It looks like it had an alarm of some sort though.
Oh wow...didn't realize it was THAT truck! I wanted to buy that thing and turn it into a trail rig. Nice to see it went to a good home.

Josh, how the HELL did you know it was that truck? You have some sort of 6th - and even 7th - sense with Rovers.

Did you do anything cosmetically to the truck? I know you're trouble-shooting, but how about some pics ? I almost jumped on that when it was for sale....

*Hopefully* you just turned it into a trail-rig as-is so you could bang her up a little more!

The only way to learn is through experience. Hopefully, someone else here will learn from your mistake.

Don't worry about it .. everyone is itching to get their hands dirty and fix this ... the only disappointing thing is we have to do it via the forum as we are working!

Damn, you guys are a bit harsh. How do you think kids learn how to use electronic gadgets so quickly? They are curious and fearless. They will press on buttons and do all kinds of things you wouldn't think of or dare to do. IMO, In the long run it seems to be an ok strategy and better than just not trying anything, and usually learn their limits before it kills then.

And Garrett, if it makes you feel any better I tried this once too

I think Jimmy is right that all it did was blow one of the maxi fuses. Pull those and test them. Be careful as sometimes when you pull the fuse the connectors come with it. They push right back in, but can be a hassle.

I forget why exactly, but the way these silver relays work end up shorting whatever that socket is wired for. And I don't recall why that socket is there and wired, but it's ok to be empty.

It's a great all around rig that drives well. The body offer no apologies, but it's got great character. Good luck finding any rust on it.

Thanks for letting me drive it G.

Nice, I like it...nothing wrong with a little character, I prefer that over rust any day.

Thanks guys for your help, I found the problem... It was the Lighting maxi fuse . Does anybody know why it would be that and not the ignition fuse? I finally got it running though after you guys helped me, of course. But thanks again and I will get some pics up asap.

Thanks again,

Garrett

Thanks for the help gents. Needless to say I was a bit impatient with him after just getting the water pump replaced on Friday...

Cheers!

Did something similar on my first d-90 back in high school. If you enjoyed debugging and fixing it consider an EE degree. At the very least go buy a $20 multimeter and electrical tape and keep them in your rig.

I had my 1st series IIa in high school. God I loved that truck! The parents sold it while I was away in Marines. Don't ever sell it! I would LOVE to have mine back. Great truck.
