Why would this get removed? It's as topical as the rest of our thread derailments.
See the little tab on the top of the gear shifter panel? Pop it off and push the button - see page 185 in your owners manual (page 17 of this PDF): http://www.toyota.com/t3Portal/document/om/OM12744U/pdf/4.pdf That will allow you to put it in N and start the car.

I wish! I'd love to review cars. I'm already a writer, and a photographer (kinda lol), I'd be thrilled if I could review cars.Halo, I loved what you wrote about the RC-F. . . You'd be great at reviewing cars.
Either it'll be reliable due to the new transmission, or the new transmission has a high chance of failure soon after replacement because transmissions love to do that.We'll be taking a road trip next month, around the country more or less (friend's wedding, then visiting family). . . Debating between driving the Corolla or borrowing my Dad's F-150. The F-150 has recently had the transmission replaced, and in theory is the better choice.
Thank you! I think I'm well suited for the job honestly. So you seem to have a decently positive view on the job?Being a Service Advisor, or Service Writer/Consultant takes all these skills needed to be proficient at the job: Have a professional appearance, Be able to speak clearly, be able to listen carefully to the customer, write neatly and or type correctly, and be familiar with shop standards and procedures.
Taking a short course on service advisor skill development would be beneficial as too would be interpersonal relationship building. The service advisor job takes knowing about cars and how to accurately relay the problems in a "how, when, why, where" manner to the service technician so they can more accurately diagnose the problem. If you are able to understand a persons concern and correctly transfer their words to a work order then you should have no problem. The work order is something you should look into and how it is filled. Since you have a general knowledge of vehicles and how things are supposed to work/ perform you can be a service advisor, it doesn't necessarily mean you need to be on the same knowledge level as a service tech.
Here are some things that are written on common work orders that I am taking out of a book.
- Recording the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of the vehicle on the work order.
- Recording the make, model, year, and mileage on the work order
- Carefully recording what the customers complaint (concern) so that the service technician can verify the complaint and make the proper repair.
- Reviewing the customer's vehicle history file and identify where additional required service
- Keeping the customer informed as to the progress of the service work
The part where the repair should be finalized, this is where your marketing skill in selling something will become very helpful. But this is your sale point to why it needs to be addressed or the prolonged problems they may have. The work order in many of the technicians eyes is very much a legal document in some cases.. Only because if the person declines needed work and something happens to where someone may be injured because of it you need to make sure you have the proper documentation on the w.o. to verify the decline or otherwise. So good documentation is important, for you, the tech, and the dealership. But other than that I have nothing more to say but you'll be waiting around and greeting a lot. Starting out as a porter may be alright, you may want to express that you want to become a service advisor at first and see what you need to get there. Taking college courses helps, believe me. Hope this helps
