Title: Pinout colours for 2021 i30 LHS fog/driving light connector
Post by: APJ on October 12, 2021, 03:09:34
Hi,
Long story short.. I picked up a pranged 2021 i30 this week for a bargain... fixing it as we speak!
( and don't ask about replacement grille's - they simply don't exist! )

The bumper was broke..  and the lower passenger (RHD) fog/driving light got smashed/missing..
Got another to suit!.. but the connector on the harness is missing, leaving just the 6 bare wires (no connector)
Easy to fix, but have found that the colour of the wires on the RHS connector are different to the LHS harness !!
So I can't just follow the same colour to pin assignments off the RHS connector/harness.. grr
Q: anyone know the colour to pin assignments for this beast?
    or  anyone got a 2021 i30 they can check their connector?
I just need to know what colour wire goes to what pin on this 6 pin connector so I can attach each to replacement connector.  Can't seem to find a workshop manual for 2021 (which has these lights)
a photo of such would do.. 
any takers...
thanks
AJ

Hi, AJ.

If you get no joy in the replies, try doing a comparison signal trace with the other side.
It shouldn't be too hard a job to identify the function of each wire regardless of colour since the behaviour is meant to be identical.
A cheap test lamp probe or multimeter should do it.

Hi, thanks for the reply..
Did think of that, however.. 6 wires? 
Not sure why 6 wires.. I was expecting just 2 wires eh!..  (gone are the days of on/off)
possibly the 2021 i30 .. the light does some extra obscure things under certain conditions?
was thinking I might not get signal from all 6 wires till then, and might be hard to replicate..
if I can't get hold of colours I'll have to suss as per your suggestion..
just didn't want to wing it..
thanks
AJ

Does your lamp assembly include a DRL? If so, that might account for 2 of the 'surplus' wires - you could test this with a multimeter.

Additionally (not knowing the spec of your 2021 vehicle) if it does include a DRL does that DRL double-up as an indicator, or do you have a separate indication system.

If no further advice appears, in terms of discovering the pinout colour matching, might be worth visiting a wreckers and ask to have a look.

Thanks will do..
no 2021 units at wreckers!.. tried em all...
might be able to check one out at a dealer?
they might not like me messing with a new car but..

( vehicle is actually dated Nov 2020 on VIN.. but all the part numbers of Grille and lights etc are 2021 parts!!
....2020 parts don't match/fit )

was hoping an owner/member could check theirs  eh..

Are the DRLs built in? Do they double-up as indicators?

Hi,
I'll plug the battery back in and check tonight..

Hi,
Yep.. the indicator is built into this baby..
I eventually got the multimeter out..
Was able to determine 4 out of 6 wires from voltage activation of certain functions.
luckily, the other 2 wires had certain unique characteristics.. (like jumping to 5v when starting the motor.. or putting the handbrake on/off ??)
anyway, I simply matched the characteristics between L & R harnesses, to match wires and note the respective pin and wire colour.
All Working..
have attached some images below..   in case it helps someone else down the track..
hope the chicken scratchings are clear.
thanks for the help
AJ
