Today I was going to quickly replace the cigarette lighter after it broke using it as a plug for an aircompressor.
So first thing I bought a standard replacement lighter, then dashboard off.

Of course it would not fit the landcruiser plug, so a bit of adjusting.

Strange wires... What could this plug be for, it is part of the wiring harness??? (the green one just takes current off the plug and is connected to nothing)

More funny wires...

The red one goes to the Stop Fuse. The black one connects to the lilac which are mass. The grey one goes into the engine bay and connects to both indicators. What is that all about?? The other wires connect to nothing. There is also another wire connected to the grey one in the engine bay, which connects to this??

Of course some of the wires went under the carpet. As I lifted it I noticed it was damp in the drivers footwell. Well while I am at it and I wanted to take the carpet out any how...

Aaah, the problem with the two non removable screws at the back seats... Before

A couple of drill bits later...

And after more drill bits and a bit of Dremel for the other screw

The cable in the passenger footwell connected to a box under the seat. It's got two plugs. One looks like an antenna wire. What's the box for?

The carpet is really dirty and stinks. I am going to pressure wash it and see how it turns out. Any other ideas for a carpet replacement? I wonder if I maybe just leave the capet out, which makes it much easier to clean when muddy.
Or where could I get a cheap carpet?

So, anybody any ideas for the wiring at the indicators and what this black sensor is?

I cant believe I just wanted to replace the cigarette lighter and ended up to take the whole interior apart :D

Hi Gilbert, I beleive the box was part of the central locking/alarm system, it sounds like it has been removed at some time judging by the amount of cut wires.

So the black thing in the engine bay could be the alarm horn and the alarm was also connected to the indicators. Well, I'll take it I just rip all the stuff out.

That's the wires under the passenger seat
