    Put 12 volts to the injection pump and cross the 2 heavy wires at the starter relay under the dash at the radio. Make sure to glow the glow plugs right before you attempt to crank it over. I started them on the floor that way. Good Luck. Report back.

    You have a $150.00 brush guard, $50.00 worth of antenna mounts, $300.00 worth of bumpers in the back and $300.00 worth of bumpers on the truck. And that's just for starters.

    Alrighty. So I got the glow plugs hot. Put 12v to the IP, and jumped the wires on the relay. Started turning over but no bang. Also I noticed the grounding wire was hot as ****!! Almost looked a little melted. Also originally when I hooked the batteries up I noticed a gen 1 light on the dash. Didn’t pay any mind to it. I figured there was a bad ground somewhere. I’m wondering if this truck had wiring issues before. Because those battery cables were hot. Had to make sure I had the batteries in the right spot. Which I did.

    So I’m gonna go ahead and disassemble the steering wheel column and replace the ignition so I can truly turn over the truck. Trying to jump it isn’t working out for me.

    Hot ground can come from low amperage in the batteries. have the batteries load tested and make double sure they are fully charged and able to do the job. Good Luck.

    Got around to pulling the Keyed actuator out of steering column. I can tell somebody has been in this column before because of a few tool marks, broken pieces of plastic and a missing lock ring. Anyways, I should be able to grab the piece of metal behind the actuator and move it with pliers. We will see.

    As I was replacing these wires I noticed the link between the 24v bus and the ground looked pretty cooked? Can I take this off? Iím exactly sure what it does? I was looking at the TM and it listed it as a ďsuppressorĒ. Also there is a copper lugged green and black wire on top of it and they are spliced into red wires and then go into the harness on the engine. Here are some pictures. Its weird they have a power and a ground hooked up.

    Well Iím out of ideas. I got the wires right, fixed some grounds, put brand new batteries in it, and then turned it over for about 20 seconds. Then, a mini explosion and sparks everywhere! I practically melted down the entire negative post on my rear battery.. and itís brand new. This $500 ****box is going to cost me a lot of money. I can already feel it haha
