If the dash lights don't even come on then your missing a power feed of the battery or an earth.

It should fire without the ECU.

Any suggestions as to where to look for the power feed? I'm pretty sure I've got all the earths stuck into the end of chassis rails for testing purposes.

Do you get +12v at the ignition switch?

No idea to be honest, what does that look like and where would it be on the loom, and how do I check?

Ok so I had another dig around the loom and I found the female connection for the picture above, it was on the section of the loom next to the headlight so I'd been looking in the wrong spot :S I still don't get dash lights or ignition though so I've taken some pictures of the other bits I'm unsure of:

Exhibit A (has what looks like some vacum tubes attached)


Exhibit B (this makes a clicking sound when the main battery negative is first connected)


Exhibit C

Exhibit D


This also will make a clicking sound when the wire below (also mentioned in previous posts above) touches the negative on the battery.


I thought this was worth a try as I found a picture I took of the battery negative in the donor before I disconnected it and its the only wire I could find on the loom that looked like it.

Hmm so skimming through the haynes service manual and I'm guessing the edis is the ignition switch in my setup? If so how do I test it's getting power? any other ideas what might be wrong?

D is a relay, don't recognise it out of context. Has it got any writing on it?
