Hi , ok first find the big red wire going into the coil you need to supply power to the coil with a toggle switch that you can turn on and off because if you leave the coil enetgized it will become saturated and fail/ then you need to add the starter button into the circuit /find the wire on the solenoid and if you send power to it, it should make the starter spin / once the coil is energized and your able to jump the starter you should have a running engine

Resetting service indicator


1) Make sure ignition is off
2) push & hold in left button (daytrip reset)
3) while holding in, turn ignition key into pos.1
4) keep holding button pushed in while "Test 1" appears in display
5) after a further approx. 5 seconds oil service inspection will appear (whichever is due)
6) release button when oil service/inspection are displayed
7) pushing and holding in the button for appr. 5 secs will reset the service interval
8) release button and switch off ignition. When restarting interval should be reset
hope this works.

It sounds like the wiring to the key was rerouted to the button. Does it come with the push button as standard, or was it installed @ a later date?

Thank you for contacting Fixya. Does this help? Let us know.

Having problems with fuel system they something about a switch i need to turn on


If you are not getting fuel at all I think they may be talking about the fuel cut off switch. Below I posted a picture of its location for you and where you see the blue arrow, just push down on that button to reset it. Not sure as to why it would have popped and you may have other problems if it continues to pop. Ford put that in their vehicle incase of an accident to cut off the fuel supply to limit a fire due to gas. I hope this is the "switch" you are talking about and I hope it helps you.....Good luck.

1985 Toyota Pickup Horn


Probably the switch in the steering wheel, or fuse, but usually horn fuse works other things too such as cig lighter or radio. If everything else is working fine, then to troubleshoot you'll need a testlight. I would start with the wiring harness where the steering collumn plugs in and decipher which wire is the horn wire. Put the test light clip on +power, then check the wires on the collumn side one by one, pushing the horn button on each one. The horn switch is the wire that makes the light blink when you push the button. If you try all the wires and none make the light blink, then its probably a problem with the horn switch in the s. wheel. Does it have an after market steering wheel? Because aftermarket wheels often have crappy horn switches in them. Also could be a horn relay if it has one. If you listen carfully while pushing the horn, you should hear the relay faint clicking. If you hear this, then the switch is working, but the relay might not be. Follow the sound to find it if you hear it. Test all sides of the relay with your light. Should get power constant on one term, and the other two should light when the horn button is pushed. Hope this helps. Cheers.
