Wiring the Jimny Roofrack LED Lightbars



If you don't have any wiring knowledge or experience, we recommend you get the assistance of someone who does, or work with an auto electrician. 

All joins should be soldered and sealed properly.

All wiring should be wired through a fused relay. 

We are not auto electricians, so if you have any further questions, please consult an expert. 

You have two options:

For NZ WOF compliance, you need these to be wired to high beam, with a switch on your dash so that you can use high beam with or without the top lights. For this, you need this loom, this switch and this piggyback adaptor (all included with our latest roofracks).


Installing the wiring loom

The loom includes a round dime switch, which you can choose to either use, or replace with the provided Jimny dash switch. Installing your dash switch will require some joining (soldering), here is the diagram for the wiring of the dash switch...

Once your dash switch is connected to your loom, the loom runs from your power source (battery or another 12v point), to your dash and up to your lights on the roof. On the roof, the plugs on the top of your loom need to be cut off and just needs to be joined and soldered to the wiring on the lights. 

Part of the loom runs to the front of the engine bay and wires into the front right headlight piggyback adaptor (also included with our latest roofrack).

Running the wiring

You don't need to drill any holes in the roof of your Jimny to install the wiring. The easiest way is to run the wire off the side of the roof, around the door jam and tuck into the interior lining, then down the A-pillar to the dash. This can be done on either side of the car, drivers side or passengers side.

Alternatively, you can run the wiring up the side of the windscreen. The awesome new Wiring Concealer makes this an easier/tidier job.

The lights are 50w each.

This video from Off Tap Touring is really helpful to show how the wiring loom is wired up. 

Wiring up the dash switch

This is fairly straightforward, again, as long as you can solder the connections.

Please ensure switches are always wired through a fused relay.
