  1. Ok my problem, the car dont idle very smoothly when it is not warmed up or when the weather is very cooling. Went to workshop A, plug in laptop. Boss straight away say 02 sensor need to change and quote me a price. As need to order the sensor, i went off without fixing first. Next day, went to workshop B, the boss plug in a handheld device. Then say is MAF sensor dirty or faulty, he proceed to clean sensor. Fix MAF sensor back, he say faulty. Must change. Tell me dont believe, you try with the sensor unplugged. Indeed the car was more powerful and run smoother. So which sensor is the faulty one? Workshop seems very confident it is the o2 sensor. But the maf sensor when unplugged really improved alot. Can anyone advise on this?

  4. Was driving to work yesterday, half way on the road the power steering light illuminated. It remain till I reach work place. Later start the car and drove to agent for checking, the light did not appear again. During the testing and computer analysis, found defect in the power steering sensor. Spent $232 for the replacement of item. Symptom - sometimes while turning, especially, moving off from the car park, can feel that there is no feel, or very light then heavy again. That is - Steering felt light and heavy during turn. Sharing info. car clock 2 years and 2 months with 23k on the odometer.
  5. There seems to be no thread on blind spot sensor system, so I thought I start it so we all can learn from one another. This thread is for discussion on where to get one, not whether it's useful or not (that's a whole topic by itself ;-) ) It seems to me it's not easily available in Singapore. I have not found a shop that supplies any model. There are many online (e.g. http://list.qoo10.sg/item/CRIMESTOPPER-SAFETYPLUS-TM-UNIVERSAL-FRONT-REAR-BLIND-SPOT-DETECTION/445644618, http://list.qoo10.sg/item/BOYO-VTBSD1-BLIND-SPOT-DETECTION-MICROWAVE-RADAR/487327327) but I'd like to see the item first before buying. Seems like http://www.crimestopper.com/products/safety/collision-avoidance/blind-spot-detection/bsd-754 is available based on the vendors here If you know the shop that supplies it, and have experienced on any of the model, kindly share here. Thanks in advance e1

    O2 sensor

    I am currently driving a jap car almost 5 years, distance travelled 150k. Few months back i noticed i m getting lesser mileage per litre. I did an oil change, replaced plugs and air filter, however fuel consumption remains the same. I was told it might be the o2 sensor. Is it the o2 sensor gave way? Where should i get it replaced and cost? Any advice, Thanks in advance.
  18. Dear all, a few days ago, my reverse sensor malfunctioned. Whenever I change to the reverse gear, the sensor will start to sound whether or not there is actually anything behind the car. Intermittently, the reverse sensor will work properly but most of the time it does not. This problem actually started around the time when there was heavy rain all around the island (it did not get flooded) but I'm not sure if the 2 are linked. Today, I went down to C&C and was told that there was a $180 charge because the warranty on accessories is only for 1 year (Car is slightly more than 2 years old) so I was wondering if there were other places that I could get the sensor fixed. The service personnel only did a cursory check (he put the car in reverse mode) and he said that I would most likely have to change the reverse sensor because of some magnetic fault. 1. Could the fault be with a shorted out wire instead of the reverse sensor? 2. Can someone recommend me a shop I can go to to fix this problem for less than $180? The car in question is a Lancer EX. Thanks.
  19. Hi all, I am driving a 2004 Mazda 3, with ard 130K mileage. Recently, the engine warning light was activated. Sent it to cityauto @ sin ming and they informed that the O2 sensor is faulty. replacement cost is $500+ (or $400+, cant remember). They also said that the consumption could be affected if it is not changed. been driving for ard 3 weeks and consumption is affected just a little. Can bros who had faced this issue advise if this price is reasonable, or are there workshops with better prices? (seems a bit exp. for a change of sensor!) Also, is it ok for me to ignore the problem and continue driving with the light on? Have googled for answers but pple seem to be on both sides of the fence on this issue. Thanks in advance!
  20. Got a friend in distress when her 'keyless' sensor was inside her handbag and at the rear seat. She came out of the car and closed the driver's door and it auto lock. No spare sensor as she bought the car from 2nd hand dealer. Anyone know any method to open the door. Breaking the window will be the last resort. Model is Nissan 'March' ...
  21. Hi guys, I'm driving a Toyota Fielder and I've got a P2237 error which points to Bank1 sensor 1 open circuit. My mech suggested I change the rear O2 sensor at the exhaust pipe (before cat). From his experience, this is more commonly changed part than the AF sensor right after the exhaust manifold. Based on my understanding, I thought bank1 refers to the front sensor (AF) but anyway there were no stock for this part in all the stockists I checked (Min Ghee, Tye Soon, Fong Tat, Ric Tat) but I managed to find 1 last piece of the rear O2 sensor. It was quite cost but anyway since my mech says the rear sensor is more commonly changed and since my car is 140k mileage now, I decided to try it. Changed the O2 sensor but the CEL is still on, having the same P2237 error. So now I'm thinking of changing the front AF sensors since that's the only 2 so called O2 sensors in this car. I'm assuming my ECM and harness are all good (normally). The problem is that, none of the stockist carries this currently and I'm wondering if there are OEM replacements available. On google it seems Denso might have this AF sensor but I couldn't find any shops here that carries this range. Most of the shops carrying Denso products are for their AC.... Any idea from bros here if u have came across any shops selling Denso AF/O2 sensors?
  22. Late last year, rumours of Lexus testing an autonomous car circulated on the internet and many thought that the Japanese luxury automaker will come up with a self-driving car just like what Google did. But, that is not actually true. Lexus actually unveiled an integrated safety research vehicle at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The unveiling is Toyota's ongoing development on new safety technologies. According to Toyota North America's corporate manager of business strategy, Jim Pisz, "The company will never have a truly autonomous car." He also mentioned that much of the technology in the research car is already in the 2013 Lexus LS. Jim Pisz further explained on one of the features in the integrated safety research vehicle which is the active cruise control which can slow a car down to a stop and then accelerate back to the speed set on the cruise control. The company also pointed out that a similar feature in a rival German automaker's car isn't as 'smart' when compared to their unit. Lexus affirms that the company would not fully devote its resources in a self driving vehicle. A driver-less car is just a part of the research. What they are focusing on is a vehicle fitted with advanced automated technologies and paired with an intelligent, always attentive driver whose skills would contribute to safer driving. The research vehicle (which is a Lexus LS) shown at the show is fitted with a 360 degree LIDAR (light detection and ranging) on top of the car's roof. It detects objects up to 70 metres away and it reads stop lights and also detects pedestrians. The research car's computers manage three core functions; recognition of images through its cameras and sensors, judgment based in real time, and operations that send the decision to the car. Each of these core functions help to make the driver safer and more skilled during driving.
  23. Hi, Anyone had changed their Oxygen Sensor for Nissan Latio? Had sent my car to TC Service centre due to the Engine light up. Was told by the advisor that my oxygen sensor was faulty. Need to be replaced. Cost: $546 exclude GST. But my mileage only 75000km. Now I asked them to reset first. Maybe monitor awhile then decide. Any Nissan Latio owners here facing this problem also???
