In case anyone experiences the same thing...

I've had my 1023e for 5 years and it has been flawless! I finally had my first "hard down" situation. Instead of the usual clicking of the glow plugs before start, all of the lights on the dash were going crazy and the gauges pinned to the right ... nothing happening when i tried to start it.

Turns out it was a short within the battery and it fried a few solenoids. Apparently when the battery goes, it really goes.

All better now. Wish my Tacoma was as reliable as my JD.

Did you replace the battery? If not you might want to think about having one on hand. From other posts I have read you may need it soon.

They are right! Batteries dying can cause weird things to happen.
