Adding Hazard Flashers

A suitable position on the centre console


I prefer the pukka switches ...

... but they have round pins instead of flat spades

One of the multi-way sockets from an old 1980 harness has the right spacing when cut into a block of four and a block of two

Pins pushed out of the blocks ...

... a 2mm drill ...

... opens up the crimps ...

... and the old insulation and copper strands removed.

Blocks and pins ready for wires ...

... wire soldered over the inner conductor crimp ...

... and the outer crimp closed over the insulation.

After all that I found this from Autosparks which looks like it should fit, although subsequently heard of the same thing from Holden which is cheaper.

Connectors added to the other ends of the wires as required ...

... and taped with harness wrap.

The new sub-harness is fed through ...

... and the switch attached.

Connect up, turn on ...
