    Transmission relay constantly "clicking"

    Bumping this thread back from the dead, wondering if anyone found a solution to this? 96' LX450 with a pin 7 mod. Actuator was bad and has been replaced, working as it should, but getting chatter from the relay. Tried a new relay and same noise from it. Doesn't chatter when center diff is...

    CDL issue - '96 LX450 - Resolved

    Editing this thread so my stupidity doesn't confuse someone else who stumbles upon this in the future. 1996 Lx450, 152k miles, NO front or rear lockers. CDL Dash Switch, Pin-7 Mod. 4WD High and Low work fine, but the CDL hasn't locked since the day I bought it. When shifting into 4WD Low, or...

    1994 HDJ81 Do-It-All "build"

    Did you do the underside blasting and POR15 yourself? I need to do something similar because I screwed up and bought a NY/OH truck. I've put maybe 4K miles on mine since I moved to TN 4+ years ago. It has been neglected, but I sold the NB2 to help kickstart working on it again. Haven't used my...

    Put pictures of the wheels you have in yours 80 series

    Fancy seeing you here! Looking through this thread I thought 'what a nice wheel selection' and then I saw the Flickr and it all made sense.

    Yet another CDL Issue

    Yet another CDL Issue

    Went out again, Shorted the position indicator switch so the ABS and CDL light were illuminated, drove and reversed a few feet and jacked up the wheel to see if it was in fact locked, and again it just had some resistance after a few degrees but would still spin. So is there a way to test the...

    Yet another CDL Issue

    Yes, all fuses are good, forgot to mention that. Am I correct in assuming that with the pin-7 mod completed and the indicator switch shorted, pressing my CDL switch should have turned the lights off?

    Yet another CDL Issue

    Hey Mud, I've exhausted my troubleshooting skills on my CDL not engaging when it should. I have a 1996 LX450 (no locking front or rear diff) with 144.5k miles, stock aside from adding the factory dash CDL switch. When you turn the key to ACC and it does the bulb check, ABS lights up but the...

    80s as Daily Drivers?

    I have a rust free low mileage '02 miata I've been DD'ing for two years. I bought it with intentions to swap and build it for auto cross, so last November I was looking for a 4 runner on craigslist when I stumbled upon a 140k '96 LX450. Having never seen another one for sale around here, I...

    New LX450 Owner

    Yesterday I replaced all three rad hoses with silicone ones, firewall heater hoses, pesky heater hose, rad cap, thermostat, flushed the system 8 times without the thermostat in, and did a ~60/40 OEM red flush. PHH wasn't bad, but having a friend with small arms, proper tools, and empty system...

    Head Unit w/ Nav and Backup Cam Suggestions?

    Just wanted to throw this out there for anyone interested since I won't have the time or money to play with this idea anytime soon I recently picked up a Raspberry Pi, which is one of the best purchases I've made. I'm currently using it for for a media center, desktop, and emulator; but the...

    no no no, sadly no magic dial. I thought the same thing when I saw the CL ad, it's just an LED for valet mode on the remote start. Got me over $1k off the price for that one. Yes I know I didn't have to pull the pan, but having no maintenance records I wanted to check er out anyway. I thought...

    Not good, but not bad for an Ohio/NY car I guess.

    New LX450 Owner

    Thanks for the welcome everyone! If I can avoid selling the miata for 80 maintenance, I know I'll have to fight selling it to fund mods. They'll be swapping places during summers/winters as project and daily, so this will surely get some love. It really is great, especially if I sort this...
