the wife was watching crap on tv so back to the garage, fitted any earths i could find connected battery and no fuses went so thats good, if i turn the ignition on i get mileage reading and oil gauge moves but nothing else on the dash, no lights etc so i guess im missing wires. if i try to start i get a click from the ignition relay but the heavy blue wire from it goes nowhere.
found another couple of cut wires i need to trace, looks like they were part of the aftermarket imobiliser.
anyone have a link to a good wiirng diagram, the haynes book is poor

haha, yep I did similar and ended up making my own one up, you do need the dashlight dimmer switch to get dash illumination as well, the joys ...... :)

managed to bypass the hazard switch with a temp bit wire, i now have headlamps in main and dip , all indicators, rear fog light and brake lights working off the new pressure switch , i have no tail lights or dash lights or reverse lights so i need to figure that next, i have soldered bulbs onto the end of each wire so i can see whats working
