    UZJ100 GCC specs with factory auxiliary tank, won’t start on main tank unless I give it enough power.

    So this issue popped up when water entered the driver side dash and caused loads of electrical issues, most of them have been solved but the thing that’s driving me nuts is the car won’t start on main tank “sometimes”. Meaning, if I crank the engine, it starts, and the tachometer goes above 1K...

    Calling all Sparkys -Help! After Key on to Start, lights cut out, No power, No Crank, No Start.

    This one is a bugger, new battery month ago, and seems a bit different than the EFI fuse/fusebox "crank/ no start" issue - old battery was about 3 when it died - Big Interstate Group 31 AGM (little odd so short lived, but I live in the tropics and do low miles). Hopefully this is all some kind...

    Am I overthinking my electrical?

    I've been chugging along on my 1970 V8 build and it's time to do the electrics. None of the existing system is salvageable (I don't know what the PO did, but whatever it was didn't involve fuses) so it's a total rebuild. I have a strong background in low voltage electric and everything going...

    1997 Fuse Question / Insight

    Last time I was at the shop, they pointed out the BIG fuse in the center of the pic and indicated, “Yeah, we don’t know what that is or why it’s there,” So…can someone tell me what this big (BUSS) fuse is? Or what it’s for? Also, does it matter if fuses are inserted upside down? Thanks in...

    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...

    Light ring around key ignition - 1997 FzJ80

    Hey everyone! Can someone refresh my memory…? On a ‘97, does the green light up ring around the key ignition time out? After doing a bunch of work this weekend I’ve noticed mine stays on. Worried that it might cause a parasitic drain. Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    Stuck Sunroof - 1997 FzJ80 - Is there a manual bypass?

    Can anyone confirm if there is or is not a manual bypass for a sunroof that refuses to open on a 1997? I found THIS THREAD (post #3) mentioning a manual bypass under the sunroof switch and map light...I'm not home to verify with my own eyes so I thought I would ask. ISSUE: My sunroof is...

    Some FJ40 restoration work needed in Oregon

    Hi All, looking for some options for some quality body work, electrical, and engine work in the Portland, OR area. Might need an engine rebuild due to some heavy exhaust and smells (makes it hard to romance the wife smelling like exhaust!) Any lesser known, good shops hiding in the shadows?

    City Racer LED replacement for FJ40 Headlights and my Wiring issues

    I just installed the city racer LED "plus n play" headlights. My Halogens were dim and I want the better lighting for nights. But there's an issue with the lights. I only get a small LED on them and my first thought would be I don't have enough power going to them. Has anyone else had this...
