    Question Terminals 50 and 15: where are they?

    Hi mates, this is my first post and I write from Italy, so I apologize for my english
    Anyway, I've to fit a Waeco's DRL module on my Astra (year 2000).
    There's a wire to connect to terminal 50 (ignition) and one to connect to terminal 15 (ignition).
    The question is: where can I find this two terminals?
    Thank you!

    Bye
    Fabio

    P.S. If somebody want to see this diagram, it's here: http://www.waeco.com/tmp/TFL100_EB_10s_02.pdf

    It's just a connection to Ignition live mate, it is the Green and Orange cable on your module mate, make sure it is live while cranking

    50 is the starter circuit

    15 is ignition live (while cranking)

    Autosparks those instructions that they made for that unit are Sh*t it says D is ignition but i see how you have looked at it and yes it stands to reason that it's the starter but do they not know how to draw a technical drawing contact switch While cranking Means when the ignition is turned on their will be power and when you turn the key to start it the power does not go out and then come back on when the car is started, Basically it is constant once the ignition is on it is on until you turn the car off Just go to the barrel or glove box for the wires.

    In fact the italian installation manual says (literal translation):

    Terminal 15: ignition
    Terminal 50: starting process

    So, if I've understood, this would to be the diagram:
    • 7 red --> battery +12V: this is for Coming home function
    • 2 orange --> terminal 15: it's live since I turn the key until I turn the car off. This give power to drl
    • 3 green --> terminal 50: it's live just when I turn the key to turn the car on. Then it 's off. This avoids to turn on the drl during starting motor's phase.
    Is this correct?
    Just another question: are "terminal 15 and 50" universal codes?

    Thanx

    The way I read it mate sounds correct as you have just put it

    Common circuits on cars are mentioned by numbers rather than colours so

    30 - Battery postive
    31 - Earth
    15 - Igniton live while cranking

    Lighting circuits even get numbers
