Alberta Registration (Out of Province)

My feeling (with no data to back it up so...) is that the study was based on ALL RHD vehicles, the majority of which are sports car types bought by younger men (boys). These low, fast and furious vehicles get nailed passing without clear visibility around other vehicles. The L300/L400 are so tall wi...

1993 L300 Drivers Seat Wanted

The foam just breaks down over time regardless of driving distance. Mine was completely gone on the right side with the driver sliding in and out.

1993 L300 Drivers Seat Wanted

Hey Phil,

Take the seat to an upholsterer. Mine was in sad shape, too. He replaced the foam and actually managed to save the fabric. Patched it a bit from inside. Still a tad worn but still matches the other seat and very comfortable now.

Cheers, Alex

Can't locate parasitic draw

I just went through this on my L300. No fuses pulled showed any difference but I also checked the fusible links, which I’d assume you may also have. A set of wires by the battery, hooked in on the positive side. Maybe 3 or 4 of them. Pull each of those. Although one of mine did stop the drain I stil...

I was changing the lower radiator hose and saw this piece of paper stuck under the bottom of the A/C condenser. I guess its been riding around there for a little over 11 years. :o

L300 Parasitic Voltage Drain ?!!!

The next job on my list was to replace the radiator hoses and thermostat. As I was removing the thermostat housing bolts I dropped the ratchet and it hung up in the wire loom below...and the loom started to smoke. On closer inspection the smoke was coming from the connection at the alternator where ...

L300 Parasitic Voltage Drain ?!!!

Thanks for that link, sck_nogas. I considered the battery isolation switch but decided to just isolate the offending circuit: Lights. I installed a simple toggle switch in the dash switch.jpg and wired it in just behind the fusible link junction box (down stream from the fusible link). I used spade ...

L300 Parasitic Voltage Drain ?!!!

Getting closer. The drain stopped when I pulled the fusible link for the lights. However pulling the fuses in the fuse box did not stop the drain.

So, would that indicate a ground fault between the fusible link and the fuse box? I’m thinking so.

L300 Parasitic Voltage Drain ?!!!

A week ago I came out to start the van, after a -21C night and the battery was dead. I thought I must have not closed the door properly; sometimes the seat belt gets caught in the door... The battery was frozen solid. I brought it in and thawed it out, tried to charge it but it was a goner. Bought a...

What did you do TO your Delica today?

Installed new headlights. The old ones were cracked and the chrome interior had dulled, which I had spray painted with chrome paint to try to fix but it was not ideal. I bought these https://www.crazythegod.com/car-brand/mitsubishi/crazythegod-delica-l300-1993-present-van-4d-projector-glass-headligh...
