Hey all, my 1991 mini has lonely wires hanging down from the back dash area inside the car.
I have no clue what these wires are for and would like to find out.
What is the best way for me to get this sorted and tidied up ?
Any suggestions welcomed
Thanks all

    Have you tried turning it off and on again?

There are detailed wiring diagrams in the back of the Haynes manual.

You can use those along with the colour of the wire to work out what they are for.

Thanks all, managed to work out that three of the wires are for the brake test switch, however I need one of the white connectors that for on the back of the rocker switch, cant find any anywhere, the one I have is ok but cant get the old wires out ;(
Sorry for being such a gal
