I need to find a 12v power source in my 85 FJ60 that will supply power to an 85 amp solenoid with the key in the ON position only. Any ideas boys?
Thanks,
Russ :cool:

85A or 85W? In the first case, you're probably talking a #2 cable from the batt & getting the "on" signal elsewhere. There are several 10A fuses in the box you could probably tap for the latter. Check with a test lamp.

the ignition circut should work for you, this is what I use for my dual battery set ups in the Cruisers

if you need the tap inside the cab(which is how I did mine), then the fusepanel is the place, they make a little fuse tap just for this, its not drawing any amount of power, its just a trigger to the selnoid.

if under the hood, then prolly the best bet is right at the coil, I would guess that the pos post would be the correct place.

Where's the best place to tap in?
And dual battery is what this is for.
Thanks again,
