Power Window Wiring

Does anyone have a how to when it comes to wiring a set of doors with power windows to my defender? I have a td5 dash so I would like to use the stock PW switches... I am not great with wiring.

Same boat as you. I have the Spal Deluxe set. I made a mistake thinking the Discovery and Defender Window switches are the same. They aren't. Definitely need the 5 pin defender switches. They just flip flop polarity. Makes for an easy two wire run to the motors.

Are you using oem hardware or something like Spal?

That should be easy-pessy then.

So you just need to decode the 6 (edit) pin connectors then. I think I have it saved somewhere.

Is there a loom on the doors?

Ok. That's easy... So direct power can be brought right to the switch. Should I do something like a 15amp fused direct feed then just out to the door with a small harness?

------ Follow up post added December 17th, 2015 10:23 AM ------

Also, where do you get the plugs for the switches?

This shows the switches directly powering the lift motors via 20 AMP fuses:



Ebay for the connectors? Im sure PaulMC has a lead on them too (the AMP connector comes apart with a paper clip btw):

02 5 Land Rover Front Window Lift Switch Discovery Freelander YUF101521LNF | eBay

I'm not sure how the door harness looks. Running two wires per switch to the respective door. Then tap into the door harness if you have one, or direct to the motor if you don't would be my guess.

Use a 30 amp relay in that system. Visit the 12 volt.com for wiring help. And tips...

fun part is fishing the wires down through the bulkhead door post. The power windows aren't so bad, its when you add the additional for central locking things get hateful.

They're not on eBay - but, I do have the White 6-way connectors for the YUF101521LNF electric window switches -

YUF101521LNF are used in Defender (from 2002), Discovery-2, and Freelander-1

Early Discovery-2 and Freelander-1 used YUF101520LNF, which has been superceded by YUF101521LNF which, I believe, has heavier duty contacts (the earlier switches would burn their contacts).


I can also supply the connectors to connect to the front door harnesses, for both electric windows and central locking -

I just finished installing 4 power window motors on my 110. Really easy once you figure out the first one. I used the SPAL deluxe kit (2), and their 7 switch wiring harness. I ended up just installing 4 switches in the dash, but have provisions for middle row door switches later. The biggest PITA is the running the wiring harness to the center dash, but the wiring kit has everything you need, even if you decide to use other switches.

Any pics of the switches?
