Sounds like an aftermarket addition to me. Anything not working in the dash?


THIS is the wire and yes a lot is not working ie fuel pump and power to the ignition I have a reall mess on my hands


You do have a mess. I would get yourself a wiring schematic of your car and start tracing. This wire looks like a OEM wire. Possibly wire that supplies power to distribution block for ignition and fuel system. A Haynes manual might come in handy right now. Good luck. I'll do some digging in my manuals in mean time to see if ignition and fuel have common power supply.


thanks for all the help
