Defender Td5 1999my Wiring Diagram Error
The wiring diagram for the Defender Td5 (1999 model year) has an error in the Instrumentation section. All the lights in the Instrument Pack (J100) are shown as being connected to ground on one side, which is incorrect. On page 47.2, the bottom section of the pack should be connected to switched 12V on one side, as the ECU operates on a 'switched earth' basis, providing an earth path for the bulb, not providing 12v.
The corrected version of this page is shown below. Click for a much larger, clearer version.

Please bear in mind that this is NOT an official Land Rover addendum, it is my opinion from trying the printed wiring method during my Td5 conversion that that diagram is incorrect, and the correct version should be that as given below, which also now agrees with the rest of the wiring diagram.
