    Ignition Key difficult to turn for starting

    Worth pointing out that my aftermarket replacement ignition barrel and door locks have a different cheaper style key to OEM. Now I need to carry an original key for fuel caps and another for the door/ignition. You can't get the fuel cap barrels swapped either..... Bugger

    Main Beam Delay

    Early 2006 HZJ79R When I first twist the knob to turn on my low beam it works fine. Occasionally when I flick the stalk forward for main beam my lights will go out for 2 or 3 seconds. After that it usually works fine Any suggestions?

    fuel gauges are all over the place

    Bugger.... I'm falling out of love with this car... fuel gauges both went to just about empty at the same time. If I short out the sub tank it reads full without the engine running. Alternator voltage with the engine at a tad above tickover after starting is 13.4v and no warning lights Any...
