    dunno yet haven't been out since getting home.

    What I don't understand is that this is our 2nd Fortuner and it never happened in the previous mota that we had for 8 years. This latest one is 2 year old and has only just started giving us the problem. I'm confused.

    Thats why I was asking - I doubt this is your problem. Pulling the park brake is a user/operator problem. Almost common sense for anyone who drives. Don't park on a hill and let the truck roll back onto the parking pawl. Same as dont wind your steering wheel all the way to its lock, then switch off your keys and remove them. You'll play hell getting the steering lock disengaged.

    It's gonna be an electronic issue. Switch, fuse, solenoid IMO.

    Toyota CCC Bangkok is a waste of time also. I had a prob with my GPS when I first got my second Fortuner. It used to go haywire. Dealers were fcuking useless but at least the CCC called back and discussed the problem. They asked if my windscreen sun screen was GPS compatible? It's an extra when buying a car. I checked and looked the make up on the internet. No the screen wasn't GPS compatible. Who fitted the screen? My Toyota dealer. Fcuking idiots.

    Its actually the safest position, if all Fortuners were locked like that the roads would be much safer.

    Ever heard of a case that it had worked (in Thailand)?

    Remember one thing:

    Just because Somchai has a sign with 'Mechanic' on it out the front, doesn't mean that he has any knowledge, experience or training as a mechanic.

    It only means one thing:


    At some point in the past, Somchai had enough money to make a sign.

    Right, I took the car back to the dealers 4 days ago as the problem was still there even though they'd charged me earlier to rectify the problem. They decided to fit a new part. Today we go to get the new part fitted which was a 'switch assembly-stop lamp'. The car is still under warranty and the part is covered. They said I had to pay for it. Plus they charged me for fitting when they said they wouldn't because they never fixed the problem first time.
    Anyways the new part seems to be working and I've now had to take my problem to Toyota's head office because the dealer won't honour the warranty agreement which is 3 years or 100,000 km.

    You should copy what that woman did about 8 year's ago when she had problems with her new Toyota. Call the press to meet outside dealership give them the story of all the trouble you have had and dealer has ignored. Once story is told take sledge hammer out of the boot and smash the problem car until very badly damaged. Can't remember the dealers response to all the bad press but she felt better for her actions.
    Fascists dress in black and go around telling people what to do, whereas priests... more drink!
