I had a couple of issues with the reversing camera, including a blown fuse. So I took the opportunity to relocate the ecu a bit higher. I did it mainly to make room because with the Haltech, there is a lot more wiring and there isn’t much room for it. Relocation gives a lot more room. And even though the ecu is waterproof, I look at it as another layer of protection .

This morning I did another test drive to check both the rear diff locker and the new dash. This time round, the diff locked in substantially quicker. It may well have locked straight away, but in any case I turned full lock the rear was already binding. So that was pleasing. I then set the shift lights on the dash. There are 4 set points. 2 for green, 1 each for yellow and red. Finally I had to calibrate the speedo, which was a bit fiddly. For some reason, the factory tacho no longer works. Might need to speak to Haltech.

I think an update is required on the locker! Did you work out why it failed?

No, only did the test yesterday. We need to determine whether it’s an electrical issue or a mechanical one.

On Friday we did a test run down in the southern highlands. Unfortunately it didn’t go well. The diff would disengage for reasons unknown at this stage. Since returning home, I have I have investigated the wiring inside the cabin and found nothing wrong so far. I bought another relay in case the relay was faulty. That just leaves the fuse and fuse holders as possible causes inside the cabin. I run 2 fuses for the main power supply. The first is an older one which I am re-using. It has only been used inside the cabin and never gave problems. It is located jus5 near the second battery + terminal. The second fuse is the one that came as part of the wiring kit with the diff.

Next to check is the underbody wiring. If that checks out then the next step is to remove the diff and have a look inside.

Hey Rally!

Yes, there is more news. As they say, good news and bad news. The good news is we believe we have found why the rear diff locker wasn’t working and believe this has been fixed. The bad news is my centre diff controller is faulty and was sent back this morning to the manufacturer in Canada. Seems like the centre diff caught some off the rear diff.....

Well if it is capable of catching something, I reckon it's just as likely to be offended by being put in second place:
