Recommended Posts

Hi all

Hi Richard

You are quite correct in saying the purple wire is live. This live wire has 3 functions. It carries power from the fusebox that feeds the glovebox light , then feeds the interior light (which you have sent a pic of the wiring required) and then ends up feeding the boot light itself.

The purple and white wire goes to both door switches ( evidently with a double connector somewhere) so when the doors are opened the interior light comes on.

The black wire is a common earth.
