Question about 1985 Toyota Corolla 2 Door
Recently i noticed my windscreen wipers and horn weren't working. So we changed the corrosponding fuse but then when we started it and revved it, it stalled and wouldnt idle. So we changed the ___________ tube and it idled again. Now sometimes, at least a couple of times a week, it won't start and the battery sounds dead. Once i connect a battery pack it starts, but the battery is in good condition. An auto electronic looked at it for me but couldnt diagnose a problem, but thinks the yellow and black wire may be a problem. Does anyone have any idea what the yellow and black wire is for, where it leads to, or does anyone have a wiring diagram??? Any assistance is greatly appreciated
YOU HAVE AN EARTHING PROBLEM MOST LIKELY A FAULTY EARTH STRAP BETWEEN THE ENGINE BLOCK AND THE CAR BODY [THIS IS A SEPARATE THICK CABLE OR FLAT BRAIDED CABLE WHICH IS ATTACHED AT ONE END TO THE ENGINE BLOCK - USUALLY ON THE CYLINDER HEAD, AND THE OTHER END ATTACHED TO THE FIREWALL OR CHASSIS RAIL] IF THIS WIRE IS BROKEN OR THE ENDS ARE CORRODED OR LOOSE THEN YOU WILL GETTHE SORT OF SYMPTOMS YOU DESCRIBE.
RUN A NEW CABLE FROM ANY POINT ON THE ENGINE BLOCK TO A PART OF THE BODYWORK AND SEE IF THAT CURES YOUR PROBLEMS
