Discovery 2 genuine spot light switch pin setup

Recommended Posts

Hi all.  Hope everyone is well. 
im hoping someone can help. So I have a discovery 2 spot lamp switch which fits in place of the blank spot up where the fog light switches go.  
I already have set up a aux fuse box one with a permanent live side and a side that only becomes live when ignition on.  
what I want to do is have the front spot lamps On a permanent live so I can turn them on at the spot lamp switch when I need them with out the ignition on. 
is this possible and how. Also does anyone know the pin set up on the back of the switches.  There are 5 pins. 
 

it’s purely for usability when working and would rather be able to turn them on and not leave the key in the ignition when working  

ideally I want to be able to use the genuine switch as I prefer a normal genuine Land Rover look. Not aftermarket   

many thanks.

The D2 spotlight switch is a non-latching (momentary) earth-switching switch, intended to switch the D2's spotlight electronic control unit.

As such, it's wired as follows -

Pin 1 - from ECU

Pin 2 - from dash illumination 

Pin 3 - not used

Pin 4 - to earth

Pin 5 - live from spotlights (to illuminate the switch's tell-tale LED)

 

To achieve what you want, you will need to use a latching live-switching switch, such as the Defender Puma heated seat switch, and swap the switch front for the D2 spotlight switch front.

Hi Paul MC that’s great thank you. It did cross my mind earlier if that would be the issue. Thank you for confirming. Much appreciated. Thankfully I have a puma heated seat switch I can swap over.
