R33 door lock wiring & parklight bulbs in the headliights


Recommended Posts

Anyone have a wiring diagram for the locking switches on the drive & passenger door?

Also this might be a dumb question but how do you change the parker bulbs that are in the actual headlights? (not the ones on the corners).

I tried twisting the grey plug under the main circular cap on the back of the headlight but it wouldn't move and I really don't want to get the pliers onto it unless I know that I'm twisting the right thing the right way!

Or is it also in the main assembly for the headlight where the main bulb lives?

there are no parker lights in the actual main drivers lamp assembly for a 33 ...only on the side of it which u have already stated. to get the bulb out of the lamp(not the parkers) u unscrew the big round plastic cap and there should be a wire clip that you push in and up to unlock it(from memory)...then u just have to pull the bulb out by the wires. i see no reason to use plyers.

as for the locking switches on the drivers side...if ur wanting to disable the lock for the passengers side so that it wont open once u lock it then just cut the brown wire from the main control unit. u will still be able to lock it. ive already done this to mine. its amazing how something so small could potentialy be so costly. should be one of the first things to do to a skyline/import when purchased.

hope this helps

Cool thanks! Yep that was the plan. I was thinking of installing a kill switch for the unlock switches on both doors....no sense in them operating when no one is in the car.

Is it also a brown wire on the driver's door?

As for the parking lights, see the other thread. Where I'll try to post some pics tomorrow morning... :-)

its the brown wire commin from the control box for power windows and stuff on the drivers door that u cut to disable the passengers lock switch from unlocking.  if u just cut the wire on the passengers doors then when u unlock the door on the drivers side it wont unlock would be a pain in the ass.

Yes and No.....

I cut this wire, then spliced it into the (purple I think) wire, which has power with ignition on... (use a multimeter to find wich wire has power with ignition), and I thought it would disable the lock with power off....

funny thing is now, I cannot unlock the passenger door from that switch (even when i wired it back up the way it was). I can lock from the switch, but not unlock.....

I can still unlock it from the drivers door lock, and with my keyless entry wich is good, but you would need a wiring diagram to make it do what u want it to do....

Well if there's a wire that supplies power when the ignition is on you could wire up a relay to act as an switch to join the brown wire when the ignition is on and disconnect when the ignition is off.

But for me this isn't what I want to do...I want a switch hidden from sight that when activated will allow the unlock switches to operate on both the driver's and passenger's door, regardless if the ignition is on or not.

doesnt that already happen when the igintion is off?? i mean u can lock and unlock the doors without the keys in it anyways? sounds like u wanna make a kill switch for the locks when u leave the car rite..but can turn it back on so u can use the switch as normal when u get back in?? but then depending on the way its wired up if u open the drivers door with the key it might not open the passengers side cause its been killed. or the remote key entry wouldnt work....i dunno...not sure wat ur plainin to do.

Sorry let me be a bit more clear....

Kill switch off = everything works as normal

Kill switch on = only the internal unlock/lock switches on the door don't work, everything else is as normal

So this just requires finding one of the wires off each internal unlock/lock switch and putting a double pole single throw switch in series, to act as the kill switch.

    • I'm not sure if this helps or not. I recently upgraded to R34 Vspec2 Brembo's on the S2 Stag. I used this braided kit: https://safebrake.biz/home/292-skyline-gt-r-r34-awd-26tt-brake-upgrade-safebrake-performance-hoses.html Beyond this I got the R33gtr front brake hard lines, that go over axle hub just behind the dust plate and all lined up beautifully.  The braided lines were same length as the stock ones. Needed to buy 2x longer bolts for one of the hard mount points for the braided hoses up the front. Trim rear dust shields so could fit 322mm discs. It's a pretty straight forward job.
    • Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has changed their stock front upper /  inner control arm bushes for nolathane and has any advice on doing so? See pic circled in red with the bushes im referring to. Can I do it myself? ie. with an air chisel and a suitable sized/diameter socket on the end. Or is it a hydraulic press job? I've already done the outside bushes, the originals popped of easy with the air chisel as they had a little lip to get some purchase on. Cheers, Pete    
    • Mate, great looking R33!  It's not too late to go European and spend your days talking about how you went from v1.01 to v1.03 of your Stage 1.5 tune and now you can bake off the line holding your chai latte without spillage. 🥲 I feel you're at the point of no return now, brace yourself!  
    • I have a Toyota Estima hybrid AHR20 2013. The diffrential arm bushing need replacing. The OEM differential arm part number is 52380-28050. Please let me know if you know anyone who can supply or supply and install the differential arm bushing. I have asked Febest Auto Parts, Auto-Parts and Auto Plus Parts, without any luck. Thank you in advance for any relevant information.  
    • There's a guy that calls himself Boosted International. You're able to request non standard designs off him too. That cost me $67 delivered so not bhed.. https://boostedintl.com/product/r33-gtst-gts-gtr-ashtray-gaugeholder/
