#1 3.8 wiring confusion

Post by Robbiee » Sun Oct 24, 2021 3:10 pm

Help please

I am reworking my 3.8 62 car
New loom from auto sparks

I’m cannot establish any connection between the ignition warning light (white wire going into bulb holder)) and the white wires at the fuse boxes!

There is another spade connected white wire also braided which also emerges behind the speedo/rev counter area and I can get a connection to that one (not sure of its function though)

Any ideas

There should be a white wire in the loom that has a spade to go to fuse 6 and a bullet to connect to your light.

Confirm by using an ohm meter.

Thanks Andrew
I’ll check it out when I’ve slept on it😊
I have a “beep” meter to help!
