Military Light Switch

Hi Everyone,

I am in the process of restoring a 1984 military 110 and I am
converting several items to civilian spec. I would like to remove the
center military / convoy switch and put it over to the regular light
switch. Has anyone ever attempted such a switch over? Is the military
harness much different than the civilian harness? Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!

Depends on whether you want to remain original. The lightweight I
recently restored benefitted from a new loom, but I left the military
wiring switch in place.

With the the military switch, all you have to do is plug the wires in
the back, while the conversion will require considerable
headscratching to make sure the correct are energised at the right
time.

Military switches also cause much amusement to MOT testers, especially
when they switch it to convoy mode after testing the headlights, and
then notice that there are no brake lights, but a single white light
from the white plate on the rear diff!

Re: Military Light Switch

Thanks very much Simon for your reply. When you say plug the wires on
the back do you mean to jump the wires within the plug - bypassing the
switch?

I usually am really particular about keeping things stock but a
Defender is a really rare vehicle in Canada and I am looking forward to
dressing it up a little bit for farm and road.

Thanks again.

Just plug the original wires back onto their original position. I
initially tried to bypass the switch and nothing worked......
