Help required on electrics

Postby seriesmm_1 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 8:58 pm

Hi All
I am rewiring my '52 series mm & have been going quite well as I labelled up all the old loom & transferred these to the new loom.
At the moment I have one snag, the 2 components in the photo attached the one which has a label on it is labelled side & tail lamp warning light & according to the circuit diagram on page N26 in the workshop manual comes from S1 on the main light switch with cable no41 (red) - great but where does it fit in the dash?
The other item I have a problem with as its not shown on the circuit diagram & so I'm at a loss as to where it fits & also where it is connected & what warning its giving. The tag on this item has gone astray (sods law) but its does have a bullet connector at one end.
Any help will be gratefully accepted.

I am not familiar with that vintage of Minor, mine being later, but I am sure I have seen these fittings within the dash panel providing instrument illumination. May be a clue.

The side/tail warning lamp (green in colour?) fits in the board behind the chrome grille on the dash centre piece. I believe it fits near the bottom, above the ignition switch. The other lamp is probably the main-beam warning light (red in colour? Fitted to later series MMs only. Depending on the age of your manual/wiring diagram it won't be shown). You should find another cut-out in the board behind the chrome dash grille to house it.

Heres a pic from Stevies car resto, Im fairly certain they slide in bedind the starter and choke before you tighten them up.

As Palacebear says, red light is the main beam warning light and green shines down above your key.
