It is a difference on the US Spec car. Discussed briefly here.

US Spec car has 4 wires and other counties only three.

This may help explain the difference, in the US Owner's Manual F113 is for Amplifier/Trailer Brake Provision. In other countries it is the Air Compressor circuit. At present it is another INEOS mystery to unravel.

Hmm I think I may check the Redarc Brake installation instructions. I have a sneaky suspicion these wires may have been used to power my electric brakes.

Cheers

I think the black from the under seat is power per the redarc instructions. My other cables are bluish-gray, lavender, and yellow with a red stripe. Those aren't mentioned in the Redarc instructions so it's either a difference in the 24s like mine or they're extra. Will try to check this weekend.

Here you have it, number two being the "hardest to find" lower one (Switch EXT1, 10A), for those people with the "high load auxiliary switch panel.
Everybody should have this one in his car, even those with only one battery.
I don't think this was documented before on this forum, and even if it was, well than we have twice the information :)

How I did? I took a medical injection needle and did put it under an angle in the insulation of the wires, and then connected my multimeter, the one I keep in my car.
[EDITED] only the "live" wire (12V) gets the injection needle, the other multimeter (black) goes to a suitable metal part of the car (ground or negative pole).
Thank You Jean! Top shelf my friend.

I wonder if any of those external electrical sockets could be re-purposed to feed a coaxial two-way radio antenna cable to the roof? The antenna itself could then be attached to the adjacent tie down rail (give or take ground plane considerations).
Probably not as RG (radio guide) cable is of a different physical configuration from DC power wire.

Exactly what I did with mine:

So after having read through the entirety of this thread (as well as searching through the forum itself) I have yet to find definitive answer as to how the winch isolator terminates under the bonnet for those of us Without the Winch but with a Front Mounted Hitch and High Load Auxiliary Switch Panel (i.e. is there a cable or wired termination point after the isolator). I searched my vehicle for about 5 minutes but these cables are pretty difficult to trace given how tight the space they occupy is, so I came here.

According to this post by @DCPU there appears to be a plugged 10 pin connector somewhere up above the bumper and behind the headlight (Right Side)... https://www.theineosforum.com/threads/high-load-auxiliary-switch-panel.12410279/post-1333177482

Has this been confirmed to be what I am looking for?

The placement of the winch isolator on my vehicle (LHD, Petrol, Trialmaster) is different than that of the photos @CountyV8 provided in this thread... https://www.theineosforum.com/threads/whats-this.12411733/

Mine is separate from the jumper terminal and located closer to the firewall (See photos) I don't know if this matters in the context of my question, but figured I would mention it.

I also optioned the front tow plate on my Trialmaster prior to learning that it's unsuitable for use with a portable winch. I haven't read all the posts but surmised that unless the Red winch was installed on the production line, then its requisite cabling was not fitted, possibly to deter (me!) fitting a portable winch....:unsure:

I believe this connector near the rear tow hitch is part of the high load auxiliary switch panel. Does anyone know what kind of connectors fit this?

Thank you

As an addition to all of the hard work of others before me on this thread and for the benefit of those of us with right hand side drive with high load auxiliary panel switch panel, this is how to locate the 10A and 25A under the bonnet. On RHS the auxiliary pairs are hidden and difficult to get to without removing the air filter. Note that in the photos below that I also removed the lower part of the air filter. It does come out with a big tug but is a pain to put back in so don't do it. The 10A wires on my car were "easy" to see and taped to the visible side of the loom. The 25A pair were hidden and taped to the back of the same loom and were very difficult to free even with long nose pliers. The two pairs are quite different with the thinner pair having a yellow stripe on the purple wire and are assumed to be the 10A. These pairs should be switched by EXT 1 and EXT 5 for the 10A and 25A respectively. I will update once tested.
