    Air Conditioner - Low Speed / Idle issue.

    Once you get modding you won't care about KBB anymore. I am so far over anything I can get for mine I don't care anymore lol

    New to the Club and absolutely thrilled!

    I may be close by. You get to be neighbors to the overlord :P Join GXOR on Facebook if you use it. We have a global and regional chapters, including GXOR-GA and we do get togethers when we don't have an unscheduled apocalypse.

    Any performance pcm/ecu tuners available?

    Slim to None. There are throttle controls...but the ECUs can only be piggybacked. The Toyota/Lexus ECU is incredibly hard to crack.

    Slack in steering wheel when engine running

    Can be bushings in the rack under load or internal seals losing pressure. I had a rack that had chipped teeth on the mechanical side (first rack) and a rack that had an internal seal leak (second rack). They aren't exactly the most robust design passed the stock phase lol.

    What Did You Do With Your 120 Today?

    I run HAM with a 10" solid antenna (compactenna) and I get 15-75 MILES of range. In an emergency I can jump on FRS or GRMS on low power and get through as well. These formats blow CB away by far.

    Resistor value for hyperblinking LED signals

    I did the resistor thing and they get HOT. Like no joke hot. Plan accordingly.

    Resistor value for hyperblinking LED signals

    I swapped to a smart tap relay using a toyota 9 to 12 pin harness I repinned to make it work (and killed my DRLs) in my GX470. 6 ohm is the resistance for hyperflash usually. Make sure you put the resistors where they can cool and not touch any wiring as they tend to get hot.

    Which RCI Skid Plates work on a 2007 GX470

    I just loosen the drain plug with a socket and extension and let the oil drain down the extension until I pull it away. Or I just have someone else change the oil when it goes for the next upgrade (usual approach).

    O2 Sensors

    Denso. Bosch has variability in the voltage that will still throw codes a lot of the time.

    Another one

    This is a fantastic problem. Congratulations.

    Wish I could have made that. :(

    Four Low Engage

    If it's a 4R you should unlock the CDL, shift to 4L then relock the CDL to troubleshoot each function.

    Four Low Engage

    Is this a 4th Gen 4R or a GX? Sounds like the CDL wanted to lock or was locked when you attempted to shift? Can be out of phase...but that beep is from the CDL. If it is a 4Runner with the dial, the 4L actuator is right next to the CDL actuator (all one assembly). Can check the basics like oil...

    Sounds like a plug is loose. The ABS module and the wiring on the engine can get knocked a bit while working on a starter. Also, may be a fuse or possible the brake switch (brake light). Otherwise...going to need the codes.
