    High beams blow fuse

    When I activate the high beams the left headlight fuse blows. Low beams are normal and all other lights and electronics function as they should AFAIK. I have removed the instrument panel and located the common ground which seems to be the source of a lot of electrical gremlins. I don’t see...

    Multiple Ignition Coil Failures

    Hi Everyone, I recently installed (3-months ago) all new ignition coils on my GX470. In the past 3 months, however, I’ve had 4 of the inviting coils go bad. Cylinder 2 then 7 then 6 then 3. I’m wondering what the heck could be going on here. I replaced the spark plugs at the same time also. No...

    The neverending battle with the bright ideas the PO has

    Doing some chassis electrical modification, I'll definitely do a write up on that even if just to stroke my own ego. But it seem the PO has been thinking (a dangerous pastime indeed) and came up with an idea. Now I pose to you, the people who have seen everything under the sun: What the hell...

    Hi all, I posted recently asking for help about trying to add a BT45-TOY bluetooth adapter to my 2006 LX470.

    Ford  2013 Ecco Boost F150

    My mother has a beautiful 2013 Ecco Boost F150. Absolutely no problems what so ever, until a man who claimed to be a mechanic got ahold of it. The A/C wasnt as cold as it had been but the compressor kicked on and off as it's supposed to with no problems other then the temp of the A/C so he tried...

    Possible Starter Problem?

    Howdy y'all! A few days ago I went to try to start my car (it's my daily, probably sat for a day?), had power and everything, I went to turn the key and nothing. No click, power is gone, no sound. So I look up some stuff saying it could be a starter problem so I get parts to replace within...

    I'm looking for a spare fuse block cover for the fuse/relay block under the hood on the drivers side. I used my spare harness to make an auxiliary fuse-relay block and now I can't find the damn cap.

    A/C refuses to turn off

    Hello everyone, first time poster here! About two weeks ago I finally managed to get a 1993 FZJ80 and join the LC club (lifelong Toyota owner though). The truck has some things that needed to be addressed and fixed that I was aware of and most of those fixes are coming along seamlessly. However...

    Diesel crank but no start

    Hi all, I have a HDJ80 24 valve manual which cranks but won't start, I have been searching far and wide for an answer with no joy. Any ideas? The immobilizer has been removed, which strangely was wired to the starter, and the ignition fuse has no power, although it still won't start if I wire...
