    I have the same setup and absolutely hate the arb harness.

    Anyone have a diagram of how to wire this up?

    Just in case someone wants to install an ARB compressor to their vehicle with any auxiliary relay system.

    If you're only installing the ARB compressor, and don't mind splicing the included ARB cable, the 4 prong connector (that isn't connected by default) has a purple wire that is for the compressor activation.

    Then you just need to connect the (2 thick red wires) to battery + (1x thick black wire + 1x thin black wire) to ground.

    Lastly, power the activation switch by connecting the purple wire to a 15A fuse. ARB's included switch is rated for 15A, so it's on a 15A fuse (photo shows 20A, but it's on a 15A).

    Lastly, as per ARB's instructions, here is the same plug that I marked in green in the photo above, and with their instructions.
    The wire loom I have connecting to the relay system can be purchased here, and includes the correct wire colors (purple wire, instead of red).
    Blue arrow is where the purple wire leads to.

    Tldr: plug in purple wire from 4 prong wiring harness to activate compressor. This is the 12v compressor activation

    You need to splice it, or get a $20 cable from someone. Couldn't find the connector after an hour of searching on mouser.

    A different route and what I did with my ARB Twin/Auxbeam panel: If you don't plan on running airlockers (therefore don't need actuators) then you don't need three switches and you don't need to splice, you can cut before the "PLUG-IN FITTING" labeled in the image from joeto3 post. Then purple wire to positive/black to negative, wire up to the battery as you would normally and you're good to go.

    I have this switch and the ARB Twin works great! Really easy to set everything up.

    Rip, yeah I have been running it like this for years with no issues. They are probably referring to powering the compressor and you definitely don't want to run power directly to/through the switch panel for something that big (compressor, winch, etc) but powering the switch is totally fine.

    The Auxbeam "switch" only replaces the rocker "switch" all the other wiring stays the same on anything you run.
