  1. yup talking to myself Was pretty excited to join the club, but seems to be a bit of a waste, was hoping to learn some stuff, from all you experienced owners.... ah well, such is life...
  2. Ok, tail light is sorted, even though it was a new globe, it was a dodgy one, another globe fixed it. Now for the reverse lights, turn the key and they coming even out of reverse.... Took the new switch off, plugged it in (not connected to the gearbox) and they still come on! Could this be a faulty switch or a wiring issue? Also it has been suggested it could be an earth wire issue, what do you all think? ....talking to myself? Lol

  5. Hi all, apart from my introduction post, this is my first real "help me" post! bear with me, if I don't use the right terms for things, I'm learning! I dont usually do cars, but Im determined to save a few bucks a not rely on others for help, but dont worry, im pretty handy :) Ok, so I dont know the history of my lux, I've only had her a few days.... But I have no reverse lights, and only one of my tail lights isn't working, but both brake lights are. I have changed all the globes, checked the fuses, except for the big ones under the bonnet, not sure how you tell if they are blown. I have a new reversing switch coming tomorrow, im hoping that fixes the reverse lights. but what do you think is up with my one tail light? what do I need to check? Oh and my hand break light is stuck on, fluid levels seem ok.
  6. Hi all, new to the group, first post right here! used to have a 2WD 2001 Hilux, my faithful girl, I said goodbye to her on Sunday :( but said hello to my new and hopefully as faithful 4WD 2000 3lt Diesel hilux. she's a little rough, but I'm determined to fix bits and pieces by myself, well at least as much as I can.... Which is what brings me here, I've go no bloody idea! but I am a quick learner, and love to have a go! look forward to learning more, and learning to love my new 4x4 ;) Cheers!
