Wow, As I guessed - many things people took for granted is actually a life saver. Much like a Sedan's Dash, a Jeep's Dash speaks volumes! I REALLY never knew about (1) fast idler switch (2) Battery charging Indicator 'technical eye opener' (3) LOW Brake Fluid indicator

Thanks a ton Behram sir.

Dear Berham Sir,
It is not a non-standard switch. It is the original hazard warning switch but the red cover is missing

Suresh Sir,

Could you please clarify which hazard warning switch is that? Most of them are next to the steering wheel (1) Brake fluid+Handbrake (2) Turn Signal (3) Engine Oil Pressure... What else could that be?

Dear Suresh Stephen - you are correct, it is the hazard warning switch. I stand corrected. Thank you.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Ok, I'll get that done next time.

The CJ340 has the Lucas TVS SA15 alternator. When the engine is not running (alternator rpm is zero) and the ignition key is switched on, the field excitation currect flows through the filament of this tiny bulb. If this bulb blows, the alternator will not charge. It is very important to check that this bulb is glowing when you turn the key on before you start the engine.
Sorry, I got confused. In fact, I learnt the importance of this bulb the hard way. I never used to bother looking at this bulb before. One day my Jeep simply refused to start somewhere in Udupi, the battery was dead. Reason, the bulb was out, battery couldn't be charged. Fortunately it was very near Sachin's shop, so he took care of getting the auto electrician and replaced the bulb.

All,

Please tell me which 'hazard' is warned through this switch/bulb. I think this is a light bulb? Please advise.

Actually the fast idle is possible on the later FIP's too. Just that you don't have a cable attached and need to pop the lid to increase the idling.

This fast idler is on my Classic too and i used it to set the idle high and use 4 Low and let the Jeep drive up an incline on its own. Used to do the job of pressing the accelerator for me.

You need to set it back to its initial position after you have had your fun with it. Orelse the accelerator cable used to go a bit slack.

Dear Santhosh,
It is the standard hazard warning light like the cars which will activate all the indicators simultaneously.

Thanks Suresh, Last night sometime around 2AM I was on GQ returning from Chennai (to Blore). Had to stop and switched on the parking lights - Suddenly realized this is called the HAZARD warning light aKa PARKING Lights. Never occured to me that even a JEEP needs such a switch.

2. That is the hazard light switch. The bulb is a switch by itself. You need to push the bulb "in" to activate.

1 is the fast idler, 2 is the throttle.

Today I gave the Jeep for post-offroad service. Now the local Mahindra Workshop has become familiar with the post-offroad service concept. The SA was asking how much water level I enountered and for how long, etc., to access the damage to oil seals, etc.

And they found an U-Clamp missing under the driver side.
