G'day everyone,

I have a Landy Disco 2 + Prado 1KZ engine conversion and it failed to start this evening.

The car vehicle was fine this morning and I did stop by a few places before rushing off to a meeting at a school. It failed to start when I wanted to go home right after the meeting.

Here's what I tried:

1. Initially I tried to start the car via ignition and it failed to start. The sound it made when I try the ignition sounded normal.

2. Had a local staff's Pajero to jumpstart the car via a pair of jumper cables, failed. We thought it was the jumper cables being the problem so we borrowed another set which came with a Toyota Rush as standard, failed too.

3. Called a mechanic to come over and diagnose the problem. Mechanic tried using heavy duty jumpers to start the car via a new Isuzu D-MAX (2014 Rodeo), failed too.

4. After some diagnostic checks done by the mechanic, he concluded that the landy needs to be towed to their workshop for a closer look on the battery and the alternator. He further added that the carbon piece in the alternator might need some replacing.

Additional info:

The 1KZ engine had a dry cell battery installed, and mechanic decided that the battery could be one of the problem too.

I'm desperate for answers so I really need the opinions from offroaders and enthusiasts such as you good people to give me some insight as to what the problem might be. Thanks heaps you guys!


and I'm from Sabah (Borneo Island), Malaysia.
