Re: Diff lock troubleshooting

Hmm..... good point.
I must figure how to check if my ABS actually works because when my front axle was refurbished Dennis pointed out that the sensors looked quite vrot. I don't feel any juddering when braking heavily.

Re: Diff lock troubleshooting

I had a brain wave during the night. I'm not going to sukkel with electronic fault finding. Going to get an on/on toggle switch and run power to the solenoids independent of the vehicles wiring loom to bypass the electronics. That way the OEM diff lock should work same as if I fitted an aftermarket ...

Re: Gear Oil Pictures

I've changed many cars from mineral to synthetic, both engines and drivetrains, and never had problems with seals. Jeeps are apparently very fussy about oil so maybe the reported problems were just a Jeep thing. The only problem I've had in this department was after adding teflon treatment to a moto...

Re: Diff lock troubleshooting

When you guys switch on your diff lock does a light glow inside your switch, just behind the difflock label on the switch? I'm just wondering if that blob in there is actually a covered LED or maybe a fusible link of some sort. There is no continuity through it hence thinking it might be a covered L...

Re: Diff lock troubleshooting

Thanks. :salute: I found the controller and gave the plug a bit of a clean with contact cleaner/lubricator. No difference. I then re-routed power from the "off solenoid" to the "on solenoid". No response from the "on solenoid". So it seems I have more than one problem, power supply and stuck solinoi...

Tuning for altitude?

Back in the day before life became complicated we used to tune motors differently at the coast compared to up north. Does that still apply with modern computerised motors? I bought my 4.8 Patrol in Gauteng and the vehicle is now based in the Cape. It pings a bit every now and then if I put foot, or ...

Re: Happy birthday Spike

Thanks guys. I wasn't expecting it to be acknowledged on this forum. Asante sana. :salute: I'm a miserable git that doesn't do birthdays :oldtimer: but rather than passing the miserable git genes down the family tree I gave my 4yo granddaughter a surprise and collected her from school and headed for...
