Hey guys, I was driving back home when my 4runners engine stalled on me and I couldnt restart, thankfully I was in my drive way already. Anyway before it died it gradually got weaker (power loss) and there was this ratteling sound from the front of the engine around the bonnet area. The funny thing was that the left battery suddenly went flat right at that spot, (very weak cranking) this truck needs two strong batteries to kick the engine, well the left one was totally flat. The next morning the engine didnt crank at all.
Before handing me any advice, My AC fan has been running without a relay for about 2 months now (cant find a spare in my country). The AC guy connected a wire straight from the fusebox right to the AC compressor switch, this meant that even when the engine was off, the AC fan would still be running, so everytime I got back home I had to turn disconnect the wire to stop the fan from spinning. I only connected it when I needed AC.
Do you think my AC fan relay problem has something to do with the engine stalling?
Any Advice would be a Godsend. Thanks Guys!
