Hi, Mini Forum Members.
Looking for some help on a couple of wiring issues:
Following a complete shell strip-down, I commenced re-installing the wiring looms. I hit a snag in a couple of places where the year 2000 Mpi wiring diagrams can't help. (Sourced from Rover)
The interior light wiring diagram shows the conventional 3 wires running to the light - namely the 12v feed, the wire to the door switches and the light fitting earth, however on the loom is also a Red wire which has a connector on it but it appears to have been taped "back" as if not in use.? If I offer the loom up to where it runs to the interior light, this red wiring is not long enough to reach anything in the vicinity. I've tried to trace the wire back into the main loom (behind the dash) but it goes into the big bundle there and I can't see where it exits.! Anybody got any ideas what this is for?
Secondly - this Mpi model was fitted out with a Rover factory security/immobiliser device - This works off the door switches and switches fitted on the boot lid and bonnet shut plate - I cannot find any information (as again it's not on the Rover wiring diagrams) as to where the wires fitted to these switches fitted run too.?
Obviously I can find the wires at the switch ends but cannot locate the other ends.! Again anybody come across this and can give me some pointers would be much appreciated.
