Re: wont start 1995 80 series landcruiser
One of the red wires on your battery works the power to the ignition. If a wire has melted it`s insulation, the wire could be burnt out. Also, repeated starting attempts will cause the wires to get very hot. Why did you change the battery ? Was it just flat or didi you have this problem before you changed it.?

Hi Waza, Why don't you guys don't like to give us the info we need to be able to help you? Is the engine cranking or is it failing to turn? What fuel are you starting up on? Have you checked for spark and are you getting it? Please let us have info? Regards John
Check your air filter housing and the air intake piping. There is a reason why there are high level air intakes available for your vehicle, it is to stop water getting inside the combustion chambers. There is a possibility that your engine has sucked water into the induction system. It needs to be checked and cleaned as soon as possible. Water in the combustion chambers WILL kill your engine.
I am not for sure, but I know a way to check. Start your vehicle and remove the hot side terminal from your battery. If it dies instantly, it is your alternator. If not, it is something else. If the alternator is dead, it will die as soon as you take off the terminal.
I would clean the battery connecters or possibly change them. How old is the battery? sometimes when battery get old, they have enough juice to crank the motor but not enough to start it..But then again, if it doesn't crank at all sometimes, it could certainly be a bad or loose battery terminals..Start with this since its the simplest and easiest and could very well be your problem. hope this helps
