    Hello,
    I am a TLCA member and pet of ONSC Landcruiser club out of North Carolina. I am currently headed back to NC from Vegas and was wandering if any of you could recommend a good cruiser shop to diagnose and or fix an issue I have developed. I am currently in Vegas but managed to get my lx450 running so I am just going to start making my way east on I-40 and pass through Albuquerque NM.

    Since everything is closed today I rather start driving and stop in Albuquerque tonight and figure out the issue in the morning.

    So anybody can help would be greatly appreciated. A good Landcruiser or Toyota shop would be great thanks.

    Can you describe the issues? A lotta knowledge here.
    Otherwise- toyo masters (505) 890-8696
    Good luck! If you get stranded let us know... may be able to rustle up a rescue. Plenty of tow rigs on here!

    Personally, I think the collective knowledge of our FZJ80 group would be a better bet. Have you pulled any codes? Autozone will do it for free.

    Michael Potter at Aztec Automotive in Santa Fe is a good bet. I'm with Dumpolina and pappy, though. What's going on with your lc?

    Del,

    Sorry for the late response fellas. I really appreciate the response. I think I narrowed down my issue to a faulty ignition switch.

    After hours of testing the old starter, new starter, batteries, battery terminals, grounds.

    I hot started the truck with a wire to the ignition cable from the battery and the truck is running perfect. So I just decided to make my way east and keep driving. I am already in Amarillo and at the rate I am driving I should be back in NC tomorrow night.

    I just have to leave the truck on or hot start it again. No big deal though.

    Thank you all for your response.
