Quick wiring question

Recommended Posts

I have two wires I need to identify. I think they are diff lock warning light and reversing light.

One wire is green, the other is green with brown or brown with green :blink: .

Both have female spade type connectors on the end (originals)

So which is which?

Green/Brown trace is reverse lights wiring.

Green is a power feed ignition controlled.

difflock switch only has one power wire the other is earth & attached with a ring terminal to the difflock housing forward inner bolt

reverse light switch uses 2 x spade terminals.

Now I am confused!

These are two separate feeds, each with one wire as described and with an original femal spade connector (long plastic type housing).

So ar you saying I should have more wires somewhere? They may well be there, just haven't looked closely yet.....!!
