Nightmare situation!!!!

An anyone tell me where I might get a detailed wiring diagram for an 1989 defender 110 hard top with a 200tdi engine? I'd swapped fuse boxes to a blade type but struggled with the rear lights. Anyway to cut a long story short an auto electrician I found on the Internet came round, stripped out all of the wiring to the fuse box I'd done claiming it was all wrong even though everything but the rear lights was working and pulled it all apart. He then proceeded to just colour match everything and plug it back in. When he realised he'd totally cocked it up he just upped and left. He now won't respond to my calls or texts. I doubt I can afford another auto electrician to come out now so am going to have to try and figure it all out myself.
If anyone knows of anything that may help please please let me know!!!

The issue with your rear lights likely had nothing to do with the fuse box.

There wasn't a 1989 200tdi 110 so no one will have a diagram that specific but any diesel
diagram should suffice.
Download a factory work shop manual- they are all over the internet and there should be a fuse box wiring/color coding diagram
there.

Here's a start, others will likely have better info: http://www.landroverweb.com/landrove...rover-manuals/

Workshop manual part 5 has the EWDs. And there also appear to be a few files just for the 200tdi.

in the spectrum of my automotive experience, in regards to complexity of electrical diagrams, you have from simple to complex: sandrail/dune buggies, then defenders, then all other cars.

it's well docemented. everything you need is online and easy to find. good luck.

Thank you all very much. I genuinely appreciate all of your help. I'm desperate to get it running again. It's the first 4x4 I've owned and am REALLY looking forward to trying green laning if I ever find any near me!!!

My main harness in my 110 burned up. After checking the replacement cost and about had a stroke!! I took it one step at a time with the factory diagram and started cutting, splicing, soldering and heat shrinking. Everything works!!! Take your time once you get into it it's really not that bad. Just think of the hourly rate you'll save. Good Luck

Here's a suggestion, join the LRUK forum.. Not to knock the guys here but I can guarantee there will be someone local to you that'd come round & help you out. Don't forget to join GLASS too & tread lightly

Crap there are other LR forums!

In any event it sounds like you've got your work cut out for you. Hopefully you've got the time to spend on it to figure it all out. It will be better that paying for someone else to learn it! Good Luck.
