What was it before you installed the diode?

Ok just checked again between 13.2 and 13.6 with the normal fuse and same with the diode,  perhaps my diode is faulty?

Have you tried turning the fuse around?

because it is a directional unit!

Hi there, would one be required for a 2013 GU Patrol?  The drop down list only goes to 2012.

I had feedback from a 2013 owner that the unit didn't work on that model, has anyone else
installed one of my units on a 2013 GU or later?

I am happy to be a guinea pig on a 2013 GU as it certainly has low voltage issues and it is either this or a DC-DC Charger

Jackaroo shouldn't need a booster as it has a standard alternator.

Order placed, thanks for the Swaggers discount. :cheers:

Hopefully the extra charge going to the batts will help fight the ERP draining them.

Hello Leigh
If I may,
Just a question about a 2013/14 era Pajero diesel.
Do they have a 'smart alternator'?
As a mate of mine has one and has been informed he will need a dcdc unit.
When I checkex your site it didn't list this vehicle, which I presume means = no smart alternator?
Thanks in advance

Hi Leigh, I have 5=1990 1HZ 80 series, does this model need the fuse upgrade, If so, My batteries are reading 12,83 cold, drove the 4wd for 20 minutes rechecked 14,04 volts, Thanks Craig

Hi Craig,

Generally if your not having trouble charging your batteries you don't need a booster, specifically regarding the your specific 80 series, that model won't have a sense fuse therefore it is not a simply a matter of swapping out the fuse. You may still be able to use a booster but again if your not presently having problems with charging the batteries or running a DCDC charger there's no need.

Cheers
