Td5 clock wiring- purple wire


Well-known member
I removed the Td5 clock from my dash and want to use the wiring to illuminate my center pod. The clock had 3 wires- red, black and purple with brown.

I am assuming that red is power, black negative and purple constant 12v so the clock wouldn't lose time.

For illuminating the VDO gauges I am planning to use the red and black. Am I correct that I can not use the purple?

Purple - constant power.
Black - negative
Red - Light

I would upload the wiring manual, but the forum only allow VERY small files.
