how do i find info about van using my v.i.n.

Shaun, In Japan Mitsu still sells parts for the older vehicles? That's good to know, I could then contact a 3rd party shipper in Japan who could go to the dealership, buy the parts for me and then ship them back. Otherwise, I wonder if there are used parts sellers in Japan (other than on Yahoo.co.jp...

how do i find info about van using my v.i.n.

My VIN is weird, PF8W-001500 I think Japan hadn't signed onto the international VIN agreement in 1994. PF8W is the frame type, i.e. Royal Exceed Long wheel base high roof Many people have the PE8W Super Exceed -- short wheel base (better for offroading, not as long) and high roof. You can see the fr...

isolated batteries

Did you isolate your two batteries? I saw different tolerances for isolators at Princess Auto and Canadian Tire... 80A, 90A, 120A... I have no idea what's needed. Is 80A / 150A surge enough? for example: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/DUAL-AUXILIARY-BATTERY-ISOLATOR-RELAY-WITH-COPPER-CABLES-COMPLETE-KIT-W-...

another mystery plug

Every time I see an unused plug connected to the electrical harness I wonder about its intended use. A plug not connected to anything... isn't that a waste? Makes me sad, LOL This time it's one buried far behind the glove box, with a bunch of orange wires going into it. I noticed it while I was poki...

Radio CD player

I just ordered a new 13-pin male connector for my van, I noticed two pins in the old one were much shorter than the other 11.

ECS shocks for PF8W

For me, the best "shocks" would be the suspension Citroen put in their DS and CX, the hydropneumatic one that uses liquid and gas. Apparently it's really good, so good in fact that you could drive a Citroen on only 3 wheels. (e.g. http://jalopnik.com/264716/citroen-gs-no-need-for-a-spare but there a...

Q. re. curtains

My van didn't come with curtains, I see rods, hooks, curtains on eBay in the UK and Australia. Some discussions mention "auto curtains". One fuse box translation from the UK says there is a 20A fuse for Curtains. Does that mean that for some models there is a dash button for the curtains? There does...

L400 rear window antenna

I wish Mitsubishi's management was as smart as their engineers... Cars can rely on two antennas for their radio and it is smart enough to decide which antenna signal to use? That was done back in the 1990s...

Now I'm going to have to check whether my radio is hooked up to both antennas!

thanks.

Royal exceed radio

Yes, there is supposed to be a Panasonic 6-CD Changer under the passenger seat, connected via that round 13-pin plug. My CD Changer never worked, though I haven't given up hope yet. There is a cassette deck in the radio, but it's pretty smart at detecting "fake" cassettes like the adapter someone ha...

Royal Exceed Corner sensors

What year model do you have?

I have the May 1994 Royal Exceed and it has no corner sensors that I know of. Though there is a parking pole in the front left corner.

Probably won't work, but how about using a magnet to tease it back out?

Based on what I saw at http://yahoo.co.jp I suspect that for different years the Panasonic model of the CD Changer may have differed.
