Hi all

Some lowlife stole our UHF out of our Patrol a while ago, and in the process ripped out the centre console - disconnecting every damn plug they could in the process.

I need to re-connect our compressor, and am left with a bunch of wires to re-connect to the main isolating switch. If anyone might be able to have a look at theirs (if it is visible) and tell me which wire goes onto which terminal I'd be eternally grateful :)

Back of the switch - terminals:

Wire 1) Red
Wire 2) Black with 2 brown dots
Wire 3) Black with 2 brown dots (another one)
Wire 4) Red with yellow stripe
Wire 5) Blue with white stripe

Diagram of the back of the switch - terminals: [ View Image]

Now, there another 2 wires (separate, and that come off the loom and used to go under the dash somewhere (this bloke cut them off :evil: ).

Wire 6) Red with yellow stripe
Wire 7) Blue with white stripe.

Thanks guys - if anyone knows what goes where ..... :oops:

Cheers
Chrispy

Why do they use so many wires? I've got an ARB style switch for my Blue Tounge that I put in to isolate my compressor (as I'm using an ARB pressure switch) and only require and Earth, In and Out + whichis only 3 wires...??

Jeff

The ARB switch actually has two lights in it - one that comes on with the cabin lights and another when the compressor is active.

I need much the same info, but i haven't installed mine yet & bought in many years ago.

Can you summarise the connections of the switches & those two extra wires where did they go?

Cheers

Sure Richard - Here's the diagram:

The two extra wires go to ignition and cabin lights.

Mate...worked out the following in no time flat thru a couple of sources, LCool as well as your wiring diagram clear it up in my head.

1. Switches actually have illumination when the lights are on
2. Supposed to go thru ignition because you shouldn't run it too long without the car running & because of the higher voltage, the pump will work faster.
3. Many people agreed that even with just the switches wired up on the dash, the car should be able to go further & faster even without the actual diff locks. (pity my car aint Red as well I spose!)

Cheers
