    Intermittent starting

    Hi all, 1996 UK spec HDJ80 (1HD-FT) with 24 to 12 volt conversion. It has developed intermittent starting issues after 3 days of constant water crossings and mud in the Central Kalahari a few days ago. Nothing up to bonnet (hood...) level but constant water. Quite regularly this happens...

    FJ60 Starting Issue

    Hello Mud Family! Question for you all. My FJ60 has trouble starting (sometimes). This issue typically happens when the car has sat for a while but is not always the case. When I crank the motor, I will just hear a click and no cranking. I will have to be very specific with my key turn to...

    Fuel Pump diagnosis

    Hello fellow mudders. I had a crank but no start issue out of nowhere yesterday. First thought was F***!, the immobilizer issue has struck me! But no, I quickly ruled that out, when I shot some starting fluid into the throtttle body and it started right up....and then died. Not getting fuel. I...

    Lag in Ignition and starting up

    Starting to see an intermittent problem in the way my truck has been starting for the past couple of weeks. The basic issue is that I turn the key over and the engine doesn't attempt to turn over until after a couple of seconds. This happens when the truck is hot or cold and it doesn't seem that...

    Phantom starting problem

    Last year I had a problem with my car - it started turning over during the night and since it was in gear it drove slowly against the handbrake into the fence. It was still trying to push over the fence when I woke. Since then, it has been to the auto elec and they said that they couldn't find...

    HDJ81 24v Starting System Issues

    After a week and a half of sitting in a garage my HDJ81 is refusing to crank. Everything seems to work normally until I turn the key to the "start" position, when a bunch of relays can be heard clicking but the starter doesn't even try to crank. So far I have tested the following: -Starter...

    Hiccup While Starting

    Right after the engine starts, it drops RPMs and then goes back up again and idles fine. I've only noticed it recently, haven't done much that I suspect would have caused it. Any ideas on what could be the issue? Tried searching but didn't find anything. Thanks everyone

    94 Starting Issues

    Hello All, Sometimes my 94 doesn't want to start. For instance, I will drive it to work, come out 10 hours later and when I turn the key I get nothing. Pop the hood, shake the battery a little bit and it fires right up. Seems to only happen after I have driven it and let it sit outside. When I...

    HJ60, 24v system, battery gauge starts at 16V and jumps to 26v after starting engine

    Just that, two brand-new batteries. When I turn the key to the first stop the gauge registers at about 18-20 V and battery light is illuminated and then when I go to start, the gauge shoots up past 24 and stays at 26 V. I have to be honest I didn't notice it before. Help?

    What's Better, Two 12V Batteries In Parallel, Or Two 6V Batteries In Series

    While reading the current thread "HJ60 starter system issue" I started thinking about dual batteries in a 12 volt system. This is something I've wondered about before, but never could get any definitive answers for. My question is this: which can be stronger/better, dual 12V batteries wired up...

    62 starts intermittently (aka gremlin #1)

    Starting about 2 days ago, I noticed an intermittent starting issue. Once in a while, when I turned the key to engage the starter, all power to the truck would drop off. Fortunately, it would start right up on the 2nd attempt but the clock would be reset. I figured that I had to learn how to...
