Can't locate parasitic draw

Well I narrowed it down to the alternator fusible link and tested the diode on my alternator and it's totally fine! the draw is still there even with the alternator completely disconnected. There must be a bad diode somewhere between the alternator and the battery.

Can't locate parasitic draw

Ever since I have owned my L400 it has had a parasitic drain that draws about 280 mAmps. There is a battery switch that I have to constantly use to prevent a dead battery. I've tested every fuse inside underneath the steering wheel, and under the hood and couldn't find anything. Does anyone have any...

Diesel heater fuel pickup

So I bought a diesel air heater for my L400 and wondering about plumbing it into the vehicle’s existing fuel tank. It comes with a small fuel pickup (see photo) that I would put in the bottom of my fuel tank, but I’m wondering if it create too much vacuum inside the fuel tank since I won’t be runnin...

Clicking sounds after accelerating

I have a 1996 L400 and started noticing a single pop or click noise everytime after I accelerate and get up to highway speeds from being stopped. Sound is coming from the passengers footwell or behind the glovebox.

Runs great other than the mysterious noise!

4m40 engine rattle

After doing some minor work to my engine I've noticed a loud engine rattle while driving ONLY between 1500-2000 rpm. Has been doing it for about 2000 km, but no other symptoms. Doesn't do it in neutral, so its difficult to tell where its coming from in the engine but sounds like the driver's side. I...

ICBC insurance coverage

I'm trying to get a sense of how ICBC handles delica's in the event of an accident, or even a minor fender bender. When I initially transferred insurance from old owner, they didn't have a gold book value on my L400 so they took my word for the price I paid . Is it true they tend to writeoff delica'...

I am definitely keen to make my own too.I've read that you can buy just the gutter mounted clamps, and then the rest would be easy. Just not sure where to source out the clamps, princess auto?

Cheaper fridge alternatives

Thanks everyone for the advice, I ended up finding a Dometic CF-040 fridge/ freezer for very cheap on Amazon. They run on DC current which is nice, I plan on hooking it up directly to my second battery and do some trial and error to see how long the battery lasts. Maybe get a solar panel to help it ...
