Heater Plug Wiring for 200tdi


Recommended Posts

My defender started life as a petrol and one of the previous owners converted it to a 200 tdi. I think it is a discovery engine and gearbox. There is no switch wired in for the heater plugs at the moment. What is the easiest way to wire the heater plugs in, I'm not worried about having them on a timer. A simple switch would do. Wiring is not my strong point so an idea on wire sizes etc.... would be greatly appreciated! :P

Thanks

just leave the wiring away. A tdi starts fine without any heat even in coldest winters. I have 2 tdi's without wiring on them and have never had a problem.

You've never been anywhere cold then.....

The stock Defender 200TDI glow plug timer system should plug right into the existing harness without and hassle or modifications.

Thanks guys. Will try and have a look this weekend and see how it all fits in. Not sure how well everything was originally fitted to the vehicle so might be missing a few bits. :rolleyes: Used to notice on RRC 300tdi that the glow plugs make it a lot easier to start in the cold, saves load on the battery and a lot on emissions.

Thanks
