    Hi all - My brake lights, rear running lights, and turn signals are not working. I just started installing my new WIPAC LED conversion kit on my 1988 D90. I cut the connectors on the two tail-lights and wired them to the car using crimps. Ground to ground, red to red, and green to green. So...

    So I am starting to look at adding off road lights to my D90. It has the original safari rack and ARB bumper. I want to maintain the classic Hella look, but definitely want something newer that works well and does not require me to change out a lot of electrical or power components. Hoping I...

    Can anyone identify this connector on the top of my 300tdi and tell me what is supposed to be plugged in there? TIA.

    Im having a problem with my running lights/turn signals. When the headlights/running lights are off, the front turn signals work well. However, when the running light are turned on, both the blinkers and the turn signals dim and the flash. The rear blinkers work correctly. I understand this...

    Okay, this is no longer a problem, as I solved it. However, one mystery still persist. Have I said before that electical is my least favorite part of restoration? Well it is. So, driving into town in my 1990 Defender 90 this morning, I notice that it had a hard time starting. It was our first...

    I have fully restored a Series III 109 (not too bad as Stealth Swimwear now uses it in their ads). So I have some experience, but I'm not a expert by any means. I am now restoring a 1990 Defender 90. Everything under the hood is new, brand new (runs great). I have finished my body work and paint...

    My 1996 Defender has developed a host of weird electrical issues most probably all related: 1) most weird of all: when the motor is running and the hazard lights are on, when I turn the key off and even take the key out, the motor keeps running until I turn off the hazard lights. The instant I...

    Hi All, I have a 1995 NAS D90 soft top. Few weeks ago one of my H4 headlights went dim and later headlights cease to turn on. When I turn on parking lamps, all is fine. But when I switch on lights (fully depressing the light switch stalk on the left of steering column), the high beam blue...

    Hi all, Any advice on where to get an electrical schematic for a 1990 Tithonus? I'm looking for the easiest way to trace a short for a 20A fuse that blows immediately when you put a new fuse in. The 20A fuse controls a few things and the icons from what i can tell are for the horn, interior...

    My 110 is having electrical issues. It cranks fine but gauges, headlights, dome lights, turn signals, horn, and wipers will work only occasionally. When they do come on I can hear a relay click. Sometimes I will hear it clicking often. I am not sure where to start looking. Is it a ground...

    I have an '87 110. The wiring has been butchered over the years. I wanted to add a stereo, interior lights and some exterior rear lights. I was thinking of creating a new lead off the battery with fuses to power this "new" stuff. Any thoughts on doing this? I was also thinking about...

    OK - lets figure out an issue that is plaguing me. I clearly have some kind of electrical issue going on. I think this problem existing prior to my alternator going bad and when it started to fail things just got worse. IT is clearly better than before I changed the alternator but it is still...

    What's the best way to do this on a 200tdi? I'm thinking I could use the feed from the D+ terminal on the back of the alternator to trigger a relay. Does that sound right? Any other ideas?

    At some point in our 1988 110's life a PO had a problem with the left side headlight and ran a new wire form the fuse box. When I got a hold of it I removed the wire and left side fuses and installed an ARB headlight relay kit that worked off of the right side. Its been working fine since I...

    You ever have those days... endlessly searching google for a whatchamacallit you don't know the name of? If you're anything like me, the answer is "always". Anyhoo, WTF is this thing called and who/what/where can I learn more about stuff like this? Searching electrical terminal, electrical...

    OK, so I've worked on this issue for over 10 hours, and have not got anywhere with it. Put 300Tdi and R380 into 1988 110. The old wiring harness is being used for simplicity, for compatibility with rest of truck. In my mind, before putting the dash back together and all the body pieces back...
