Default Re: Resistor wire

The wire resistor to the coil is in the harness. If you unwrap the harness from the coil back towards the firewall you will see it.
It is a thick pink wire if you keep following it back you will get to a red/green (From memory) you need to run a new wire from that point.

The other wire is probably going to the starter solenoid.
