Well, turns out the wires with ringed ends were grounding.Also a query on the loom....
Putting my Year 2000 1.7 back together. Over the years, several garages have 'fixed' wiring issues.
Are these wires in the driver's footwell (under the fusebox) supposed to be connected to anything?
Also in this loom of wires, the brown wire had been cut - anyone know what it is and where it was meant to go?
