Matt Neale Posted February 15, 2006 Share Posted February 15, 2006 I recently added an 3/4 tonne sankey to my fleet.... Now, as I have a 110 CSW with civilian trailer sockets, I thought I'd rewire the Sankey with a civvy spec (12N) plug. The problem was that when I exposed the wiring on the Sankey, I soon spotted that all the wiring within the loom was yellow (sharp, eh?) - no colour coding. No problem, I thought - a quick search on a couple of the forums and I'll have the details.... Hmmm.... I found a couple of posts which explained that wiring loom was identified using a letter code - A through to N, and listed the function (indicator / stoplights etc) Great! So I go back and check the loom on my trailer... ...And find that all the wiring is numbered - not lettered. I've now stripped everything back, and (although obvious when you think about it....) can confirm the following:- [Pin A] = wire #1 = Convoy = not used on 12N [Pin B] = wire #2 = Stop = Pin 6 / Red [Pin C] = wire #3 = Convoy = not used on 12N[Pin D] = wire #4 = Earth = Pin 3 / White [Pin E] = wire #5 = Tail = Pin 5 (RH Tail/Brown) & Pin 7 (LH Tail / Black)[Pin F] = wire #6 = Fog = Pin 2 / Blue[Pin H] = wire #7 = Convoy = Not used on 12N[Pin J] = wire #8 = Stop = Pin 6 / Red[Pin K] = wire #9 = Aux = Not used on 12N[Pin L] = wire #10 = Earth = Pin 3 / White[Pin M] = wire #11 = LH Indicator = Pin 1 / Yellow[Pin N] = wire #12 = RH Indicator = Pin 4 / GreenHopefully this should save a bit of time for someone else who, like me, has a sankey and wishes to convert it to civilian spec electrics.
