Oops! Wiring issue
Posted 16 May 2011 - 03:42 PM
I decided to fix some wiring issues in my 91 loyale. Some of the wires on this connector http://s748.photobuc...nt=IMAG0480.jpg were messed up, so I went to the junk yard and clipped a new one. I made sure that the new one had all the right wires on it and everything, but what I didn't notice was that there are 2 wires that are colored the same until I cut the one off of my car. I don't know if you can tell, but there are 2 black/white wires on this connecter. I was hoping someone could help me identify what they were and where they go to. The connector is located behind the fuse box on the driver's side. The wire that was goobered up was the large green/yellow one. Anyway, I made a best guess as to which wires went where and the car runs, but now the CE light just blinks non-stop and the ECU gives a 5 light flash (Vehicle ID?). It seems to run fine, so I don't plan on changing anything unless I find out I'm tricking the computer or something.

It is hard to say what connector ties to. The easiest thing to do may be to cut those wire in question and then see what happens. You don't want to leave the system in the test mode.

that match your description is for the starter. But those look pretty small to send power to the starter unless they control a relay. It could be possible that they do the same thing as in they both send/receive power when the circuit is closed. One could send power to the starter relay and one could kill the power to the accessories. This is all hypothetical cause I've never worked on the under dash wiring on a 91' loyal but when I put a new back hatch on my 85' I had two wires that were the same color and did the same thing. Sorry if I didn't help you get any further.
