Re: Strange Sound

That makes sense - the DRL is located behind the headlight (from what I can remember). Thanks. I will check that out.

Strange Sound

In the last week or so I have been hearing a buzzing sound from the area above the gas pedal and behind the fuse box and it only happens when my headlight switch or e-brake is on. It seems to be coming from the headlight area. The sound is not constant and everything is working normally. Any thought...

Re: Smoke Trail and loss of Power

I have had two turbos crap the bed on me - one was an incorrect bearing size that caused the problem, the other, not so sure. Either way, I agree with the other posters re: turbo problem and if a mechanic agrees, you may have well found the problem.

Good luck

Re: Instant Loss of Power and restarts a minute later?

I had a similar thing happen to me and it was the battery cable connection. New cables, new connection, bye-bye problem. I hope you get it sorted.

Re: Lost power. Max 50km/h

what jfarsang said - get your timing belt checked - when mine slipped a tooth I could only hit 50 kph max - this does not sound like a turbo related issue.

Re: failing turbo?

These are the symptoms that I have experienced: 1) a failing turbo could be characterized by a noise like a rattling chain (high-pitched rattle) under the van when under load; 2) If it gets really bad, the van may increase in both rpms and speed voluntarily, which means detonation is forthcoming. Wh...

Re: Headlight Combo Switch

Yeah - I have looked at that post multiple times and to be honest I have left the wiring up the experts - I would likely screw it up. I was aware that the headlight switch was weak and like the idea of either a dedicated headlight toggle or the wiring setup that tardis posted. Either way, someone el...

Re: Headlight Combo Switch

Thanks guys. RichD - That is what I mean, although my wiper switch is working just fine. I have had the headlight switch replaced and repaired a couple of times, so am on to looking for a good used or even a new one, but they are pretty expensive new. David - have you installed a remote headlight co...

Headlight Combo Switch

Hey there - I am in need of a headlight combo switch for my 1992 exceed. CCA does not have any available at the moment. Does anyone have one that works and that is for sale?

Thanks in advance.

Re: WVO while apartment living

This has been on my list of things to do for about a year and I am in a position now where I can seriously consider a WVO conversion. I do not have the means (space / time) to filter myself, so was going to put the feelers out there to see if there was any interest in a co-op type setup for the Vict...

Re: Can Anyone Shed Some Light ?

No - I didn't measure the amperage - too many things were going wrong so I deferred to the experience of Glen and his crew. They did indicate that there was too much load overall.

Re: Can Anyone Shed Some Light ?

The combo switch did not melt, but it did get hot and emitted this totally bizarre smell (not a typical burnt circuit smell). The most recent repair involved re-soldering all of the connections on the combo switch. Together with all of the recent changes (DRL, headlights, lower watt daytime running ...

Re: Can Anyone Shed Some Light ?

Hey - I suffered from a similar problem - for me it turned out that there was too much load on the system. I recently had a new DRL module wired in, new headlights (Depo vs. Soueast), and lower watt bulbs for the daytime running lights. So far so good. I don't have enough familiarity with the ins-an...

Re: moving to Revelstoke

I'd like to know as well - I spend a lot of time working in the Kootenays and Revelstoke is one of three homes away from home.
