DIN standards are published by Beuth Verlag.  You can get to them via 
http://www.din.de and following the trails.  I had no luck with the English 
search engine, but the German one found DIN 72552-1 and -2, respectively the 
"Purpose, Fundamentals and Requirements" and "Meanings" documents at DM27.20 
and DM45.90 respectively.  I didn't think -3 and -4 looked interesting.
The German title is "Klemmbezeichnungen in Kraftfahrzeugen".
