Ignition Control Unit wire
« on: 13 January 2021, 02:27 AM »
Could someone please inform me where the brown wire (see picture)that goes into the ignition control module goes? I am thinking it was earthed on the side of the coil but i am unsure. I have tried looking at some wiring diagrams on here but i am unable to understand them.
Thanks

The brown wire is your ground/earth and must be connected to the body.  You will see the coil has a mounting bracket which bolts onto the body, connect the eyelet there once you clean the area to ensure good contact to the body.
