Get your charging system checked. You may not be discharging at idle but you may not be producing enough volts to run the system correctly hence the sputtering

SOURCE: car will not jump start

Check battery voltage. If volts are very low, put on charger. In many cases, you can't jump through a really dead battery... not enough voltage gets through to computer etc to make systems operate.
Battery may be used up... if it will not take a charge, replace it and check charging system before driving. PS: use a charger to charge battery. If it is very low, you candamage charging system in other vehicle. Also,,, You cleaned terminals already RIGHT???

check the feed on the back of the alternator (live), then check the engine earth if the truck has been lifted or raised the earth will be poor. try running an earth fron the exhaust studs to a chassis member.

SOURCE: tail lights and dash lights keep blowing fuse when you start it

you have a short somewhere, unplug the tail lamps one at a time and see if the fuse still blows. if you disconnect one and the fuse does not blow and everything else works, the problem is in the tail light assembly. if not, the short is most likely in the wiring harness which can be a bit tricky to diagnose. alldata.com/diy offers one year subscriptions to cars with all the repair info and they have excellent wiring schematics. dont forget to try the front marker lamps in addition to the tail lamps.

1997 hilux all warning light are on but every thing works ok


Just check the plugs under the dash, check senders from master cylinder, engine block and radiator, then check fuses, if you have crossed any water, your plugs underneath may be shorting out. and check earth leads on battery and block strap.

My power pack has no power at the leads to jump start my vehicle


are you connecting the power pack correctly. When jump starting the red power lead goes on the positive battery terminal (+ to + ) and the black lead goes on the engine (- to -) not the battery as this stops a power surge that can destroy the ECM. Blowing fuses indicates that you may be connecting black to red and this amounts to a dead short which will blow fuses.

Reset (replace) computer box


The fact that all your electrics disappeared including all dashboard lights indicates a faulty battery/connection.

Check the battery terminals for cleanliness and tightness. Check the black earth lead for cleanliness and tightness where it connects to the engine block/bodywork. Try adding an extra black battery lead - connect it to a suitable point on the engine or bodywork

My daughter car battery went dead had a jump start but her cousin put the leads on the wrong terminal could this have blown the main fuse as no lights at all put new battery on today


Yes this will defiantly blow the main engine fuse. This fuse is located in the engine compartment and is usually bolted down with 10mm bolts.
