200Tdi ignition hookup

Got my keys and ignition back and of course I removed in haste and thought I could remember how it was connected! :-/

Any guidance will be helpful...


I have four wires;

brown heavy gauge - large connector spade

brown w/ red heavy gauge - large connector spade

White heavy gauge - small connected spade

Two white one w/ black small gauge - small connector spade

I also have push button start with the large white w/ red and small gauge brown.

- On the ignition I only recall four wires being connected.... Using all post except # 4 since. I was able to confirm this recollection since it's the only post with dust and crud. I did find another small white wire with small spade connector and piggy back was connected but didn't know if it came off when I pulled the ignition.

I have searched different threads and couldn't find exact information to my wires and ignition.

Thanks in advance for the assistance gents!!

Jason

You are in luck as i just had to redo wiring bc of a small fire. Here's my best guess (i didnt take my ignition out so i didnt see the numbers).
Single large brown 5 terminal
White wire 1 terminal
Red/white 4 terminal
Black/white 3 terminal
Brown/brown 2 terminal

Thanks! That does seem to be the correct connection for wires! Can someone tell me if I'm missing a small fitting to go over the male end? I took off the back end of ignition and can turn the switch with a screwdriver, I'm thinking the lock smith must have missed a lil part!? The truck won't fire! But heater other aux items run but not my dash lights and what not.Does the ignition need to be grounded in some way? Thanks!

You are missing the knobly bit that fits between the two parts. You should be able to start and drive the truck with a screw driver at this point. No need to ground the housing.

Take a few minutes and double check the wiring and PIN numbers.

The white wire with the red stripe is the "crank" starter wire. If the accessories come on, but the engine won't crank, you can try a momentary jumper between the brown/white wire (hot) and the white/red wire with the key (screwdriver) turned to the "run" position. This will jump past the internal contacts and should crank the engine.

If this doesn't crank the engine, you may have a low battery or some other issues that needs to get sorted.

The advice is worth what you paid for it.

Thanks the lock smith admits to a part falling out! Ha ha he's thinks it's on his work bench!? I've hooked up the wires but still not getting red battery light and other lights on dash. Auxs run and it's cranking even without ignition wires since I have the push button wired. Not sure why I'm not getting a fire? Ugh!!!
