HELP! Td5 wiring is keeping me from my travels!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Have had the head down concentrating on the conversion, look what I done...

I'm in big trouble though, I've two loose wires coming out of the 10AS and the comprehensive reference photo's I took when dismantling just aren't comprehensive enough. I've arrowed the wires in the photo. The green one is going into a switch then coming back out but going nowhere. The purpose of the switch - I'm assuming - was as a basic immobiliser against theft.

The other wire, white, has been spliced onto a black wire (grouped with a red) which again I don't remember where it's supposed to go.

I've cut a Sigma M30 alarm out of the system so I probably wasn't paying enough attention when I did it. I'm wishing I'd just left it there now but I was afraid it'd give up on me somewhere in the middle of Europe and I'd be immobilised in the back of beyond.

Any help or suggestions appreciated!

classic RR, more to the point what vehicle has that Td5 come out of ????

It's a Defender unit, at least I'm guessing it is. It had a Disco R380 and exhaust, Defender loom and rad and Disco airbox & ducting when I got it in a '92 Rangey :D

The loom is now a f*&ked up mutation of '73 and '92 Range Rover and Defender. The gearbox is now Defender R380 and I hope to find Defender turbo/intake ducting cause I wanna put a second battery in my second battery box...

It's all academic if I can't get the frickin' thing running though :(

Yeah I'm screwed if I cant get it sorted. I doubt theres anyone in Ireland who'd know.

The white wire is actually white and green and the black wire originates as a purple and brown wire coming from both connectors on the 10AS, could this just be an earth?

It'd make sense to me in that I would have been cavalier enough about leaving it unterminated as an obvious earth.

;) Have done already, he's a busy boy though and I'm worried I might not hear from him for a while. I probably need to relax a little about it, I've been these situations before though and just freaking out a little at the prospect of this turning into a saga... :unsure:

Green/White - should be an igntion feed, and also supplies a feed to the back up siren...

But the rest of the wiring looks none standard - should be a feed for the LED on the dash I think amoung other things.

When I next get chance (will be home again next) will double check as have a standard, un-messed with loom at home.

Other option is to send me your ECU and I'll remove the need for the 10AS unit.... which will mean a few changes to the wiring, but nothing major... but you will have no immobilser at all!!


P.s - Shackleton thank you for you pm's!!!
