I was just helping a mate fit a dual battery set up to a D4D prado when we touched the positive battery terminal on the fuel filter - earthed.

The motor will now turn over but not start... Is there a reset or fuse to replace. I have check all the fuses I can find with out luck.

Does anyone have experience with this sort of thing?

Might be a immobiliser/alarm type problem

Hi Dremus,
Sounds like an imobiliser problem or most likely a blown fuse, the toyotas are putting fuses in all sort of strange locations (as are all car makers come to that).
Is that the model that has a big plastic container near the battery terminal?
Check for a ECM fuse or a fuse that has a picture of a engine.
Good hunting.

Thanks for the input guys.. we found it!

Someone (not me) shorted the spanner out on the fuel filter and put a pin hole in it about 10mm from the top of the filter.

for some reason we couldn't see any diesel but after priming the pump a ni9ce stream of diesel shot out. The engine was sucking air..... put your finger over it and she started..

how embarrassing.. could have been worse, could have been petrol!!!!
