HELLO PRADO LOVERS...
I JUST BOUGHT A PRADO 3.4 PETROL V6 2004 EDITION, I REACH 120KPH, AND THE SPEEDO METER GOES BACK TO '0' OR SOME TIMES GOES TO '30' ETC... (KPH). AND ALSO, THE TEMPERATURE GUAGE WAS WORKING NORMAL, AND SUDDEDNLY IT DOESNT WORK..DOESNT MOVE AT ALL. PLEASE CAN SOME ONE TELL ME IF THIS IS A BIG PROBLEM, THE CAR HAS DONE 15,000KM. WAITING FOR REPLY ...

THANKSSSSSS :D

In older cars I worked on in the past, this usually indicates a bad earth on the instrument cluster, but I am way out of touch with todays electronics...... Take it to your nearest Toyota dealer and get them to fix this issue under warranty.

THESE ARE CALLED TX, TZ, RZ ETC.... TZ-G BEING THE BEST, WHICH HAS EVERY THING ALMOST. ANY MORE SUGGESTIONS REGARDING THIS PROBLEMO IM FACING?
