Where should these wires go? Currently going no where!

Unread post by skid65 » December 26th, 2016, 8:22 pm

When I was climbing under my d22 today I noticed 3 plugs that had wires just hanging off the gearbox; the wires where just dangling in mid air doing nothing. I know they are on the transmission/transfer case for a reason, I don't have a 4wd light on the dash when I engage 4wd, so was thinking maybe one of them was for that. But I can't figure out what they are for or where they go. Any advice appreciated.

"You don't have a 4wd light on the dash"

Does that mean there is no 4wd light fitted on the dash OR it has one but it doesn't work?

Just from the pictures it seems someone has cut wires off. I suspect the other ends of those plugs, ie the upper ends, have wires and go to switches on the box or transfer case.

By placing a meter on OHMS or a powered test light you should be able to activate functions and see if there is connections to other wires or gearbox case, if one or more is used for earthing a dash indicator light.
That might then give a clue as to what does what.
