to navigate around. I think I have the 14 Map DVD. I don't know what happen but the streets' names suddenly disappear. Only freeways and main streets' names are currently showing on the screen; other small streets' names in my neighborhood are not showing as they used to (Although I have tried to zoom in). How do I enable the the names again? I hope you guys could help me with this cause I have tried to play with all the buttons there but it doesn't help. Thank you very much! Luke. P/S: My Nav System looks like this one:
  20. Hi, Just trying to find out how to get an update for my maps on my 2013 Grande. does anyone know where?
  21. Hi all, My 2011 2WD Kluger GSU40R will be reaching 40,000kms soon, and keen to give it a good service. Could I please get some advice on the following: Which fluid is recommended for the following: Automatic Transmission Brake Radiator Transfer case or Diff? (As it is a 2WD, I am assuming that there is no rear diff? Is there any fluid change in this space?) Power steering - Can't seem to find anything on this. Any thoughts? If the Toyota fluid is the best option for the above, then that's what I will go for. I tend to use Castrol for my engine oil service. Is there any other preventative maintenance anyone else would recommend for the 2WD Kluger? Thanks in advance.
  22. Hi, I am looking to purchase a Kluger, preferably 2014 + model with under 100,000km. I would be happy to buy someone out of their lease OR come to an arrangment for a depreciated business vehicle. I love this car but I am also a fan of looking out for other people. If I can purchase an excellent vehicle for a little less whilst helping you out, then this is mutually beneficial. I prefer to help out a family. Thanks
  23. Hi I have a 5 seater kluger KX-R 2012 and wanted to convert it into a seater, wonder if anyone wants to swap the 3rd row seat with a storage or want to sell the seat separately.

    Just out of interest does anyone have access to this? (07-13 Kluger service manual). Are they concise? I am interested in the audio wiring details Unfortunatley the system doesn't support mac so it is pointless for me to subscribe. Sorry if this question is not allowed. Let me know. Open to PMs Cheers
  25. Hi folks I am looking to improve a few things on a 2013 Kluger Altitude. First issue is to get the rear entertainment system playing through the speakers. The result may just be plug in Bluetooth or FM transmitter but I would prefer it directly through the head unit. Second is to get the rear camera to play through the head unit, Not the teeny screen above. It is my understanding that it is possible, just depends on how easy (and cheap) it turns out to be. In regards to all of this, what is the wiring in a Kluger like. Are wires/cables etc installed in the factory and then not used for certain models or AU cars? I read somewhere that the AUX wiring for the rear entertainment unit is already there through the passenger A pillar??? is it a myth? I know that getting the rear camera working involves having the "reverse switch" activated. I checked mine through the head unit and it doesn't appear to be activated. Again is the wiring there just not used? Thanks for any advice you may have. Waps
