Hola,

Buena noches.

Most of the colours you have are not head light leveling. See the diagram below.

Estoy en Pinoso.

Gracias  :proud:

They are very odd colours to go to a Headlamp switch in a Mini (or indeed any car following Lucas conventions)

 

Normally:

 

Brown - permanent live

White - Ignition live

White/Red - Switched starter motor trigger

Green - fused accessory live

Yellow - not sure!

 

I would suggest the plug you have been given, although the right type for the switch, has actually been cut from elsewhere on the loom and should connect to the ignition barrel.

Hi,

That's a plug from a metro heater fan switch!

You'll need to look in the mpi workshop manual to find out which position the wires go into the socket so you can wire it up to the colours you have.

Cheers  :proud:

I’d agree - those wire colour would never go to a heater fan switch in BL/Rover car.

Again, it’s an ignition switch plug. Page 8:
