    Found this, the letters on the bottom right (GJ) are supposed to indicate models they fit, not a good straight shot but clean.
    I got this from a thread from some guy that hasn't been here since February 2017, got my work cut out for me.

    I tested the wires that plug into the relay like what you showed in your write up. The black power wire directly next to the black/red wire had power to it when the ignition switch was turned to the start position. The second black wire had zero power to it ( you said it was suppose to have continuous 12V power), so once I saw that I knew my stuff was messed up. Its funny, I have no problem rebuilding motors, installing lifts, doing body work and paint, but.... I am one of those people that are intimidated by electrical systems. Too many wire, too many colors, too much amperage to blast yourself with if you make a mistake. After seeing your detailed write-up, I felt the need to suck it up and give it a try. Thanks for the hard work that you put into figuring the issue out and I will try to remember to to take a picture of the relay and send it to you.


    P.S. Your red 4runner is bitchin BTW. One of the cleanest looking runners I have seen in a long time.

    Just wanted to shoot you a message and thank you for starter relay wiring issue post that you put up. I drive a 1988 3.0L V6 pickup and I had the same wiring mistake that you showed (you said you wanted to know which vehicles are affected). I I ended up doing the same thing that Terry87 did, just run a wire directly from the battery w/ inline 30 amp fuse and boom, fired right up. You saved me time, money and I learned something. Thanks again.

    Guess I really meant how to fix the starter relay.Don't have a camera so I can't send pic of the relay,but it's the one on the passenger side of a 1986 Toyota truck 4x4 2.4 with the manual tranny...and I can't get under the truck to check the starter solenoid.This morning it died again in the exact same spot but I immediately pressed in the clutch as the motor died and the motor and steering were right back,very weird.The lights and radio always stay on.Haven't been able to find anyone as yet to help with the wire from the positive battery post to the 80 amp fuse in the engine bay.Just wanted info in advance if and when I find a helper..thanks.

    I just got my first Toyota. 87 4x4, I had to put a motor in it. Of course I am having ignition problems. I have read the post but am still a little confused about ST1 at the ignition switch. From what I can tell two brown wires at the switch go hot when I turn the key but neither are ST1. I have been cleaning connections, but still no luck. Also,changed the switch just because I had an extra that I know was working(still nothing). Also, no turn signals or wipers. Ran toggle switch from battery to solenoid and motor fires right up. I still need wipers and turn signals. HELP

    Hi Rad,

    Been reading many of your posts (thank you!) on the windshield trim repair threads & I have a question about your gasket choice. I think you said that the safelight guy installed it, but did you pick out the gasket or did he?

    If you picked it out, was it this one, which was discussed earlier in a thread you chimed in on:


    Or was it this one:


    I think it was the 2nd one, b/c you said you trimmed off the part for easy rinsing.

    I'm asking b/c I'm having my windshield replaced tomorrow & it's gonna need new trim & some body work.

    FYI, I have a 1991 pickup delux xtended cab.

    Thanks for your help/advice.
