Been distracted looking at my volt meter lol. Thanks @mikey for the tutorial/install DIY. Starts at 11.6-.9v at cold and maybe signs my battery is aging. I have a remanfactured yota alternator so it's newer. Starting 14.3v after it got warm, settled at 13.7. So I installed the DIY voltage booster and now it's healthy for my new battery going in tomorrow.

3/11/19 Update my post: my battery seems to be fully charged as of late. I wonder if my starter is seeing wear. I should probably look into it further. Old battery tested 12.6 off the terminals. New battery was about 12.4. Possibly because it had been sitting on the shelf. When I do my fuse block, most likely will wire the voltmeter closer to the battery for a true reading.

Re: What did you do TO your FJ Cruiser TODAY?

Entered the PIDs for the Trans Temps into Torque. While I was sitting idling the trans temps stayed pretty matched up. Driving in local traffic the torque converter started to pull away from the pan temp. Up hill to top of Mt Scott the TC got about 15 degrees ahead and by time I got home they were equal again.

Checked the two Voltages. The adapter was within 0.1v when checked with my DMM at the battery. The ECU was about 0.5v low


TTP is the pan temp and TCT is the torque converter.

Time to start sorting through the PIDs to see what else is lurking in there

1. Got an alignment done.
2. Finished putting together my Expedition One Ultra Mule roof rack.
3. Mounted Aurora 40" light bar on rack.
4. Made custom brackets for the backup camera that will be bolted to the rack.

Looks like you'll need to update your post signature.

Since it was sunny out today I figured I would do some spring cleaning .
I drained the cooling system and flushed . Then I swapped out the thermostat and hoses just for fun . I changed the serpentine belt ( much quieter now ) and Adjusted my Coilovers . Then got underneath and started cleaning her up .

3/11/19 Update my previous battery post: I don't want to misinform anyone on how to properly measure your battery. Make sure to measure at the terminals/closest to it for a true reading without the vehicle on (and terminals disconnected if possible). My battery seems to be fully charged as of late. I wonder if my starter is seeing wear. I should probably look into it further. Old battery tested 12.6 off the terminals. New battery was about 12.4. Possibly because it had been sitting on the shelf. When I do my fuse block, most likely will wire the voltmeter closer to the battery for a true reading. Old battery still looks good, may have a load test performed on it at the store.
