I've been working on replacing/repairing everything that was stolen and damaged in the process, but I've run into a few issues that I'm hoping someone can shed some light on:
1. OBD port has no power (Replaced #15 fuse, all other fuses fine)
2. High Beam Indicator stays on with low beams, turns off with high beams (reversed), and stays on when truck is off
3. Left low beam doesn't work, checked bulb and fuses but still not luck
Has anyone had any similar issues, or knows whats going on?
Since it's kms- I assume Canadian specs.
2.)Take a look at the DTRL module on the driver side fender, below the brake master cylinder. (This module gives you daytime running lights, and controls the high beam indicator on Canadia spec trucks)
3.) Take a look at the ground splice that sits rather close to the driver side headlight, a little below the light on the fender. There are a lot of cables going there and they get ground through the fender sheetmetal, but the post rusts out frequently.
1.) No power or no ground on the connector? How about the data connections? Many scanners offer the option to power them through the cig lighter or sport a battery. It would be interesting to know if it's just the 12V+, ground or everything missing.
And- get a factory service manual! The best return on investment you can imagine!
(Well, I tried to leverage this by buying thousands of them for my truck... but only the first one saved me thousands of $$$, the other ones seem to be defective... I would have wanted to retire on them
