    My hyjet is dead and I think I probably grounded the battery when i was working on the alternator and fried the fusible link. There is a 30 amp fuse under the drivers seat that is good, but does anyone know if that is the main fuse or is there another one hidden somewhere?

    I think i might sell my truck just so i never have to change that again...
    Ok maybe not, but seriously daihatsu could you have picked a worse spot for it? After much searching I finally found it in front of the rad on the drivers side. To get at it you have to remove the rad overflow tank which is a pain if you have a/c.
    Anyway, judging by the lack of response i figured most people haven't seen it so i thought i'd do a follow up.

    My Hijet was one that arrived dead (only the dump bed works) and I have been looking for the main fuse link. One of my problems is that I have no idea what a Daihatsu fuse link looks like.

  7. Daihatsu Main Fuse Location & Picture

    The main fuse is 50A and red in color. For 4WD vehicles, lift up the drivers seat. You will see the 4WD control valves bolted under the front lip frame in front of the radiator. Remove the two size 10 bolts and move the unit twards the passenger side. The main fuse has a clip holding it to the front underpanel. Dont try to remove the fuse as is! Remove the clip and pull the unit back towards you. Wiggly the little guy out (Looks like a tooth). See the picture I ahve attached. 50A for non-AC and 60A for A/C. Warning, do not put in a lower rated fuse as it will blow quicky!

    Found my fuse ... It was located under the passenger seat of the JDA version (US).. Which would have been the the drivers seat for regular overseas verstions..

    Now if I knew where you can buy one of these fuses at ...

    pretty common fuse.in the underhood fuse box on a ton of cars.....take it to a wrecking yard and grab a bunch of old ones to have on hand in case they ever blow again..generally at wrecking yards there are 3 things(in my opinion anyway) that I always grab a pocketful of...fuses,small light bulbs and interior trim screws...you never have the proper size of any of those 3 around unless you start collecting them:p

    Found the 50 amp main fuse at NAPA ... NAPA Part Number 782-2030

    Here is a picture of it in it's wrapper ..

    Just a slight difference between the original and the new .. The fuse fit just like the original .. Don't be affraid to buy one when needed ..

    Did you ever get a response? I have the same problem with my '97 and none of the usual suspects seem to work on mine. I even bought the English translations of the owners manual and electrical diagram to no avail; including the Daihatsu Help line. Any ideas?

    To be honest with you I really don't know ...

    Mine Diahatsu is a LEFT hand drive (US VERSION) verses a RIGHT (JAP VERSION) like most folks have ..

    What is my passenger seat would be your drivers seat ...
    Looking under the seat - toward the front against the sheetmetal of the truck was my fuse ...

    Sometimes it's a bit challenging to see it because of dirt and road grime ... I had to use a flashlight with a rag to do some serious looking when I found it right in front of me..

    If you don't find it .. hopefully one of the others who have your year model will provide you with the info needed ...

    S83P 4wd specifics: only one 10mm bolt holding 4wd actuator. Remove bolt and move actuator out of way. The fuse holder is mounted to the shift linkage. It's really too difficult to loosen as I tried. However with a small headed flat headed screwdriver you can push up from the very top of the spilt in the fuse. With patience it will come out.
