500 DRL bulb holder rewire

Just bought a 09 500 for my daughter and noticed the DRL,s were turned off. On turning on neither worked. Changed one no problem the bulb had blown. The other one on inspection I discovered that two of the three wires (black and orange) were broken. I have ordered a new holder from eBay but have noticed it has different coloured wires pre wired into it. Original fiat colours are black,grey and orange but wires on holder are orange/red...grey/black ...green/yellow. Do any of you clever people know which wire on the car go to which wire on the holder. Thank you very much.

Re: 500 DRL bulb holder rewire

Does the side light work on the bust side? Or neither on that side, can you not simply rewire the holder extending the original wires assuming not snapped off right at the holder? Even then I bet you could fix it and re seal the back. Are the two covers still there? The ones in the inner wing guards often they fall off mine are cable tied in place?

Re: 500 DRL bulb holder rewire

Thank you for your reply. Both wires have broken right next to the holder. The black one leaving the spade connector in the holder the orange one still has the connector attached but cannot be reinserted in the holder. So there is no flex coming from the holder...

If you donít work it out I can let you have a bulb holder with wires that you can join. I have several DRLs that have broken lugs but I donít have the lugs so they are ideal for spares.
