    Fix for ABS, VSC TRAC, VSC OFF, & Brake lights remain on no CEL, or how to repair an ECU

    Hopefully this post saves you some money by showing you how to potentially repair your skid control ECU rather than replacing/buying a new/used one (skid control ECU part # 89540-60160). These instructions do require the ability to solder surface mount components and use either an oscilloscope...

    Spring problems

    I purchased a 1980 fj 40 from a dealer and didn't think I was buying a bunch of crap put together from several different years until getting into it. The newest project, or should I call it the newest problem, is the springs. I orderd replacement springs from skyjacker. When They arrived...

    The Never-ending Problems with my 87 FJ60

    Alright, the following has officially driven me crazy. First, a little background. I got this Fj60, Sue, from a friend for cheap. Entirely stock 2f engine.

    Steering Problems

    I've been trying to get the steering of my '60 as tight as possible, given what it is. Several years ago, we had a rebuilt steering box installed and the results were okay. I was having clunking associated with turning in the front. Just got the truck back with new tie rod ends, which it...

    Alarm/power locks problems

    I have a 2000 LC that Ive owned for 12 years. I don't have the keyless remote anymore, so I just use the standard key to lock and unlock my doors. Yesterday I went to unlock the door in the morning and the alarm went off (stock alarm, Ive never set it before). I hopped in and started it up...

    83' BJ42 24v Glow Plug Problems

    My 83' BJ42 doesn't start well unless its warm weather. I notice that the glow plug light stays on for the about 2-3 seconds if its 30 or 80 degrees. When it does finally start up it blows plenty of white smoke for about 15 seconds. Would this be the glow plug timer causing this problem? Thanks

    Power Antenna Problems

    I bought my HDJ81 knowing that the mask was broken. PO told me that I could just buy a new mask with the white plastic strip with the gear teeth on it and just insert it down into the assembly. Well this power antenna assembly isn't like that. That is only for the 96 and new cruiser's and...

    I have a '99 with 185k miles, and turning the ignition at times does not start, engine doesn't turn over. Very intermittent and no specific pattern. New battery, no difference. Dealer checked wires and connections and starter seem ok. Could it be the ignition switch? Turning the key to...

    Dumbest thing PO did?

    Did a search on the forum and found there wasn't a concise thread about the foibles and follies created by previous owners that have had to be remedied by us in order to keep our rigs on the road and cruising smooth. I thought it might be good therapy and a good way to feel some camaraderie when...
