2a Floor dip switch
« on: August 27, 2012, 08:54:00 PM »
my dip switch now only has 2 settings low beam or flicker off no beam.

Is this an off the shelf landrover item or a Military special?

Not sure if this can be rebuilt or not.

Any advice appreciated

Cheers

Jamie

Cheers Juddy,

Must the placement not the switch itself that was different.

Will have a look at the usual suspects

My GS has it in the usual place ie to left of clutch pedal. Maybe it's just FFR's ( or even just yours) that is modified?

Odd!,

my S2 CR is left of clutch but 2A 109 and 2A 88 both in the middle, which I thought is the standard army modification.

Any other thoughts from anyone?

Hi Ed Stracker

The contacts within the switch are most likely dirty (amount of hb use ) try using/spraying a contact cleaner into the unit and operating without power on then when spray is everaped power up and retry

Both my 63 and 64 GS's have the dipswitch situated between the clutch and the brake. The repositioning could quite possibly have been an Army mod as I seem to remember somewhere in the instruction guidelines where drivers were instructed to place their left foot (when not in use for gear changing) flat on the floor and not rest it on the clutch. Having the dipswitch on the left would have, in the Army's point of view, been detrimental to this teaching. The Mk3 Inter had its dipswitch located in a similar position, between the pedals.

cheers Muddy,

tried that a few times, no luck.

New one should arrive in  the mail today along with a new solenoid as the starting is a bit hit and miss.
cheers,

Jamie

The Series 2 Comm?recon car did have the dimmer switch on the left of the clutch pedal
http://www.remlr.com/photos/pics2/dm88cr_P.jpg  in this picture you can see the hole for the dimmer switch, and as the S2 C/R was basically a civvie vehicle with a few military add on's, also the civvie S2A also had the switch in the same position, so basically what ZD has said is spot on, cheers Dennis :)
