  • [Corsa B 1993-2000] switched ignition live where would it be in my engine loom?

    hi, I am putting the c16se this xmas break- my only question is I need to wire in the switched ignition live wire into my corsa loom, this will be in the engine loom in the bay wouldn't it? and its the thin black wire right guys? I now the permanent live (red wire) goes straight to battery positive terminal.

    can someone confirm this for me / advise? thanks

            so I could wire / tap into the black switched ign live into the reverse light switch instead of hacking through the engine loom?! never thought of that , this would be a safe'ish way of doing this I hope craig?(have many others done this ?)

                take it the best way is to somehow splice it into the black wire in the switch and solder and tape up craig?

                  Dont think its black at switch from memory possibly yellow and black you will have to test but as you said solder and insulate

                    wow thanks so much for that, I didn't really want to tamper with the starting and charging loom so this seems ideal.

                    if I wanted to try it in the donor car before taking it out , shall I just cut it of where the other guy wired it in the engine loom and connect to the appropiate reverse light switched live wire and test ? just want to check before I take it all out and transfer it all over? would that be ok to check just snipping it of where it is and testing at the said switch craig?

                    thank you so much seriously been headscratching like mad today!

                        brilliant, will have to put loom back in tomorrow and ecu lol but best to try tomorrow double check then remove nd transfer to my tidier shell

                        p.s is there any need to in line fuse the permanent live (to battery) or/and switched live at all?or are they already fused just thought id ask

                        thanks again

                          No need for a inline fuse its already fused from reverse light wireing
