Installing LED light bar

Post by BlackPearl » Sun Jun 21, 2020 4:09 pm

Hi there,
I have a 2012 J10 Nissan Dualis Ti-L Series 3 (Aus) and recently purchased a Hella 470 combination LED light bar. Now I'm looking for a suitable wiring harness and high beam piggy back adaptor. My model has LED headlamps factory. Is anybody aware of any reputable brands or what other makes and models fit the Dualis (aka QashQai)?

Cheers

BlackPearl, firstly welcome to you from AU to the UK Forum. Now I can see what you are after and it appears it is to see those Jumping Animals you have in AU 😂. I have seen these installed on your very long “Road Trains” and I would think they do the Job well.
Now I am no Electrician but there are some on board that could possibly help. I have added some attachments just so it is known what these Light Bars are. As a suggestion would it not help you to contact a AU based Co. for assistance or even a friendly Nissan Dealer if not on the other side of AU, then at least it is home based. I hope you get your problem solved - Dave 😉

Welcome to this forum.

It's only a few wires isn't it? Couldn't you just simply use wires...

(Not sure what 85 to 31 is - earth?)

Thanks guys. Yeah on my second bumper now after clipping Skippy one night. I got factory LED headlights but can never have enough light. I don't know about going full road train spec -- I'm not thrilled on carving up my bumper to fit a nudge bar or something haha. :D

Here's a wiring diagram I scanned from the instruction booklet (inverted).

I think I've worked most of it out. This diagram shows how it uses 2 switches to control spread beam and spot beam independently, and then I only need to setup the trigger off the high beam but that's what I need to figure out. I'm not a fan of splicing into the factory harness and would like to find a suitable piggyback adaptor.

Part number for my unit is 958 130-431 (1599HD).

Could anyone take a photo of the plug (LED type) and/or know if a Navara kit would work?

J10 wiring diagram of the headlamps would be helpful. I need to know if the lights are positive or negative switched, or what other off the shelf units I can use. Gets messy when you start talking about negative switching and CANBus .
