NEEDED: lamp control harness wiring ID and yellow harness ID

Post by CIK7 »

The yellow harness has never been hooked up. Online fusebox ID says it MIGHT be for trailer wiring hookup. Hookup in the back or front? The red and black are power and ground. What are the others for?
I want to delete the LampControl relay so I can wire the rear lights straight to the front for hookup with my car. I see color codes on the gray plastic but need clarification. What's each of these for? Can someone please provide a label for each wire?

That’s not for lamp control, it’s for lamp bulb failure detection.

A trailer lamp controller will cost about $60-80 from etrailer or similar

Are you sure? It says 'LAMP CONTROL' right on the front (refer to picture). And I think I have one of those trailer light controllers.

I thought you were kidding. The 'low fuel' light turns on. Is there a joke in that somewhere?

Keep in mind the Volvo, Bosch, and Hella people are not native English speakers and the translations to English are mushy.

You got that right. Russian to English is even worse. Another update possibly coming today.
