I'm hoping a sparky can help me out with the following... I'm a little technical but not over confident in my understanding, but willing to have a go with the right information...... sounds dangerous doesn't it!
I've acquired and fitted a new unused wiring loom to my 1991 gt11 and as always there is a problem.... after some mooching through my Haynes manual I think this loom is for the pre 1984 GTi spec, there are more connectors for the instrument binnacle, presumably for the MFA.
The headlight switch connector on the new loom I acquired is black and on my old loom it was red. Now on the red plug there are two extra wires a thin grey one which is for the dimmable illumination if I remember rightly and a grey and yellow one which ends in a single connector. I can't figure out if this was attached to anything????
In my infinite wisdom I've carefully swapped all the wires except for the two outstanding wires as my intention was to source where these two outstanding wires can be reconnected. I now don't have headlights, main beam or fog lights. Just to add insult to injury after spending sometime looking through my spares box I've found another light switch which fits the original black lighting connector.
Do I undo my rewire of the red block and put the original black connector back in place and try the switch that fits or is there a simpler way of fixing this problem.... other that sourcing a loom for a 1991 spec GT11. Oh I hope not....
Appreciate your thoughts and prayers.....
