Is this normal?, is this how these injectors work?, I cannot find much online about these in...

Re: Isuzu Mu - poss other Isuzu - 1996 no start - no reverse lights

I had to do the same after getting sick of no reverse lights when the truck was cold but when warm it was fine.
I had a spare unit and made a good one out of two, I note though that occasionally the beeper stops and the reverse lights don't work, jiggle the lever and it comes right again.

Hmm, interesting developments. So I charged the battery and refitted it, run a wire from the positive battery post to the stop solenoid on the fuel pump which clicked. I left the wire on it and turned the key in the ignition......the engine fired into life. I then pulled the wire and the engine died...

Re: Bighorn owners, your thoughts please?

Good truck but as others have said it is no rocketship.
Before you start towing, invest in a bigger exhaust system (2.5 or 3 inch) egr delete, bigger turbo and a replacement air filter element wont go amiss.
