|I added a panel between the steering column and the centre dashboard. On this panel I mounted a rev counter, voltmeter, oil pressure / water temp meter, vacuum gauge, two switches for the wipers and fan, two indicator idiot lights, and a hooter button. Also a couple of spare switches and an idiot light for the immobiliser. The rev counter and voltmeter are from a Citroen GS1220.|
The fuse box is mounted under the dashboard. This is a
six position blade fuse holder from Tonnesens.
The fuses are, left to right, HOT unswitched (V+), HOT ignition switched (Vign), spotlights, brights, dims, parks. (The spotlights are wired for-but-not-with).
The starter button goes to a relay on the other side. You can see the bolts holding the relay, above the red & yellow knobs, almost in the shadow of the gear lever. Also, between the gear lever and the shadow, next to the second curl from the top, you can see a bit of the DPDT switch that switches on the hazards.
Picture with the dash open. The terminal blocks neaten things up a lot.
If I rewire another Land-Rover I'll do it just like this one
Do not be tempted to use "chocolate block" connectors, they fail after a short while in automotive applications.
Note the four relays in the back left corner. I wired the ignition switch through a relay, these switches were marginal when new and difficult to replace.
