#1 Help with the indicator switch

Post by ChrisCtype » Tue Sep 14, 2021 1:15 pm

My car did not come with an indicator/horn switch so I purchased one from Martin Robey, now I believe I have traced and worked out the wiring but I'm sure some on can answer my question below ref the black cable.

This is how I have wired the switch
Switch ......................... loom......................part/item

Black (long wire)...................... Black.................... horn
Purple (long wire)..................... purple................... horn
Horn works

Blue/White............................ Blue/white..................headlight flash
Brown.............................Purple....................headlight flash

Green/blue........................Black/Red..................LH indicator warning light
Green Yellow......................Black/white................RH indicator warning light

Green/red.......................Green/red....................LH indicator circuit
Green/white....................Green/white.................RH indicator circuit

Light Green/brown.............Light green/Brown

Black............................ Green (so this connection is my concern)

So my issue is the last connection black on the switch in my mind indicates an earth but green in the loom is a 12v feed, is this correct?

hopefully someone can confirm
