    Center Differential Lock Pin 7 Mod

    Just resurrecting an old thread here, rather than disconnecting the plug underneath and having to put a glove end over it etc. (which personally i'm not a fan of) could you not just disconnect the black with blue trace wire at the Transfer Control Relay inside the cab? Would do the same thing...

    Low Range Question

    Morning all, OK so reading those excerpts from the manual (thank you Paddler Ed) i just went for another road test. Got everything nice and warm first, then shifted into low range. Starting in 2, this time i gave it some beans. I can confirm that it shifts, but man the shift is violent! Made the...

    Low Range Question

    Yes that's the switch, however i'm not necessarily after that right now. I am just wanting to know if the car is supposed to change gears when in low range? Mine only stays in the one gear, which i believe is L. When i move the gear stick to 2 or D it doesn't change, at least in low range.

    Low Range Question

    Hi Steve, The 80 doesn't have the centre diff lock switch as standard, at least in the UK auto model. On the UK auto 80's, the CDL locks when you go from high to low range. From what i know, the plug for the CDL switch sits behind the trim where the radio is. I think i can just buy a switch and...

    Hello Land Cruiser Club

    Hi everyone, I have posted a few times but not introduced myself yet. I bought a 93 VX 80 last September, first land cruiser i've owned. She will be based here in the UK for now, but future plans will be to export her to Cape Town where i now live. When i bought her she failed MOT on rotten...

    Low Range Question

    Hi everyone, I have a 1993 VX Automatic 80. This may sound like a silly question (don’t cain me), but when I’m in low range I only can use the L gear? The vehicle won’t change to 2? I’m new to 4WD so I’m still figuring things out.

    80 Series Dash Warning Lights - Mysterious Relay...

    So after few hours of contorting myself into all sorts of uncomfortable positions tracing out the cabling, i can confirm that it is some sort of aftermarket lash up presumably for a trailer power socket. The cabling ends by the spare wheel underneath where it has been cut and is just hanging...

    80 Series Dash Warning Lights - Mysterious Relay...

    Hello everyone, So i had the old classic 80 series dash waring lights on, read up on it through the forums and went ahead and ordered and installed a new alternator thinking this would solve it - it didn't. I noticed that the grey plug on the back of the alternator was a bit miserable so i...

    Land Cruiser 80 Series Alarm Fobs

    Interesting, its a UK car. Definitely not am import. Chris if you have a spare one i'd be happy to purchase that from you because i don't have a spare right now. Any idea how to program these remotes? I don't have a manual for the security system.

    Land Cruiser 80 Series Alarm Fobs

    Hello everyone, I only have one alarm fob thingy with my 80. I've tried to order a new one with my local Toyota dealer but they cannot find a part number or a replacement, which i found a bit odd. Does anybody know a Toyota part number for these, or is there a later Toyota part number that...

    1H-DT Turbo and Injectors.

    Hello everybody, I am new to the forum, and i am a new 80 series owner. I purchased a 1H-DT VX model, she needs a bit of TLC bless her but i'm determined to resurrect her. She's done 209,000 miles so she's no spring chicken. She's not in bad nick considering her age, however she failed MOT test...
