Hi all. I'm considering a scanner to check the LC stats and input compensation codes after an injector job.

I've noticed that most say they are compatible with Japanese vehicles AFTER 2009. Mine is an 2003 120.

Has anyone here got experience with a Vident or Topdon etc that worked on an early 120/Prado?
Could be an expensive dice roll ... thanks  thumbright

Although all scanners work on my 2009 120 the 3 that I have all cost under 100 do not have the facility to recode injectors into my ecu . But the tecstream that I have does and it only cost me 15 when I got it on e bay , the tecstream costs about 20 - 25 on e bay lately and is the only way to go if you want the FULL facility of scanning and making ecu adjustments including recoding the injectors on your 120.

I tried the Techstream first (with an e bay cable) but it didn't have the 120 lsited at all. Only the 4.7 2UZ-FE engine (the only thing under the landcruiser option).
Tried all the options and regional settings but didn't show anywhere. Maybe I had the wrong version?

I'll give that a crack Tony cheers. I think mine was a v16 or v17 so could be the older ones were removed or something. Long shot but I'll give it a go.

My techstream was bought probably 5 years ago, it does everything reqd on my 2005 120, being as much use as a cow with a gun when it comes to computers i couldn't get t'stream onto my laptop and then couldn't get it to connect to the car, the IT guru we use had both issues sorted in minutes.
We have an ageing windows 7 laptop, that's what the t'stream is on and is used for nothing else.

Well - that was a lot of searching for nothing  Rolling Eyes

The 2003 120 injectors don't have compensation codes. Might still get a scanner one day - but don't need them for the injector job.

I now know that the older 120s use a different injector type (with big spring thing around the top). The clue is to see how many pins the injector plugs have. If it's 4, the top two are used by the LC to do a resistance check. Lesson learned.

I thought I would check my tecstream still works ok on my 120 only to find the old 19 years old laptop I have on no longer fires up , it used to be slow to fire up and got slower every time I tried it now its hard drive is dead . So I have  ordered a toyota specific scanner that claims it can code the injectors on e bay  called a ANCEL TD700 cost was 78 with free delivery . I checked it out on youtube if anyone has coded injectors with it but could only find USA youtube vids no diesels on it ,BUT the same Ancel VD700 scanner specific  for VW had youtube vids made in the UK using it to code Audi injectors that worked fine and was easy to recode the injectors .
