SOURCE: Need to fit coil springs to Landcruiser 79 series ute (2004)

You need a coil spring compresser, and the proper skill level to use it.
If you try to change the coils without a compresser, you CAN & WILL GET HURT. Coil springs are not something to fool about with if you do not have the proper tools. These things are danagerous.

SOURCE: 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.?

SOURCE: 89 toyota celica st not starting but clicking

There is either a cable not getting a very good connection, solenoid has problems, or there is a wiring leading to a relay that has a bad connections. How is your ignition? Is it loose or have loose wires?

also check the magnetic switch mounted on the starter housing, is supplied by current from the starting switch circuit of the ignition switch. This magnetic action of the switch mechanically engages the starter clutch assembly and electrically closes the heavy switch which connects it to the battery. The starting switch circuit consists of the starting switch contained within the ignition switch, a transmission neutral safety switch or clutch pedal switch, and the wiring necessary to connect these in series with the starter solenoid or relay.

Sounds like the switch on the clutch pedal needs adjusted. Is the floor mat bunched up under the pedal, I've seen that. It could also be dirty ground connections. There are several. Not only the battery ground but smaller ones also. A bad ground can mean low voltage to the ECM and injectors. Does the start solenoid click. If it does may be bad battery connections on either end. If it doesn't may be bad connections in the small wires to the solenoid. The alternator could be consuming the available connections when the battery is recharged from starting then the ECM and injectors can have enough. Why it would run rough for a while. The first place to look is always the electrical connections. A lot of people have paid for new starters because of bad connections. I had a friend kept buying alternators from his trusted mechanic because somebody had removed the ground wires from his engine to the chassis. (This was before he asked me to look at it. Of course!)

SOURCE: 2003 Prius sometimes will not start, engine light comes on. Removing key from ignition, reinserting key, & turning wheel till it locks will then allow the car to start. Engine light stays on for a

I had a wire connector on the front of the engine that had so much tension, the wires broke. I didn't notice until a wet day when the car wouldn't start (and the Check Engine light was on). (The error code was related to an Emissions error.) The connector is located on the engine, front, just left of center. Hope this helps!

My landcruiser 79 series ute over heated temp gauge went into red replaced pump belts filled up with new coolant but now the gauge just stays in red permanently even when u first start car from cold.


You should replace the temp guage sender unit. First disconnect wire from sender and with a test light connect one end to wire and one to earth turn ignition on and gauge should start at base and slowly work its way up. Faulty sender. If gauge still on full when disconnected from sender then gauge is either stuck and need replacing

No charge?


The batteries on the diesel 'cruisers are strange in that under normal running the two are wired in parallel. When you turn the key to the "start" position, the battery relay wires them in series to provide 24 volts to the starter. Therefore, if either one of the batteries dies, you won't be able to start the truck as both batteries are required in order to provide 24 volts.

The wiring diagrams are available in Toyota publication RM315E. A search of the ih8mud forums should provide you with a download link.

96 voyager stalls won't turn over after some time it goes


1- under the hood their is a two relays Fuel pump and engine cut off. locate both relays. Next time the vehicle will not start have someone inside the vehicle turn the key to start and if feel with your fingers the top of the relay and listen for the CLICK. It is possible that one of the relays is sticky. I would just replacement as they are only 10-12 bucks from most dealers and auto parts stores. If this does corrected the problem next time the vehicle does not start bang the gas tank with a sometime and try it again. If it starts after banging then you fuel pump motor is sticking
