Whats it for Dash board FFR Land Rover

Recommended Posts

Having to start to strip the dash board to stop the rust I have been puzzled by what appears to be 2 holes for a jack, they are to the right of the light switch.

Can any one help with what they were for, they appear to be coloured for live and Neutral

Many thanks

As your Land Rover is an FFR variant the socket will be 24 volt so be careful what sat nav you use, alternatively you could wire in a voltage dropper to give 12v at the socket.  By the way,  I have  a  Land Rover  inspection light with plug, spare plug and Land Rover TUM, TUL and Ambulance handbook for sale. Pm me if you are interested.

The 24 volt alternator is disconnected, will try a test first to see what is coming through, will speak to my mechanic mate

The insulation between sockets has always just been a bit of glorified cardboard.  Most people fit a in-line fuse holder.

ISTR on a FFR  , the services are in fact 12 volt  ?

As the cigarette lighter plug is universal for all car accessories, have you thought of wiring in a hidden lighter socket, or are you going to make an adaptor from the 2 pin socket to a lighter socket?
