Help-New turn signal assembly install
Hello all, I have a problem...
I have a 1981 Spider (Candadian Originally) and needed to replace the turn signal/wiper/headlight assembly due to a broken turn signal stalk and housing.
I ordered this new unit from Classic Alfa (Picture 1)
The colors of the wires on the new unit are for the most part completely different compared to the wiring diagram from Papajan. Only the Red, Yellow and Green wires on the headlight portion appear to be the same (Picture 2)
For the Headlight portion The Grey and Black/Grey wires that go to position 8 and 9 on the fuse box are instead Orange and Blue/Yellow on the new unit (Headlight portion of the assembly). (Picture 2)
On installation the Headlights and Taillights work fine...but I have no Wipers or Turn Signals
The colors for all the wires on the Wiper/Turn signal portion of the assembly are completely different, however, they all terminate at an 8-pin connector that only fits onto the harness in the car one way (see picture #3).
However, the new assembly has an additional set of wires on its own connector with 2 blue and 2 red wires, my old assembly did not have these wires, and I can see nowhere to attach them under the dash.
So after installation my Turn Signals and Wipers don't work, I had 2 thoughts:
1) The unit is bad (UNLIKELY)
2) The 8-pin connector is not wired correctly for my car and needs to be re-wired with a new 8-pin connector.
Does anyone have any insight? Unfortunately I wouldn't know where to start on re-wiring the 8-pin connector as the wiring colors are completely different.
Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this newer unit?
Any ideas on how to start troubleshooting this would be greatly appreciated.
