Does anyone have the pinouts for the D1 Radio Amplifier?
61rover said:It is the Pioneer amplifier from a 96 Disco 1. It has one large rectangular plug. I'm trying to retrofit the stock Pioneer head unit and amplifier into my Defender. I have all the info on the head unit but can't find the same for the amplifier. The previous owner removed all the stock stereo wiring and I'm having to wire it all from scratch.

KevLar said:I put together some drawings for you relating to the '96 Disco power amplifier wiring. There are 6 .jpg images of the various connectors taken from the LR Workshop Manual and 1 drawing I made of the power amp and connector pin-outs for the 1996 NAS Disco. The "CXXX" in the file names refers to the connector number in the Workshop Manual. Note that there are 2 radios listed for the '96 Disco, the "Low/Medium Line" and the "High Line". The info I'm providing is from the Low/Medium Line Radio:

Last year I had to replace my power amp because the circuit board had failed due to galvanic corrosion Pretty poor design in my opinion... When I called the dealer, I found the price of the amp was something like $450, so I first thought of replacing the stock amp with a good 3rd party amp for less than replacing the OEM amp. I pulled the stock amp and radio and traced all the pin-outs, but then I ended up finding a used amp on eBay from RoverGuy.com for about $50. When I installed the used amp I also pulled the stock LR radio/cassette deck and replaced it with a Blaupunkt, and wired my iPod into it
Anyway, hope this helps, and let me know if you have any questions
Look for connector C412 in the Discovery Electrical Manual as seen here: http://www.landy.ee/manuals/electricity/Disco_Elec.Troubleshooting Manual - LRL0077ENG (1997).pdfA-4025
