    Hi
    Can someone tell me what colour is the live wire for the reversing lights on a D2 td5.
    I want to wire a reversing camera into the live feed but instead of individual wires to separate bulbs i have a multiplug and a sort of circuit board that all the bulbs fit into.
    Also I need to know what colour the front fog lights live is, previous owner changed to a winch bumper and i cannot find any "spare" wires anywhere to refit fog lights.
    Thank you
    Bill

    Do you have a DMM ? Should be easy to figure out.
    Is it live and earthed when put in reverse, or switched live? I don’t know but 5 mins probing would sort that.

    Every Land Rover owner has 1:)
    If I had thought about it a bit I wouldn’t have said switched earth;)

    @mystery has plenty and they are always useful :)
