I am rewiring mine with a harness taken from a diesel and the genuine workshop manual does not have a diagram of this part of the electrics at all. I'll muddle through but a diagram would speed things up a lot. Some of the drivers handbooks may show it. They all seem different and just because the book is younger doesn't mean its got more information.
Have fun with the brake failure warning light! Diesels cut off about everything when the starter is operated but this is supposed to test itself when the starter is operated. Chasealex Overdrive! We had great fun trying to get the damned things working on mine. Chasealex said:. They're for the military versions, so have the added NATO 6-way switch complications. Thanks David, I've saved a copy of the diagram, it may help but mine is now a civilian harness.Hi All.
So could anyone point me in the right direction of connecting it up so I don't cause any damage? Want to check wiring setup as I don't want to be doing any frying!!
Hi does anyone know what the fuse ratings need to be for the queried??? All the Series fuse ratings suck, not least because LR don't fuse some stuff because glass fuses don't go above 35A more like 17A continuous before they glow.
Not sure where you got that diagram but it doesn't look like an original Series or Defender one to me, it's very odd and omits a few things - notably the flasher unit! Oil pressure switch, choke switch, alternator light, and gauges all run on ignition live through a low amp fuse, I'd be surprised if the whole lot drew more than 5A. Also is a voltage stabilizer needed? Just trying to figure out the wiring setup.
I've not seen that wiring-diagram before. The colour item attached is generally more useful. If not the creeping 'American', I agree with regard the fuse-ratings.
Not much save, heated-screens 15A? A biggish job- I junked much of the bird's-nest behind the instrument binnacle, and put in fuses at the proper rating for each item in the loom. Along with previous-owner Scotch-lok abortions, those fuse ratings are so over-the-top, no wonder many old looms are smoked.
I separated it all out. Else, as soon as you start putting any extras, it gets very awkward. As soon as you move it you'll pull something and put another fault on. Connecting the speedometer-cable will usually be enough. I soldered and shrink-wrapped extension wiring such that it's possible to have the speedometer binnacle sat on the drivers-seat whilst you work or test on the rest.
Unlike the factory-loom, give yourself a heap of spare wire to allow you to move stuff as you work on anything else. Cheapo crimps are not worth the hassle - you won't see that trash on a factory loom. And yes Series Land-rover Wiring in Colour. Worth noting that fuse rating does not equal fuse blow - the factory 35A glass fuses start to smoke at about 17A continuous load, which I suspect is why they never fused the lighting circuit on Series.
Wire's cheap enough after all. Before I separated it all out, I got away with 25A in there. Even 25A is a lot. And only if it blows, up your game to 30A etc. Just carry spares, to continue FFs wise words, fuses are even cheaper than wire. I really don't understand 35A however we dress it up.

A few months back i drew up a wiring diagram including the entire standard series layout, but highly altered to include a bank of relay's and a proper fusebox. I have decided to locate the fusebox and relay bank inside the lower dashboard at the drivers end, and modify this to be released using quarter turn fasteners.
Wiring diagram showing the hazard flashers, series 3??
I was looking online for fuse holders which are configurable etc and couldnt find much for cheap that will do the job, but i have remembered that i had my old TDi disco fuse holder still, its short by 6 fuse slots but i should be able to find another 10 bank one to compensate and leave extra blank slots for future use. I have modelled a small section of the bulkhead where i will fit the fusebox and relay bank so i can design the layout previous to actually starting the harness. I also have a spare bulkhead which will act as a mockup bulkhead.
This means ill get the harness pretty much complete apart from end terminations before it even sees the truck. First question: IIRC there is someone on this forum who can supply electrical connectors etc from the standard LR range? I need to make a few purchases from him! Second question: If i add up all the amperage requirements of the ignition switched circuits it seems to require a massively large feed wire and fuse, relay etc. Kettle's going to be getting a full new harness when she gets her new chassis.
The existing wiring is very poor now, there's an ordinary exterior junction box on the rear chassis leg where the looms failed and be reconnected! I think I'm going to drive up to Autosparks with her on a Friday, so they can have a good look at her and tell me what I need to order off the shelf to suit her, rather than trying to do it by phone or email, or trying to pick the right bits off the website. I don't know if there's anything they've got to suit the TDi or if I'll be redoing that again myself.
I've build several looms for various vehicles - biggest one was a 4x4 DAF Truck with living and a waterbed - but never anywhere near "original". My has over 60 fuses, 20 relays and a few non standard options for security. Serious amounts of cable went in and a custom build computer database to document it all. There are just numbers - no colour codes. The Series Hybris has a loom build by me and that has lasted over 20 years of abuse.
Use the best quality cable, connectors etc. I use VWP a lot, i like to use decent quality stuff too. I shall try and keep a spreadsheet of all the costs and components used, we'll then see how it costs out against something from autosparks or the likes.Forum Rules.
Land Rover Series 3 Wiring Loom Diagram
Results 1 to 2 of 2. Thread: Series 3 Heater and Blower wiring.
Thread Tools Show Printable Version. Australia Posts 1, Series 3 Heater and Blower wiring. Some of the info is from another Thread, as I don't have it included in any of my 4 manuals, wiring diagrams.
According to the wiring diagram the heater wire doesn't go through the fuse box but directly from the ignition and starter switch to the heater switch with an inline fuse somewhere along the way. Green and Yellow, is connected to terminal 6 on the heater switch. Green and White Brown is connected to terminal 8. The two connected wires then goes toward the heater, under the parcel shelf and through the LH side firewall grommits.
In the switches first position, the Green and Yellow wire passes though a coil of wire, acting as a resistor, then to the Blower via the black wire.
The switches second position, Green and white wire, puts the full 12v to the Black wire to the Blower. The small bracket is bolted to the firewall using one of the Heater box top bolts.

