Commodore VF (2013-2017)

Hey. Just need to replace a hose on or near the fuel tank, so to make this inquiry easy, say I needed to replace a fuel pump (pick up, whatever it is) in the tank, how long would it take to do. Because it looks like the exhaust system, tailshaft, etc. needs to come out just to be able to take the fuel tank out. So I'm just chasing roughly how many hours it would take.

Commodore VF (2013-2017)

Hi All, I am considering purchasing a VF SSV REDLINE that has not been driven since November 2017. It's last service was conducted on 21st January 2017.
Given that it's now June 2020, I am concerned about the bearings, seals and lubricants.
What inspection should be done prior to starting and driving?

Just purchased from Toyota car yard, awesome car. But sitting in traffic the other day and the heat gauge was going over half rapidly then under rapidly and over until I started moving again, it then sat perfectly under half?? Hasn’t done it since.

4 answers

It would normally only behave like that in hot weather, when towing or moving slowly in warm to hot weather. In cool to cold conditions, the temperature gauge should be about a quarter below the half-way point. So coolant thermostat may require servicing. This is done by dealer. Also check of coolant level (done by checking yellow-capped reservoir at left front of car (drive's side). Air flow coming in the front of the car is required as part of the normal engine cooling process when driving; slow moving, congested traffic leads to higher temperatures. Supplementary fans are also provided behind the radiator and the dealer will likely check operation of these during inspection.

Thanks Gary, just a strange thing to happen for a relatively new car. We’ve only had it a week so I’ll take it back to Toyota and get them to go over it. Thanks again for the advise.

Take your Toyota to Holden Australia service centre for quality repairs. Or, if you'd prefer an auto electrician, ultra tune is apparently the pick of the bunch, closely followed by Kmart tyre and auto centre.

Got battery replaced in evoke now the touch screen ain’t working no indicator noise or cancel no park Assist and manually have to turn off stereo each time

Gary H.

Return the car to the place that changed the battery (protection of the car's electronic systems is their responsibility) and have them reset the items that are not working through their OBD unit (diagnostics will come first, reading of fault codes second and remediation/correction after that, followed by testing). A device is usually plugged into the VF cars that provides backup to systems during the exchange of the battery. Unfortunately many people don't do this and it leads to a tripping scenario, like you have experienced.

If the touch screen were still operative, navigating to the Factory Reset in the menu system would restore it, but you would lose customisations.

Does 2015/16 sv6/Calais have Apple CarPlay?
Cheers

1 answer

Gary H.

None of the SV6 variants from any year have Apple CarPlay or AndroidAuto through MyLink.

There is a USB plug-in (inside console box for most models and a Source button on the centre display to play from USB. Also Android phones have now Android Auto app that improves connectivity.

Why is my remote not working ?Have replaced batteries in both remotes and had a new battery installed in the car ! All worked well for a while now remote won't work and can't start the car! Alarm keeps going off! Help please!

All resolve ! Bad batteries in remote !

Gary H.
Gary H.

You would have been given a warning message on the DIC (centre of instrument cluster) to the effect that the battery in one or both remotes has died. When that happens, there is usually only enough reserve in the remote to unlock the car, but starting it may cause a stall because the BCM/immobiliser constantly monitors the remote when it is inside the car ("handshakes"). Carry spare button cells in the glove box for when you need them when you least expect a flat remote...

I'm considering buying a v6 commodore and was wondering does the 2017 VF2 have the fancy interior lights like the ssv redline, at night under the head unit just in front Of The gear stick, just courious?

2 answers
Gary H.
Gary H.

The fancy interior lights might be (?) the "crystal light" illumination on all of the buttons of white (daylight/darkness; pale-grey at night when driving)? Otherwise, the SSV Redline might have illumination features that the VF SV6 does not.

The VF (SV6 variants) also has 'fade-in/out' interior lights (front, and middle). It also has faint blue "locator LEDs" in the recess around the door handles, and in the tray under the dash (where the accessory 12v power socket will be found). These cute, tiny blue lights will extinguish after 10 minutes to save battery power.

Only daytime fancy lights for you on your pov pack. They will fit straight in to your wifes Toyota Lexcen though

Can u put gas in a 2013 vf ssv ute?
If so at what expense?

2 answers
Gary H.
Gary H.

No doubt it would be far cheaper to source an LPG-powered VF rather than the huge expensive of conversion involving engine (mechanical/fuel etc.) and electronic (metrics, management etc.). The Redline SSV is a performance car probably not given to, nor forgiving of, any conversion to LPG.

Yeah buddy my mate can sort for $500.. then another $500 for a bluey and bobs ya uncle...

Where is the boot light fuse located in a 2015 Calais v series 2 sedan?

2 answers
Gary H.
Gary H.

Three places to look: inside boot battery compartment, proximal to the battery, the fuse box on the left side of the engine bay or the fuse box on the right hand side flush panel, driver's side (prise off carefully with a screwdriver). If the fuse repeatedly blows, a fault is indicated and should be investigated.

It's the back tray side panel undertheath the rubber ute liner

Is $120 the going price for windscreen wiper replacemt on 2015 Redline?

Not sure

Gary H.
Gary H.

Wiper blade (rubber) replacements (cheap and easy to fit), or the wiper arms proper?
If the wiper arms require replacement, it could well cost $120, and potentially more to fit.

Thanks. Had had wipers and I hope arms too replaced at dealership twice at $120.. I wouldn't of thought arms need replacing each time?

I have a VF Series 2 SV6 Wagon. The tailgate closes and pulls in tight as it should but it wont lock. the doors can be either open or locked, and the tailgate will still open when the button on the tailgate is pressed.
any ideas please?

1 answer
Gary H.
Gary H.

As you have indicated you can see the tailgate closing and being "pulled" down to the closed and locked point, but is not locking, it is assumed that the tailgate "claw" is not engaging correctly in the metal loop on the base of the tailgate fascia. Have this adjusted, then try it.
