No sorry neither of those.
It was how to take a plug off the transfer case so that you could use low range without locking up the centre diff.
Eg reversing a van into a tight park on tar seal. Hard to do in standard form

Thanks

It's on the Lcool site in the 100 series section - called the Pin 7 Mod, far as I recall - did mine - works a treat.

This one ....?

But its 80 series, even though it was in the 100 series section.
The only mention I recall awhile back here was relating to the Lcool site.

Yep Graham, i have removed the right most connector on the rear of the transfer case, thus removing the auto intro of the CDL in low range. i is now fully manual controlled in low and high- very handy. just tape up the plug and tie it up.

Yeah that's all I did too works a treat.
I have heard that this may affect the ABS is this true? My old 105 didn't have ABS but my current one does and I haven't unplugged it to check.
Maybe when I pull out the transfer case and put in a new one this week I'll try it and see if it affects the ABS.

Graham
It’s on the Lcool site in the 100s Tech section. The method there is the plug at 1 o’clock. There was a post somewhere, can’t remember where, that was called the No 7 pin mod. (in behind the LH kick panel). I did mine this way.

The problem with the gearbox plug method apparently, is that the plug and socket on the gearbox are O ring sealed together against water ingress, as the plug fixed to the gearbox is not sealed on its own, water gets into the gearbox if you leave them separated.

Look in behind the front LH kick panel and up high is a small black box with an oblong plug in the bottom. Pull the plug out, and I think is was pin 7 ??? Check the colour code as this is the wire that goes down to the gearbox plug (black and red I think), work backwards from the gearbox plug to be sure. Pull this pin out of the oblong plug and tape it up and cable tie it to the harness as it’s live.

No more auto low range.

Oops, meant no more auto centre diff lock up in low range. Manual dash switch still works as normal.

Thanks guys

It does seem though that the 100 series plug is in the back of the glovebox which will mean a bit of extra work as I already have a Safari chip in there already so place is a bit packed.
Will try to get around to it when we spend a bit more time in one place.
At present at Nowra heading to Batemans Bay then Canberra and the Snowy then a week in Melbourne over Easter.




Cheers

Hi Graham,

I too have simply unplugged and taped the plug from the back of the transfer case. Only takes a couple of minutes. Personally, I can't see too much water entering through the electrical pins on the switch fitting. I certainly have not had any water in my transfer case. If you are worried about it, then put a big dob of silicon over it to seal it up.

Cheers
Gerry

The only reason it is covered up is to keep the mud out of it...the plig is right above the rear tailshaft, drop by my place and i will do it for you.

Things to consider...if you have factory difflocks, you need that switch to lock em, so the pin 7 mod is the way to go about it...and if you have an auto, this switch tells the computer that controls the auto when it is in low range and the auto shift points change...no biggy, with it unplugged, for instance, you can be in 4th locked converter in low range...
Lastly, be careful with the right foot as the front diff can take alot of strain if a rear wheel slips

Dozer, I have a 100s V8 petrol auto, so that cdl switch on the dash is to activate it in high range?, if plug on transfer case is removed does it interfere with normal drive operation.

Its a 04 5speed.


Cheers Axle.

axle, i cant see any issues, it is only a switch to tell the computer what to do, no input and it thinks it is in high range, and first gear is held till x revs, where as in low with plug off, first will move to 2nd and 3rd fairly quickly....i will check lcool tech pages and find out incase i am wrong with the 5 speed...
