Hi i just bought almost a week ago a 1990 hilux on the way home i could use left and right turn signals and hazard,
The car had stood for 3 months and the battery was dead so when i came in my hometown i bougt a new battery and put it in. I did not realize when exactly it started but now
I can only use the left turn signal with the switch by the steering wheel, but the right one does not work exept if i put the hazard on then the right one goes on but not the left one but if i put hazard on and put the left turn signal on (by steering wheel) then they both work :shock2:
#1 I have changed all bulbs
#2 I have checked all wires
#3 I have changed the realy and fuse
And i borrowed another hazard button(switch)
The only thing i could think of is that the steering wheel column
That is the switch is faulty?
Has anybody had this problem?
And maybe solved it ? :cooldude:

Hmmmm ..... it sounds like there is a connection problem that could be in the switch itself. Maybe it just needs to be taken apart and cleaned. :think:

I agree with Andy -Remove he combination switch and check all the wires and clean the contact points properly

Hi Gents I am a Newbe

I have a 1995 double cab Hilux 2.4 Petrol we all know they are very heavy on fuel consumption and my 22R needs to be changed, I am thinking of fitting a Diesel engine in the 22R place

Can anyone give me some info on what diesel engine with ok performance and good fuel consumption that fits straight on the gearbox with minor modifications like exhaust, engine mountings, radiator

Sorry just to ad its a 5 speed gearbox

Really hope to get some info thanks Gents

The Ford 2.5lit WL diesel motor is a nice conversion for off-road power and general economy. However it's not just a 'bolt on' conversion.
