New to me 94 FZJ80. Been having a kind of strange intermitant problem with the electrical. I was kind of concerned driving the truck 800 miles home after buying it knowing there was some kind of electrical gremlin, but we made it with no issues. Basically, when I turn on the turn signal, I get the Christmas Tree effect.......Like it would do if the alt was going bad (Battery, brake, AT/P). But weird thing is that the lights don't stay on. They are not constant. Probably around 75% of the time (but not always), they light up when the turn signal is on, and flash with the signal.....They also sometimes(maybe 40% of the time) come on when I hit the brakes for maybe the first 2-3 seconds, then go off, even if I keep the brakes applied, they also come on (100% of the time) when I raise or lower the windows and stay on the entire time I am raising/lowering them and will stay on as long as one of the window buttons are being pushed. I have done a lot of searching, but it looks like most peoples Christmas tree effect is constant, it comes on and stays on, indicating a bad alt. Well, I have a feeling thats not the case, because as I've dug into the searches, I actually found a post from not the previous owner, but the one before him that the issue has been happening since around jan 09. See post..... https://forum.ih8mud.com/80-series-tech/266786-weird-flashing-dash-lights.html That owner supposedly eventually replaced the alt according to his post when he sold the truck and the PO, but I have no reciepts or paperwork to confirm that. But even if he didn't I would think the alt would have died by now if it was going bad then.....that has been probably 12-15k miles ago. The guy who sold the truck to me said it had been like that since he got it, and just never dug into (if it ain't broke, don't fix it, lol). But I want to get it resolved. Its obviously got to be something thats not right. Plus, it kind of freaks people out when they are in my truck and all the lights start flashing So, besides the standard check all the alt connections, does anyone have any suggestions. I'm just a newb with this LC, and honestly, dealing with electrical issues are not my specialty. I don't have a FSM yet, but I'm working on it. BTW - truck starts fine everyday, battery seems to be strong, nothing out of the ordinary electrically except for the Christmas tree lights. Just wanted to see if someone else might of had a similar problem and can help point me in the right direction. First things first though, I'll run by Autozone tommorow and have them run a check on the battery and alt just in case. I'll post up how that goes. Any other suggestions are appreciated!
