    Icon5 Rewire CX

    Has anyone rewired a 1984-85 2500 GTi with older style dash that has the temp gauge not the clock. Mine has a digital clock next to the ignition switch. Instructions & pics needed. Thankyou.

    Just a quick note to you Peter- clock/no clock on the croissant won't matter. You got what part of it working- the lights and horn? Are the wipers and turn signals not working? I know you found a mech who is trying to suss his way through it. I feel for him- difficult at best, especially when Citroen is not your native tongue.

    Still at garage. Think we are getting there. So many wires going everwhere. What does the F mean when in front of the color -eg Fn or FGr. Thanks Hotrodelectric

    The loose English translation is "flying lead". IOW, a single wire that is a breakout from the harness, or a loose, non-harnessed short wire connecting two points.

    Guys, please...... If you are going to offer a translation, at least make sure it is correct and not a figment of your imagination:

    Fn means Fil Noir ie Black Wire as Hotrod mentioned. A Feuille Noire would be a black leaf
    Fgr means Fil Gris ie a Grey Wire . A Feuille Grise would be a grey leaf but also a grey sheet of paper.
    And a feuille being of the feminine gender, the adjective- the colour- would carry an additional e at the end.

    Bonsoir

    I beg your pardon for being imaginative! But I do think that the idea was conveyed!
    Also the manual specifically says that an F followed by a colour Gr. V. Bc. etc. denotes a wire and the colour of that wire. A colour listed near the termination of a wire denotes the colour of the sleeve fitted to that terminal.
    Refer to page 320 of the Series 1 CX manual 818-1 for the specifics!

    It's refreshing to hear guys who love their cars. I did not have a clue about the French meanings until you guys started the discussion, so thankyou. Peterbuc

    I recently had all relays and fuses cut out and replaced with new modern stuff, as per an earlier post with pictures. I gave the auto electrician the wiring diagrams. I believe this assisted him, but after it was all eventually done he told me if anyone asks "tell them double the price!".

    My intermittent wiper only worked intermittently (i.e. when it forgot it wasn't supposed to be working and accidently worked). Now it never works. At least I now have certainty.
