    Read the fine print on returning that CEM. I'd be concerned that electronic parts become non-returnable if they've been installed.

    Good luck. Electrical gremlins like this are the toughest to...

    Sounds like it could be a CEM (Central Electronics Module) problem.

    I guess I never posted a full thread on the light bar. Here are some more pics. It's completely made of scrap metal. The main body tube was scavenged from a mobile TV stand that I no longer...

    I was just noticing the dearth of people pics, so here are a few.

    And, I noticed I don't have any pics with me in it from this Death Valley trip, so I added a couple at the end from other outings....

    This was the big one I've been prepping for for 4 years. The XC performed flawlessly, which I'm obviously happy about.

    So far, the only issue I've had was on our last outing to Death Valley Natl....
  6. What I've done to my XC70 for off-road prep

    My goal with the XC70 was to build a mild overlanding vehicle for desert or mountain forest off road trips and winter ski trips. I'm done with the major work I've wanted to do. I thought I'd post a...

    My daughters and I went overlanding through Death Valley National Park for spring break. 3 nights. 230 miles off road with some pavement miles between off road sections. We took a general south to...

    I put the piston of the jack on the edge of the bracket. There was just enough purchase to do the job. I think on the other side, I may have used one of the bolt heads. Yeah, a little sketchy like...

    Put in the new filter, add 5 gal of gas, and try starting it. Stop messing around. :)

    Well, I couldn't buy a 4Runner for $1500 5 years ago. Doubtful you could today. I didn't have plans for any of this when I bought the XC70. I wanted AWD for ski trips with better than the 14 mpg...

    And, I think I've had it with this forum. Been a good run. Lot's of good information here especially all the pdf files uploaded to the resources section, but I can't live with the forum issues. I...

    I'd dig into the seat first before buying anything. You may find there's just one or 2 breaks in the element. Easily fixed with a soldering iron and a couple inches of wire. If the element was...

    Does it start with external fuel, i.e. starter fluid delivered into the intake? If so, then it's a fuel problem, despite the fact that you have fuel pressure. Could be clogged fuel injectors as...

    Here is one company. I've used them. No complaints. They identified a leaky injector among the set I sent them for service, and I replaced it with a new one.

    I'd be worried the car was dumped because of a bad transmission. You won't know until you get it running. Good luck. Keep us informed.

    That would indicate no spark. The fuel isn't getting burned. Swapping the injectors is a good test, though. I see you already put in a new coil. I'd check for spark. Pull the coil off the plug. ...

    I watched a test on youtube a couple days ago that may apply here. Yes, I watched youtube, and now I'm an expert. LOL. But seriously, this may be where this test is relevant. You've already...

    If the car doesn't start, ignore the misfire codes on 2 cylinders. It will start and run with 2 dead cylinders. Those misfires are not preventing the car from starting. Back to basics as Astro14...

    Yeah, I was thinking it would be nice not to lose my ground clearance when laden. I've got Bad Swede springs in the rear for 2 inches of lift, and I added an additional 2 inches by fabricating...

    Your story isn't clear. Did it gradually start to run poorly, and then one day, it finally said no more and stalled and then has never started again?

    Or did it suddenly stall out with no warning...
