Just wanted to say hi, I just picked up a 93 single cab
157k miles
original owner
timing chain at 100k
clutch within 20k miles
Run great drives straight
22RE/5speed
appears 100% stock

Minor rust stains ( how to remove)
Front wheels/tires dont match rears

$3400

Notice the picture of the "mouse chewed" wires, the horn does not work and it appears the other goes to the brake master cylinder.

Also leaks a small amount of oil and may have a exhaust leak








Anyhow I am open for advice and suggestions, really want to fix the wiring.

Congrats on your new Yota and welcome to the Nation. Looks like the rust near your tail lights can be ground out but it's a little tougher to tell about the doors. The wires just need to be reconnected and wrapped, easy peasy.

I am hoping that's the case just need to be sure to connect the wires back to the proper locations.

The rust is all just surface nothing through, almost like rust water stains from the bottom of the door drains.

ok so doing research these broken wires have noting to do with the horn (as the old owner told me)

1 pair is for the stock stereo (long gone) so I removed it :)
The other appears to be the low brake fluid warning will fix these


Oh to the horn, pushed the horn heard click no beep, so i was able to wiggle the connector off the horn and put my meter on it, low and behold 12v on the meter when i press the horn (lucky)

Now I cant figure out how to get this grille out!

Might be a horn relay issue...if the relay is sufficiently burned to not pass enough current to operate the horn, you might still see 12.5v at the horn, yet it won't honk. I would recommend finding another relay at a Pic N Pull junkyard and swapping them out to see if that helps.
Cheers,

cleaned the connector on the horn and the plug - no change

removed the relay "looks" ok but I do not know. I will pick up a new one

I measured 44 ohms across 2 of the poles.


**** update*****

OK so when the horn is plugged in (circuit LOADED) I am only seeing .5 volts on the meter.

Horn was mounted to body and had extra ground wire added too

Unplug the horn and its 12.5 volts again

Sounds like a bad ground?

Ok you master techs and smarter than me guys help me out here.

This horn is kicking my dumb ass.

1. Horn bench tests fine
2. Added extra ground to horn
3. 12.5 V at horn when button on steering wheel is pushed
4. with horn connected and button pushed only .5 V when pushed
5. Truck had a remote start that did not work I removed it no change everything works same as before
6. Can clearly hear the relay click when pushing horn button


Could it be the relay? I pulled it out and "looked" at it it appears fine but not sure how to test it. My guess is a bad ground but the horn circuit is super simple.


I also pulled the steering wheel to have a look it is dirty as balls in there so I will clean that but from what I can tell it seems to work fine.

Grover...Good news. Relays are cheap and easier to deal with than some wiring problem buried in the harness somewhere, It would be interesting to take the old relay apart and try to determine the failure mode.
Give my regards to Scut Farkas...

Well, The single cab 93 moved on down the road ( at a decent profit).

So I bought this.




1985 extended cab 22re and a straight axle, thought to be the holy grail of these trucks.
5:29 gears
longfield outer front axles
Bilstein shocks all around (remote reservoir)
4" trailgear front springs
63" chevy rears
new warren hubs (not installed)
Air lockers front and back
High crossover steering
rock sliders
diff guards front and rear
rear disk brakes
20k on rebuilt motor and trans (header with off road exhaust)
Toyo 35"s on some ugly wheels actually 315/75/16
8k winch

bought it last night, had been watching it on CL for weeks and weeks. wanted 7500 took 6300

Interior is dirty and worn so I will work on cleaning that up. However this thing is a monster

I have pulled the interior to try and clean it, removed the faily and poorly down tint and sticker.

Currently looks like this.


I like the custom rock sliders



Fixing up the small things as this was used mostly as a hunting truck
And the horn is inop!

Good work man, nice truck. All you need now are dual cases.
