TR2/3/3A 1960 TR3A turn signal harness


Freshman Member
I’m having a difficult time finding where the turn signal wiring exits from the steering column. He wiring is broken somewhere between the switch and the fuse. Any advice?

No answer here I am afraid, more to the point this is the wrong place to ask the question - this is for help with the forum itself.

If you repost in the Triumph thread (or a moderator will move it) you will muc more likely get the answer you need. Good luck!

Your question is where ​the wiring leaves the column? Down at the base of the steering box, forward of it. Makes for a long feed from the trafficator. But, That not be your question? Jim

If the trafficator turns with the wheel, then your stator tube is bad, and the break is likely within the steering column. Otherwise, the turn and horn wires exit the stator at the front of the steering gear and go forward to join the electrical harness in the left side inner fender. From there they run within the harness to the other side of the firewall at the turn solenoid. That should get you started with the trouble shooting...

Is it a new harness or the original one?
I had some confusion with my rewiring because the harness is made up to be common to LHD or RHD cars so there are a couple of wires that just run from the junction area by the horn on the left side to the horn on the right side. By labeling the wires and sketching it out I got it sorted out.
