I have a 2007 vdj76. Unfortunately someone broke in so need to replace passenger door lock.
Only have 1 key. It seems cheaper to replace all locks including ignition than to get a passenger lock rekeyed and hVing another main key cut.
I have been advised my key has a transponding chip.
I didn't think the 70series before 2010 had the transponding chip?

If anyone in the know can confirm or correct me.
Thanks

I have a 2012 VDJ troop carrier that has no active codes on scanner , it cranks but won’t start . On crank the fuel rail pressure is only 14000 Kpa , google tells me it should be 300000 kpa , yes it has fuel to injector pump . The vehicle drove into my shed 3 months ago and I went to drive it yesterday and zero , battery new yesterday also , fuses good , I have a feeling this is a simple thing gone wrong any ideas

2011 78 v8 that cranks slowly but is ok with jump start , 2 new batteries I have tried , cleaned one earth/ground cable but can’t find the engine ground, any ideas ? Thx in advance

Question
when you jump started it and it cranked over well did you put the jumper cables with both on the battery terminals or one on the battery and one one the engine to earth?
If you used the engine as an earth and it cranked well then you definitely have a loose earth, assuming the battery is in good condition.
If you used both terminals (battery to battery) and it cranked well your battery/ batteries are suspicious.

I did earth to engine , I looked at a spare starter motor and loom and there is 3 grounds to engine from the loom !!!

Vdj78r team out of fuel now it starts but wont run..?

Shooter
Shooter  

If it starts and runs for a few seconds or even drives for perhaps 30 seconds it’s a fuel starvation problem. You need to put plenty of fuel in the tank. IE. at least 20L+.
There is too much air in the lines.

There is a lot of info online for b279a.
Clearly in the “electrical fault of some sort” category.

Would you recommend a decoder on a 79 series
If your going on a lap of Oz
To get you out of trouble with limp mode issues

Shooter

I haven’t even heard of limp mode on a 79 series and I’m not convinced it exists.
Certainly neither me nor any one I know has has limp mode appear on that vehicle.

D.B

Limp mode exists, off key on key will clear an intermittent fault but engine light will stay on till cleared

Hi, the gear changes in my 2018 79 series can be a bit clunky sometimes, like the syncro is not working properly but is perfect other times - depends on revs when changing gears.

Is this normal?

Shooter
Shooter  

Yes I think it’s normal. I have a 2013 dual cab same gearbox and have experienced the situation u describe. It’s a light truck gearbox not a sport car gearbox. The only times I hear a crunch r if I change too quickly or use too many revs.

Hi guys I have a 2008 79 series single cab turbo v8. My car sometimes won't start it will crank not fire up or fire up then stall within seconds. If i disconnect the battery and re connect most the time does the trick but could sometimes take hours before it fires up and runs. Sometimes when I turn the car off and key is still in the ignition in the off position the 2 efi relays start clicking and sometimes the 2 glow plug relays aswell.. but will stop when I turn the key to on.. even the key out I've also noticed when I put my foot on the brake with the ignition in off the relays start ticking away aswell.. its really annoying I've swapped relays checked battery terminals checked fuses checked ignition switch checked immobiliser sprayed contact cleaner on everything and problem is still there please any help will be much appreciated

Hi ibby. I wish I could help but have no experience with this type of problem. My mates 09 79 series has been to 4 mechanics including 2 very reputable diesel mechanics, for a problem along similar ish" lines as yours but they cant diagnose. It can be so frustrating I understand! Especially when you/we have another mate whom has a old td42 gq that hasn't missed a beat' not one problem in 15 years that he brought for $1500 in bermagui, and we said he was mad to drove 6 hours to get it. He proved us wrong. grrr, goodluck with it mate.

I have a 2014 VDJ78 and I wish to scan the computer codes. I have an ELM327 scanner and use Car Scanner or Auto Doctor apps on my ipad but neither of these apps will find my ECU. Can anyone suggest why I have this problem?

I have asked before but have not received an answer about poor brakes on 2015 79 series vdj79 . I find braking is far better when I am towing a 3 tonne van with electric brakes, than without the van. I think the ute would have trouble passing a transport test.
