PostSubject: Got a beautiful 1982 hiace - but how does it work?   Thu Jun 15, 2017 1:38 pm

Hello guys,

I got myself a beautiful 1982 hiace recently that I will rebuild to a camper van. Unfortunately there wasn't an owners manual included (if anyone has one please contact me) and I have some questions about what button does what Smile.

There is a switch I can flick to the right of the steering wheel. I added a picture. Does anyone know what this does?

There is also a blue and green switch underneath where the radio used to be. Anyone have an idea?

I would like to install a new radio but I have no idea what wires I should be looking for. I tried to take a picture of all the loose wires I could find.

Kind regards and thanks!

Ooh - that's cute.
And old?

Which country are you in?
The radio connectors will probably be of that era Toyota (so you'll need to find an adapter of any Toyota of that era), or perhaps someone's hacked it to ISO connectors.

Switches look like fog lamps, may only work with headlamps on.

It looks really nice!

The switches don't seem original to me, but I can be wrong.

Does it have a "high beam" via the normal controls (like a modern car)?
Perhaps this is the way to fix it to high beam.
And check rear fog lights like GPW says.

As far as the radio wires, I'm not sure if you got everything on the picture.
Anyway, you could measure permanent contact to battery and the one switching on the key. If you can measure that with a multimeter, you can hook up a generic radio cable easily to get power.
Then you only have to follow the speaker wiring (which usually already has plus and minus in the coloring of the wires)
