    92 FJ80 with electrical issues - replaced alternator

    Hey everyone, I've been having odd power issues on my 92. I first noticed my stereo turning off and on and then realized that I had a draining battery when it was starting to struggle to start, turning over slowly. First time I charged the battery and all was well until I started experiencing...

    Battery drain

    I have a parasitic battery drain. Using a multimeter it’s pulling 0.225, i narrowed it down to the ignition switch, removed that fuse and draw goes down to 0.176 which I think is still high. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. Electrical issues are not my strong suit. Also I notice...

    Ghost in the rear fan, display, killing battery?

    My '04 LC100 is acting funny, again. This week, the rear fan had been coming on spontaneously, but I hadn't really been paying much attention to it. Yesterday, after driving the truck about 200 miles the day before, and after it starting fine in the morning, it wouldn't start after a couple...

    1997 FzJ80 Battery Question 24F vs 27F - Is there a difference?

    I've read through a lot of posts about batteries...when I purchased my battery four years ago, Costco told me that I needed the "24F" battery (Interstate). I picked it up but it's never seemed to get the job done. There are no parasitic drains on the system but if left sitting for 3-5 days, the...

    Checking battery size

    Hi there, I’m thinking about getting a new battery for the 80 series and the optima yellow top seems to be a good choice. However, after checking the different sizes available from optima it seems that the 27F is a good fit for the 80 series and it is also the OEM size. Would the yellow top...

    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...

    Can I manually power ACC via external battery power source?

    I am playing around with being able to hang in the back of the cruiser, and the rear fans are _perfect_ .. I haven't touched those rear fan controls in 7 years, but here they are... strength, direction, all controlled from back here. I want to use them without draining the starter battery so...

    Aftermarket Battery Terminal Options

    I am not a fan of OEM battery terminals since they don't provide any additional cable mounting options. A lot of aftermarket terminals that do have provisions to mount extra cables, but don't really work with our trucks because the fusible link assembly needs a vertical post to mount to. This...
