honestly, if you do not want to diy, go GTC. Plug and play problem solved.

Er, yeah, precisely! It's hardly an extortionate amount and it takes 5 minutes to fit.

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has been able to locate a source for the connectors? Enabling individuals to make a plug-in harness?

Thanks.

Brought 8 x 1N4001 and 2 x 180ohm 2W resistors, some shrink wrap, some used speaker cables from my local stereo guy, borrowed a soldering iron and even solder from my friend and just like magic, managed to build the harness.

NOTE: I'VE NEVER SOLDERED IN MY LIFE! ALSO I CAN ONLY DO THE SIMPLEST DIY'S LIKE CHANGING A LIGHT BULB.

CAUTION: IF YOU DO DECIDE TO DO IT, MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT IN A RUSH AND DOUBLE CHECK EVERYTHING. I TOOK MY SWEET TIME AND DOUBLE CHECKED WITH PEOPLE THAT KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT ELECTRICAL WIRING.

I followed the last diagram posted by Protegimus and prepared the wiring harness in the office before going to the car to connect up to the loom. For us idiots in electronics, make sure that you have the diodes facing the correct way.

Ossie cossie, Protegimus and all those that contribute to the DIY You guys are champs!!!

Cost me like $2.50GBP in materials, a little time (actually 7 days ) and some courage. Cutting those 2 cables I had to hold my breath.

Skills needed:

1. Can splice a cable - Practice with some spare speaker cable if you need.
2. Can read the diagram posted
3. Can do a little soldering (youtube is very useful for this )

To disassemble the rear I followed this link:

Hooking up the DIY harness I used tape instead of soldering as I do not have power points in my underground car park. I just twisted the wires together and taped them tightly together. (you get a sore back working on the rear)

would be nice to have the connectors. I did ask the electronics store where I picked up the materials, but they needed some p/n so no luck for me.

Just read through this, do all the kits on the market light up all 4(5) rear lights when the brake is pressed with no sidelights on? With the outside dimmer than the inside?

Anyone able to confirm what connectors are required? Possible source? Enabling us to make a plug 'n' play harness?

Great thread with lots of good info.

.....just did mine, got the parts from Maplin's and took me about 2hrs total to do the job from start to finish.

Total cost was £2.64 !!

Very happy.

Did u make a plug-in / removal cable? If so do you have the plug / socket part details from Maplin?

I think you may have the diodes round the wrong way.

Check with a tester.

Current must flow to the light unit not back, assuming you made your own as I did.

Hope that helps.

Resistor Wattage

Attachment 6293

Bit of advice during installation - the plugs undo easily once the retainer is unclipped, press down on the central retainer with a small (4mm) flat blade screwdriver then pull the harness out:
Attachment 6289

Standard connector pinout - I used 1N4001 diodes. The feed from the brake lights to the tails lights (diodes A & B for four brake lights with sidelights off, which is optional) is already spliced:
Attachment 6290

Now the brake light feed is cut ready to splice in the 180ohm metal film resistor and diodes C & D:
Attachment 6292
Heat shrink insulates and supports the soldered in components - it is only a few pence and much better than insulation tape. Cut to length and borrow your Mrs. hairdryer to shrink:
Attachment 6291

Protegimus
Thanks. Very useful post. What should be the wattage for the resistor?

180ohm 0.6W metal film resistor is fine.

Anyone been able to confirm (Part numbers) or source the Rear light loom connectors?

Looking to make a plug'n'play connector with the ability to revert to standard configuration if desired.

Thanks.
