before I re-invent the wheel...

Has anyone converted a military wiring harness over to using the standard light switch ?
If so would you share what you did ?

I ran a togle switch in my Series IIa between my lights battery, and switch to bypass the harness. Stephen at SafariHP has the 109 right now so I do not have any photos.

I don't think there is any other way than removing the military switch and splicing in new wires to the civilian switch. You need to join a few wires to get all the running lights in the circuit.

Good morning....

This should be of use,more importantly the second link....

Land Rover Addict Forums

and here


http://forum.lro.com/viewtopic.php?f...94996&start=10

The post on Sat 31 Jan 2015 at 0958hrs (by 'someoldbloke')gives a step through.

PRC3875 should be the indicator etc,switch part number you need.


I had these bookmarked as my army switch was temperamental...I repaired it,so kept it as it was.

All the best

Thanks Ohlins. I haven't dis assembled the truck yet and wasnt aware the plug for the standard switch might be there. This project just got much easier.
