    Relay crimp terminal Identification

    VAG terminals to fit the relay socket 8E0 937 527 are - Smaller terminal To fit two cable sizes, both available as - A Repair Wire - 000 979 133 (1.0 mm²) A Crimp Terminal - N 906 844 05 (1.0 mm²) A Repair Wire - 000 979 225 (2.5 mm²) A Crimp Terminal - N 906 845 05 (2.5 mm²) Larger Terminal To fit one cable size, available as - A Repair Wire - 000 979 236 (2.5 mm²) A Crimp Terminal - N 103 197 01 (2.5 mm²) I can't find a match for 000 979 236 (N 103 197 01) from anyone other than VAG Polevolt sell relay terminals for the MTA Modular Fuse and Relay System, these look very much like the 'Timer' type terminals used in the VW relay sockets. 6.3mm Terminals for relay modules 1 - 2.5mm cable, Ref: 3-2030 6.3mm Terminals for relay modules 2.5 - 4mm cable, Ref: 3-2050 These look very much like the Terminal used on the Repair Wire - 000 979 135 Which is also available as a Crimp Terminal - N 907 326 03 2.8mm Terminals for relay modules 0.5 - 1mm cable, Ref: 3-5620 2.8mm Terminals for relay modules 1.5 - 2.5mm cable, Ref: 3-5630 These look very much like the Terminal used in the relay socket 8E0 937 527 above.  Unfortunately, Polevolt don't ship outside of the UK.

    Td5 looms into a earlier pre 1991 vehicle

    C0195 is a 3-way female Econoseal III 070 connector - It's wired as follows - Terminal 1 - White/Green - Ignition-switched live, from fuse 12 (10A) in the bulkhead fuse box Terminal 2 - Black - Earth, to header C0550 (earth stud on bulkhead in engine compartment) Terminal 3 - Black/Red - Signal, to speedo Pink ISO connector (C1060) The wiring for these is already in your main harness (from connector C0448), and would normally go through connector C0162 on the engine harness, that mates with C0448 on the main harness. In C0448 (and C0162) the wires are on the following terminals - White/Green - Terminal 12 Black - Terminal 6 Black/Red - Terminal 10 I can supply the Sumitomo 14-way male connector (C0162), if you wanted to make your own engine harness? .

    The speedo transducer connector (C0195) is on the engine harness. It's wired via the main harness to engine harness connectors C0448/C0162 .

    The four connectors in your picture, are - A. Main Lighting Switch (LH side of column) B. Rear Fog Lamp 'one-touch' ECU (behind instrument pack) C. Wash/Wipe Switch (RH side of column) D. Horn/Dip/Flash Switch (LH side of column) For the rear fog lamp switch - 1999 - 2001 - have the Lucas type rocker switch down by your right knee 2002 - 2006 - have the push/push type in the console in the centre of the dash .

    Td5 Main Loom to Engine Loom Connectors

    The 14-way Grey connectors are Sumitomo HW series - I have these complete. They are available from Land Rover, in a bag of 10 housings, without the White plastic terminal lock, without terminals, wire seals or cavity blanks. The 4-way connector is a TE 2.5mm pin and socket, made for BMW. These are not available from Land Rover, but can be bought at a BMW dealer. I've previously posted-up some BMW part numbers for these, I'll have a search and see if I can find my post. .

    Washer pump wiring capacity

    Mo, I don't know what the washer pumps draw, but both the front and rear washer pumps are wired in 1.0mm² cable, which is good for 16A I'm a bit dearer than Autosparks, but I have the proper connectors, with 'PosiLock' terminals, which have a sprung platform which locks them to the male tab. Available in 'Natural' or Black, they are supplied with 2 x terminals, for £0.95 each + £1.25 for 1st class P&P (cheaper than Autosparks) .

    Melted header joint and lighting problems

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I thought that I'd found some stocks of the Blue headers - but, after chasing them for an answer, all they had was the Blue terminal blocks, without the splice cap 😞 Anyway, I'll send you a PM regarding the headers you want. Paul.

    The switch you have (YUG000540LNF) is designed to switch the earth side of a relay's coil (terminal 85) to earth. It should be wired from relay terminal 85 to switch pin 1 The switch switches pin 1 to pin 4 in the 'on' position. Pin 4 should be wired to earth. As in this diagram - The switch terminals should be wired as follows - Pin 1 - From the earth side of the Relay (Pin 85) Pin 2 - To Dash Illumination Header (or an adjacent switch) Pin 3 - Not Used (but connected internally to Pin 4) Pin 4 - To Dash Earth Header (or an adjacent switch) Pin 5 - Live from Accessory side of Relay (Pin 87), for 'tell-tale' orange LED Although you have the switch wired incorrectly, the reason that your background illumination is working, is that it's finding an earth path through the bulb of your work lamp. You'll not get the tell-tale LED working with it wired this way. If you don't need a relay with your work lamp, there are a few ways that you can wire it to this switch - 1. Run the live directly to the lamp, with its earth run back to the switch - however, this way has it's own problems - As there's no output side of a relay, running a wire from the live side of the lamp to switch pin 5, would light the tell-tale LED permanently ☹️ Some lamps may be earthed through their mountings. 2. Change the switch body of YUG000540LNF for the body from a live-switching switch. The cheapest option for this, is the Defender TDCi heated seat switch YUF500150LNF, which costs just under £10 http://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/Item--i-YUF500150LNF Apart from swapping-over the switch fronts, the only other modification is to remove the switch's body keyway - YUF500150LNF also uses the Black 5-way connector, and should be wired as follows - Pin 1 - Live in (from fused supply) Pin 2 - Dash illumination Pin 3 - Not used (but is internally connected to Pin 5 - Earth) Pin 4 - Switched live out to accessory (or relay) Pin 5 - Earth 3. Modify YUG000540LNF internally, to turn it into a live-switching switch - this is easy and costs nothing 😀 Open up the switch, and cut the Brass track, as shown in Red, here - This separates pins 3 and 4, meaning that the pinouts would then be - Pin 1 - Live in (from fused supply) Pin 2 - Dash illumination Pin 3 - Earth Pin 4 - Switched live out to accessory (or relay) Pin 5 - Live for tell-tale LED You could connect pins 4 and 5 internally so that the tell-tale LED lit in the 'on' position - but, it's just as easy to crimp a loop of cable from the terminal in pin 4, round to pin 5 .
  11. Just made a  purchase from you on eBay, super fast response, thank you.  Without people like you, projects like mine would never get finished.

      Thank you for your kind words 🙂

    As this switch switches the relay's coil to earth, there's no internal positive connection to the tell-tale LED. To illuminate the tell-tale LED, you need to run a wire from terminal 87 on the relay, to pin 5 on the switch.

    Melted header joint and lighting problems

    Hi Björn, I haven't got the headers listed on eBay. I've sold out of the Blue headers, and I'm still trying to source some more. However, a Black header (which I have stocks of) can replace a Blue header, by including a loop of cable between the terminals in cavities 3 and 4, when you crimp on the new terminals. Hopefully these diagrams, shown from the cable entry side, explain - Blue header Black header I also have the Orange (Red) headers - The headers are £9.95 each + P&P I supply each of them with 20 x terminals for 0.5 - 1.5mm² cable. If you have a Black one to replace a Blue one, I'll include some terminals for 2.0mm² cable. What are the connector numbers (from the Electrical Library) for the headers you need to replace ? Paul.
