    Strange AC issues

    Hi guys, I have some strange AC issues that I haven't exactly seen here in my searching. I recently had the alternator replaced, and when I got it back the windows didn't work right (no auto-up/down and I couldn't control the passenger window at all from the master panel), and the AC both...

    Alternator fried by LED headlights?

    I installed LED bulbs in the low beams and running lights in my 2011 a couple of days ago. I did notice some quirks when I initially tried to turn the light switch to initiate them as I was installing. Lights on the dash went off and the push button start would not initiate. It’s as if the car...

    HZJ75 Alternator problems

    Hi all, I’ve been having issues with my alternator (reconditioned when fitted) not putting out any more the 6 amps. This has been a problem since the engine was swapped around a year ago. Is there anything easy I could have looked over when putting it back together? TIA Jack

    2007 Oil Leak- Cam Shaft Seals?

    I recently purchased a 2007 LC with 170K miles and took it in for a post purchase inspection. I thought I would post one of their findings to see if I can get a collective opinion here. The mechanic found that the alternator and timing belt are covered in oil and suspects that the leak is...

    Bad Alternator?

    So a new dash light came on today and I needed a jump to start my cruiser. No weird nosies coming from the engine, so I don't think any bearings or belt went bad. I'm charging the battery overnight and seeing if that's the issues, but I suspect the alternator is shot. Partsouq has them for the...

    Battery keeps randomly losing charge

    Hey everyone, recently my 1991 fj80 has been acting really weird— The other day, when I went to start the car it cranked slower then usual. Stupidly, I continued to drive and the battery didn’t charge, so the car eventually died. Due to this, I thought it was the alternator. I got the battery...
