Together, they cited information from. This article was co-authored by our trained team of editors and researchers who validated it for accuracy and comprehensiveness. Are they wired the same?? To fill, the fill plug is about in line with the centre of the handbrake drum and to the left. Flasher pin label What it connects to X Switched 12 V green wire L Power to turn signal lights P power to flasher indicator light Headlamp socket: Sometimes you might purchase a replacement headlamp socket from a company that provides pig tail leads that do not follow ther British standard and you need to figure out which circuit each lead needs to be connected to. You may choose to wrap a length of exposed wire around a bolt on the battery cable, or you may choose to purchase a new Positive cable end. The hole in the switch body is in line with the lock assembly's spring loaded pin somewhere between the off and on position. I've searched rave but on this occasion its been no help Any suggestions? Mount it inside your engine bay somewhere along the body of the vehicle.
It's quite painful having to cobble together what will be a bit of an ugly loom, but it's the quickest option. If anyone has a wiring diagram to suit, or can point me in the direction of how to identify what we're dealing with, it would be much appreciated. I know one lad who has done his Defender 110 pickup into a camper van. Or more drastically drill a hole just inside the front of rear roof bar mounting point, although in theory you cound use the mounting points themselves. This is a good set up where did you route your wiring? From reading previous posts I beleive it is now a legal requirement to have a method of switching th spots off when on main beam. Identify a fuse that powers an electronic device that only functions when the vehicle is running, such as the radio, headlights or turn signals.
Here is a link to a with more electronics. Run a wire from the relay to the switch. There are three variations of the combination ignition headlamp switch that I am aware of. Most stoplights should not be wired directly to a power source without being run through a relay. Run a length of wire from the fuse holder to the positive terminal on the battery. Where's the best place to mount the relay? There should be: ground power in illumination power in power out the indicator lights up when the switch is closed and sends power to the relay to close.
I use the stock bumper and not a winch bumper been there done that fog lights which work fine with up graded headlight bulbs and I am not fitting a roof rack, the Discovery is limited to weight it can take up top. A label on the rear of the glovebox hopper shows the circuits protected, the fuse values and their locations. I am getting switched power from the highbeams so that with switches on, they will come on and off with the highbeams. There should be: ground power in illumination power in power out the indicator lights up when the switch is closed and sends power to the relay to close. Thank you very much tho, that is the best diagram I have seen yet. Push the lock assembly into the the switch body. Thanks in advance, both for you patience and answers! Behind that you can see two blue wires and a couple of others.
Whats happening is, is that the fuse for the main beam is blowing. Hope some of that helps? This is done by opening the glovebox normally and then pinching the top of the support stays located either side of the hopper. The engine compartment fuse box is located at the rear of the engine bay. Then ask your questions away mostly abuse free! This will leave only the switch visible, with the rest behind the trim. If you would like to discuss any of the contents, or just say hi, please feel free to. If it was designed to be mounted on your roof, it may have come with a strip of weather proofing material to prevent water from leaking through your roof where the holes are drilled.
I actualy found it through a rather lengthly google search. Mount the switch in the dashboard. This can end up looking like this. Each style of light has its own strengths and weaknesses and should be chosen based on application and budget. This is a great help to those of us maintaining our own British cars allowing us to glance at a wire and know what it is being used for.

I'd suggest they are only for use off road and therefor should be wired to it's own switch. There should be a bracket in the kit which mounts in front of the battery. If it jostles loose, the spotlight will fail to function. Previous owner has frigged about with it a bit but things are mostly where the factory put them.
Shoul I order the part you guys are using. Any wire connected to the second A terminal will have power at all time. This contact is hot only when the headlamp switch is in the 'S' position. You will still need to use an accessory relay with a switch modified in this way, but at least it will be wired in a conventional manner. Use the hardware supplied in your spotlight kit to mount the light in the location of your choosing. Push the screwdriver into the hole and slowly rotate the key. Which one you use is personal preference.
Bump you are a superstar, funnily enough I had just printed out that exact diagram, it had only taken me about two hours of searching, also i've got the carling switch pin readout for all their switches courtesy of Devon 4x4 where I bought the switches. Jun 05, 2009 No need for a diagram, to drain the oil, there's a drain plug on the bottom of the transfer box, under the handbrake drum. If anyone can help me on this matter it would be grately apriciated, thank you very much. Drill the mounting holes for the spotlight. This will prevent the spotlight from working when the vehicle is not running. The kit live feed comes straight from the battery positive via a fused lead. While the United Kingdom was still the colonial empire and take full advantage of their position for the dissemination of Land Rover in all of its provinces.
