But what if the starter motor has already started acting up? and power
cannot be cut via a cab-mounted battery isolator? or you find that you can't
even go near the bonnet because its glowing red hot in places...?
Mine happened with no warning whatsoever - there wasn't even a whirring
noise whilst driving until I heard it when I tried to turn the ignition
off - it continued for a long time before it stopped - and I couldn't get
into the engine area because parts of it were already burning red hot (so it
melted lots of metal terminals nearby)and shorted every circuit
imaginable...

The best solution is to fit a battery isolation switch (or switches) inside
the cab so if there is any problem like this, or in a crash then all
electrical power can be cut off immediately.

Hello the guys I am confused about all this posts. But if I read write then
a originale Toyota starter Chas bought he only some month ago for ?258, then
it stucks on in the ON mode turning on the moteur again and again even
though she is already firing! Then the starter catch on fire almost. But
then another post he say that starter is from Milners- what is Milners, a
Toyota concessionaire?
These whole ideas is new to me even but I have some friends with hdg80 and
my friend with his own garage know very many things about them to. Nobody
hear of this starter things before I read this.
Please some body with good english like you guys could make a simple rapport
on what probleme is and what driver should do so fast so no fire comes.
Assurance companies here in France are like rodents(?) which mean they crawl
like worms to finding all little excuse to not pay back a accident even like
moteur fires. I rather not have fire in first space. With hdj80 have 2
batteries we must unconnect the two to save from fire? So many questions.

That's precisely why a battery isolater switched from inside the cab is
neded. It will cut all power unless the battery cable has melted onto the
starter terminals or something!
