You would have to be a dealer.

Proquest is a pile of crap for Toyota. Since we started using it we've had problem after problem. It's buggy, it's a resource hog.. but anyhoo. I'm sure you could find a copy somewhere, just like any other software not meant to be had by the public, but it'd be something to get you in trouble if anyone ever checked and you wouldn't be able to update it.

The EPC isn't particularly useful for showing you where stuff goes. It's very basic. You kind of have to know stuff is there in order to find it. It can be handy for looking at hose routing and such, but often doesn't even show you where they hook up. The repair manuals (TIS) are a ton more useful.. But anyway..

Yes, but the part numbers aren't actually in the picture, just the PNC, which is /usually/ the first five of the part number, but not always.

well i do know pretty much were everything goes, i really just want it for my personal amusement not really much else, and i dont think they have the repair manual online, plus i hear they're pretty pricey(over $50) if you go to the dealer to buy. Thanks for yalls help

Most are more than that though. Quite a few are are over $100. Dealers can't even get a great price on them.

Do they have a web version of it. I think it would be a nice tool for the BGB section of this site.

It needs to be installed on a small partition. I had it on a laptop with a 2 gig partition and it installed fine.

when you burn the cd, it asks for a name. thats the volume. you need to put that number where is says name. its a very old program.
