    ok I just replaced the fusible link this morning and this afternoon I removed some parts in the way to take a closer look at that wire harness behind the EGR pipe and it doesn't look good. I see that the wrap is partly exposed but not sure if the individual wire insulation is broken. I ran out...

    so with the help from the 80 series FB group, I got leverage from using the channellock to grip on the junction block while I use the ratchet to loosen the nut. She now has a new fusible link and a spare in the glovebox. This afternoon I can now continue looking into the firewall wire harness...

    any tips to counteract the counterclockwise turn other than firmly grasping the junction block with my hand in case the coke and pb blaster isn't sufficient? 😅

    I was halfway through replacing the fusible link and junction box but the larger nut sized, and it was covered in gunk (battery acid?) i sprayed pb blaster and called it a day because sun was starting to set. I'm going to have to return to this Friday because I'm going back to my apt in the city. 😬

    Ok @BILT4ME it looks like you're on the money. On page 56 of the EWD, It is showing that the Junction block/splice point 14 is at page 32 and that page shows a diagram of the Cowl wire that looks to be running along the firewall. BTW I noted that the following components are not working when the...

    Ok for context, it's on page 56 of the EWD: 3.9 MB file on MEGA - https://mega.nz/file/ISU0QQRS#ZmPBeGx9HQGEo_Yy5WggR-yjr3EavSmiz5BF_Bnk7qM

    OK so I checked the fuses under the hood and in the instrument panel and found a blown fuse for ignition. what could have caused the fuse to blow? I did notice the hose going to the heater control valve was leaking there but it couldn't have caused it right? could disturbing the firewall engine...

    I may have found the issue. the fuel pump connector seems to have a missing wire that may have disconnected. this should cause the ECU to not be in the ready state right? What's the best way to test this hypothesis? check if there's fuel pressure when the ignition is ON?

    so is ur ECU in ready state after all? are you able to connect the obd2 and read the code?

    ok I'm following this thread from someone who's having the same issue as me: Post in thread '96 fzj80 crank no start' 96 fzj80 crank no start - https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/96-fzj80-crank-no-start.1289471/post-14533610 no CEL so that means the ECU is not ready. I'm going to buy a new...

    oh I'll check the wiring harness behind the egr pipe. those didn't look so good to begin with. I'll take a look at the fusible link. I plugged the maf sensor back in because that was the issue I had last time it didn't start. I haven't done the phh yet. I didnt get a CEL which would've been...
