Mk3 Capri Radio Fader switch wireing diagram

Post by Skids » Mon Feb 08, 2016 8:05 pm

Hi looking for a wiring diagram or picture of a wired up Fader Switch as fitted to a 1984 2.0S ,there are obviously 4 wires from stereo as inputs to the switch but which terminals do they connect to as a previous owner has bypassed the switch and wired it directly to rear speakers only ,want to put it back to standard and utilise the front speakers that are also fitted .
Any guidance appreciated
Thanks

The switch has colour coded labels that marry up to the colour of the cables so if any of the original wiring is there that should be a starting point.

EDIT
Does this help any

Hi There,

I recently up-graded my Stereo and I wired out the Fader too, as the new Head can handle this it's self. But, I took care to make a drawing of the wiring, just in case I go back to standard. I've just drawn it out again, as it was quite small on the back of the Instructions for the new one. But, as Peter says, if you have your old wiring still there, it is just a matter of match the colours, but here's my drawing anyway, might help a bit more???

If you imagine the Lower Section in the drawing, 3 wires to the front and the other 3 Wires to the rear, same for the Upper section... The Feed from the Radio head is Central to each front & rear....

Well, like I say. Hope this helps, cheers for now,

John...

Peter John
Thanks for your replies and information ,makes things much clearer , I have also found a wiring diagram on the Capri Power Forum if you do a search under radio Fader wiring .I can look forward tonight to reattaching and crimping the mini terminal connectors and hopefully get a sound out of all 4 speakers again .
Thanks again for your assistance
Mark

I've never really understood why people bypass the fader in the first place. I put a new stereo in and left the fader and it still works a treat.

All fully sorted,working and back to standard set up ,it didn't help that whoever had the doors off when it was painted just cut the speaker wires made no attempt to take them out properly and hadn't bothered to wire them back up again ,but it's good to successfully solve a fault .Thanks for the help guys .
