Re: 710K map-reading lamps

And I believe the light in question is #67 and switch #73.

Re: 710K map-reading lamps

Without looking, I believe it grounds directly to the body with the mounting screws. I can check tomorrow. A simple, step one check is to remove the lens and bulb. turn on the light, and check voltage between the single bulb power feed and another area on the body to provide ground. if you have volt...

Re: 710K map-reading lamps

If I am understanding you correctly, your description narrows the problem down to the rear blue light only. The relay and switches are fine. Troubleshoot the power to that rear blue light with a voltmeter to find the break. In my experience it almost always a grounding problem at the light.

Re: Pinzgauer shock rebound vs compression

I put Doetsch shocks on a couple years ago and they certainly made a big difference. Easy install. I purchased mine from EI and the sleeve issue had been corrected. Unfortunately, I don't see them on their site on my quick search. It might be worth a call.

Re: Pinzgauer Radio Parts

A bit off topic but I have a question about the shelf support in your first couple of photos. I am reassembling my shelves and I had noticed two small holes in the support and wondered their purpose. In your photo there seems to be a clamp of some type at the location of those holes. I do not see th...

Re: Pinzgauer Rescue

Looks great! I wish I could complete my "projects" as quickly as you. How does one order from Pinz-Tec. Certainly I use our sponsors but many things are not available.

Re: Donate and get your PINZGAUER GOODIES here!

I understand it's probably low volume but as a 710k owner i feel left out.

I guess I have been spoiled. My parts book and manuals all have German, French and English. I really appreciate you posting your information.

Parts book help

I am reinstalling the shelves in my 1975 710 k. The previous owner had removed them so I don't have the experience of removal to help. For some reason, my parts book skips sections 31-15 and 31-20 that I need. Certainly I can find the diagrams on line at SAV or EI but I would like the parts descript...

Welcome to the forum! It is good to see another owner east of the Mississippi. There is lots of good information on here and mostly friendly Pinz owners to offer help. Search is your friend.

Re: headlight relay

Thanks Paul, I will look again but I was pretty sure it was solid brown. The brown and white, according to the schematics, goes to/from the 31b on the relay to the high beam switc.. My dangling brown wire does come from that group of wires so I will check the connectors. It makes sense that it plugs...

Re: headlight relay

Well I just could not let this go tonight so I decided to get the voltmeter out and do some late night testing. As it turns out, the dangling brown wire appears to be just a ground for the high beam switch. Or, at least grounding it gives voltage and the relay cycles giving high and low beams. This ...

Re: headlight relay

I'm dredging up this old post as I am having trouble figuring out my loss of high beams, right and left. No click from the relay when signal lever is activated so I suspected a bad relay. However, in reading this post, there is a comment that a brown wire from the steering column is the high beam sw...
