bumpers and ignition problem

g'day has any one got a front and rear bumper off a TF cortina that is still in good con...also i'm wondering if any one has a wireing diagram for a TE cortina as im a littel stuffed at the moment my ignition is not working. when i turn the key it wont fire the starter and the only way i can start it is by useing a screw driver . so if any one can help that would be great
maybe i have just put the wires in the rong way
p.s.its for the ignition to the starter,coil,fuse box...ect...
cheers ROB250

Re: bumpers and ignition problem

dont have a wiring diagram but i have it in my head. i'll describe it best i can.

yellow wire comes from battery/fusebox into the back of the ignition switch. the other wires on the back of the switch are, red/blue trace starter motor, green/blue trace accessories, reg/green ignition.

the red/green runs to a few places on the car but in the engine bay it will only run to the positive side of the coil. the red/blue wire will run thru the park neutral switch on an auto and out to the starter motor. make sure u have 12 volts coming out of this wire. if u have a reduced voltage there, use it to trigger a relay to activate the starter motor.

hope that helps, any grief lemme know and i'll try and explain it different

Re: bumpers and ignition problem

most definitely. that is probably very much your problem. the plug that goes to the park/neutral switch on the gearbox has four wires. two are red with a blue trace. join em together and try that.

Re: bumpers and ignition problem

yeah of course. btw the other two wires(pink/black) in the plug are what u connect to your reverse light switch for the reverse lights.
