Re: Toyota ProAce van

Thanks Ron, Yeah I found that code in different places several times, but specific 0303 nothing. Going to leave it for now and see if anything rears its head in the fault world from it, it not I'd assume it won't be anything to worry about. I have not noticed any drive ability problems and the batte...

Toyota ProAce van

Hello ladies and gents, I've been working on the above van with an engine code 4WZ-FTV being a 2.0 litre diesel. I read fault codes P0437 and P1499 both referring to the air metering valve operation.
