If the fan resistor appears to be ok, it might be as easy as pulling the fuse - try to the left of the glovebox, but if you can't find the A/C FAN there, it might be in the box near the ABS unit.

^ Wire gauge cannot be stressed strongly enough. Buying thin cables, or using a cable rated for its maximum load and not its continuous load, is dangerous.

There were a few changes between my 2009 and yours, but I doubt many were in the "gee let's stuff them around and change all the fuses and bulbs to annoy the shit out of them" category.

I think that if you're going to go somewhere that presents a risk of lifting a front wheel, a locker or autolocker is a good idea.

The reason isn't the simplicity of the extra parts - it's because...

My tyre guy says the same sort of thing about my front suspension, and tells me that Pedders apparently have some way of fixing it.

I will be calling Pedders in the next day or two to try and sort...

I think I'll step in now, the above advice is brilliant.

It sounds like the SCV fault that those of us with YD25 D40s experience, but I don't know if the V9X has an SCV.

It might be the suction control valve, too. Or the turbocharger itself. We need to check these things.

I haven't looked under the bonnet of a 2015 D40, but I am fairly sure that in around 2012 or so they changed to an electronic actuator control because the vacuum-operated one...

I think my larger cooler cost about $300, it's the one you should consider because the little ones like those that Supercheap sell won't really do much. After that it's mechanic's labour costs. There...

You might have two separate problems. The lack of power - if it's not the turbocharger control - will more than likely be the SCV. This is a widget that lives on the fuel pump, has 2 Torx bolts that...

It's not a problem that I've experienced, but at a guess I'd say the gearbox may have gotten a little hot. This thins the oil, and if the TCC disengages it will slip a lot more.
