Question about 1992 Toyota Land Cruiser
I have a 24v 5cyc cruiser with 2 new batteries (3mths) which won't start cold. The belts to the alt. are tight, but I think the prob may be alt. not charging. Have found 1 batt needs a charge and am doing so.
Is the prob likely to be alt or the series parallel switch???
If you don't yet own one, invest under $20 US in a cheap digital multimeter, they will pay you back quickly and if you want to look into your own electrical problems, you'll need it.
Also handy to have one for doing simple electrical work around home.
If you are in the US and have a Harbor Freight nearby, you can buy one for <$10. They are available from any electronic/electrical supply or auto parts stores.
With the engine running, you should measure >13 volts on either even at an idle and the nominal fully charged value is 12.6 volts with the engine off.
