Back to the top

mk1 gti cabby

hi hope all well,
daughters car is 1.8 gti cabby 1990 with electronic ign and picked up just over a year ago with mess of wiring but worked.. really road over winter but now currently have no spark although it has fired on literally 1 cylinder once.
checked leads and coil with meter but just in case swapped with spares..hall sender seems ok..tacho has never worked but that was in the list to do...
so trying to find out where 2 black wires from coil (primary?) go to, as one seems to occasionally earth (meter) (literally continuity then nothing,)  believe 1 goes to fuseboard not sure about the other.. age is becoming a big old number so any help welcomed, thanks

Black wires are not grounds.  Brown are grounds.

What do Divorces, Great Coffee, and Car Electrics all have in common?

They all start with GOOD Grounds.
