Re: WTB WD21 Terrano auto hub part

Jump starting a VX 80 series Cruiser

Hi guys.
What's the go with jump starting a VX 80 series dual battery cruiser?
I went to start mine today and the batteries were as flat as. She has been parked up for just over a week.

I used 2 spare batteries and 2 sets of leads but is there an easier way?

Well it seems using the charge fuse was not the way to go. Driving to work i noticed the instrument lights for the turbo and the cam belt were glowing evr so slightly. I unpluged the feed wire fron the charge fuse to the relay and these lights went out. I am now thinking I may have to either put a s...

Re: 80 series ignition feed

It is all sorted and wired up.
I tapped onto the charge fuse under the fuse box. What a mission it was to get to it.
No pictures yet sorry.
The fridge operates from the truck now as it should.

Re: 80 series ignition feed

Seems I do not have this fuse box between the air cleaner and battery.
The 24Valve models must be different so I will have to look further into the charge fuse idea.

Yes I had a poke around this plug too with my voltage meter but could not find what I was looking for either.

Or you could get a VSR

Yes I may have to look further into the charge fuse.
A VSR is of no use for running the caravan fridge whilst in transit I'm afraid.

Re: 80 series ignition feed

I do not have a fuse box on the drivers side that I can see, but there is one on the passenger side, but no ignition wire in there.
Here is a pic of said box.

I need the ignition wire to operate a relay or another wire that comes alive only when the engine is running.
This relay then powers a 12V feed to the caravan to keep the fridge running when in transit.
