High Rrsolution legible wiring diagrams

PostPost by: awatkins » Wed Jan 06, 2016 9:30 am

I scanned the factory S3 and S4 wiring diagrams at 600 dpi, cleaned them up for illegible characters and broken lines, and have posted the results here. The results is about 7K x 9K pixels. If you print this on 17 x 22 paper it is quite readable (lettering at about 8 points I'd guess).

You'll find a clear PDF made by Gareth Flanagan with colour codes here - http://www.lotuselan.net/forums/lotus-electrical-f38/wiring-diagram-t29157.html

Thanks for clearing up the factory diagram, the one in my manual is unusable.

I'll give a vote for Mario's wiring diagram (posted in thread below), which I think is among the best I've seen.

Mario's is great!

Could all of them go into the wiki?

Sure, that one's easy; it's all on one letter sized sheet. I added it to the original post.

I much prefer the way the S1-2 wiring diagram was laid out; the later ones with all the parallel lines are nearly impossible to follow in black&white and IMO are more of use to someone faying out a whole loom than trying to diagnose a fault or add an extra circuit.

They are there in the Wiki, but Jeff has said that the Wiki sometimes crashes the site, which is presumably why he has not made it public yet.

Bill -- When I said "they all" I was including the three I posted. Are you saying that all three factory drawings are already in the wiki but somehow not visible?
