Sorry, I can't make out what your question is or what the picture is supposed to be. Maybe you could start over.

Here is a wiring diagram, shows colors of wires. click to enlarge

That sounds like the contact for the key bell.


Is there a wire clip or plug afixed to the black wire? Vehicle wires are not installed with bare wire wrapped around a screw and tightened. If the wire was pulled from its plug, there would only be about an eighth of an inch piece of bare wire on the end. Did you purchase the vehicle new? Was there any aftermarked worked on the vehicle? Black normally indicates a power connection. Is the wire live?

I'm not looking at it right now but the wire is separate from the rest and has a brown clip on it that looks like it may connect to the ignition switch somehow
