headlamp relay

PostPost by: spridget » Thu Jan 31, 2013 12:15 pm

Bonjour

I need your knowledge !

I haven?t notice how the headlamp relay (the under dash one) is connected when dismantling.
So I have 3 wires :
- a blue one (U). It goes on the light switch
- a brown /blue (NU)
- a brown /purple (NP)

and on the relay, a classic 6RA : the connectors :C1, C2 W1 W2.
- According the wiring diagram, there is a bridge ( blue/white (UW) ) between 2 pods

Who can help me ?

Thanks !
Franck

George had an issue with a new srb111 relay back in March of last year and this is my email to him. I guess it worked for him and there was no smoke.

Gary

"I found a diagram of the relay and the S1 ? S2 diagram, it looks like W1 and W2 get swapped and then it may (maybe, might, could. etc) work. So swap Yellow blue (YU) wire onto W2 of the relay and jump W1 to C2 on the relay as in the inset relay diagram of the attachment. Let me know how much smoke you let out?

Gary

p.s. - I have only had my first coffee so re read this two or three times before you try to make smoke. let me know (smile)"

Thanks Gary
Well you surely have had another coffee now :wink: !
So I assume you mean I have to connect the U wire on C2 terminal, the NU on C1, NP on W2 and a jump from W1 to C2 ?
Thanks

4:03 am is the time stamp on the picture, last March 18th, I have not looked at it since. I thought it may be of help. You didn't state the use what the intended purpose was so I gave you the diagrams and figured you could take it from there. Here is the updated one for an S1 or S2 with color codes.
