    Morette Wiring / Plug in Adapter

    I've found some good directions on wiring morettes w/o the adapter, but it requires splicing the factory wires, and i'd prefer not to do that.


    Can anyone tell me where I can buy JUST the adapters? I'd like to wire those, then just plug in to the stock setup.


    For the record, I've included the directions I've found below for wiring the "non-adapter" morettes.

    Driver side-
    common positive = red/light blue (center terminal on connector)
    low beam switched ground = yellow/red
    high beam switched ground = red

    Passenger side-
    common positive = light blue/white
    low beam switched ground = yellow/red
    high beam switched ground = red


    The wiring on the Morettes-

    Common = gray
    Low beam = yellow
    High beam = blue

    Both sides on the Morettes are the same colors. The gray common should be connected, through the harness adapter, to the common positive for each side. The low and high beam wires should go to their respective switched grounds

    you can make your own ghetto adapters with spade terminals if you cant locate any.

    tell me more about "ghetto adapters"

    i'm a relative novice with wiring. i was planning on splicing w/ butt connectors, but i'd obviously prefer to preserve the stock wiring and adapter should i ever need to sell.

    well dR,

    Im guessing the morrettes you have come with a socket for the bulb with pig tails (loose wires) coming off, correct? If so, you just solder some wire and spade terminals on there and plug into the harness in the following way-

    Driverside-
    Morette side plug into Factory harness side
    grey plug into red/light blue
    yellow plug into yellow/red
    blue plug into red


    Pass Side-
    Morette side plug into Factory harness side
    grey Plug into Light blue/white
    yellow plug into yellow/red
    blue plug into red



    Any more ????'s feel free to ask-

    When referring to a wire as Light blue/white, the second color refers to the "tracer" or the stripe on the wire. So a lightblue/white is really just a light blue wire with a white stripe running down the length of the wire.

    patience my friend

    a good bit of the project is already documented. i've got a good bit done.

    the goal is to NOT have to splice my factory wiring. just plug in and turn on the suckers. after today's tests, it looks promising.
