    Hi

    I notice in bright sunlight that there is a warning message in the qauges of my
    99 LX470 that says "T-BELT".

    hmmm, does this "dummy" message come on after the timing belt breaks ?

    if teh timing belt breaks you'll hear the valves talk to the pistons would be my guess. Most likey an idiot light to tell you to service the belt.

    I think the UZJ's use the same dash insert as a diesel which has a timing belt reminder, I don't think the gassers have this.
