    Re: help please

    The vacuum lines go to your power steering air valve. This is a device on your power steering pump. It's sole purpose in life is to slightly increase your idle speed when you crank the wheels hard (helps prevent stalls due to the load of the power steering when cranking steering hard while at idle speeds). The little black box (red arrow) is the connection point for the big + wire from the alternator. Tim

    Re: unknown button for me, help...

    I believe that button is to disable the passenger side lock/window controls (I could be wrong). That particular button in my van is missing as well, but the PO had soldered a bridge between that circuit so that the passenger side works.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Re: unknown button for me, help...

    I looked into it and checked the owners manual.

    1986 Toyota Van Owners Manual (I don't imagine it would be too different from an '89 manual.)
    Page 51

    "When the "P/W LOCK" switch is pushed in or the "WINDOW" switch is in the "LOCK" position, none of the windows, except the driver's window, can be raised or lowered."


    You can view the manual here. Hope that helps.

    Mystery connector

    Does anybody know what the green 2-wire connector goes to? It's in the bundle of 3 harnesses: TPS harness, O2 sensor harness + this Green connector. This bundle of 3 are all about the same length. I do not see anything that this green connector can connect to.
    The van in question is an '88 LE, auto 4wd.

    Thanks

    Re: Mystery connector

    88 - 89 vans that were originally sold in California had stricter emission requirements than vans sold in the other 49 states. Vans sold in CA had different ECUs, a slightly different engine wire harness, and an EGR temp sensor. It looks like your van has the CA harness and quite possibly the CA ECU. That wire with the green end goes to the EGR temp sensor which is probably missing from your engine.

    You could try to find that sensor or you could find a non-CA ECU (assuming yours is a CA one) and forget about it. The other option would be to just let it hang, but your "check engine light" would most likely illuminate and your ECU would display a code #71 while in the diagnostic mode. Tim

    Blue plug under passenger side dash?

    Hi all,

    I'm Josh, I have an '86 2wd TV that was given to me after I brought it back to life. It's running pretty doggone well right now with the exception of some cold start issues that I'm going to troubleshoot this weekend.

    Unrelated to that -I think- is this thing that I found under the passenger side front dash today (see attachment). It's a blue connector, at least three fairly large-gauge blue wires on one side, several other wires of varying gauge and color, too. Before I start scouring the service manual, anyone have any idea to what this is supposed to connect? Some accessory that I don't have? As far as I can tell, everything in the van works okay.

    Thanks in advance!

    Josh

    Re: Blue plug under passenger side dash?

    I'm pretty sure that's your Passenger side door harness. The wires it holds are for power windows, power locks, and the little red courtesy light in the door panel (none of which would work with that thing unplugged). Another possibility is the doors were replaced with non-powered ones and the harness is left over??? Tim

    Re: Blue plug under passenger side dash?

    Well- the van has manual windows and no power locks, but I'm fairly certain that the doors haven't been swapped. I don't know, anything's possible, but the interior trim panels are the same, the locks are the same, everything looks pretty original.

    I'll do a little investigating tomorrow and see what can be seen. I'll write down the wire colors and look at the FSM to see what can be deduced.

    Thanks!

    Josh

    Tim is correct, it is the plug for all the powered goodies in the door.
