ive got a 1.8cvh. Ive got it to turn over, and was being an idiot earlier, as i wanst looking at the ignition coils in my last post. Ive now found the ignition coils, and the plug from the edis connects to it. I now seem to have the ignition coils sorted, however when i was trimming my loom a mont or 2 back, i cut off all the plugs to the steering column, including the ignition switch. I am now wondering what i am meant to connect the black/yellow wire to that is on the ignition switch. I know the blue/black one goes tot he starter solenoid, but i dont know about the yellow/balck one.


Ill be asking alot of probaly very obvious questions as i dont know much about wiring this engine. Thanks


Edit: just saw your other post. i have connected the plug fromt he front body loom to the +12v. Now to figure out what the yellow.black wire is meant to be? it goes to pin 10 of the edia and the engine managemnet relay according to the haynes diagram

you'll just have to do a bit at a time, be careful because the wires tend to change colour as they go along!!

Do you have the engine loom with the three multiplugs ( 4, 6 , 8 pin ) Still intact.

It's 10 years since I have worked on a CVH but the wiring to the engine hookup is the same for all post 90 cars.

are those the 3 that join the main loom to the engine loom. I have attached the 4 and 6 pin ones, however, i cant find anywhere to attach the 8 pin one. Thanks for the help so far!!!! Also i just realised that relay that the starter solenoid wire is connected to is an auto trans relay? WHats this for considering i dont have auto trans?

There's 2 different loom diagrams for the 1.8 CVH manual ( GR8!! )

Do you have Relay X1 or not?
