im having a hard time trying to figure out how to connect this harness https://www.eaton.com/content/dam/eaton/products/differentials-traction-control/elocker/Eaton-ELocker-Wiring-Harness-Labeled.pdf#page=1&zoom=auto,3,-251 to my spod (+) and (-).
should i connect the signal wire to the positive on the spod switch connector i want to use and run the circuit breaker wiring directly to the battery?


ideally, i would use the locker switch provided with the lockout function, but it doesnt fit in the spod, atleast without using a dremel to enlarge the opening.

Assuming the signal on the "signal circuit" is positive and not negative (check that first) just connect the "signal circuit" wire off the harness to a relay output on the spod.

thats exactly what i was thinking, connect the signal wire to one of the outputs on the spod. this is the wiring diagram of the circuit https://www.eaton.com/content/dam/eaton/products/differentials-traction-control/elocker/Eaton-ELocker-wiring-schematic.pdf



EDIT: it looks like switch #1 is connecting the ground and not the power to activate the circuit. can someone confirm that? i need to ground the signal wire?

It's a positive trigger voltage. Okay to connect the yellow signal wire directly to a spod output. You shouldn't need the fuse (the 12 volt ignition fuse... the other one you need) since the spod's output is probably fused already. Although, I would suggest dropping that fuse down to 5 or 10 amps. Spods are usually fused at 30 (or so) amps per circuit and you don't need that much to trigger a relay.


The supplied switch is a lighted one. The ground is for the LED.

gotcha. thanks for the help Bob!

got the lockers wired up to the spod on the farthest switches to the right today. now, im wondering what way i should go to lock out those switches. should i do a separate switch to disable the ground to those two switches, or go with these lockout switches?
