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

My alternator voltage booster (fuse) came in from HKB Electronics yesterday.

Size:  6.9 KB

When I installed it the battery voltage was 11.88, FJ had been sitting and the ODBII module was plugged in. I've since decided to remove the adapter and unplug the dash cam before letting her sit.

Installed the fuse (50/50 chance is no chance) and it was backwards. Installed again and started. Voltage went up to 14.57. Before installing the fuse was 13.95. Both taken at fast idle at startup. Never seen it over 14.0 that I can recall.

On Torque Pro using the voltage from the 'control module' I get approx. 2.5 volts lower than the reading at the battery.

Need a nice ride now to see if the battery gets fully charged..

Used my trusty Tek 916.

I haven't heard of Tek in a long time. My father worked there for many years when we were living in Battle Ground.

The Tek is a good DMM but no one supports it anymore. I had a good Fluke but gave it to my son.

All my scopes have been Tek. I still have a TDS 320. Don't use it much anymore.

Is there an instructional to take the cowl off without breaking the clips -here on the forum?

I have a snorkel and also was wondering if there was room enough for a windshield replacement with the snorkel in place with side panel removed/ unscrewed ??

Mike
I have a Safari Snorkel and have had the windshield replaced. I removed the wipers and all surrounding panels except for the roof panel. the bracket that attaches the snorkel to the passenger (Left hand Drive) side A pillar cover is easy to unbolt and there is room to remove the cover. The windshield can be replaced without removing the snorkel itself. Window guy did the new roof cover which needs to be glued, I replaced the rest using new clips.

Installed factory tow hitch. Well after a cluster yuk. I got it on but had a curt hitch on at the time that was seriously over torked. After fighting that for a bit i did what any 55 year old back yard mechanic would do. I cut off the tubing part and left the brakets for now. Put some BG penetrating oil and will try again in a couple days.

Meanwhile i installed the new hitch torked the bolts to spec and tossed the bumper cover back on. Then installed the new factory tow wiring.
I intend to put a trailer break in next.
I still managed to get all that done in about a hour and a half so felt good about it. Being that I'm disabled (right ankle replaced 2x) i have a hard time getting up and down anymore. But i refuse to pay something else for something i know i can do myself.

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

Evaporator core replaced by local shop... that was spendy. As seen in other threads on the forum, entire dash pulled out, etc. Had them do the heater core while they were in there.

They seem to have done a good job, no new rattles, squeaks or other issues with the dash, etc that I can see after install and nice and cool for now (will continue to watch it).

Got the Borla exhaust and the RCI front skid on. Making progress!
