Convoy Lights.
« on: April 26, 2013, 10:46:35 PM »
Not sure what convoy lights come on in what position .
 I got a 1983 HJ47Landcruiser [ Arnt i Lucky]   The lights fitted are 2 on the front  with slits 2 on the back with stop/tail and one facing the diff center. The convoy light switch has 3 positions.
 1  Normal
 2 Blackout
 3 Reduced
 Any help would be good as the wires have been cut at the switch.

I don't know if we have the Toyota wiring diagrammes but the 1984 SIII Land Rover one may give you an idea about the wiring on yours.

If you ever decide to get a number 5 trailer for your Toyota, cookie has a 6 stud axle on one of his No 5s.

Unfortunately I dont think we have any more than a landcruiser user namual (Factory one), but the series 3 wiring will give you na indication as they are basically the same age, and in use at the same time.  Blackout light turned on the convoy lights, and every other light, including brake lights, off.

I had a play with it today and found that in blackout it runs both rear blackout tail lights and the diff light and one front blackout light [Blue wire]  It also runs the blackout stop lights [White wire]through a second stoplight swich mounted beside the orinigal one.  In Reduced position it runs all the above plus the second front blackout [Yellow wire]. It also has a permernent power wire [ Black] running to the rear, not sure what that is for yet.
