  6. I have a toyota Vitz 2017. All the gears I have are P,R,N,D-S,B. I don't know what really the gear 'B' stands for, but i think it means 'Engine break' when going in slopes to avoid using brakes all the time. Problem is I sometimes forget to change gear 'B' to 'D' when I am accelerating after a slope and go some distance without understanding. I only understand it when i feel the engine is not accelerating as it used to. So my questions are, 1.What is really gear 'B' stands for? 2.Did I damage my engine or gear box by accelerating for some distances in gear 'B'? Thank you!

  19. Dear Friends, My car is Toyota Corolla AE110 (1998 / Auto / Petrol) My car's radiator fan working continuously. Today I checked the car and found the fault. There is a problem on AC pressure switch. The switching terminals are always open, so the relay of radiator fan is always switched on (The relay is "Normally-Closed type 4pin) So I tried to short circuit the AC pressure switch terminals by a tweezers. It was successful and radiator fan was turned off. Then I pointed the problem is on AC pressure switch. I have to replace it. But If I removed it, I will have to refill the AC gas. So I have to go for a professional auto Electrical workshop. But it is not the main problem, When I do the AC pressure switch short-circuit, by mistake I have short circuited wrong terminals. Now there is no voltage on AC pressure switch. AC is not working, AC light indicator and AC Fan is not working. I checked all fuses, but I couldn't find AC fuse in my car. I need to check it and repair by a qualified technician. Please advice me to, what is the best place to solve this problem. What about "Pala auto electricals"? I am planning to go there tomorrow.