Would like a bit of help with my wiring on my tdi defender.This pictorial diagram shows us a physical connection that is much easier to understand in an electrical circuit or system.
An electrical diagram can indicate all the interconnections, indicating their relative positions. The use of this Array can be positively recognized in a production project or in solving electrical problems. This can prevent a lot of damage that even derail electrical plans. The layout facilitates communication between electrical engineers designing electrical circuits and implementing them.
The pictures are also helpful in making repairs. It shows whether the installation has been appropriately designed and implemented while confirming the safety regulators. A usually gives information about the relative position and arrangement of devices and terminals on the devices, to help in building or servicing the device.
This is unlike a schematic diagram, where the arrangement of the components interconnections on the diagram usually does not correspond to the components physical locations in the finished device. A pictorial would show more detail of the physical appearance, whereas a wiring diagram uses a more symbolic notation to emphasize interconnections over physical appearance.
Land Rover Series 3 Wiring Loom Diagram show the circuit flow with its impression rather than a genuine representation. They only provide general information and cannot be used to repair or examine a circuit. The functions of different equipment used within the circuit get presented with the help of a schematic diagram whose symbols generally include vertical and horizontal lines.
However, these lines are known to show the flow of the system rather than its wires. A represents the original and physical layout of electrical interconnections. Wiring on the picture with different symbols shows the exact location of equipment in the whole circuit.

Its components are shown by the pictorial to be easily identifiable. They are often photos attached with highly-detailed drawings or labels of the physical components. A person with a strong knowledge of electrical wiring diagrams can only understand a pictorial.
FRelmagrafik chefscuisiniersain fr. ITGF News.One of the most abused parts of Ex Military Land Rovers is often the wiring. As items not needed in civilian life such as blackout lights are removed, and AM radios are added, the wiring can become a nightmare, not helped by the original Lucas electrics! Until recently only some Series 3 Wiring Diagrams existed, however there were a number of versions, so in order to make things clearer, we have decided to add a page for Wiring Diagrams to REMLR.
This way we can also incorporate the addition to our archive of Series 2 Wiring Diagrams. Unfortunately we do not have copies of Command Recon or workshop vehicle wiring diagrams at this stage, but these following documents cover the 88' and ' GS vehicles.

Most series 3 wiring diagrams are in archive and available, however there appear to be at least three distinct wiring configurations.
Below are the documents. Series 3 Wiring Diagram - Version 1. Series 3 Wiring Diagram - Version 2. Before you get any further with these wiring diagrams a word of warning. The Perentie built vehicles in 4wd and 6wd guises have had four different wiring harnesses during their life.
One of many differences is barrel vs blade fuses for example. So every vehicle may not conform to a particular standard. The Bushranger built vehicles only had one harness which is different again to the perentie build vehicles.
