    Headlight relay upgrade issue

    I ordered the headlight relay upgrade @beno posted in the Unobtainium thread last fall. I’m doing the installation right now, and the way the harness is set up and how my truck’s wiring is, I was trying to go off of the B+ terminal of the alternator, rather than direct off of the battery...

    Intrument/dash/interior lights/radio not working

    Okay so my 1981 FJ40 interior lights aren't working, not an issue as long as I drive during daylight hours. I can't see the instrument panel to guess how fast my flying brick is going when driving. Here in Alaska in the winter, kinda need to see that stuff. Oh and the radio isn't working...

    Dielectric grease... yes I searched :)

    Today during the rain I encountered a puddle and slowed down to not swamp my engine with water, the puddle was on the passenger side and didn't want to suck water up in the air filter. But I believe some of the connectors inside the engine bay got wet, as the LC would idle low and I would...

    Electrical? Battery? Alternator? Troubleshooting

    Hi cruiserheads! So once again I am looking for some (good :D) free advice for my 85 fj60, Bitchy Bertha. The other day I was driving it home and my headlights seemed kinda dim but she drove fine for about 20 min, I then pulled over to make a phone call and my while she was idling...

    Diagnosing Cluster Issues

    Howdy all, first post here on the thread, I finally need help. I have a 1973 Fj40, was a frame off. So when it was rewired was rewired with a quick wire kit. My issue is my gauges are all wired, each gauge is getting power in, and each sending unit has power at the sending unit, however none of...

    Dash-lights turn on when I press the brake, Cruise-Control doesn't work with headlights on

    Hi everyone, I've seen a few different posts on here for random interior lights/headlight/taillight/cruise control issues so I figured I'd post here to get all the answers on one post. Issue #1: Cruise Control immediately cancels when turning ON blinker (left-blinker, in my case) Issue...

    Hard start, slow starter - SOLVED Ignitor/Coil grounding

    Just posted up a hard start thread, and got lots of the regular advice, check cables/grounds, fusible links, solenoid tests, ignition switch etc. But have noticed this typically happens when the first cold comes. Which made me wonder, how does the FJ60 know when the heater is on? 83 FJ60 4spd...

    New Owner of 1980 FJ40 in need of local mechanic

    Hi Local LC Enthusiasts! I was very excited to find a local FJ club here in Philly. I'm a new owner of a 1980 FJ40 that is in need of some mechanical assistance. I've been able to address most mechanical and minor electrical issues within reason, but I am not expert mechanic by a long shot...

    Mystery electrical connection under dash

    Hey guys so I got a 1991 80series 1hdt from Japan. When I pulled the bottom kickplate under steering wheel to remove the turbo timer that was installed I found a grey 26 pin connector left hanging with no visible places to connect it into. Located by driver knee towards door.

    Brake Light Quirk

    I've got a 94 80 with 320k on the clock. That said, the only problems I've been running into so far are electrical quirks like this one. Right now all my tail-lights work as they should, but when I put on the brakes, my passenger side brake light won't illuminate. I tried replacing the light...

    A/C Heater Probs

    Hey fellow Cruisers, I live in Northern Utah, which means in September you use your heater in the morning and A/C in the afternoon. My daily drive is about 15 miles, and my a/c or heater won't kick on until I'm about pulling into my work in the morning or pulling into my driveway at night...

    Huh? Confused newbie to the 24v thing

    G'day guys and girls, I've recently aquired a JDM import HJ61, and given that 12v is the norm for cruisers here, I'm not too familiar with the whole 24v thing, so I'd really appreciate some help, because this has me a bit boxed; 1) Wiring is interesting to say the least; some people shouldn't...

    electrical wiring at relay question

    While checking a few things in the engine compartment this weekend, I noticed the previous owner did some interesting mods on the wiring harness near the positive terminal of the battery. Please look closely at the blue (slightly burned) wire connector near the relays. I'm really interested...

    no mod goes unpunished - electrical issues again

    here we go again. This week end - I thought, instead of just fixing some broken part of the Fj - that I would add a functional upgrade, in the form of sound. I found the NOAM n4 speaker, and micro marine amp, with just a simple aux in port. Nothing fancy, just plug the phone in and get some...

    Electrical gremlins; or, how to start a fire by removing body trim.

    Stick with me. This might be a bit circuitous, but I'll get there. Since I bought this truck I've been chasing electrical gremlins. There seem to be three of them and every time I fix one thing the gremlin takes up residence someplace else. For instance, my horn, cigarette lighter plug, and...

    tail light issues

    I've got an HJ47. It was owned by a farmer before and he didn't care what worked as long as the thing ran and could haul and hold equipment, so I've got a few issues to resolve. One is my rear lights. The hazards work, the blinkers work, one brake light works (right side). No rear lights turn on...

    Electrical wiring Harness

    Hi, I am having to rewire my fj80 after the wiring harness got fried. I don't know much about this area, so I have a question. In the pic, is that big wiring harness with the green tape part of the engine wire harness or is that the cowl wire? Any help would be appreciated. This was the harness...
