    Bad Ground/exterior lighting issues?

    My 97 FJ80 continues to blow the fuses for the turn signals, running lights, and brake lights. Head lights and flashers work. Has anyone experienced a similar issue? I’m assuming it’s a bad Ground and was wondering what/where the most likely culprit could be. Thanks for the help.

    ground problem?

    I a beginning to think my electrical problems are related to a bad ground wire or situation. I don't think two separate relays would go bad and Buzz at the same time. 1) There is a ground from the starter to the frame: it is like 0 or 00 size. 2) There is the factory ground from the negative...

    Mystery ground wire

    Hey folks. I'm getting Babe all out back together and things are going pretty well overall! Last night while installing the new carb I noticed this wire at the back of the engine bay coming off a screw to the firewall. It's black with a yellow stripe and from what I can see it's a ground. The...

    Ground connection for roof mounted accessories

    I'm installing several scene lights on the sides of my roof rack as well as a reverse light and light bar up front. I have a switch/power panel that goes under the hood and has positive leads running from the box to go to each accessory, but I'll need to run grounds from accessory on my own...

    1970 FJ40 Ground Questions

    Hi All - I had some electrical gremlins with my FJ40. Cleaned the fuse block and that cleared up a lot of issues. Two remaining questions: 1) My dash blinkers will not work. Is this just a matter of cleaning the blinker housings to get a solid ground connection to the metal dash? 2). Only one...

    Turning on lights kills engine, and hot taillight relay?

    Guys - hope all's well. Trying to ferret out a wiring issue on my new '87 60 project, where my tail, brake, and license plate lights won't turn on. As background, I bought the 60 "not running" a week ago, but with a new battery, oil change, and some manhandling of the gas pedal, it fired right...

    Nut size? - carb cooling fan ground wire to temp sensor bracket

    Can't seem to find this in any partslist online, so hoping someone knows the answer off-hand (before I start trial and error). Anyone know the size and type of nut that fits on the bolt where the carb cooling fan grounding wire is attached to the temp sensor bracket? '83 FJ60 if it matters...

    Ground Gremlins Growing

    So a few months ago my battery light came on. I whipped into a parts store and tossed a 100Amp alternator on it. 3 days later the light came back so I went to the parts store. They tested both the battery and alternator. Both checked out OK. Verified elsewhere. Getting steady 13.6-14...
