Ignition by-pass 1996 Toyota 4 runner - RESOLVED
My 1996 Toyota 4 runner SR-5 (V6) automatic tranny, has an intermittent starting problem. I could spend a fortune to a auto electrician or I could do an ignition by-pass.
I have looked this up on google and I can many, many different answers.
The one which seems the simplest is to run a wire (4 gauge) from the positive stud of the starter solenoid to the positive stud of the battery with a MOMENTARY push button switch in between.
However, I’m not experienced with this kind of thing and I’m worried about further damaging the SUV.
Any advice gratefully appreciated . Particularly as to what MOMENTARY push button switch to buy. The starting system seems to draw 175 amps , so I’ll need a switch that can handle this large amperage
Any advice gratefully appreciated.
Hello all, I discovered the problem, quite by accident. The 4 runner which I just bought had the alarm system set up to shut off the ignition system. I had been accidentally, pushing the wrong button on the alarm fob. PROBLEM SOLVED ! Big relief.
