Help - orphan wire (purple/green near ECM)


Recommended Posts

OK so I've had the boot out of the car to clean up and refurb the coolant and charge cooler header tanks.

I needed to disconnect all of the multiconnectors running to the relays in the boot... When I come to put everything back together there is an orphan wire with a female spade connector that I do not remember undoing! The end of the wire was in the recess below the RH fuel filler neck and I am confident that it doesn't belong in the engine bay and it doesn't go as far as the relays. It is not bound in to a loom and could connect anywhere from the fuel tanks back to the fuel filler.

Thought it may be low fuel or fuel pump, but wrong colour according to the manual - anyone have any ideas?

HELP!

Thanks in advance, Ian

Ian

Well the G/P wire is the live wire for the rear brake lights.

There is one G/P wire which is spliced in and fed to the optional rear mounted brake light. As such, on ours this is left dangling somewhere.

Congrates - looks like you've found it. :P

To make sure - Just stick a meter on it and press the brake pedal.

Ah cool!

I didn't think I'd unplugged it...

Now I can get back to the serious business of finding out what's wrong with my turbo...

Thanks Simon - you da man! B)

Trouble in't rear!

Halfway home from Oxford the other week and no boost - and not just that but judging by the sound of it I think someone stole my Lotus Twin Cam and replaced it with a Transit lump...

Hoping it will have fixed itself while I've been taking apart things that were working perfectly well and painting them!
