How do you adjust the digital clock?

13th May 2011, 00:16

The clock on 1998 Harrier is auto adjusted following GPS system. When the car is sold in Japan, location data is set in Japan and GPS system auto set time to Japan time. Impossible to adjust unless you've got equipment to re-program the GPS system.

The gas filter is in the tank. You have to remove the left rear seat and the carpet, then you will find the opening to the tank.

Hello, I have just acquired a Harrier 1998 3000cc automatic, but it has an oil leak on the gear box. How can I proceed?

11th Nov 2011, 08:26

Gearbox has been the most fragile part, in this elegant production. Be careful in your gear usage.. be gentle and make sure you get good quality gear oil. Oil leakage is just a norm among the old cars. I guess your mechanic can easily solve this problem for you.

I'm in New Zealand. What is the Harrier like on gas?

14th Feb 2012, 07:05

Did you get an answer on this problem? My car is starting to do the same thing. On the dash bottom right corner, I have what looks like a vehicle with what looks like brake lights on. I am also looking for an English manual, if anyone knows how to get one? I have a 1998 Harrier, and I live in Japan.

14th Feb 2012, 22:25

I want to download an English version, because I have the Japanese version only.

17th Feb 2012, 07:30

The light means one or more of your rear (tail) lights is out and needs replacing. I have not found a solution to DVD nav system yet.

Hello everyone.

I have a Harrier 2000 model V6 1MZ. Sometime back I had an accident with it, and now I have started to repair it.

My question: what transmission oil should I use? Since I don't have the workshop/user manual, I can't figure that out.

Your help will greatly be appreciated.

The up/down buttons on the steering wheel are for when you put the gear shift into M mode. The up and down buttons on the wheel will allow you to then manually move up and down the gears.

Hi. We bought a 3.0 four Harrier 4 days ago. What we want to know, does one of the prop shafts ever stand still if this car is moving? Is it an AWD/4WD or a 4x4? Please can anyone help and advise us. Our email is meyergesin@gmail.com


15th Apr 2012, 05:31


Could anyone tell us where to find the chassis no of the Harrier?

Thanks for helping. meyergesin@gmail.com

9th Jun 2012, 04:31

Yes, I am interested in the translation.


14th Aug 2012, 17:48

The M is for driving the car as a manual, so if you choose it, the car will not change; you need to press up or down to manually change gears without a clutch.

16th Sep 2012, 23:30

Hope you managed to find a Harrier.

I own a 3.0/1999 recon. Great car as compared to all my previous rides.

If you want to know more about the Harrier, let me know.

I own a Lexus Harrier 1998, and I'm quite sure the problem is the automatic gearbox. The gears just go back and forward, but no response from the car.

Any idea if the gearbox is broken beyond repair, or can it be fixed, and approximately how much would it cost me to buy a new or used transmission?

Please mail me at hussainakbar2904@gmail.com.


28th Oct 2012, 07:44

My Harrier is just driving forwards. Can anybody help me? It's not driving in reverse.

16th Nov 2012, 05:10

In the front, underneath the driver's seat, is a plastic cover, about 1.5 inches by 9 inches. Remove it; the chassis number is under it.

I own a Harrier 2000, and it's a superb car to drive apart from the relatively high fuel consumption, especially for town running. The up and down buttons on your steering wheel are for manually controlling the gear transmission. You do this by shifting the the gear lever left to the M position. This means you have the option of taking more control of the car by changing the gears yourself like you would in a manual car.

17th Dec 2012, 05:45

The up and down buttons are for changing gears after putting the gear lever on "M". You can use either set, left or right, whatever is convenient to you.

Lexus Harrier 2002 model.

Gear box problems.

I used my car over the weekend on a dust road. After driving for about 15 km, my car stopped going into gear number 4. I tried to use manual selection of gears, but it doesn't help.

Can anyone help, I don't know what the problem is. My mechanic has tried to change my transmission oil and clean the some parts in the gearbox, but it's still not helping.

I shifted the gear lever to the M position while driving. However, I could not change into higher gears, though I managed to go into lower gears. Could someone tell me step by step on how to use the M option properly?

21st Mar 2013, 01:15

I trust nobody till today has found the software to convert the VDU Japanese to the English version?

What does up and down button on the Lexus 1998 steering do?

I want to know where I can adjust the time in my Toyota Harrier 2000 model?

25th Oct 2013, 09:14

Hope you got a response to your concerns on the Harrier translations for the TV, radio and GPS settings. Can we share please, if you don't mind? Thanks so much for your time.

13th Dec 2013, 09:32


I am experiencing the same problem today after driving on a mud surface last weekend. My Harrier no longer goes into gear four. How did you manage with the issue? Thanks in advance for your help.



30th Jan 2014, 04:41

If I'm correct, that is a warning light to show that a bulb at the rear has blown.

13th Mar 2014, 02:31

I am experiencing a problem, my Harrier no longer goes into fourth gear. How do you manage this? Thanks in advance for your help.


21st Apr 2014, 05:11

May be this is due to detachment between the gear rod and gear box. In my experience the connection wire is damaged.

Find the wire, and if it is broken, replace the wire.

25th May 2014, 11:56

I have a 1998 model Toyota Harrier VVTI 3.0 MCU15. The problem is it can't change to fourth gear when traveling.

8th Jul 2014, 12:03

Just check the manufacturing date on the seat belt at the bottom of the belt.

8th Aug 2014, 23:08

Yep, my 1998 RX 300 does the same. Have had it checked, but cannot find the source of noise; it sometimes clonks as well. Anyone got any ideas?

22nd Sep 2014, 12:09

The buttons on the steering wheel are to change gear when M is selected.

5th Oct 2014, 09:56

Hi, my comment is to check the solenoid sensor no. 4 or to check the clutch plates.

4th Nov 2014, 19:44

I have a Harrier 3.0 four, but recently I noticed that my fuel gauge does not drop; what could be the problem?
