SOURCE: Timer not working Malibu ML88T Power pack

there are multipul 12 timers on the market BUT if you use a 12 volt power pack designed for a car radio display or even a simple 12v 5 amp laptop power suply and a cheep outdoor timer or cheeper indoor timer and run wires inside you can add lights
remember theise lights are low voltage and if you change the bulbs out you can really strech out the amprage too
low amp led automotive bulbs are a great invention they draw mili amps and use 12 volts
i converted my noma moonrays to a laptop power supply and added 30 more to a single string so i curently have 50 lights on 1 power suply pulling aprox 4.5 amps out of a 5A power supply i used led bulbs and simple moma cord now i can light the whole back yard with 1 ps and it's really bright if i use the led headlamps mounted under the soffit on the house

SOURCE: Malibu lights. there are 13 lights in the yard.

There are three possible scenarios that could cause this and two locations that you will need to check.
1) The power out from the 3rd light has come loose or the connection is corroded.
2) The power inot the 4th light has come loose or the connection is corroded.
3) The wire inbetween the 3rd and th light is damaged.
The two location to check are the 3rd light (last one that is still working) and the 4th light (the first one that is not working). You will want to dig up the electrical connections and redo them. While you have the electrical connections exposed, you can run a continuity test of the wire in the ground to see if it is damaged. Over time, the wire connections will start to corrode turning either a rusty color, or into a white powdery substance, and the corrosion adds resistance to the wiring. With a 12v system, it doesn't take much resistance to make the lights stop working.

I don't see your specific manual, but the operation might be similar to the ones shown here ... it could be that Malibu repeats the same instructions in different models

SOURCE: I have a Malibu ML88T timer on the garden lights.

Is the timer wheel rotating - keeping time?
If so, are there pins for the wheel?
The other option is to purchase a photo sensor and let your lights stay on from dusk til dawn. The benefit of this arrangement is that as dusk changes across the seasons and daylight savings time, you don't have to keep adjusting on/off times.

I need instructions for setting my Malibu ML88T


Do you mean the Intermatic Malibu ML88T power pack? Intermatic has most of their manuals on their support page: http://intermaticstore.com/en/productresources/productdocumentation . Since the ML88T is a discontinued model, click on the link on the right for Discontinued Product Documentation then on the power pack link. The ML88T support page is: http://intermaticstore.com/en/productresources/discontinued_product_documentation/power_packs . The direct link to the manual is http://intermaticstore.com/en/productresources/discontinued_product_documentation/power_packs/ml88t .

I hope this helps.

You did not say if these power packs are new or if they stopped working.
The humming sound says transformer is working, but terminals have to test 12Volts DC.
If power packs are older and were left plugged in when bulbs were not working, then power packs can go bad.
There are no replacement parts for power packs except trippers.

I have a Malibu ML88T timer on the garden lights. I guess the power pack is running can turn lights on off manually but the timer doesn't turn them off or on. Can this be repaired?

I need instructions on how to recalculate the timer. The yard and driveway lights come on during the day instead of the evening. I didn't put the system in....new owner....can't figure out the timer...Help


The RED tripper is for on. The black tripper is for 'off' and the dark colored section of the dial is for P.M., the light colored section is for A.M. Move to desired run times.
