Question about 1971 Toyota Landcruiser
My bf was listening to the radio with the ignition on when the car just went dead. The battery is working and we have power to the headlights but we don't have any lights on the dash and we cannot get the car to start at all. After much process of eliminating possible causes and buying of new fuses etc my bf feels that it may be the main wiring in the actual fuse box itself as he plugged in a 30 amp battery and low and behold the dash lights turned on. The only problem is that he is unsure which wire is which. Can't you please describe what em need to do. Thanks Shannon
If I recall correctly, there is a FUSIBLE LINK on the lead that connects to the regulator output then goes through the firewall into the dashboard area. The fusible link will be black or gray plastic and will be stamped with the words FUSIBLE LINK. This can be cut out and replaced with a fuse holder of any type, and an appropriate 30A fuse can be used.
If the fusible link is not at fault, it can be either the IGNITION SWITCH or the IGNITION RELAY (under the dashboard... follow the wires from the ignition switch).

two first things to check fuel and spark ...fuel make sure your fuel pump is working its messy but the easiest way is to pull the fuel line "only one connection" and turn key to on then press gas pedal and gas should pump out if not fuel pump is bad... if thats not it you want to check for spark easiest way is to pull one of the spark plug wires and stick a screwdriver in the end then hold the screwdriver to where the metal shank is approx. 1/4" away from any metal surface ... hold the screwdriver without touching the metal shank!!! have someone crank the engine you should see a spark intermittently between the screwdriver and the metal youre holding it close to.. if thats ok the only other thing i can suggest is get a battery with more cca "cold cranking amps"..hope this helps..OH YA ON A SAFER NOTE!!!...DONT LOOK FOR SPARK WITH THE ENGINE WET WITH FUEL..

SOURCE: car wont start
test light on neg with key on power at both sides of coil ???? next test light on bat plus put to coil neg and have somone turn car over if test light flashes and still no spark coil is bad if test light no flash ignighter is most likely bad the ignighter switches ground on your coil for spark

I've had similar problems with my cars, and everytime it was a bad ground or power wire, or corrosion on the terminals. Get a wire brush and clean both battery connecters..even a little corrosion can cause a no power situation. If you have a test light, connect the ground of the test light to the negative cable of the battery and touch light to the positive cable...if the test light doesn't light up, then you have a break or lose connection in your ground wire. Trace the battery ground to the engine block and clean that also...the smallest thing can interupt power...hope this helps..

Fuse board you are looking for is at passenger side (left side) kick panel to the side of your feet. There's a fuse box in there -additional to the main one located in engine bay. Suggest getting a $5 (or less) test light (looks like a pen), connect one end onto a clean bolt (not painted), and push the pen end onto the tiny opening on the top of the fuse- if its good then a light comes on in the tool, if blown then u get nothing. Easier and faster than pulling every fuse out to check.

Dude the wires at the trunk inside break from opening and closing. you must peel back the wires covering to expose and fix these wires.
