I have several parts lying around, tons of whelen edge halogens and frames and a code 3 TA controller. How does the TA controller work do I put the negatives in the harness and hot wire from lights go to a constant hot? Just got to thinking about it and figured I'd ask some folks here.


Thanks inadvance Andrew

The one you have pictured in your for sale ad by that MX7000 is a Basic ArrowStik controller (PN 7410). There should be a wiring diagram sticker stuck to the bottom of it:

You are correct in your understanding of how the controller works. Regardless, here is a summary off the top of my head.


Hook the black wire that comes out the back of the controller to a good ground. The 7-pin green plug takes the brown, orange, violet, yellow, and blue wires (positions 1 through 5) and connects them to ground to complete the circuit and light the lights. Position 6 isn't used for anything important, see the manual for details on its real use. Position 7 takes a wire that supplies the controller +12v DC. Don't forget to connect the red and red/white wires of the ArrowStik to a constant +12v DC source.
