    Default Wiring harness, where to get it

    Hi,

    Instead of trying to figure out which modifications have been made to the front wiring harness in our DS23 I'm considering getting a new original one.

    Is there a company in Australia which sells the front wiring harness for a DS23?
    Or is it better (cheaper) to get it from overseas?

    All recommendations are welcome,

    Cheers,

    Wim

    Main wiring loom RHD 4 71

    The wing looms are quite basic, you could make your own (I did without prior knowledge), the original style connectors can be had - not a prefect copy but close. The service manual #814 has excellent RHD wiring diagrams the latest update now colour coded.

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    There are a few different harnesses that plug together. The main harness is behind the dash and pops out at either side to connect to the fuse box and the separate left and right front guard harnesses. The rear harness runs down the LHS and plugs in to the main harness behind the glovebox, where it's almost impossible to get at in late models. If it has EFI, there is another separate harness just for it. The main harness runs forward and down the LH of the engine bay to the battery/regulator/alternator area and other minor wires plug into it in that area. It can look rather messy and confusing in that area, particularly if it has the extra relays on the battery box for EFI and A/C. Which part of the wiring has been fiddled with?

    In later cars, the fuse for each of the inner lights is at the scuttle as an inline fuse holder plugged in where the front guard harnesses meet the main harness. The front guard harnesses earth to the body via a pigtail lead on each end of the front body crossmember. You will see them with the spare wheel removed and they are necessary of the lights will not work properly.

    Hi,

    Citroen Classics have a RHD main wiring harness for DS's after 4/71, which basically is a DS23.

    Wiring

    Its a good quality harness. The outer headlamp harness's and EFI harness are the same as LHD harness if you car is EFI, with the exception of the EFI main harness to the computer.

    best regards,

    Greg
