    Hi all I have just joined up and need urgent help. I have a 1996 Mitsubishi Triton MJ ute, Last Tues I had done a run to Goulburn from Orange then to Young and then back to Orange via Cowra. I filled up at young (with Diesel) and had trouble with the motor spitting and spluttering, electrics flashing on and off and the finally conking out about 10km out of Orange. I rang the NRMA who eventualy came out, I told him it might be electrical or dirty fuel as it only happened after I filled up at Young, I also had a small leak in the drainage valve at the bottom of the fuel filter which I said could be sucking in air, he tightened it up with a pair of pliers and that was it , rang a tow truck and dropped me home. It pays to belong?
    I looked at it today and had no power what so ever, I put in a fully charged battery flicked the ignition switch on and nothing, dead as a door nail, the fuses are all ok including the 3 fuseable links. I get power to these points ie starter motor, fuseable links, is there anything else I missed? Any help would be appreciated as I would like to get it going as I have a funeral to go to in Sydney on Monday.
    Cheers BB

    Found the problem,
    It turned out whoever put the Turbo timer in was a bit dodgy, the original plug was cracked or melted and the joiner was put in between the two original plugs to connect the turbo timer a couple of bare wires were showing on that so both pieces would have been arcing causing the turbo timer to cut in and out.
    tankbloke and Albynsw like this.
