    I found these to mystery wires and cannot seem to find where they go. They looked as though they were ripped off. A mechanic thought they where for the computer advance because its tan with a black stripe, but I checked the circut, the tan/black wire in that pic next to it is the one. There is also a black/white next to it. Does anybody have any ideas to what the heck these are?

    Blk/Wht...is ground for the ecm...and related sensors for the ecm.

    Tan/Blk is for the distributor module according to my chart...grab an ohm meter and ohm the wire from the ecm connector D5 to the wire and see if its a match...

    Okay, i'll ground the black wire. Maybe thats why my O2 isnt reading anything because its not getting the ground, well my A/F guage doesnt respond. This blows /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
