One does not fuse a winch as the power draw is way to high.

Your fuse must always be as close as possible to the battery. So I would check the compressor fuse.

To be honest I would also give the compressor its own/separate wires direct from the main battery.

But what do I know, send you pic to Ant and confirm before you start with the wiring.

You can run 16mm cable from front and use it to do both run compressor and charger ...i suggest a small busbar system some place in drawer system and a 80a fuse from second battery positive both can feed into fault . Compressor needs 50a fuse stick to 16mm min for that

Some small updates ~

Done a full service,

Oil - Delo 400 15w-40
GUD Oil Filter Z226
Nissan OEM Air Filter
Plugs NGK Platinum PLFR6A-11
Replaced Fuel pump with and aftermarket Electro Part 3.8Bar pump(Very Cheap) Would like to change to a Walbro hi flow at a later stage
GUD E15 Fuel Filter

After the service I picked up a missfire which I thought couldve been a vacuum leak as I had one previously. After checking all the pipes and finding nothing I started researching what else could cause the missfire and with lots of goooogling :typing: and advice from fellow Patrol owners QQQ I put it down to a faulty coil pack. When changing the plugs I had noticed that No.1 Cylinder coil pack looked different to the others, I found that it was the coil pack from the VQ35de (350z V6) and that the spark plug in that cylinder was also the incorrect spec :doh: So I decided because the vehicle has high millage and I intend on overlanding that I will replace all coil packs at once. This obviously is an expensive exercise :signhere: so I done a little further digging and found that the TB48 shares the same coil pack as the VK45de found in some of the Infinity vehicles. I managed to find a full set of 8 new aftermarket units for about a quarter of the price of 6 new OEM from the USofA. I know they wont last as long as OEM but we can only tell how long by testing. At that price I can change them 4 times if need and I also have 2 spare. Lets see how they go :shifty:
After changing them I set the timing at +10deg and then done an Idle Air relearn. It is now driving silky smooth with nice power :rock:

While changing the fuel pump I came across a very very dirty fuel pump cover. I recommend checking out yours if youve done some muddy offroading before.

With some degreaser and a hose pipe I gave it a good scrub.

And then lastly I sold off the OEM rims and picked up a set of Dynamic Steel fake beadlocks. When I eventually get round to running 35 muds ill change them to a proper set. For now I think it looks really cool :cool:

Next up on this list of items:

Brake disks and pads
Front and rear diff service
Transfer case service
Bilstein Shocks and coils 3"lift
Tentco Awning
Finish up storage system
Electrical wall

Till the next update :cya:
Hi JTEC,

Can you please help me with the code of the Coilpacks. Bought a patrol with a VK45DE engine and it started with a misfire right after i disconnected the battery to put it on charge. Might have to start looking at the coilpacks as that was my first port of call as well.
