    Yesterday: no problems.

    This morning: tried to start my car, she turns over but won't fire.
    And when I turn the key to ON, without turning to start, I hear a click-click-click-click sound for 5 seconds which comes from the black thingie on the traction control throttle housing (the black thing on the bottom right of the throttle housing)

    I don't know what the problem is, I'm hoping to find out this monday, when she's being delivered to SupraSports here in NL.

    So I was pretty sad to see the car leave like this:

    Sucks, I hope it's something simple/cheap to fix.

    Do a fault code test, using a wire join Te1 & E01 in the diagnostics box just below & back from that unit. Turn ign on & see what the ecu light does. YOu should get some lights flashing up giving error codes ---- _ _ _ _ _ = 45 etc

    I tried when the tow company was here (he wanted to help me get the car going, as I was about to leave for a charity drive). Disconnected both plugs on the left and right sides of the TCS butterfly, and it made no difference.
    It's been towed to the biggest Toyota expert here in NL, so I guess I'll know tomorrow.
