  • Driving in the sands

    Hello
    Please help
    I have
    land cruiser 150 v6 282HP
    You might say I'm pretty disappointed with its performance
    When I travel in the sand I lower the air pressure to 10PSI
    Trying to climb a dune in the middle of the climb
    The columns fall to 1500 rpm
    And of course you can not continue because the car stopped
    In other vehicles, the columns do not descend
    But break off for a second and return
    I believe there is protection on the engine
    How can this be solved?
    And I also disconnected the ABS cable
    Thanks

      Can be
      I'll tell you what I'm doing
      1. Transmission in automatic mode
      Entering LOW mode
      The gears pass quickly and of course can not climb
      2 Switches the gears to manual mode
      Gear 1 and immediately into second gear I start the climb
      The RPM climbs to 5500 and then there is disconnection
      The rpm goes down to 1500

        Turn off your traction and stability controls. They are killing the power just when you need it.

          As I recorded at first I disconnect the cable from the ABS
          In other words, there is no active traction
          I tried too
          Turn the ARB lockers Rear axle Front axle

          I am pretty sure there is protection coming from the manufacturer and the question is if there is a way bypass it

            ABS != Traction Control, ABS is for not locking up brakes in an emergency braking situation (Anti Brake Skid). On a Prado there is a TCS button, hold it in for about 5 seconds when stopped (possibly in park still) and it will turn it off. Maybe your vehicle has something similar?

              Post a pic of the gearshift and surround buttons and 4wd button and those on the left of the steering wheel. Need to see if it is like ours.

              In mine I press 4wd (leave the twist range selector in hi) then push and hold the ESC button (right side of the steering column near the reverse sensor button) until traction and esc off lights come on. Then put the auto into manual and select a gear, usually 2nd.

                If your disconnecting things, could be going into limp mode.. who knows.. Sounds like you are trying to exceed the limits of speed in LOW mode. 40-50KMH is top speed.

                  This is how my dash looks. One I prepared earlier this afternoon. I dont use low range in soft sand, well not often. Pretty much rely on having appropriate tyre pressures.

                  If you dont have both traction and esc off you will lose power and bog down.

                    When you press the 5 second button it does cancel but not at 100 percent
                    When you disconnect the cable, there is no system interference
                    Of course it's not my security but I hang up
                    Only in the Off road

                      I do not pass the 40 KMh
                      As I mentioned I try to climb a sand hill
                      At about 40 degrees
                      To stay at high rpm to get torque I stay in gear 2
                      In L4 mode

                          Ok, I am lost. With both lights on the D4D at any rate cancels TC and ESC. Maybe someone with a V6 can offer an opinion. This driveline is the same in thev120s with auto, TC and ESC.

                            Starting to think your running super high tyre pressures.
