Default Jaguar S Type wiring

I have a friend in Gibralter whom I sent a UK made towbar
and wiring kit with special Jag relay to.
He now asks if I have the wiring codes(car loom)
for it.
Well I dont even know what a towbar fits like.
Can anybody help otherwise I have talked him into wasting a considerable
amount of money with the cost of the kit and delivery. (58.00)
delivery to Gib.
TIA

Default Jaguar S Type wiring

Hi Jacky,

If your friend is considering wiring the 'S' type himself, I would hope he
is capable of identifying the circuits with test equipment. It is not a
vehicle to be messed with and using a test lamp is highly likely to upset
the onboard computer. It may well cause damage.

I take no responsibility for the information here, or for what your friend
does with it but to give him a start the info I have is......
Left Indicator..........Black/yellow.
Left Sidelight...........Black/white
Right Indicator........Black/blue
Right Sidelight.........Black/orange
Brake Light.............Black/orange
Fog Light.................Black/yellow
Reverse...................Green.

The best of luck to him........

Regards

Are you sure? Seems odd because Left Indicator and Fog Light are the same as
each other in your list, as are the Right sidelight and Brake light.

If this IS correct, it sounds like a recipe for disaster!

Hi Roger,

The days of the simple wiring loom are gone. Until fairly recently, most
vehicles used different coloured wires for different purposes. Now, it seems
anything goes. The lights on the Citroen C5 are virtually all white, the
BMW has black/yellow for high level brake light (the same as the airbags),
Vauxhalls have black/yellow for brake lights (often not powered up) and this
is the same as other wires in the same part of the loom doing different
jobs. Currently, I have around 5 different wiring codes for Peugeot 406's
and 7 for Galaxy/Sharan's.

This is why I accept no responsibility! Colours can change at any time and
the information given is only a guide.

Regards
