Rocker switch connections

Post by Doug G » Thu Apr 17, 2014 19:37

I have bought a rocker switch (when I bought the tie rod ends - another thread).

However they (catalogue online) did not show or state how the connections on the rear were set up.

So naturally, :lol: the switch has three round pole type connectors rather than the spade and blade type connectors.

Any suggestions how to make the connection?

I'm presuming you've got a later mini saloon type switch, in which case you'll need the moulded plastic plug that is specific to that switch. If snipped from a scrap wiring loom it will come with some wire attached, these you can fasten the spade connectors to
At least can add up

You can use small electrical connecter blocks with the screws if you split them down individualy and save looking for a loom plug. FF

Great idea if, as I think, you are referring to these:

Is there a wiring diagram for a non-electrical idjut like me to rewire the headlight switch i.e. OFF - DIP- FULL?

Blue/white = main beam. Blue/red = dipped
