Wiring assistance

Anyone venture a guess as to the purpose of the two purple wires and the green/red wire that splits to two green/red wires in the harness? I believe they are for the radio and clock, but not sure after looking at the diagrams. I am terrible with wiring and my headlamps still are inop.

I dont have it in front of me but I believe the green-red is one of the turn signal indicators, and I think purple is an aux power circuit.

You need to download, RAVE, look at circuit diagrams and all your questions will be answered.

ha, you dont need any more MREs!

I tore out a bunch of old wiring that the aux lights and headlamp wiring was jerry rigged into. New switches, etc and still no lights. Headlamps only on when momentary brights are on.

You need to fat trace with a voltmeter and the circuit diagram. The headlight circuit is pretty simple.

I had a look at Rave. green-red is your left hand signal (which feeds front/rear/side) and the purple, while could be many things, tends to be a main power lead, I see a green/red and a purple running to the hazard switch, and I guess that those leads are supposed to be running either there or to your signals on the column.

Thanks for looking Mark. I read it the same way, but the turn signals and hazards are all operational, hence my confusion. They are both constant power lines.

But, Problem solved! And Im a raging idiot as usual....

The PO wired in his own headlamp relay powered off the purple lines and spliced into the headlamps in the engine bay as well as the front aux lights. I cut all that out and reconnected per factory wiring using RAVE. When I still didnt have headlamps, I assumed my turn signal or light switch or headlamp relay was bad, so I fit new ones but still didn't have headlights. After realizing I did not have power at the headlamps and then fuses 7-10, I went to see if the 15A headlamp relay fuse was good. Well, there was no fuse at position 1... The PO had removed it since he had his own relay/in line fuse for his jerry rigged lighting. I guess I should have checked every fuse relating to the headlamps prior to all this... lesson learned.

Thanks all!

ha! I already beat you to it. In my frustration last week, I let those lines dangle and it completely drained my battery. But it was a good excuse to get a Diehard Platinum.

Which manuals are those diagrams from? I'm looking at a 40 page "Electric Circuit Diagrams" Land Rover manual, full color. But yours breaks it down with that key...

Those two lines are full purple and have continuous power. My clock and interior lights are operational. Looking at a Power Distribution Diagram, 3 purple lines from Header Joint K109 go to Passenger Compartment Fusebox (P101), Service Engine Timer (D151), and Radio/Cassette Power Amplifier (F111). Hmmm
