Headlights staying on

Well, at least the headlight issue has been solved - one burned out low beam and a rat's nest behind the passenger side headlight cluster. Wires all chewed up including the ground. Strange to get such bizarre symptoms. I measured only 3 volts on all the headlight wires with the wires connected, jump...

Headlights staying on

Nope that's not it, but I did get more information - what's happening is the vehicle is staying in accessory mode even with the key off, so the driving lights stay on and the radio and temp gauges, as well as power to the wipers. If I disconnect the battery terminal, it all shuts off and stays off w...

Headlights staying on

I found the ground leads to the head was loose. But given that the problem was intermittent only time will tell if that was the issue. Not sure if those have any relationship to the above circuits.

Headlights staying on

So it seems that the headlight/glow plug issue are related. I reconnected my battery again this morning and the lights now work as they should as does the glow relay. This has me stumped as I don't seen any possible connection between the two circuits.

Headlights staying on

Hey all, I've got a strange thing happening to my L300 these days. The headlights - both inners and one outer - are always drawing power. Not a lot but you can see the filaments glow even with the vehicle shut off. When you actually apply power to the lights one of the inners then doesn't illuminate...

My head hurts

It seems fine just by disconnecting and plugging the vacuum line. But it does make me wonder if the vacuum lines are incorrectly routed because it kicks on as soon as you attach the line. i.e. it isnt on a switched vacuum line.

My head hurts

Of all the @%^&$#%! After much head banging, teeth gnashing, and 3AM angst, it turns out it's the friggin' EGR valve somehow. With the vacuum line connected to it, it pukes out heavy smoke, runs rough, pressurizes the crankcase and when you rev it, clatters like it's spun a rod bearing. Disconnect t...

My head hurts

Hey all, I got a 92 L300 being a pig. It blew a head gasket a while back, and so I bought a head and gasket kit online. Everything went well with the head swap, but after a couple of days, the gasket started leaking coolant. That was a major irritation. The gasket kit was one of those inexpensive eb...

Re: Pajero engine swapped into Delica

Thanks all, and it did turn into a bit of a nightmare. I'm just surprised nothing was on the net to guide me through it. Some differences were so subtle you only find out when it's too late and then you have a fight on your hands. Oh well, it's out there now for the next poor sap who has to go throu...

Pajero engine swapped into Delica

I recently had the odious challenge of retrofitting a Pajero 4d56T engine into a Delica, and I thought I’d describe the difference between the two engines in case anyone else ever has to do this. I looked all over the web and couldn’t find anywhere that described this, yet according to the boys up a...
