I did Sonartech's HOW TO on a 2007 ES350 and it works perfectly. Besides being very smart Sonartech is a master at explaining things and writing a very clear and concise step by step description on how to do something.
In a post about modifying the multi display, you said:
By performing this modification, the Multi-Display Vehicle Signal Check service menu will indicate 0 MPH regardless how fast the car is actually moving. Since this modification removes the SPD signal from the Multi-Display, the Multi-Display service menu will always report 0 MPH.
I have an 08 RX350, and have removed the speed sensor wire from the multi display, and now have all Audio and Bluetooth functions while driving. Does this vehicle signal check service menu also apply to me?
Sorry.....but what is the Multi-Display Vehicle Signal Check service menu, and how do I get to it, to see if the service menu is indicating 0 MPH while moving?
Thanks in advance!...........Don
PS.....If anyone else can tell me, I'd appreciate it!
To answer your question, one of these write ups describes how to do what you asked. As I remembr all you need to do is cut the ground wire (yellow, I think) to the parking brake but pleasae don't do it on my say so. Find the detailed description before you try it!
THIS IS REALLY GREAT!!!! AWESOME JOB!!! HOWEVER, MY MAIN DESIRE IS TO BYPASS THE DVD PLAYER PART OF MY ES350 SO THAT MY KIDS CAN WATCH HAPPY FEET AND STUFF WHILE I DO THE DRIVING. I DO HAVE THE DVD FEATURE BUT IT HAS THE GROUND AND SPEED SENSOR LOCKOUT. PLEASE HELP!!!!
