    Default Two problems in Vitz.

    Dear brothers,

    I am facing two problems in my Vitz 2000.

    1. The digital meter is showing "O/D OFF" sign. What's that?

    2. Sometimes meter shows "Check Engine" sign and sometimes it does'nt.

    I've changed the engine oil and also checked all other fluids. Everything is fine.

    Vitz owners please help me out. Thanx in advance.

    Best Regards,
    Hassan Khan.

    1. O/D OFF indicates 'Over drive' is off. Which means that your car would not be going into fourth gear, only upto the 3rd. This provision is there for city or mountainous driving when you purposely do not want to shift to the 4th gear. How to turn O/D on, notice there should be small button below the larger shift button on the right hand side of your car's gear changer. It should be un-pressed. So if you press it (you should hear a click sound when it is pressed), then O/D should turn on.

    2. There can be different reasons for this. Sometimes it is the catalytic converter, which can be clogged or mal-functioning because of dirty petrol. My suggestion is to get your engine checked by a reputable workshop. For first time you can get it checked by Toyota.

    Hope this helps.
    This is as much of a test for me as it's for them

    No. I was thinking that it might be because of old engine oil. So I changed the oil and checked all other fluids. The light is still there. Sometimes it comes sometimes it does'nt. It comes when I drive more than 5-10 KM. May be engine is getting hot.

    How can we see in the meter of Vitz that engine is getting hot.

    are u pressing the button the base of center console? that one is used to pull the car out of Park to N or so without key.

    the button on the right of the gear knob should be easily pressable. the light goes off when OD is ON, and turns on when OD is OFF

    I have changed the oil filter.

    @RedBull_ar

    Are you talking about the button which is on the gear stick or is it near the gear stick?
