  4. Dash wiring loom

    When I installed a 12v accessory socket in mine, I used an original socket complete with wiring and tapped into the cigarette lighter loom to supply the power, that way power is cut when ignition is off, easy as to do and made it so it all look OEM. Yours being a 2013 might have the necessary plug already in place, Cheers CONROD

  8. Hilux Un-BRAKE-able

    GO and GET an independent Brake specialist to take it for a drive and if its as bad as you say it is get them to put it in writing, or if they are feeling generous might even contact the service dept on your behalf and explain their finding. ( Doubt it though ) Seems extremely weird that Toyota don't want anything to do with it , especially if its the selling dealer, Brand New $50,000 plus vehicle, Is there anything else you need to disclose as to the use of the vehicle, before, during, and after the lead up to the brake failure
  9. 97-05 hilux clock in dash

    Hi mate I too was going down the same path to put one in my 2001 Work Mate. The plug for the clock is in place ready to plug in. Seeing how you already have the clock in place,you will see the plug sitting in a clip in slot directly BELOW where the clock will live, Push the tab down on the plug and it will release then simply pop it into the clock,how much did you pay if you don't mind me asking, I was quoted $150 from the wreckers ( if they had one),so I made do with the original one in the radio,
  10. Hilux De-Sludge

    Give this article a read mate, contact them as they might have a distributor down your way, My way of thinking is if you are going to solve an issue do it right once Cheers Conrod
  11. Vibration/shudder

    Have you got underneath and checked out the centre bearing in the tail shaft, could be flogged out, You don't really mention if the smell of a slipping clutch is still present, that could of just been a coincidence with the passing truck
  12. Hilux spotlight connection in wiring loom

    Positive earth, if that's how he thinks steer well clear of his advise! They are NEGATIVE EARTH, open the bloody bonnet, look at which terminal earths to the body, then ring him up and tell him he is a Fool. And as for running separate wiring because the OEM wiring is too small your only using it to trigger the bloody relay, then the necessary power will be supplied from the relay to the lights by a decent size wire capable of your requirements
  13. Hilux spotlight connection in wiring loom

    Hi Brickpaver, nice to meet you too mate,I hard wired mine so as soon as I flash or hit high beam they come on.I did it this way as I didnt want to drill holes for a switch and also run additional wires simply to have a switch.I figured the more I keep it original the better.I put an inline 30amp blade fuse(waterproof ) in the power supply wire from the (battery to terminal 30 on the relay )and also a 10 amp inline fuse in the wire from the RED wire on the back of the headlight plug to terminal 86 on the relay.(this wire triggers the relay so if you are running a switch run it from the red wire on the back of the headlight plug to the switch and back to terminal 86 on the relay,and as you can see the relay earths out through RED/Yellow wire on back of headlight plug when lights are on high beam, hope this helps you out mate, cheers CONRO PS Narva make a neat switch with a foglight symbol which illuminates and it fits perfectly into the hilux accessorie blanked off holes- Part#-63027BL,Let us know how you go Edited June 19, 2011 by CONROD

  15. O2 Sensors

    Have you physically removed them and checked them out, The threads are not smothered in grease ? A hard to remove oxygen sensor may come out easier with rust penetrating oil, WD 40 and the like. Tests show that many penetrants not only loosen oxygen sensors, but also poison them. Oxygen sensors are sensitive to "poisoning" if liquid of any type (that leaves a residue) penetrates the inner platinized surface of the zirconia cell (the heart of the zirconia type assembly).
