wiring diagram clarification
« on: 12 January 2021, 11:48:46 »

Have been getting my head around the wiring as stuck at home , cant get to my unit easy as road closed for patching and not going 10 miles extra to get there! Anyway started breaking down sections onto paper, window switches. Using rear switches for front and thats fine as colours the same , its just as not using master switch is the white  wire that goes to rear switches from safety (isolator?) switch a feed or ground .
Next is cooling blower for ECU /relay box, is that controlled by engine cooling fan switch and will I need it in my application in the Austin. I do want to fit ECU in passenger compartment but looks like the wiring will need extending , will see as not wanting to do that.

You're wasting your time with the ecu/fusebox fan. It was only fitted to the earliest of cars.

Between Haynes and the relay layout guide on here you should be able to figure out what's what as I presume you're losing the aircon.

The radiator switches ultimately override the ecu for the radiator fans. Also, the V6 Omegas were fitted with three fans for a reason.

No air con ,its an ex plod car and only has one rad fan. More worried about the window switch, the dia of the switch does not help (the main one) as it looks like it has some diodes and a transistor so does the switch earth or feed the window motor. I suspect earth as there is a permanent live to motor .

It would have had two fans between the grill and the bumper and one between the radiator and the engine.

Well it was old bill. Do you have any idea about window switch?

The driver's switch is the master, even if rears are manual.

Whether this matters on a pre/mid facelift car I couldn't say. Plod almost certainly had manual rear windows.

No it had electric rears, using console rear switches for front. It was never a patrol car , the only clue is extra ariel fitting , calibrated speedo and chipped ECU . No sign of light bar but there were a few extra wires under headlining. Will make a dummy rig up to test motors and switch then.

Retrofitting the rear windows was about two hours work, some parts and a fuse. Apart from the regulator rivets was completely plug and play.

And probably the most common ex plod mod along with leather interior.  ;)

On the radiator? Yes.

SAI will throw a code if not plugged in. Whether it is plumbed in or not is irrelevant, but the ecu expects to see it. There may be a cheat for it.

There is. I can ask Ian how he did the one on his MGB.
